Just some of the beautiful work produced by X25 Admiral during the term. There has been some good grappling!
Year 8 (X25). A reminder to parents / carers the vaccination nurses will be in school on Thursday 13th for all students boys and girls who have given permission to have the vaccine. Please check with your child that they have handed in the form for this vaccine The school is still waiting on 14 students to hand them in. Those students were given another form today to take home . Please email with any concerns firstname.lastname@example.org.
In X25 we have been focusing on the Craftsmanship and Quality of our work. In the first session of our immersion we explored the historical concept of change and continuity and what factors affect change. Students worked really hard in all three Humanities sessions to create several note catchers that we will keep referring back to throughout the expedition.
I could of taken a photo of any students work as they were all beautiful, however Grace and Declan’s work stood out.
Well done Admiral, Keep this up and your books will look amazing by the end of the expedition.
Students from both Admiral and Skipper will be presenting this terms learning to parents on 9th December. This will consist of two parts that link the final question of “Why should world poverty matter to us in Doncaster?”, We hope to see all X24 parents here to support such an awesome cause.
As an adjustment to the above, X24 Admiral will be presenting at XP East and X24 Skipper will be presenting at XP
X24 Skipper and Admiral did brilliantly this evening at their POL. It was lovely to see them presenting their work so confidently.
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.
Thank you in advance the Year 9 Team
So far this term, X24 have collected data from countries around the world, considered if they are comparable with each other and if not how they could change the format, discussed what type of data it is, starting to consider what type of sampling method would be best for this type of data and are now learning about the different averages we could use to analyse the data. Overall it has been a successful start to Year 9. Keep it up!
There are some examples of their beautiful work below:
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!
X24 have been working hard finding a Sample of data, creating some beautiful work. They were finding a simple random sample and stratified random sample.
X25 have made a fantastic start to the year which made it very difficult to choose the students to receive the first praise butterflies for Working Hard, Getting Smart and Being Kind.
So a massive congratulations to Harry, Jake, Ilinca, Andrew, Declan, Beth, Holly, Alfie, Matej and Franchesca.
