Some of our Year 8 students have been creating really great trailers to advertise their favourite books. Click on the image below to watch them and then vote for your favourite:
Mrs Robinson has made a research Guide for your Controlled Assessment on Lifestyle Analysis. You can also access it by clicking on the link in the box below:
Mr Dixon’s Year 8 class have been working in the Library with Mrs Robinson this term making their own book trailers using Animoto.
This is the first one – well done to Tom, Libby, Alex and Natalie!
Animoto allows you to upload images, add text and music then remix in various ways. I am sure that this one will go through a few versions before the students are finally happy with it. We will upload all of the finished book trailers to YouTube and embed them on this site and on our LibGuides page for the project.
Mrs Robinson has been making a range of Research Guides for the Science Department. They are linked for you below. You can use them in school or at home. Please let her know if you have any problems using them or if you have any links we could add!
Here is the link to our Research Guides for your Physics and Biology topics:

Welcome to Year 6 students! This post has been made to help you with your project.
Please choose one endangered animal and find answers to these questions. You will then have to present your findings in a PowerPoint.
Here are a range of websites that Mrs Robinson has found for you. If you click on the link, it will open in a new window.
This week, we are going to introduce our Year 7 and 8 classes to our reading development wiki called Reading is Fun! We hope that students will use this to track their reading development during this year. They are asked to write a page about their favourite books and magazines using images and embedded videos to enliven the page. Students are also encouraged to comment on each other’s pages with positive ideas and support.
There is a full page with embedded presentations on this site and Mrs Robinson has also put these on this post.
If you are a Dixie student in Year 7 or 8, have a look at the presentation below to remind you how to use the wiki. Please ask Mrs Robinson if you need your username and password.
The presentation as a PowerPoint on SlideShare:
Here are the photographs from our fantastic Write Path session, which I wrote about previously.
Here are the links to the stories. Our students worked in pairs to write a paragraph, collaborating on stories with schools from around the world. Please read them and tell us what you think! The names in the links belong to the authors who started each story.
