The Great QB Speak Out - Year 8 iWeek

Year 8 have embarked on a week wrapped around the topics of 'Black Lives Matter', equality and discrimination.

Approaching these challenging topics, the year group have all attended a screening of Hidden Figures at The Mac cinema, returning to school for the afternoon to critique the film and its key messages.

The Great QB Speak Out competition has now begun and pupils are now using the film and a variety of other sources, including newspaper articles, key facts documents and images to provide the research needed for their two minute public speech. All pupils will be creating their speech and initially delivering it to their group, with a number then going on to deliver to the year group in the Great QB Speak Out. The hard work begins now so keep following our blog to find out more.
