Curriculum Day – Autumn Term 2015

Year 10 Hasland Hall students had a ‘curious’ day on 24 September when they spent the morning getting to grips with the new way they’ll be tested on GCSE Literature texts – before enjoying an afternoon experiencing their set play in the way it should be seen: at the theatre. Sheffield Lyceum’s staging of the National Theatre production of Simon Stephens’ engaging adaptation of Mark Haddon’s amazing novel “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” proved an excellent way to mark the first Curriculum Day of the school year. Year 10’s English teachers reported that the show was very good, with Teaching and Learning Assistant Mr Rowbotham commenting on “how well it brought the script to life”. Assistant Head-teacher Mr Davey’s English group thought it was “orate” (alright) – high praise indeed – but several of them  have been so inspired that they’ve signed up for next month’s trip to see The Crucible in Manchester.

Year 8, meanwhile, visited the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, while 150 Year 7 students walked the Five Pits Trail with their tutors to cement team-building. Far from being “the pits”, the trail proved very popular – albeit challenging: “I enjoyed listening to my friends’ stories on the way – although my legs were very achy towards the end!” said Logan and Sarah. Sophie, from 7LF, added: “I enjoyed the team challenge in the park because I could compete against my friends in other groups.”

In school, Year 9 spent half the day on an extended learning project in Design, developing lettering skills ahead of GCSE Technology choices, with the other time engaged in Maths Trail problem-solving. Year 11 had a hard-hitting but beneficial three-hour series of workshops and presentations about sexual exploitation, followed by some essential Careers Guidance.
