Year 8 Graduation work
Year 8 complete outstanding graduation work
The end of the academic year for Year 8 students usually ends with their graduation evening. Due to the coronavirus pandemic this has not been possible. However, this has not stopped them working hard on their Graduation Challenges!
The aim of graduation is to celebrate the success and achievements of all students and to ensure they are KS4 ready. At the start of the year they are issued with a graduation booklet which includes a range of challenges and tasks to be completed both inside and outside school. The points earned from the challenges they choose and complete determine if they graduate with a pass, a merit or distinction.
As some of the challenges in the booklet were not possible during COVID-19, Miss Cork added a 14 day lockdown challenge:
Day 1 – Selfie with a word describing you
Day 2 – Make a list of 5 things that make you proud to be you
Day 3 - Complete a random act of kindness
Day 4 – Design your own 20 minute fitness activity and get someone to complete it with you
Day 5 – Choose a range of objects from around the house and test to see if they will float or sink
Day 6 – Writing Task – You’ve been given three wishes, what would they be and why?
Day 7 – Draw a self-portrait, this could be a picture of you or something that represents you
