DNA Performances, Athletics Squads and Science Homework

Dear Parent/Carer


DNA PERFORMANCES


Students from across the year groups are performing DNA, a tense drama by Dennis Kelly from Wednesday 11 to Friday 13 July 2018 starting at 6.30 pm in the hall. I hope that you will have the opportunity to support one of these live performances. Tickets are available from the Drama Studio at a cost of £5.00 for adults, £3.00 for concessions and students and £2.00 for Drama GCSE students. Please note there will be no ticket sales on the door, only advanced.


Our new Year 7s will view an adapted matinee performance of this current production during transition week, which will give them the opportunity to see the kind of things they can become involved in next year.

 

ATHLETIC SQUADS


Congratulations to the athletics squads for their efforts at the track and field event held at Woodbourn Road Stadium last Thursday. Our Year 7 and 9 boys and Year 8 and 9 girls all qualified for the finals to be held at the end of this month.

 

FORMAT OF SCIENCE HOMEWORK - EDUCAKE - ONLINE FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT FOR HOMEWORK AND CLASSWORK


Please encourage your child to complete their Science homework and/or revision tasks on www.educake.co.uk


Educake is an online formative assessment for homework and revision. It is a system which allows homework to be quickly and easily set and automatically marked for both Key Stage 3 and GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Educake works with iPads, iPhones and Android, Blackberry, Macs and PCs.


Your child has been given their password by their Science class teacher. All Year 7 and 8 homework will be set through Educake and Year 9, 10 and 11 students will receive a mixture of Educake tasks and past GCSE exam questions. It is important students complete these tasks in preparation for any end of year assessments.

 


Yours faithfully
Simon Winslow - Headteacher
