YEAR EIGHT - VIII
One of the most exciting things about being a Year 8 student at The Lakes School is that, during the spring term, we will give you a small choice about some of the subjects you wish to study when you move in to Year 9. You will be able to choose 3 subjects from Art, Drama, Music, Catering, Resistant Materials and Textiles which means that you will have more lessons in the subjects you do well in and enjoy the most and this will help you move on more quickly before you start your GCSEs. Your teachers will tell you more about this during the year and we will also have an information evening during the spring term for you and your parents.
This is something our current Year 9 students really enjoy. They tell us that they like being able spend more time in the lessons that they might choose as GCSE options. Before you make your choices, it is really important that you work hard in all of your subjects throughout Year 8 so that you can make an informed decision about which subjects to study in Year 9.
Find out more about the options available to you by taking a peak at the ‘Moving in to Year 9 – What are my options?’ section below.
This programme ensures that you are reading books that are matched to your ability and rewards you for correctly answering questions about what you have read by completing online tests that you can access in school or at home. We even have special prizes for students who reach an amazing milestone and read one million words!
