After a very restful Easter holiday we have some fantastic examples of pupils’ work I would like to share with you this week.
Miss Harley told me that Year 7 have amassed an amazing 675 Achievement Points (with 7G scoring 158 of them!) - brilliant work Year 7, keep it up.
Mr Reardon told me that Year 8 have also made a great start to the summer term. We were visited this week by the TenTen theatre group who looked at the topic of bullying. Students got involved with the production and it was great to hear the interesting discussion that took place during the session. Overall, this week, Year 8 students amassed over 400 achievement points. Forms B and O have made a particularly impressive start to the term, managing to record no behaviour points whatsoever. A fantastic achievement by the students in those forms.
Robyn Lind in Year 9 produced these outstanding pieces of work in technology; they wouldn’t be out of place for sale in a national retailer!
Mrs Kennedy told me that she set her Year 11 French class a week of challenges over the holidays. They were emailed three crossword-type clues each day and had to find the correct word or phrase from a list of Higher Level vocabulary they had been asked to focus on over the Easter Break. The first to respond with all answers correct won the day’s prize. Jemima Naylor (11M2) won EVERY challenge! Fantastic work Jemima; congratulations!
Mrs Evans told me she was so proud of the pupils who entered the Mathematical Education on Merseyside Challenge and Senior Challenge competitions. Hundreds of pupils across the north-west took part and in KS4, Matthew Eaves (third prize across the whole region and best in school), Kiera Featherstone (consolation prize), Yasmin Costello (certificate of merit) and Olivia Harrald (certificate of merit) shone. At KS3, Rachel Castle (consolation prize and best in school), Kira Forber (certificate of merit) and Matthew Duffy (certificate of merit) all
won prizes and have been invited to attend a presentation evening at Liverpool University in May. We clearly have budding mathematicians in our school and we are all very proud of your achievements!
Mrs Crompton told me that her 8Y2 class have performed really well on their physics unit 2 test. They have shown consistent effort in all their lessons and this has shown in the superb levels they have achieved. Congratulations to Molly Rigby, Ethan Piper, Ben Lewis, Lucy Robertson, Molly Bibby, Fleur Sandbach, Alison Travis, Matthew Williamson and Christian Rimmer. Well done and keep up the fantastic work.
Mr Killen sent me the attached picture of Isabel Sibbit's interpretation of Amadeo Modigliani fused with Dragon Riders of Berk What fantastic work Isabel, well done!
