Hagley Road Village Visit

11/4/19

Report by Miss Field

On Thursday Miss Kang and I took some year 7 and 9 students to the Hagley Retirement Village to read extracts of their work to residents in the main lounge area. Students showcased a range of work including diary entries from Norman infantrymen and WW1 soldiers, fractured fairy-tales, poetry and some of their recent competition entries. It finished with a very personal speech from Rafael Plesca who spoke about the reading help given to him by one of the residents when he was in Year 7. This combined with the support he received in school has enabled him to be in a position to offer literacy mentoring to a Year 7 student. After the readings, students enjoyed talking to some of the residents before having a tour of the village.

STEM Club

10/4/19

Report by Miss Sidhu

Just wanted to share a couple of the things pupils have been doing in STEM club . This includes a challenge to use a piece of foil to create an object that floats and holds the most mass (weight with gravity!). They also had to create something to protect an egg being dropped from the second floor of the building. Congratulations to Karam Dhillon for winning the foil challenge, and both Karam Dhillon and Talvir Kang for coming joint first in the egg challenge.

The Great Debate 2019

10/4/19

Report by Miss Sandhu

On Wednesday 10th April, 4 debaters and 1 Media Officer travelled to the Town Hall in Birmingham to argue the topic- should dogs be used for hunting. Talvir Kang, Ahmad Bin- Bilal, Ahmed Osman and Shahriar Karimaghai’s arguments were mature, structured and very persuasive. Standing in front of a number of other schools and judges, the year 7 students showed no evidence of nerves, even stating it was “fun presenting to strangers”. Esher Garcha was our Media Officer who worked with a team of RSPCA staff, writing live tweets on their website, outlining our fabulous points for the whole world to see. After only a few weeks of rehearsals and up against Y8 students, we came 3rd to King Edward VI Five Ways School and Harborne Academy School. The boys left feeling triumphant and upbeat, declaring that next year will be our victory.

The Growth Of Our Literacy Community

31/3/19

Report by Miss Kang

Another amazing week! Following the assembly on Thursday about the writing competition, a number of boys have approached me enthusiastically discussing their ideas about their writing piece, 'A chance to change the world.' It is great to hear the boys engaged with extended writing.

On Wednesday, we had a number of external guests in school, from a variety of different professions and with confidence our boys shared their literacy journey with them. It is touching to hear the message that Rafael shared about how going from a mentee had changed his life and had empowered him to now change the literacy chances of other boys. Mr Williams welcomed the support of the community on our literacy journey. They were so impressed with everything they saw around school that they asked if they could bring other volunteers too, to support us.

Literacy Assembly

24/3/19

Report by Miss Kang

On Thursday 21/3/18, we had our former student, Daniel Sidwell, who is completing his final year at the University of Oxford, come into school to deliver our Literacy assembly. Listening to him talk about when he was sat in assembly and what he would have liked to have heard was received by the boys with focus and undivided attention. Daniel's journey struck home with the boys when he spoke about how it does not matter what your background and that all opportunities are available to you should you take them.

Writing Workshops @ LBS

Miss O'Shaughnessy Report

What a great way to start the weekend! On Saturday 9/3/19 we had the pleasure of taking a group of our young men to Twickenham. They had an amazing opportunity to play on the pitch and then enjoy the England v Italy game. For many of them it was their first experience of a live game, never mind playing on the pitch. Some of them now have the enviable honour of being able to say they have scored a try at Twickenham.

Miss Kang Library Trip

The library trip was interesting both on Thursday with Year 8 and Friday with Year 10 . A lot of boys appreciated why literacy is at the centre of everything we do and in particular it was a pleasure to see students researching and reserving books about what they wants to do in the future.
