RE Curriculum

The aim of the RE curriculum is to support pupils’ personal search for meaning by engaging enquiry into the question ‘What is it to be human?’ with students exploring answers offered by religion, belief and Philosophy.

The RE learning is based on guidance provided within the Lancashire Agreed Syllabus and also includes extended curriculum aspects from the Welsh Board unit B GCSE. The skills and attitudes are developed and embedded across the full five year curriculum.

All topics include the following concepts: Shared Human Experience [SHE], Living Religious Tradition [LRT], Beliefs and values [B & V], Search for personal meaning [SPM].

Spanish Curriculum

All students in Years 7, 8 and 9 study Spanish and they can then choose Spanish as an option to study at GCSE if they wish to continue learning a language.

In Years 7, 8 and 9 pupils study the basics of Spanish through a number of different topics which are listed below and they use all 4 skills (Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking). Pupils will also learn about the culture of Spain and Spanish speaking countries and how it is different to the culture that we live in.

If a pupil decides to take Spanish as a GCSE they will revisit familiar topics in more detail and with a more extensive range of vocabulary. The GCSE again involves all 4 skills. Writing and speaking are assessed across Year 10 and 11 and are worth 30% each of the final mark, reading and listening are assessed by an external exam at the end of Year 11 and are worth 20% each.

History Curriculum

The History Department seeks to help students answer the question – How did things get to be this way?

There is nothing in the world more intriguing and mysterious once we realize the complicated events and causes that led to our present day. History encourages our students to analyse the past assessing the complex web of causes to help explain why particular events and phenomena occur and it communicates its findings in a variety of narratives.

Health & Social Care Curriculum

At Rhyddings, Health & Social Care is part of the options curriculum for students in Yr 10 &11.

We believe that by introducing and teaching learners about aspects of personal development from birth to the end of life, and relevant information about the Health, Social care and early Years sectors we are providing students with skills, knowledge and understanding in contexts that are directly relevant to employment situations. This further enhances their choices for further progress at college in one of the given areas and so increases their employability within the health, social care and early year’s sector.

Geography Curriculum

The Geography department sees its distinctive contribution to be related to stimulating within the students an interest in, and a sense of wonder about, places. Geography helps students to make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world.

Students look at where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environments interact, and how a diverse range of economics, societies and environments are interconnected. It builds on student’s own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from the personal to the global.

PE & Sport Curriculum

We strongly believe that provision of physical education both inside the curriculum and out is crucial in helping young people to learn and develop life skills. It is this reason that all our students will complete a GCSE in Sport Studies.

Students receive 2 x 1hr 20min lessons per week; one being an indoor lesson and the other an outdoor lesson. In Year 7 & 8 both of these lessons are practical/ skills focused.

In Year 9 students follow Edexcel GCSE Physical education qualification; one of the weekly sessions will then focus more on theory work such as the role of sport in a healthy lifestyle.

Students will take on a variety of roles such as leader and official, both of which can be used for moderation purposes for the GCSE course rather than a performance based assessment. Students are involved in the continuous process of planning, performing and evaluating their own and others work in each activity area we undertake.

Outstanding students who show good leadership qualities and attend regular extra-curricular activities may be selected as sports ambassadors in Year 10. This role allows students to act in a coaching capacity with local primary students, and to gain a qualification in Sports leadership. Other leadership qualifications such as the Young Sports Leaders award are also available.

Discover Democracy Award

discoverdemocracy

Maizee-Leigh Cryne, Bethany Berry, Zak Miller, Mueeiz Ali, Megan Storey and Damon Smith.

Rhyddings has just received a brand new award for schools that encourage pupils to take an interest in the democratic process. We are one of the first 19 schools to be recognised by the British Youth Council for encouraging pupils to have their say in society – both within the school or through social action projects in the local community.

The Discovering Democracy Award, which was created to support the need to develop character as well as a strong grounding in core academic subjects, was launched by the British Youth Council in partnership with the Cabinet Office and the Department for Education in September.

The Award aims to showcase those schools who engage young people, particularly those aged 16+, with democracy from an early age, whether that is voting for their representatives or  a school council, or voter registration, or getting involved in social action campaigns.

All awards are judged by a panel of young people and will celebrate and share the success of schools and colleges that go further in equipping their students with the skills and knowledge to use their voice in our society.

Rhyddings held recent elections to elect student parliament candidates, where students were asked place their votes at ‘polling stations’ around school. They have also voted on the issues they would most like to be debated by their local youth parliament representative. Back in September, 15 students visited also visited the Houses of Parliament in London to help gain a better understanding of how the country is run.

Rotary Young Chef Competition

Zak Khan, Cameron Walker, Mrs Jolly, Ryan Richardson, Doreen Lawton, Susan Haworth, Maureen Hartley & Tamzin Riley.

Rhyddings catering students recently competed against each other to determine who would go forward to the next round of the Young Chef competition organised by the Rotary club of Church and Oswaldtwistle.

Cameron Walker, Ryan Richardson and Tamzin Riley were asked to prepare a three course meal under a time restriction and had to take into consideration: making a healthy meal, food presentation, organisation and planning, neatness and cleanliness of the working area.

Judges from the Rotary club were Zak Khan, Maureen Hartley and Susan Haworth. The judges had a difficult task, as all the meals produced were excellent, but the overall winner was Cameron Walker, whose menu of homemade tomato soup, spaghetti bolognese and strawberry mousse, just tipped the scales.

Cameron now goes forward to the District final at the Lancaster and Morecambe College in January to compete against up to 70 other potential competitors from other Rotary clubs. If successful, he could eventually go the national in Leicester, where last year’s winner received a holiday for two in Italy!

Year 7 Continents Design Competition

The Year 7 students took part in a Continents competition in the Zone on Tuesday last week.

In groups they were asked to come up with a pop up café/restaurant based around their continent. They designed the café/restaurant building and plan, company name & logo, door sign, menus, a newspaper,radio advert, uniforms and aprons.

It was very difficult to choose a winning team but after much discussion, we decided on ‘A taste of Madagascar.’

Congratulations to the team, we’re looking forward to working with the group of Year 7’s to make their idea come to life. The winning team win house points for their continent.

Well done, Africa!

On Friday 20th November, a group of Year 9 students visited both Manchester Cathedral and the Manchester Buddhist Centre.  The trip was a fantastic success.  The students enjoyed a full tour and activities in the cathedral; and even a fire alarm wasn’t enough to dampen their spirits and confidence when practising meditation in the Buddhist Centre. Both venues said they were very impressed with Rhyddings students and would gladly invite us again.  Well done to all who attended.

Media students conquer the ‘Dragons’ Den’

The Media Studies team with Lancashire Police Commissioner Clive Grunshaw and Business Studies teacher Mrs Bancroft.

On Monday 16th November, four of our Year 11 Media Studies students visited Accrington & Rossendale College to take part in a ‘Dragons’ Den’ style competition – and came away with the full amount of £1000!

George Berry, Beth Graham, Damon Smith and Ruby Wilkinson pitched their ideas for a campaign aimed at raising awareness of and reducing the alcohol consumption of young people in Hyndburn.

In preparation for the competition, the students produced mock-ups for a poster campaign, developed an idea for a short films and compiled a comprehensive business plan.

At the event, the students pitched their ideas to a panel of ‘dragons’ that included Clive Grunshaw, Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner, Rick Wilson of LCC Trading Standards, Luke Bidwell of charity Early Break, Tim Grose of LCC Young People’s Service and Lisa Hartley Head of Safeguarding and Personnel Development.

Despite the intimidating panel, the students presented confidently and professionally which very much impressed the ‘dragons’. As a result, the team was awarded the full amount of £1000 to put towards creating their awareness campaign. They also received a Windows tablet computer for the Media Studies department and an impressive glass trophy.

Chef Anthony helps students prepare for success

arcol

Accrington and Rossendale college Chef Anthony Muldowney was in Rhyddings last week to help inspire our Year 11 catering students as they prepare for their GCSE exam.

The students have been tasked with planning a two course meal based on a country of their choice, which should be of a professional, restaurant standard.

Chef Anthony came into school to discuss potential menu choices, shared good kitchen practice and demonstrated a couple of a couple of dishes.

The final exam, which takes place in February, will be held at AccRoss’ new Heartwood centre. Students will serve their meal to parents and guests in true Masterchef style at the centre’s new Roots Restaurant, where they will have use of the kitchen’s professional-grade equipment.
