Year 11's Alternative Programme

After the Duke of Edinburgh expedition for some and a well-deserved rest for the others, following the end of their exams, we thought we would provide something special for Year 11 this week.

  • Year 11 BVIS 2016 (1)
  • Year 11 BVIS 2016 (2)
  • Year 11 BVIS 2016 (3)
  • Year 11 BVIS 2016 (4)

Drawing on the expertise of the Secondary staff we developed an enthralling and challenging selection of collapsed days based around different themes and rooted with strong academic theory.

Monday saw the students cracking complex codes and conducting an AS Level standard experiment in Science to save Royal City from a terrorist threat. Tuesday challenged them to devise scientific experiments to check the suitability of various types of motorcycle helmet available in Hanoi and create a video of their findings. On Wednesday we took the students to the bowling alley at Royal City and also played a game called The Cube, which requires the students to make tricky challenges for each other to complete. Thursday drew on knowledge of Geography, Economics and Science looking at the economics of natural disasters, the threat of rising sea levels and how to build solar ovens and cool shelters.

We think we found the balance between fun and challenge for this week. The staff across Maths and science worked incredibly hard to create these activities that were not only engaging but also challenging to every member of Y11. The proof is in the results, the presentations, photos and videos show that even during these fun sessions our students were learning all the time- teamworking skills, vocabulary, problem solving and lateral thinking. A very successful week we hope to deliver to subsequent Year 11s in the future.
