16th November 2018
The past two weeks have been particularly busy for our Year 11s as they sat their second set of mock exams. These trial exams are giving our students a good sense of what the real GCSE exams will be like, and will display the academic but also perseverance skills each individual student has. Every student has been checking the seating plan for their exams, revising very well and trying their best in each exam they sit. Now the exams have finished, each student is relaxing and joyfully celebrating their successes with each other. They will be receiving their grades back from these exams on the 3rd of December in an envelope, to give the students the most realistic experience of the GCSE exams they will be sitting this coming May. Congratulations to all of the Year 11s for completing your second set of trial exams!
On the 9th of November, the school had a remembrance assembly. The ceremony started with the flag being carried around the room to welcome our guests. We then held a minute’s silence to remember all of those we lost in the war. Following this, we heard some saddening, yet inspiring stories from our guests from the Royal British Legion and then they went to lay a poppy wreath at the memorial next to the library.
On the 16th of November, the school held a non-uniform day to raise funds for Children in Need. Students were encouraged to come into school wearing something spotty or striped to follow the theme of Children in Need’s mascot Pudsey Bear. To participate in the non-uniform day, the students contributed £1 towards the total fund raiser for Children in Need. Additionally, Mrs Lowden has been selling Pudsey Bear Badges around the school to contribute to the fundraising, and some students have also set up a competition for other students to guess some teacher’s baby photos!
Anyway, after a hectic week at Middlewich High, it’s time for the weekend to sit down and prepare for the upcoming week.
