So all students have looked at how they have done over the course of the year and given themselves measurable targets that we will review again next term.
Year 10 and year 9 parents meetings also took place this week, allowing staff and parents to have in-depth conversations about each student’s learning and progress. These sessions are very important to us and we value the exchange of information and parents’ feedback.
Finally today, Year 10 set off on their IGCSE Geography field trip. The topic that is being studied is rivers and the way that these change as they move downstream. The students had to measure changes and collect data along the course of the local river. They measured the width, depth and speed, as well as looking at the size and shape of the stones. They will use this data in the next academic year to write their coursework which will account for over 25% of their final IGCSE Geography grade.
