Parents Evening

Had a good parent's evening, nothing new learnt really.

Matthew's is working at Level 5a/6c currently for English. If he can get to L6b by end of KS3 I will be over the moon! His target is L5, so fingers crossed.

Maths no problems there, they had a maths test that morning, he scored 92% with the class average being 78%! Brill.

Science - good marks for tests and homework, physics teacher says he always does well in the tests "somehow" but is disorganised in class. Biology/chemistry teacher pleased with him slightly better at Chemistry than Biology, I asked about him doing triple science next year she said its highly competitive and there are only 60 places! Personally I can't see a problem he is in the top half of the class on the whole.

Spanish in the top few of the class, the class is mixed ability and the work is differentiated. I did tell her that Math is thinking of taking it as an option she said he should get a C at least.

Geography- teacher wants him in his Geography class next year as was going to twist him arm if he was not considering doing it as an option.

ICT teacher -a substitute- but I was really impressed with him even though he looked really young, he was a very enthusiastic teacher and was exceptionally pleased with Math's progress since he had taken over class.

Good School Year so far.

Math has had a good Yr 9 so far. Keeping up with the set 1 work with no problems.
Set 3 work is also going well, but we have little idea how his English is coming along.
One thing has changed is his expected levels. At the end of last school year all levels were a L5 apart from maths which was given a N/A! This last autumn term all levels have shifted to L6 apart from English and RE. He is due to meet or exceed these targets apart from History which he may not get a L6 in. Not concerned about history as he has no plans to take it for GCSE.
We have a parents evening on Thurs so looking forward to that.
