This will be our first Super Learning Day of the 2018/19 academic year, with two more to follow.
Super Learning Day is The East Manchester Academy’s PSHE curriculum day. All students take part in lessons based around the PSHE/SMSC statutory framework, which is mandatory for all schools. These days take place three times per academic year and are vital for our student’s personal and social educational needs.
During Super Learning Day 1 Year 11 students will be taking part in a day named Your Future and You. During this day students will take part in sessions on apprentices, meditation, relaxation, interview skills and employability skills in addition to attending a careers networking event.
Year 10 students will take part in a day named Your Financial Future. During this day students will be learning about personal finances, money management, careers in finance and the dangers of pay day loans.
Year 9 students will be take part in a GCSE options day. Students will be attending practical lessons with a PSHE/SMSC focus in Dance, Performing Arts, RE, Business Studies, Art, Design and Technology. Additionally, students will attend a session names Medical Mavericks, which will be delivered by NHS staff and will involve practical activities such as performing sonograms, taking blood pressure and first aid. More information about the workshops can be found on the Medical Mavericks website.
Year 8 students will be attending a day named Multi-Cultural Britain. The aim of this day is to challenge perceptions of what Britishness is as well as discussing what British Values mean to us. All students will be attending a play by theatre group Odd Arts on radicalisation in Britain, as well as attending practical sessions on British Pakistani cooking, learning Arabic, African’s in the UK and understanding Latin culture.
