Year 11 weekly blog – week beginning 5th December

Hello and welcome to week two of the Year 11 blog.

This week saw the completion of the first round of Pre-Public Examinations for year 11 and they seemed to run smoothly allowing us to iron out any hiccups along the way. Just as a reminder, if there are any medical appointments that are to take place during the week of PPEs please try to let us know beforehand so we are best prepared.

Up next week:

It is back to normal for year 11 next week, a dose of routine before we look towards revision over the Christmas break. Assembly on Monday morning will be used to discuss the success of the week prior and how results will be distributed at the end of term.

Hello, and welcome to the new Year 11 weekly blog!

This is going to be a means of communicating key events and information for the week ahead and ensuring Year 11 students and parents are aware of what’s happening in the Academy.

Up this week:

Foundation PPEs – The first round of Year 11 Pre-Public Examinations are upon us – the timetable for these can be found here. This is the perfect time to take a snapshot of where we are, celebrate successes and locate any areas of improvement. The results from these PPEs will be available from the 15th December.  During this week Year 11 will swap lunch times with Year 10 to allow for afternoon exams.

Links:

Attached to the blog will be a number of useful links to support both students and parents. This week we have a ‘Do and Don’t’ sheet for parents. There are various useful tips for parents to help manage what can be a stressful time. This is by no means a finite list but is there to support if necessary – it can be found by clicking here

Also attached to this week’s blog is a link to the PowerPoint presentation (click here) regarding the ‘Get Revising’ website and app. This is a really powerful tool that will help to organise what can seem a gargantuan undertaking; the GCSE exams.

County cup results – football

This week has seen three of our football teams take part in the Bucks county cup round two.

Year 8 travelled to Walton High, a brilliant team display saw them come home with a 5-0 win to their name. A superb individual performance from Hayden Day saw him take the man of the match award. Goals from Brandon Lowe, Mason Couling, Tom Wise and a brace from Dominic Antoine.

Year 7 travelled to the Grange and came back with an impressive 4-3 victory. A real team performance was given.  Goals from Colin Mbugua, Oliver Lynch a brace from Ben Allard x 2.

Our final game saw our U18 team have their winning run halted but still remain unbeaten. Showing tremendous character the boys battled for the entire match and came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2. A bullet header from man of the match Rory Busby gave the team hope and a last gasp goal from Caleb Adegbola brought the game level.

Character Counts!

School is all about academic learning like that you find in English, Maths, Art and Science but it is also about developing well-mannered individuals that grow up with proper respect for other people. At Hazeley we foster the development of ethical issues and teach our students how to be responsible human beings by looking at the good values we would expect in society and the world around us. Sometimes this means giving students the necessary tools and skills to be honest, resilient and make a positive contribution to our community.

 

In the Character Faculty we have developed a new KS3 programme where students have the opportunity to explore opportunities for developing good character. The Character sessions support students by developing diligence and a sense of responsibility. What our students learn from character education will be useful to them as they engage and interact with other people and become upstanding members of their communities. Students need to know the how to treat other people, and this sometimes means understanding how different we all are and how we make different choices based on what we like or feel.

In today’s session, year 7 reflected on their own impact on society with a “What if I am…” idea. Students thought about what animal, colour, food, country etc. they would be.

“Today we were writing about ‘What if I was a…’ If I was a food, I would be Sushi because it is delicious and healthy at the same time. It was fun talking about this, and it’s a shame we have only one Character class every fortnight.”

Isabelle Moon

“Today we were writing and drawing about the things we like. My favourite colour is blue because it’s the colour of the sky and the sea.”

Marco Magnone

“I chose to be Los Angeles because it’s a very famous place. It’s hot and beautiful. People around the world come and visit it, there’s a lot of beaches, celebrities and amazing long buildings. I also chose to be a statue because statues are important e.g. the Statue of Liberty. Also, people would stare at you.”

Rian Mistry

“I chose New York if I could be a city because I like the Empire State Building and Central Park. Also, I would like to see Liberty Island and the Statue of Liberty. It looks like a fabulous place.”
