Year 8 – GCSE Taster Day
Year 8 had lessons in PE, DT, Media and RE to help them make informed choices about their GCSE preferences. The day started with an assembly about the preferences process and finished with them back in tutor bases going through what they had learnt about the GCSE courses and thinking about what route they would like to take.
Year 7 – Media
Year 7 have been working with Sky Sports and Eagle Radio. Each tutor group spent time with representatives from both these companies. Eagle Radio delivered sessions on e-safety and the students have been analysing real life tweets and deciding whether those tweets are safe, rude, civil or even criminal.
The students were given an opportunity to become journalists for the day with help and guidance from Sky Sports. They worked in groups and utilised the ‘Five W’s’ from their English lessons to hold a mock press conference with a Sky Sports journalist. All the students got a real taste for how exciting but tiring the world of work is!
