This week we have started our programme proper, with reading and maths groups. Students have found that challenging but have approached it with a pretty good attidute. I am amazed that they are so mature and have such a great understanding of what is expected at Intermediate. This is a real credit to the primary schools they have come from.
This term we are looking at citizenship and to start with we have been thinking about perspective, the way we look at things. Students took photographs where they used distance to change the view of the picture (see previous posts). Next week we will be looking in more detail at how our experiences affect our perspective.
I am thrilled to be working with such a wonderful collection of intelligent, motivated students and I think we will have a wonderful year.
