Mr Christopher Short Weekly Update 9th October

Book Week is always an exciting time in school. Although traditionally a Primary event it has grown in Secondary over the last four years to be an important part of our year. Our events are tailored towards the age of our students but it still gives an opportunity to promote the love of reading as a tool for learning and for enjoyment. Key Stage 3 students met with the two Steves, visiting authors from the UK, who gave a very animating presentation on the skills needed for writing and the importance of creativity. The Maths Department reprised their maths linked book study but this year changed the book to Alice in Wonderland. Again, there were some great costumes and top class acting! A new feature this year was staff displaying their favourite books on their classroom and office doors. It was fascinating to see the range of literature that our staff body enjoy. We had every genre represented including several non-fiction books.

As you know one of the core elements of our mission statement is Global Citizenship. The Rugby World Cup gave us an opportunity to highlight to students the strange structure of Great Britain because England (which many students think is Britain) were eliminated from the competition but Wales, Scotland and Ireland weren’t. I’m not sure all students fully understand rugby or the differences between United Kingdom/Britain/Great Britain/England but they would have certainly learnt more from the various conversations amongst our staff this week! Mr Rowlands has had a good week.
