Foundation Week


Foundation Week takes place 23-27 January 2017. The week is designed around boosting the GCSE work for year 11 students in their option subjects. Each of the 4 option columns are given one day each over the week. The year 7 to year 10 students will still experience their normal lessons but the timetable for the week has changed and they may have more or less of some of the subjects they would have normally.

On Wednesday of Foundation Week we are very lucky to have been selected to have Google Classroom in school to deliver to Y7 to 10 classes. Google Expeditions enable teachers to bring students on virtual trips to places like museums, underwater, and outer space. The expeditions are collections of linked virtual reality (VR) content and supporting materials that are delivered alongside the existing curriculum. The expeditions are virtual reality apps built especially for classrooms. Each Expedition is comprised of descriptions and points of interests for the teacher and students. Using  tablet computers, teachers will guide their students using virtual reality headset viewers.
