Y Pant English Department are running a ‘Breakfast Revision Club’ from 7:50 on Friday 22nd May, Tuesday 2nd June and Tuesday 9th June. This will take place in room 68 where breakfast will be served (complementary) and last minute exam tips/techniques will be delivered.
Our aim is for the pupils to enter their exam at 8:30, with the brain energy and confidence needed to complete their English Literature and Language examinations.
Please encourage your child to take advantage of this opportunity.
“Breakfast before an exam is EXTREMELY important, as your brain needs energy to work at optimal capacity”
“Make the most of the final few hours before your exam”
We wish all year 11 pupils the very best of luck of their examinations and look forward to seeing them at the revision sessions.
Those of you in Year 10 or above will be familiar with these lines from the opening of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. You may vividly remember the lessons you spent acting, reading and analysing important scenes. You might even be heard to say that some of Shakespeare’s magnificent dialogue can sometimes be tricky to interpret on first reading, let alone deliver it to an audience. Would you agree then, that it would be a mighty task to memorise a speech and deliver it to a panel of judges who are looking for a realistic portrayal of a Shakespearean character?
Well, Lydia Morgan in Year 8 has done exactly that! She made it to the South Wales Regional Final of the English Speaking Union ‘Shakespeare Performance’ competition held in the Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. The judges were very impressed with Lydia’s performance of Julia’s speech from Two Gentlemen of Verona in the first round and gave her a place in the Regional Final last week. The competition involved Year 8 and 9 students from school s across Wales and the judges were looking for the best performance of Shakespeare’s work. There were 10 competitors in total and Lydia’s performance went well! To perform in front of an audience is always challenging but Lydia rose to the challenge and impressed judges and audience members alike. Well done Lydia!
Many congratulations to Andrew Suen in Year 7, who has come in to school today with a very impressive trophy! He has won the Year 7 category in the South Glamorgan Festival for Young Musicians. Well done, Andrew!
Congratulations to year 10 students Jared Upright, Lewis Roberts, Lloyd Evans, Shaun Grainger and Brandon Webb who last week won the South Wales Stock Market Challenge at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Working in teams, their task was to manage a fund of shares and foreign currency by interpreting information and investing in the markets. The team with the highest total fund at the closing bell of the competition were the winners.
