Science Trip - Brockholes

Science Trip - Brockholes

On Wednesday 14th December 2016 the students from years 9 and 10 SLC visited Brockholes Wetland Nature reserve. Whilst there they worked in groups to complete a bug hunt, in which they searched leaf litter and trees to find various minibeasts and invertebrates and then tried to identify them. In the afternoon they were shown how to use binoculars correctly and they then used these new skills to look for and identify different birds that cohabitate in the wetlands area. The visit will link closely with the current GCSE learning that is taking place in their science lessons enabling the students to see real life examples of the science curriculum in practice.

Mayor for a Day 2016

20/10/2016

Mayor for a Day 2016

I won the Mayor for a Day competition by answering a simple question: “The legal voting age should be changed from 18 to 16 because...” with the answer: “16 and 17 year olds are just as passionate about important issues as adults can be and some of these issues can directly affect young people.” As a result, I spent a day with the Mayor. Miss Heaton and I were picked up from in the mayor's car, and we started the day at an eco-schools conference, where schools and organizations spoke about what they were doing to help the environment; we then had afternoon tea at the Mayor's parlour, after which we visited a primary school to deliver a presentation on what they needed to know about the Mayor. We were then taken back to school at the end of the day. It was a very good day and I highly recommend entering the competition next time to anyone into that sort of thing.

Wigan Schools Dance Festival - Winners

Wigan Schools Dance Festival - Winners

The students were exploring a topic called ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ which helps break down the stigma of boys showing their emotions. We created a dance piece to Clown by Emeli Sande as we thought the lyrics reflected the issues covered in the story really well. The students worked so hard to rehearse and perfect the performance dedicating lunch times and after school to make sure it was just right. The judges commented that the emotional connection the performers showed to the piece was outstanding and this was the overall factor in their success.

They beat off some really tough competition from Fred Longworth High School , Abraham Guest Academy, Standish High School, West Leigh High School and Hawkley Hall High School to gain 1st place with their performance.

In Adams Tower, they had the opportunity to dress up in chainmail, try on medieval battle costumes and to handle some of the weapons from the time period. We then explored the other parts of the castle, looking at how it had changed from an area of defence to a luxurious family home. We were also treated to Mr Floweth playing a few tunes for us on the piano. The students had a thoroughly enjoyable day.

All students that took part thoroughly enjoyed their session and many enquired when the Rose Bridge High School would start the Explorer Scout group.

Mr Callaghan said “I would highly recommend the scouts to any school/organisation. They interacted with every single student. The day was fantastic and all the students had smiles on their faces from start to finish”.

New School Rewards System

28/01/2014

New School Rewards System

What is a school reward system?

School reward systems are where students are awarded points. This might be for working really hard on a piece of work, or based on something like extra curricular involvement, attendance, grades or sticking to the school rules. Students are then often rewarded in some way based on how many points they have received from the school with something such as a voucher or a school trip.

We have recently replaced our house point system with a new electronic reward system; ePraise. This followed on from some suggestions raised at a student council meeting. ePraise is a school rewards system designed to motivate students. It works in a similar way to traditional school reward systems, except that the points are claimed and/or awarded online.

Key Features

  • Promotes Competition
  • Encourages Enthusiasm
  • Encourages Improved Attendance
  • Engages Students of all Abilities
  • Actual Rewards in the School Shop
  • School Shop including TV DVD Combo, Raspberry Pi Mini Computer, Various vouchers and more!

Although still in the early stages, ePraise has proven to be a huge hit with both staff and students! Click here to take at look at ePraise.

Wonder of Numbers

07/11/2013

Wonder of Numbers

The programme called the Wonder of Numbers restores the student's confidence and refreshes the knowledge from their primary education. Over 6000 students in over 50 Primary schools all improved their maths performance by more than 30% using the Wonder of Numbers approach over the last 3 years plus hundreds of secondary school students.

What is different when compared with normal teaching approaches?

  1. It links IQ and EQ plus memory in the learning of the language of numbers.
  2. It teaches both students, teachers and above all parents the importance of number manipulation role in the understanding of mathematics.
  3. It is fast moving and fun.
  4. The single largest factor is student's confidence in number applications.
  5. Numbers are taken out of abstract and brought to life in images using visual memory techniques.

The Wonder of Numbers supports all curriculum mathematics and by doing so lifts the performance of the students involved.

Therefore, we have today run the initial session with 90 of our key stage 3 students and the day was a resounding success!

Quarry Bank Mill

Quarry Bank Mill

45 students had a thoroughly enjoyable day at Quarry Bank Mill in Styal Cheshire. The students visited 3 areas of the historical site including the Mill, the Apprentice House and the village. In the mill the students had a tour around the different areas of the mill. They students saw the working conditions that children/workers would have endured in the early 19th century. The mill guides provided a brief experience of how loud the machines were and we discussed the impact that this would have on the workers. They all really enjoyed the visit to the Apprentice House. Here they saw how the children who worked for the Greg family, lived and experienced the school room, the sleeping quarters and the food that they received. I think the majority of the students had a greater appreciation of the lives they have today rather than those of children in the early 19th century.
