Year 10 Learning News Autumn Term 2017

Throughout this term, Year 10 have been working hard to not only improve their skills, but also to learn how to work together as a team.

Our trip to Wymondley Woods was a great success, allowing us to all get to know each other better, helping us to build that team spirit and have a lot of fun along the way. New friendships were made and new experiences had, for staff as well as students!

As we progressed through the term, another area of our learning that has improved due to our ability to work as a team, is our work in Enterprise. We found that by helping each other and passing on skills that we as individuals have, we are able to help others improve in their learning. We also learned that an essential skill in life and business is to be able to listen and communicate with each other. In doing this, we were able to find out what our ‘clients’ wanted, conducting our own market research in school, and then providing what was asked for.

This helped us develop the Enterprise Tuck Shop into a bacon roll and hot dog stall on a Thursday! We worked hard at developing new skills that enabled us to make small items that we could sell, building up enough stock so that we could open our stall at the Indoor Market in Stevenage. This happened a few weeks ago with Callum and M……being lucky enough to meet our local MP Stephen McPartland there. They introduced him to our stall and he was very impressed, and as a result, Mr. McPartland is going to come into school in the New Year and help us promote all our hard work. So all in all, a promising start for Team 10!
