Since Christmas, Group 7 have been working hard on a range of new topics in both English and maths. They have been developing their analysis of a range of poems from the ‘power and conflict’ cluster and tackling fractions in advance of their upcoming functional skills exams.

Diving head first into poems from William Blake and Shelley Percy has shown staff that the group are not ‘ad-verse’ to hard work.

Excitement filled the classroom when the group found out that KFC would be helping them to complete work using fractions. However, the class detected ‘fowl’ play when they found out that KFC stands for Keep Flip and Change (a method used when dividing)!

The group also welcomed Mark to KS4. Mark will be supporting the group and helping them prepare for their GCSEs.
