Copleston Chronicle First half of Spring Term 2013 — Issue 27
YEAR 10 NEWS Happy New Year to you all! Year 10 students have been working hard on their Controlled Assessments in a variety of subjects and this will continue through until Spring 2014. It is so important that they get into good habits now so that they feel prepared when it comes to their final exams. In recent weeks a Science GCSE has been taken by students doing the Dual Science Course. RE and History students have also taken mock exams. All Year 10 students will take their English Language GCSE this summer. One excellent way for students to revise is by completing past exam papers; these can be downloaded from the Exam Boards’ websites. French and Spanish students attended sessions by an AQA senior examiner last week , which gave them an insight in how to achieve the highest grades in their speaking and written Controlled Assessments. They will now hopefully be adding his ideas to future work. The Year 10 Council has been meeting and will be organising a Year 7 Disco in aid of Comic Relief. Their next task will be to organise a Prom Fair and Fashion Show for November; if you would be interested in running a stall on the evening (date to be confirmed) or you know anybody who would, please contact us. We will then be looking at venues to hold the Year 11 Prom. Congratulations to Courtney Burch, Shannon Read and Briony Adams who organised a Charity Gig in aid of Parkinsons, raising over £500. I was impressed with the amount of organisation that they had put in to make the event a success.
