The Year 8 Eco group
The Year 8 Eco group gave up their time today to help clean up the community. Pupils really worked hard trying to make our walk ways more attractive and safe for the entire community. Pupils worked with staff from Asda in Maesteg and collected over 20 black bags of waste from the area giving it a real transformation.
Key Stage 3 & 4 Mock Exam Time Table March 2015
On Thursday 5th February, a group of five Year 9 pupils, chosen to be language ambassadors, went on a training course in Cardiff City Centre. We spent the day taking part in language workshops and planning activities that we are hoping to carry out throughout the year.
It was a really enjoyable day and we have lots of fun ideas about how to get everyone involved in learning languages. We are now really excited about the opportunities languages can bring and we can’t wait to get started on our plans!
'Spooky Spell’ Contest
On January 6th, 30 Year 7 students took part in a ‘Spooky Spell’ Contest. Pupils attempted to spell 70 words, competing to win the title of spookiest speller of them all!
Dr Jones and Mrs Manson, organising, were extremely impressed by the conduct of the pupils and by the standard of the entries. Spelling is an important aspect of the English Curriculum at Key Stage 3, and students were tested on some very challenging words like ‘cemetery’, ‘unfathomable’ and ‘arachnid’.
Well done to everyone who took part. Thank you for coming along in your free time and for showing your commitment to learning in English.
Special congratulations are extended to seven students who achieved a perfect score of 70: Lydia Evans (7C1); Abbie Grant (7P2); Ellie Sykes (7C1); Cameron Coombs (7H1); Matthew Piers Villis (7H1); Bronwen Lloyd (7H1) and Saffron Mia Hall (7H1). Shana-Marie Jones (7C1); William Roberts (7C1); Holly Lloyd (7P2) and Sheree Evans (7P2) were all close runners up with a mark of 69.
Now that students have done the tricky part, names will be entered into a hat to win a treat. Good luck to all!
Dr Jones and Mrs Manson
