Academy Life

13 January 2020Inspiring Future MathematiciansAdditional Maths Enrichment The Mathematics department has been offering Higher Prior Attaining Year 10 students the opportunity to gain an OCR Level 3 FSMQ qualification for the second year running. The main aim of the enrichment is to hopefully increase the STEM retention rate and better equip the students for their transition into post-GCSE Mathematics. This free-standing course provides useful UCAS points regardless of the grade achieved and serves the hereafter mentioned additional purposes. For those students who will go on to study AS and A Level Mathematics, this qualification introduces the subject at that level, with the possibility of subsequent, accelerated progress into AS and A Level Further Mathematics. For the others who will not continue with Mathematics beyond Year 11, the qualification provides a worthwhile and enriching course in its on right by providing a broad, coherent and satisfying course of study. It encourages students to develop more confidence in, and a positive attitude towards Mathematics following on from GCSE (9–1) Mathematics qualifications. It consolidates and develops GCSE level mathematical skill and encourages students to recognise the importance of Mathematics in their own lives and to society. It also provides a strong mathematical foundation for students who go on to study Mathematics at a higher level, those students who go on to study other subjects which make use of Mathematics or those students progressing to vocational qualifications or directly into employment. The Year 10 students have shown such resilience and take much pride in understanding the AS Mathematics content.  “I enjoy the course as it allows me to enhance my prior knowledge and to challenge myself further” - Eshal Year 10. “The course is exciting knowing we are also learning A-level topics. It makes me feel better about doing Maths in A-levels” - Gabrielle Year 10. Royal Holloway, University of London Trip On Thursday, 12th of December, More Able Year 10 students and two members of staff visited the Mathematics department at Royal Holloway, University of London for a taster session on what graduate and post-graduate level studies could entail. The students took part in lectures and workshops to increase their motivation as well as equip them with key information to make informed decisions regarding their future career plans. The students’ feedback was positive: “We were given insight about different mathematical pathways we could take and various occupations they could lead to. As a student who holds great interest in maths, with the possibility of pursuing it in the future, I found the information quite beneficial” – Sneha, Year 10 “The maths puzzles that we completed with the PHD students were challenging and fun” - Qasim, Year 10. “The trip made me more certain concerning my future career choice”- Umayya, Year 10 who now proudly wears her “I love Maths” badge as pictured below.
10 January 2020February Innovation DayThursday January 9th was our third Innovation Day this academic year at Chobham Academy. Students in Years 7-10 and 12 took part in a variety of sessions and activities. Year 7 students visited the local theatre to the pantomime Dick Whittington, students were looking closely and the skills required in performances like this, singing, acting, dancing and the job roles involved from costume design to lighting director. Ben Year 7 – "I really enjoyed the performance it was something, the acting and singing was really good and I picked up tips for my dram lessons. The importance of audience interaction and humour was something I noticed".  Year 8 students were on sight at Chobham Academy carrying out bespoke sessions around crime scenes, forensic science and how to conduct investigations in crime. We were fortunate enough to secure the services of a police dog handler and a senior investigating officer from South Yorkshire police. They spoke to student again about all the different job roles and career pathways available to them should they have an interest in solving crime. Sharae Year 8 - “It was really informative and mad me interested in pursueing a career in being a detective”. Edwina Year 8 - “It was an interesting day it was good to see the police dog and learn how it tracks humean scents. The finger print tests were really interesting and figuring out how to solve crimes".  Year 9 students spent the day looking at our local area and the transformation it has undergone post 2012. Students went out in to East Village and looked at the current business and potential business opportunities there is here. The student carried out investigations in to the impact the Olympics has had on the area and what is next for E20. Year 10 students were involved in sessions linked to healthy relationships and understanding your body. The day was a great success and students asked lots of questions on things they had no idea about. Habib in Year 10 found the workshops engaging and he enjoyed the kinaesthetic approach to learning through role plays in some sessions.  Aryan Year 10 - "We learnt about trust and building relationships with the right people, one of the effects of building relationships with wrong people could be joint enterprise and the impacts associated with it were interesting to learn. We learnt about tips for successful relationships and compromising with people".  Year 12 students had a variety of workshops based on the themes independence, personal finance and charitable work. We secured the services of the company MY Bank who came and educated students about the personal finance decisions they need to begin to think about. Reece Year 12 – "The day was really useful in the My bank sessions, I learnt about trust funds and how to access them, the importance of budgeting and managing your money and what direct debits and standing orders are. I would welcome more days like this its really useful and helps us with life schools we have not really been taught anything about” The day was a great success and we look forward to our fourth Innovation Day 4 on March 25th.
