Welcome to Ysgol Rhosnesni. It has been a very busy term with lots of activities and projects taking place across the school. We have welcomed students from our cluster primary schools to English Master Classes, launched the Arts Council Lead Creative Schools programme, held Mock Interview Day for Year 11 students and students are preparing for our school trip to Berlin on February 16th and our trip to Iceland in April.
Our Year 11 Parent Consultation Evening is on Wednesday 15th February between 4.00pm and 7.00pm. We look forward to seeing parents and guardians at this important evening to discuss the progress and achievement of Year 11 students.
After a very busy half term we will be closing for the half term holiday on Friday 17th February at 3.00pm and re-open on Monday 27th February.
There will be a Maths Half Term School on Tuesday 21st February between 9.00am – 1.00pm. Every Year 11 student is encouraged to attend the Maths workshops. Details have been sent home.
At Ysgol Rhosnesni High School we are proud of the achievements of our students in a wide range of fields both academic and enrichment, and we believe in high standards and expectations. We believe that we can make a positive difference to the future life-chances of each and every young person.
We believe in working together with our students to develop their future roles as ambassadors of learning, citizens and workers and aim to equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding they will need for future adult life.
During Year 10, pupils will be given opportunities to revise and develop work done in KS3 over all skill and topic areas. Topics covered will include material from everyday activities personal and social life and the world around us. Pupils should aim to understand and use vocabulary, grammar structures and tenses, old and newly learnt, with increasing confidence and accuracy.
During Year 11, pupils will finalise their controlled assessments and further develop their listening and reading skills. More emphasis is placed on speaking and pupils will work on topics including media, freetime, holidays, social issues and the environment. Pupils should aim to understand and use vocabulary, structures, grammar and at least 3 tenses with confidence, accuracy and variety.
