This weeks highlights

I just wanted to take a minute to share some of my proudest moments in lessons this week, without names but sharing a little insight.

Year 11 – Computer Science student that was adamant 2 weeks ago he couldn’t sit down as in his words “I just can’t do it, so what’s the point?”. Spent a dedicated 40 minutes revising by matching definitions, stepping through binary addition and inspiring others to follow suit.

Year 11 – Another Computer Science student who took on the massive challenge of coding a ceasear cypher. When he started the lesson not knowing how to do inputs and ended it decyphering the exit message.

Year 10 – Student entered the room, started the retrieval quiz and said “Oh, it’s theory work day I need my…”. Yes, two weeks in and he is clear on routines that will support him in achieving great things.

Year 9 – I challenged them to “think like a computer scientist” in their homework when defining key terms. The level of care and precision one student showed was extraordinary.
