...and begin to switch their attention more fully to their Individual Reports in preparation for their coursework completion.
Our budding researchers have no doubt had it tough; being unable to meet face to face in groups poses new challenges and brings up new initiatives - one of which is the success of the Teams groups, enabling them to meet virtually and share their ideas and progress unimpeded towards their goals. Due to their own drive and personal ambition, our students are now very much on schedule and forging ahead whilst digging deep to continue their studies despite the shockwaves produced by the lockdown.
This week saw some of the groups complete the awareness-raising aspects of their projects in some Year group virtual assemblies. Students demonstrated superb levels of IT skills to make this happen.
Likewise, some teams are ready to display their work in the school, which will aim to heighten knowledge about their topics, such as Food Waste and environmental concerns, within our school population. All of these sessions are essential parts of their assessed coursework - and jolly good fun!
Students have displayed remarkable research skills, analysing online survey results and providing good qualitative and quantitative data, to add depth and credibility to their projects.
Here's a snapshot of one of our groups working hard to complete another section of their coursework, all with a confident yet adaptable air of ambitious zeal;
Picture 1: students perform an awareness-raising session with Year 7 to remind them of the problem of global food waste - (and simultaneously give a polite reminder to not waste any of their school lunches!)
Picture 2: some Year 11 students working on entering their data into the main body of their coursework pieces.
Well done to all our teams for all their hard work in this most unusual year of learning for our new Year 11s. Times may change - but standards remain!
