X29 Spanish and Humanities POL 18th July

Year 7 students will be presenting their Spanish and Humanities learning on the 18th July. The presentation of learning will start 4pm and finish at around 5.30pm. Spanish will be first, with students showing off their impressive Spanish skills while answering the Guiding Question ¿Te alegras de ser tú? (Are you happy being you?). This will be followed by Humanities, where students will be answering the guiding question How does water shape our world?

We look forward to seeing you then.

A reminder about Thursdays fieldwork arrangements. Please see the original post below.

Could I also ask that parents and carers do not send students with anything containing peanuts as we have a student with allergies to peanuts, also if students require an inhaler they must bring one with them on the day.

As part of the expedition Disaster!, students will carry out Fieldwork at the Natural History Museum, London, on Thursday 30th March 2017. Students will be travelling by coach to London and will therefore need to arrive at school no later than 6.15 am ready for a 6.30 am departure. We will arrive back at school later that evening at around 7.00 pm, depending on traffic. All students except those on Free School Meals will need to bring a packed lunch, and may want to bring some money for the Services on the way home where there will be an opportunity to eat, or bring a double packed lunch instead.

We ask that any students who are travel sick take their medication in good time, sit at the front of the bus, and pass their return journey medication to myself or their Crew leader.

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Year 8 Presentation of Learning

The Year 8 Presentation of Learning for students current expedition will take place on the evening of the 6th and 7th December.

We will have more details on exact timings in due course.

It is really important that every student attends, and has someone from their family come to the event to celebrate the incredible work that they are doing.


The Year 8 expedition team.

Students in 8 Admiral and 8 Skipper have been set a piece of extended study to create their own interpretation of the island discussed in Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Students must ensure they use quotations in their work alongside any drawing or design they create. In both groups students should have already decided on their pairs for this task and how they wish to present their interpretation. This work is due on 28th June.
