Employability

Our topic this term has been working with others. We have successfully run 2 cinema events for the college. We have previously been working on planning and organising these events.

After ½ term we are due to evaluate the events and give ourselves feedback on what we could improve upon.

Can each pupil write a review of their cinema event. To include:

  • What film we showed
  • How the group worked together to plan the event. Including something the group did well and not well, and something they individually did well and not so well. I will need examples!
  • What health and safety issues they planned for, and what they did to ensure they ran a safe cinema.
  • How they felt the event went overall. Including a specific highlight for them.
  • Give the group a mark out of 10 for:
    • Teamwork
    • Communication
    • Organisation

English

We have been basing our work around eating out and takeaways this ½ term.

Entry 2 and 3: Your favourite takeaway. 

Write a fact file about someone’s favourite takeaway. Ask an adult at home what is their favourite take-away and why this is their choice.  Is there a particular meal from this take-away that they like? What do they like to drink when having this meal?  Where in the house do they like to eat it? (e.g. dining room, in front of the TV).

Level 1 and 2: Your ideal takeaway shop

They were asked on Monday to design their dream takeaway menu. Some may have started this, and I’m afraid they might have to start again from home.

They need to remember what they have learnt about features, design, titles, layout, products, descriptions of meals.

Think, pictures, colours and yumminess!

Maths

We have been basing our work around eating out and takeaways this ½ term.

Entry 2 and 3: A favourite takeaway.

Calculate the total price of your adult’s favourite meal, including the drink. Entry 2 you can use a calculator for this. Entry 3, I’m sorry, you need to do it without!

If you only had cash to pay with and that was a £20 note and three £10 notes, which notes would you need to use and what would the change be?

Level 1 and 2: Your ideal takeaway shop

Hopefully you finished your dream menu’s from yesterday. If not, you will have to finish before you can do this!

You need to add prices to your menu.

However, you must also include:

  • 1 special offer (a percentage off)
  • 1 discount for orders over a certain price

Then, Calculate the total price of your favourite meal, including the drink.  I’m sorry, you need to do it without a calculator!

Your Mum or Dad then says they want to order something. Write down and add up their order.

As a special deal, for being the first 2 customers, you need to give yourself a discount of 20%, work out your discount and then the new total.

Extension: round up your new total to the nearest £10. How much change would you get if you paid your rounded up amount?

Options

As you all do different options, it’s a but tricky.

Horticulture: Make a list of jobs you think need doing in the garden.

Meal for one: Make a list of things you would like to learn how to cook.

Construction: Make a list of things you would like to learn how to make.

Performing arts: Make a list of your favourite films and theatre productions.

Health and social care: Make a list of craft activity sessions you could run for adults and young children.
