Our INSPIRE newsletters contain a wide range of activities that extend students’ knowledge of the subjects they love. At Hurworth, we want to develop life-long learners who have a genuine thirst for knowledge. By completing these activities, students are developing their interests and becoming informed young people; this will put them at an advantage when being interviewed by universities or employers in the future.
Every month a KS3 and KS4 version of the newsletter will be produced and given to students during tutor time. The suggested activities are just starting points; ideally these will prompt students to begin to develop a genuine interest in various topics and start to explore these independently. If students do choose to engage with any of the suggested activities, they should let their teachers know so that their efforts can be rewarded in school.
