Year 8 Lead Learners Project

The Year 8 Lead Learners project gives our pupils the opportunity to work with students from local primary schools to  help them develop their learning. During the autumn term, the first sessions took place at Olive Hill and Newfield Park primary schools for the afternoon. In order to prepare for this, our students  had additional Maths or English lessons in a smaller groups so they refined their skills to support the primary students effectively. The maths cohort went to Newfield Park for the afternoon and focused on collaborative work through a booklet; the students  then went on to create their own questions to resolve. During the English session at Olive Hill, pupils were paired with a primary student to complete a descriptive writing task.
