Years 9/10 Trip to the RSC in Stratford
In preparation for the pupils’ GCSE English Literature examination; Year 9 and Year 10 were treated to a spell binding performance of Macbeth. Christopher Eccleston’s performance as Macbeth was captivating as the audience shared in his demise from a highly regarded patriotic subject to murderer and tyrant.
Niamh Cussack was brilliant in her portrayal of the manipulative and calculating Lady Macbeth. All the pupils agreed what a gripping and exciting performance it was. – Mrs Stephens – English Curriculum Lead.
On Tuesday the 3rd of July, years 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 had a visit from Wonderstruck who explained all about rockets and explosions – in the playground then we didn’t set all the fire alarms off inside! Then students spent the morning building their own rockets in groups before firing them across the field.
In the afternoon the students built fan powered cars and adapted them to make them go as fast as possible. After various heats in the classrooms, the best 8 cars competed in the hall. Congratulations to George Allen, Callum Inglis and Austin Barnacle who made the fastest car. All students really engaged with the day, worked well with a mix of peers from different year groups and – hopefully – now have a better understanding of the opportunities and excitements that Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths can offer.
BBC2’s 500 Words
On Friday 8th June, Mrs Melville went along to the final of the BBC2 500 words competition broadcast as part of the Chris Evans Breakfast Show. Over the past 2 years Mrs Melville has been helping to judge the competition and this year was one of those invited along to the presentations.
This meant Mrs Melville had to be at Hampton Court Palace at 5:30am on Friday morning to have ID and handbags checked before being allowed in. Once in, the show went ahead, with music from John Newman, Bastille and Alexandra Burke and presentations and readings from a host of celebrities including David Walliams and the Duchess of Cornwall. Chris Evans was absolutely brilliant and a real champion of the stories and the value of children reading and writing. Maybe next year someone from Exhall could write a story that impresses the judges and gets them an invite to get up very, very early one Friday!
