Greenfield students have been working extra hard in subject groups to get the best possible head start this term. Year 11 Students have come together for specialised sessions aimed to boost their knowledge and confidence in preparation for forthcoming exams.
The whole Maths team worked with Year 11 students from both the Aycliffe site and the Sunnydale Campus with a more intensive focus on maths, pooling resources and ideas to benefit each and every student involved. Staff planned bespoke workshops for small groups of students based on areas of improvement identified from their mock exams. Each student attended 4 workshops and the day ended with a team maths relay quiz – with prizes and everything! Mrs Claire Middleton, Director of Improvement in Maths, was thrilled with the results, “We were all extremely impressed by the level of engagement of the students and many commented that they had got a lot from the day, it was real success and great for all of the staff and students to have the opportunity to work across both campuses”
The English team also planned a dedicated event where Year 11 English students were given the opportunity to work together in the main hall going through past exam papers and generally preparing for exams. The English team enjoyed working together with the students who were able to gain tips on preparation and benefit from the shared knowledge and expertise of the English teaching team. They then had the chance to take part in a fun quiz which was a great way to finish off the day and another chance to work together and learn from each other.
The specialised sessions have given a real boost to the students giving them the chance to learn from an excellent team of staff and share good practice. Greenfield are committed to raising aspirations and finding innovative ways to help all of their students reach their potential. We wish all the students every success in their exams.
