During term 3, students took part in a number of exciting enrichment options such as a series of Art Workshops led by visiting artist Laura Thomas. Students completed the following sessions: recycled paper making, marbling paper, monoprinting using block printing inks and acrylic sheets and gelli-plate printing. In the final week, students collated all their work into a notebook.

In addition, students took part in new sessions such as Practical Philosophy in the Sixth Form and Film Studies in Year 9. The breadth of options offered to students has recently been commended by Sharon Waterman a former Headteacher and now Consultant, Coach and Trustee. Sharon visited MGGS before the half term and carried out a range of observations and interviews with students. Below are some of the comments made by students during the review: ‘Enrichment lessons help us all to thrive’ (student in Year 8). 

‘Enrichment has opened my eyes to new subjects and led me to pursue film in more depth when I start my undergraduate study’ ( student in Year 13). 

‘My Politics unit in Year 7 has made me feel confident to have conversations at home about political parties’ (student in Year 8).

Students in the Sixth Form took part in their termly A Level Mindset sessions that focused on systems. During these sessions the students evaluated their own working practices and explored a number of different evidence-based ways of categorising how we learn, and how to deploy these methods.

Term 3 was a busy time for Google, with new staff receiving their induction training and othersattending additional training for using Google Sites. This term also saw the launch of a new weekly ‘Google Drop-In Session’ for staff, where they can seek advice about using Google tools in new ways to enhance their teaching practice.
