WCGC Go for Grammar!
WCGC GO FOR GRAMMAR! PROGRAMME 2022/23
The Go for Grammar! Programme itself consists of a series of themed ‘workshop’ events for Year 5 pupils which take place on Saturdays throughout the academic year. Each workshop has an overall theme and will include Mathematics and English tutorial sessions, run by members of the Westcliff High School for Boys’ teaching staff, covering material that is relevant to 11 Plus examination questions. Workshop themes for the 2022/2023 academic year are:
Saturday 1 October 2022 – Action, Adventure and Leadership
A series of exciting outdoor tasks run by cadets from our WHSB Combined Cadet Force (CCF) Army, Navy and RAF sections.
Saturday 5 November 2022 – All Things Creative
Pupils will have sessions in Art, Music and Technology to learn and develop their creative skills, using our dedicated specialist facilities.
Saturday 21 January 2023 – Past, Present and Future
Activities in History, Geography and Philosophy will challenge the pupils to consider the past, the present and the future and stretch them to apply their understanding to the Humanities.
Saturday 4 March 2023 – Lively Laboratories
A series of hands-on practical activities in the School’s science laboratories will introduce pupils to the exciting science of chemical reactions in Chemistry, the relationships between matter and energy in Physics, and the science of life in Biology.
Saturday 6 May 2023 – Sports Bonanza
An action packed selection of outdoor summer sporting opportunities that are fun and inclusive for pupils of all abilities.
The workshops commence at 9.00am and finish at 3.00pm. Children attending will need to bring a packed lunch on the day. To offer as many local Year 5 children as possible the opportunity to attend a workshop, each child will be offered one workshop place following receipt of an on-line application (see below). Please select your child’s choice of workshop in order of preference when applying. We will do our best to accommodate each child’s preferences. Workshop attendance is priced at £15. There will be no charge to attend for those children in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding.
Places are still available for the 2022/23 programme. We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Westcliff High School for Boys.
