The pace of learning has been intense over the past few weeks. Below are just a few insights into the learning that has been taking place across all year groups!
Years 10 – 13 have been busy completing their IGCSE and A level courses so that their grades and rank orders can be sent to the exam boards in England. They have worked tirelessly and have produced some outstanding work, showing their absolute commitment to achieving great grades, despite these unprecedented circumstances that we find ourselves in. Of course, we wish them every success for their final grades which will be determined by CIE and Pearson EdExcel and published in August.
In English students have been studying literature. Year 6 have been study 'The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes. After deconstructing and gaining a greater understanding of the language, they have created 'Wanted!" posters for the Highwayman and are now working on a newspaper article about the events in the poem. Year 8 started reading a novel called "Walk Two Moons", a coming of age story about a girl going on a road trip and dealing with the loss of her mother. They have been piecing together parts of the map of the USA map to predict where the main character will stop en route. In the meanwhile, Year 9 have been studying Macbeth and in the last week have been taking lessons in the Valley where they have been getting ready to act out a soliloquy!
