News from Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9)
News from Key Stage 3 – February 2019
Shirley Watson, Head of Key Stage 3, writes: ‘Thinking of others has been very much on the minds of Key Stage 3 forms as we launched this term’s charity appeal. Over forty girls helped launch each form’s suggested charity to the whole Key Stage in assemblies, the high quality of presentation made voting extremely close. Make a Wish Foundation, British Heart Foundation and local charity Bliss Babies won through and now forms are finalising their fundraising activities, some of which will take place at our annual Valentine and Easter lunchtime fetes.
On the academic front, a group of pupils from Years 7, 8 and 9 chose to spend a day ‘off timetable’ to carry out research as part of our Inspire programme. Joined by Warwick School Key Stage3 boys in our new Sixth Form Centre, they interpreted the theme ‘101’ very creatively.
Year 9 have been diligently choosing their GCSE options whilst Year 7 pupils were led by nationally-acclaimed theatre company Highly Sprung to interpret the story of the Snow Queen using physical theatre. This amazing ‘Play in a Day’ showed to a full house of supportive parents and friends at the Bridge House Theatre.’
