Year 10 will be working in their option subjects for all of their Shine Days this year. This will give them the opportunity to prepare for Year 11 and deepen their understanding of the subjects they have chosen for Key Stage 4. For example all of the Geographers will be visiting Cambridge to collect data for their Controlled Assessment task, and Young Enterprise will be coming in to work with Business Studies students at both campuses on an ‘Enterprise in Action’ project.
On 27th and 28th June, students in Years 7-9 will be working on a variety of projects with the theme ‘Around the World’. In addition, Festive Road will be working with a group of students to create large sculptures and choreograph a performance for a walking float in the ‘Walking with Giants’ parade in Milton Keynes in July. PE will be holding a festival of sport that will also involve students from our local primary schools. MFL (Modern Foreign Languages) will be holding their annual ‘European Experience’ which as always involves a day trip to France.
On 15th July, most of our Key Stage 3 students will be going off site to a variety of destinations. Each of the planned trips gives students the opportunity to develop their subject knowledge or skills. Year 7 will be sharpening their problem solving skills at Spy Missions, seeing History come to life at Warwick Castle or gaining a greater appreciation of the natural world at the Natural History Museum. Fun and fitness is the theme of Year 8 activities, including water sports at Caldecotte Lake. Year 9 will have a scientific focus to the day with a choice of the Natural History Museum or Whipsnade Zoo. All information regarding trips has now been sent and students will be receiving payment details and consent forms. There will be a range of activities for those students opting to remain on site, with a focus on problem solving and team work.
On the final Shine Day on 18th July, Years 7 and 8 will take part in an inter form competition; each form will split into specialist teams such as sport, science and technology and the arts, and complete a series of challenges. Year 9 will be taking part in the 'Sell for Success' programme run by Young Enterprise, which involves developing and marketing a new product.
Young Enterprise are looking for volunteers to train to become business advisers to help with the work they do in schools. If you feel that you are able to contribute to this programme and help develop the skills relevant to the work place, please click on the link below for further information.
