Following on from a great first day back, E24 (Year 9) have had another excellent day!
It has been wonderful today to see such high levels of engagement, focus, co-operation and graft!
The day started with a crew session where crews were given four different challenges to solve. These included: Radioactive Isotope, The Floor is Lava!, Precious Trophy and Scientific Breakthrough.
Here we are working as crew!
The next part of our day saw us building on our careers sessions from yesterday by finding out what potential employment opportunities might be suited to us. Using a programme called ‘Start’, we discovered which careers matched our qualities, skills and interests. We also researched what salaries different jobs would pay and the availability of specific jobs throughout the country.
Ali discovered that being an author could earn her anything from £9,800 a year to over £2million a year! She’s already started writing her bestseller!
Rhys is interested in becoming a paramedic. He researched the qualifications he needs to achieve this and found out that there are over 2,000 job opportunities in this field across Yorkshire. We’d all be in safe hands with Rhys!
Throughout this session, learning and conduct behaviours from ALL students were exemplary!
The final session of today saw students introduced to ‘Passage Presentation’ which is an important piece of work students complete during Year 9 to demonstrate that they are GCSE ready. More information to follow about this…
So, tomorrow, we are heading to Sheffield Hallam University. We can’t wait!
