China

 

The second Year 5 Open Morning on Tuesday 7th July was enriched by a group of seven Chinese headteachers and senior leaders

 

During their time at LCHS they were welcomed by our own Chinese teachers, Chen Qiumei, Chen Minghua and Tong Xuemei.

 

While mathematician Gao Jianxiong from HTFLS, the LCHS partner school, spoke with members of our own maths department, the others toured the school before attending the presentations by the cast of Matilda and Mr.Mckeown's talk and Q&A session. They were very interested in the whole style of the Open Morning and the way in which so many LCHS staff and pupils were involved in the visit. The house system (Hogwarts!),  small class sizes, the variety in the canteen and the great attention to the needs of the individual pupils were all mentioned very positively.

 

Earlier in the day they had been to the assembly at Westgate Junior Academy, and after LCHS went to Bishop Grosseteste University and met the Mayor at the Guildhall, the latest in a succession of similar greetings since the Lincoln-Tangshan civic partnership agreement was signed in 1992. The first evening meal was a gentle one for tired travellers from Asia at 'The Taste'. The rest of the week has been full of individual school visits, lesson observations, meetings with pupils and staff, a little tourism and shopping, and of course English food. Before returning to China the group will visit Oxford and London

 

This July 2015 visit was organised and partly funded through the British Council's 'Connecting Classrooms' programme. A group of British headteachers and teachers from the Lincolnshire partner schools will be returning to Tangshan for a week in late October. The schools involved in addition to LCHS are Bishop King Primary, Bracebridge Infants and Nursery, Coningsby St.Michael's, Marton Primary, Monks Abbey Primary,  Saxilby Primary, St Faith and St Martin, Queen Elizabeth's in Gainsborough, Westgate Junior Academy. William Farr in Welton has also provided some valuable support.

The LCHS Assistant Archivist, Peter Harrod, has had one of his articles published in the June edition of The Lincolnshire Poacher, the quarterly magazine supplement of Lincolnshire Life. This article, based on Occasional Paper 39 from the Garton Archive, focuses in particular on William Harrison Crowder, the eldest of the two sons of Ann and William Ashley Crowder.

Many local people may also have seen the poignant and moving film, ‘Tell Them of Us’, shown at Stanhope Hall in Horncastle, The Collection in Lincoln and elsewhere in the county. The film is set during the Great War, and tells the story of the Crowder family during the Great War.

William Crowder was a pupil at Lincoln Grammar School, and the Garton Archive at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School contains a number of records which provide an insight into his career at the School, brought to life in the article.

Visit the LCHS History section to read more about the school's rich heritage.

The Geography department is celebrating the success of their Year 9 Options Group in the Schools’ Challenge at the Lincolnshire show. The students researched what would grow well in a school garden in Lincolnshire and then compared this with school gardens in India and China. Their display included models of these gardens and work sent from Khaitan Public School in Delhi. Over 70 students from LCHS took part in preparing for the challenge and the presenting team of 9 students explained what they had learned to judges on Thursday at the show. Their understanding of the topic and excellent presentation gained them Second Place in the Secondary Schools category.

On Thursday, 25th June five of our Year 9 students took part in the final of the Slam Poetry Competition at Lincoln Drill Hall.

Charlotte Leake, Freya Hopkins, Eleanor Rawson, Megan Huntley and Elise Morrigan were all highly praised for the creativity of their poetry and excellent performances.

The LCHS finalists competed against 21 competitors from ten schools in the region.

Elise Morrigan certainly impressed the judges with her mature performance, winning the KS3 trophy and taking the overall award for all key stages. Congratulations Elise!
