It has been excellent to see such a high return rate in terms of ‘handing in’ work set but also work of such a high standard, generally. Pupils are now being encouraged to approach assignments without their notes and setting time constraints on the exercise – details of this are found on the assignments tab.

S3 Practical Cookery

S3 Practical Cookery pupils are invited to pre-order a FREE Practical Activity Pack.  Each pack will contain a recipe card and the ingredients required to make the recipe.  To order a pack all you have to do is log into your class Team and click yes I want a pack on the poll.

Collection: Monday 8th March 9.30-11.30. Staff from Home Economics will be at the main entrance handing out the packs. Please make sure you wear a facemask and adhere to social distancing.

Please ensure you pre-order your pack,  as this will help us to prevent food waste & be more sustainable.

Water Bottle Workout Live today 11.40am

Mr Hewitt will be hosting a live workout today and there will be some weighted exercises. We know you won’t all have weights at home so you can use a water bottle as a substitute. This can be anything from a 500ml to a 2L bottle (and no it doesn’t need to be water juice etc is fine). The link has been posted to your team for you to access. Amazing effort to see 53 pupils participating last week hope to see you again today!

THE COURSE HAS FINISHED!

Pupils have now completed all topics within the Higher PE course.  This means that the focus moves to a revision of content and upgrading knowledge.  THANK YOU to all the pupils who have worked so hard throughout the year and especially through the months of online learning.  The revision focus kicks off with Live Lessons on Factors Impacting (Performance and PDPs) on Monday and Tuesday for both classes.  Over 90% of pupils attended last week’s Live Lessons so it would be great to match, or even improve these numbers.

Pupils are encouraged to get in touch if they have any questions via the Higher PE Teams page or by contacting Mr Ryan directly (email).

Virtual Pilgrimage to South Sudan

This Monday 1/3/21 marks the beginning of our virtual pilgrimage to South Sudan and back. The Journey will involve virtually covering the distance from Taylor High School to Juba (South Sudan) with two stops at Lisieux and Vatican City Rome before returning home. This is in aid of raising funds for SCIAF who are focussing this years Lenten Appeal on South Sudan. Every week pupils, staff, parents and members of the community are being encouraged to record the distances of their walks/runs before filling out a form on the THS Whole School Community team on a Friday. The entire journey is over 21,000 km so it is vital that as many people get involved as possible! You can also sponsor a pupil/staff member by donating to our ‘Virtual Wee Box’ via the link posted below.
