Students in X24 Skipper and Admiral will be presenting their learning from our expedition Small Change on 5th December at 4.30pm in XP East School. Students have been working towards a number of Learning Targets focused on the GCSE text A Christmas Carol and the historical context of the period when Dickens produced A Christmas Carol. We like to invite you to hear from your son or daughter and see the work they have produced in order to answer the guiding question Why do we still need charity?
We will also be asking, if possible, for donations to support the work of the Balby Church food and clothing bank.
FOR THE FOOD BANK: food that just requires hot water adding: e.g Instant porridge, Cup Soups, Mug shots, Instant noodles and Pot noodles (Supermarket own brands are ideal) FOR THE CLOTHES BANK: all types but the greatest demand is for jeans, joggers for men and all clothes for children aged 6-18.
A number of students from X24 have been working extremely hard both in lesson and also in the completion of their extended study. They have completed these tasks to a high standard and also made sure that they have been handed in on time.
The students that I would like to give a special mention to are Alfie Lockey (X24 Admiral), Bella Herring (X24 Skipper) and Amber Clark (X24 Skipper) who have all finished the two studies (paper cut and sharpie block design) in class and also their extended study (Artist research).
All three of these students are now well on the way to creating a lovely charcoal study for their developing and exciting art portfolio.
Well done Alfie, Amber and Bella! Keep up the good work!
Today in HUMS Skipper worked hard analysing source material regarding city life for the urban poor. Some great shoulder partner discussions and fantastic in depth exit tickets produce. Great work Skipper!
Last week our X24/ Year 9 Skipper students used online language learning software to practise conjugating Spanish verbs in the present tense. Having received feedback on their grammatical accuracy they then applied this knowledge to the completion of GCSE standard photocard tasks on our current media expedition. Needless to say that I was delighted by their focus and high levels of productivity throughout. Well done Skipper!
On Friday XP and XP East students welcomed Alun and his team from Balby Church. it was inspiring to hear about the work they do. Alun also revealed our guiding question for this expedition: Why do we still need charity?
We would like to invite X23 / year 9 parents and carers of students involved in the recent Barcelona study visit to a Presentation of Learning on Tuesday 9th July 2019 from 5.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. in the heart-of-the-school drama area.
Good evening. X23 will be going on their final Fieldwork (weather dependent) tomorrow for Bioshock. For this reason, I would like to suggest that students bring wet weather clothing and footwear as the current forecast suggests rain.
