Year 10 are very proud of Erica today - she received an award for her One Punch Can Kill poster.
In Year 9, we had the privilege of listening to a powerful assembly led by Ann Bartlett, and were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to enter this important competition - alongside 50 other Norfolk Schools.
Erica's entry came top and has been selected to appear on the One Punch Can Kill website (www.1pck.org.uk/)
7LE enjoyed their pizza lunch today which they thoroughly deserved for topping the tutor groups with the most achievement points in the first half term.
What a great effort.
Will they hold the title for a second time this half-term? They'll be hard to beat!
At the end of this academic year the current Year 9 cohort will advance to the Key Stage 4 curriculum. At this stage in their academic studies the students will cease to follow a common education structure, but will instead embark upon the educational pathway of their choice.
Making the right choice of subjects with your child is perhaps one of the most important factors that will determine their future career prospects.
Not only will students be given the opportunity to select the subjects they wish to follow, but also the nature of the courses they will follow. The demands and expectations of the different qualification types differ greatly and it is important that our students are correctly matched to the courses that suit their learning needs.
Please find attached the Mock Exam timetable that has been shared and printed for students today. Using this, students should pick out their specific exams from the list and plan their revision for the next 3 or 4 weeks, accordingly. To support the preparation for this, I also attach a blank revision timetable plan which may be of use, although there are many mobile phone apps and other approaches which are equally effective in planning revision.
The mocks offer an opportunity for students to get into good revision and exam habits, using an approach of ‘a little and often’ to revision and planning it effectively.
On Monday, Year 8 and Year 9 watched a thought provoking and powerful dramatic performance from theatre specialists Alter Ego about County Lines.
Top Of The League! MP were top of the first tutor attendance league with an outstanding 97.55%, they pipped HJ to first place by only 0.45%!
Overall Year 9 are doing really well on attendance - please keep this up!
On the 2nd November we took four students to the City of Norwich school to compete in the UKMT Senior Team Maths Challenge.
We came 10th overall and had a great day out.
Congratulations and thanks to M Walker, J Overton, G Cushion and K Orbell for being great ambassadors for the school.
Over the initial three - four weeks of the first autumn half-term, our Year 11 students diligently prepared for their Spoken Language assessment which requires them to create and deliver a formal presentation to an audience. We are very proud that the vast majority of our cohort met the challenge head-on, with confidence and a desire to succeed.
These presentations (as a requirement of the exam board) were filmed and will be sent off to a moderator for corroboration of our marking. Admirably, some students were not ready to settle for their first grading and therefore bravely gave a second presentation to achieve their full potential.
