Entry Points for the final IMYC units of this year

On Tuesday the students in Years 7, 8 and 9 went to Montreux for the Entry Points for the final IMYC units of this year. The students were required to complete a quiz and a photo challenge, as well as a task specifically related to their Big Idea.   
 
The Big Idea for Year 9 is based on Leadership. The students were putting their own leadership skills to the test. They had to make their own way to and from Montreux using public transport, accompanied by two 'passive' teachers who shadowed them for security reasons and also to observe and feed back on their leadership skills. In Montreux, their main task was to examine why and how Montreux maintains its position as a leading tourist centre. 
 
Year 8 were at looking at Communication - 'when information is shared accurately and clearly, the end result is more effective.' Their main task was to produce a group presentation on Communication in Action, based on their observations over the course of the day. They will be presenting this in a future assembly, communicating to their peers and teachers. 
 
Collaboration was the main theme for Year 7 - 'When people work together, they can achieve a common goal'. Collaboration in Action was the central idea of their main task and a future presentation at a Junior Assembly. They were also required to organise themselves and collaborate effectively in order to complete their tasks successfully.
 
The students and the accompanying teachers had a very enjoyable day, learning a lot about themselves, their peers and, of course,  Montreux!

Ski Expedition Weekend

This weekend the students will be participating in the long ski expedition weekend. They will leave on Friday afternoon after lunch and return on Sunday at the end of the day. The adventure is reserved for the older students in Years 7,8 & 9 and I am sure they will thoroughly enjoy themselves. It has been a busy term for all the students and staff and this weekend should be a lot of fun. Next week, the students will have their ski competition on Tuesday as well!

Studying Patterns and Animals

This term in Reception we have been studying Patterns and Animals. We have identified patterns in our environment and located these on a map of the school. We have created our own patterns using a variety of objects and artistic techniques. After reading the story of Elmer, the multi-coloured patterned elephant, we worked together to make our own Elmer using lots of patterned materials. We thought about the fact that Elmer was different to the other elephants because he was colourful. We though about our own differences and how these make us special. 
 
We have also been finding our about animals, identifying our favourite animals and finding out lots of interesting facts about them. We have looked at the patterns on their scales, feathers, skin and fur and thought about why these might be there. Finally we have worked together to build an incredible Zoo Role Play Area in the classroom where we can read and look after and sort the animals. We have been very busy!
