Mr Wright's Class
This term in English our topic has been 'All About Me', which has comprised of our pupils thinking about what inspires, motivates and drives them to be the very best possible version of themselves. To start with, our class decided to look at people who we look up to, are successful in their chosen field and are people that, one day, we might like to emulate. Needless to say, Mr Wright and Miss Light had not heard of all of the wondrous people that our class chose so were keen to learn more. We now know all there is to know about Vannoss Gaming, Zach King, Eden Hazard and Chef Gordon Ramsay.
Pupils were given the task to research one person and present their findings using visual aids to the rest of the class, before receiving constructive and critical feedback before performing a final presentation to showcase what they had learnt. My goodness, we had some strong performances and personalities that made the most trivial facts seem amazing and magnificent.
After looking at other people and writing a biography of their life and accomplishments we decided to look inwards and begin writing autobiographies. We are currently working on our first draft of these in class and will be publishing these through a variety of mediums, so stay tuned to our class page to see exactly what we've been up to!
In Maths this term we have been focusing primarily on number, data and statistics and have worked incredibly hard on a number of tasks, including:
- conducting surveys
- collecting data
- analysing data
- interpreting data
- representing the same piece of data in a myriad of ways
- keeping to a budget
- number skills
We were even lucky enough to turn our KS3 classrooms into one stop coffee and cake shops respectively and raised the stupendous sum of £167.55 in less than an hour! Now if that isn't something to be proud of, then I'm not sure what is. We regularly update the school Twitter account with fun snapshots of our learning in Maths and Numeracy lessons, so take a look to see what we've been up to and don't forget to follow to find out exactly how fantastic we are on a daily basis.
