Miss Clappison took sixteen of our Year 11 French students to a listening masterclass on Monday at St John Rigby College. It proved to be an extremely worthwhile experience, which offered students a wide variety of tips and techniques to aid them in their revision for their forthcoming GCSE French exams.

Miss Moran is teaching her Year 8 class about forces and had an interesting way to get the pupils to understand by involving them in a game of tug of war to help them learn about balanced and unbalanced forces. The girls beat the boys! All pupils put a lot of effort into the game and managed to answer all of the questions. The same class were asked to create a leaflet/poster to share their research about space. As you can see from the photos, some pupils went above and beyond, creating fantastic models. Brilliant work Year 8; well done!

Miss Gallagher told me she had totalled the achievement points from Year 7 for term 1B and the results were as follows: in 3rd place were Declan O’Shaughnessy, Gemma Unsworth, Paige Headteachers BlogWalsh, Elizabeth Davies, Ella Halsall and Thomas Pinder, in 2nd place were Mary-Jane McLaughlin and Katie Murray and in 1st place were Alistair Rothwell and Lily Webster.  Special mentions to Holly Walker 7M, Abbie Bailey 7A, Leah Else 7G, Aleyah Stockley 7H and Katie Davies 7M who all achieved the bronze library award.  Caitlin Morgan, Benjamin Purcell, Lucy Bolton, Amelia Barrett, Ethan Dickinson, Mary Jane McLaughlin, Isabel Olurankinse all produced fantastic entries for the Year of Mercy card designs.  Kieran Parker (7B), Katie Quinn (7B) and Matthew Woolley (7B) have all made outstanding progress in geography.  Matthew Woolley, 7B gained the bronze numeracy award and Mary-Jane McLoughlin, 7W gained the first-ever silver numeracy award.  Finally, congratulations to Olivia Forshaw in 7L who won two cinema tickets by phoning up WISH FM on Friday morning. Olivia appeared on the radio, correctly answering a question about song lyrics.  Fantastic work Year 7, well done, keep it up!
