Last week the English Department celebrated Shakespeare Week by turning lessons over to the Bard! Students in years 7-9 completed activities in both tutorial and English lessons. This year’s play was ‘The Tempest’ and the week was finished off by a bit of open air theatre along the cloisters. Act II Scene II, for those trying to guess from the picture!

Students at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School have been out on work experience.  They all nervously looked forward to this and made a huge effort in the preparation in the run up of this important life changing event.

Students had started their planning back in December, this is when they had to decide what type of experience they would like, some students were very proactive and went out and found their own placements.

Staff at LCHS visited each student and were very proud to see them in their individual work places looking smart, conducting themselves in a very mature manner and working hard.  Many of the students enjoyed the experience so much that they would have like to stay for a second week!

Thank you to all of the Lincolnshire and beyond businesses who helped our school and students with work experience, it is not an easy task to have a student in your business, but please keep supporting our local children, as what you do for them is amazing and very much appreciated by us especially, our students and all of the local schools.

Well Done Year 10

Year 12 spent the day looking at their future.  This included talks on universities, UCAS, funding, apprenticeships and jobs.  Students were also able to start the UCAS application process on-line and begin the tortuous process of writing their personal statements.  Help and advice are available from any of the Sixth Form team over the next few months, with a 15th December deadline for university application to work towards.

A group of very talented Year 9 students have been exploring the themes of the Magna Carta through music. This has been particularly exciting as the Magna Carta celebrates its 800th anniversary. The group have been working with Liz Lenten who is an established recording artist from Lincolnshire to compose several songs and they will also have the opportunity to record an album and perform in the Festival 800 later this year.

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.
