Important dates for your diaries – Upcoming Presentations of Learning

At the end of every learning expedition, students present their learning to an authentic audience.

Year 7’s first presentation of learning will be streamed live on Youtube on Monday 12th December at 5.30pm-7.00pm with families watching at home. This presentation will include extracts from the book students are writing and dramatic and musical performances. This is part of wider plan of public speaking where Year 7 students; in their next learning expedition in the new year Year 7 carry out their second presentation of learning to an audience, which we hope to be at Newcastle University.

For Year 8, their presentation of learning will be in school on Thursday 8th December at 5.30pm-6.30pm. Class 1 and Class 2 will do separate presentations with excepts from speeches and an opportunity for families to look at portfolios and quiz students on their learning following an interval.

Students stay in school on the evening of their respective presentations of learning and can bring some healthy snacks to have after 3.30pm.

These are formal occasions so we ask for students to dress smartly – our polo shirts are great for these events.

We are really looking forward to a great pair of presentations before the Christmas break, and we know your children will be excited to show you what they have learned.
