Year 10 2016-2017
10HH DATE: 04/04/17
10HH have been doing really well with their golden mile and have enjoyed going out most days to complete 2-3 laps of the school field. So far Taylor and Didi are in the lead with 4.35 miles each. It has been so lovely getting out in the Spring sunshine for a bit of exercise.
Most people in our class find it quite to walk this far so it is an enormous achievement that they have done so well. Brilliant work 10HH – keep up the footsteps!
10BD DATE: 6/1/17
Today in Mental wealth we learnt the excitement, joy and pleasure you can get from working as part of a dynamic team. Three groups created a bridge across two tables with only a small amount of resources. Each bridge was able to hold over 500kg of weight.
10ALP DATE: 16/11/16
10ALP had a fantastic time with the army on Thursday afternoon taking part in activities and challenges linked to Hamlet and other areas of their learning. They enjoyed crawling through all the camouflaging area and practising their target skills!
10BD DATE: 12/10/16
Today pupils in 10BD used two applications – Paint.net and Publisher – to create their own wanted posters. They had to demonstrate their ability to:
- Choose appropriate Fonts for a task
- Choose appropriate effects for a task
- Save files in correct places
10BD DATE: 5/10/16
In 10BD’s mental wealth lessons we have been discussing, debating and engaging with the ‘best’ and ‘hardest’ things about being human. Pupils broke into three groups – one group of ladies, and two of men. They then created short plays and presentations – highlighting the wonderful things and the difficulties of being different sexes. Pupils demonstrated confidence, teamwork and co-operation.
10HH DATE: 23/9/16
In the bright September sunshine we released our class butterflies into the memorial garden which still has lots of flowers for them to drink nectar from. All the pupils loved seeing the beautiful coloured butterflies and each pupil even managed to hold them before they flew away – a magical end to our class butterfly project.
