As we head into the summer months, Sixth Form teachers are putting together projects for next year's Year 12s to complete over the summer holidays. We will list the projects below.
Year 10 and 11 Child Development students have enjoyed hearing about Liz and Carina’s journey to become Mummies. We have watched the journey from conception through to the arrival of baby Sadie, who visited us in class recently. Their treatment option was IVF with donor sperm at The London Women’s Clinic. This enabled motherhood to be a shared experience right from conception.
Year 12 Early Years and Health and Social care students attended an Open Day at The University of Cumbria where they discovered student life beyond 6th Form. They found out about Degree opportunities, work placements, clubs and societies. They also participated in interactive sessions relevant to their subjects, for example Midwifery, Primary Education, Childhood and Family Studies and Social work.
On a Monday lunchtime in R66 there is a Culture Club - if you would like to celebrate difference and learn about the wide range of diversity in our society this may be the club for you.
UCC had a great visit to New City College (NCC) Hackney, you can check out the full story here.
Teachers have been busy this week compiling summer projects for the students who will be leaving Year 11 this summer and returning to us in September as Sixth Formers.
Students can find these on the Curriculum page of the subjects they will be studying.
Professor Michael Preston-Shoot (Dean of the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences at the University of Bedfordshire) gave an inspirational lecture to the sixth form: “On the threshold of new dreams”. This was followed by a debate with students on a diverse range of social issues. The Sixth form questions were excellent. The Professor then visited lessons in school with a focus on philosophy & ethics and health & social care. He had a thoroughly enjoyable visit and would be happy to return. A small amount of footage was taken from the session:
