These are essential in order to understand what they have learned and retained over this year. It enables students to go back over their learning and consolidate their knowledge. It is also crucial that they practise working under examination conditions, so that when they sit their IGCSEs, they have acquired good revision techniques and are used to managing their time. The lessons after the exams are also very important, as teachers will go over the exam papers in detail and explain to students what they did well and how to improve. It is vital that students learn from their mistakes and go back over any gaps they may have. It is therefore very important that students do not miss any lessons at the moment, as it is a time to consolidate all their learning. We look forward to meeting you on Parents’ Evening to discuss your child’s progress this year.
This week’s assembly was led by Year 8 and focused on the theme of discrimination. Using a mixture of presentations, role play and music the students communicated what discrimination is, why people discriminate and how to prevent it. The concluding quiz demonstrated that their peers had gained valuable knowledge about an important global issue. Well done, Year 8!
