Last Red Day of the Academic Year – another huge success

Monday February 6th saw another hugely successful Red Day filled with activities for Key Stage 3, Family Consultation Day for year 10 and 11 as well as post 16 taster sessions as part of our Tudor Park 6th Form offer.

Year 7 were involved in a day of Creative Olympics with year 7 rotating around a number of carousels from line dancing to cake making and decorating,drama and dance workshops to designing and making life size board games.  Students focussed all their efforts around the areas of collaboration to enhance their work as part of a team.  Year 7 showcased their work in a final assembly.  This was a great success.

Year 8 were involved in a STEM project.  They learned about bridge construction and used their mathematical knowledge to calculate optimum lengths and best designs.  Students worked in groups and presented their designs in a final assembly at the end of the day.

Year 9 were involved in tasks around International Espionage.  Students focussed their times around intercepting messages and breaking down unfamiliar language by listening to spies communicating over the phone as well as learning how to make various kinds of escape apparatus in Science.

Year 10 were involved in Family Consultation Day, this provided another valuable opportunity for parents to speak face to face with teaching staff to discuss the latest round of data and read the latest academic report.

Year 11 all had individual interviews with a senior member of staff to discuss their mock results, their revision plans and Sixth Form applications.  There were excellent sessions in the morning for students aspiring to go to a Russell Group University.  Thanks to ex students, Directors and friends of Springwest for talking to students about their experiences.  All of Year 11 successfully undertook their English Oral at some point during the day.
