WEEK 32 - Friday 24 May 2024

Hello and welcome to this week’s Year 9 Blog. 

I am sure you will agree that ‘time’ really does fly by. Unbelievably, we have arrived at the end of another term, meaning there are only 35 school days left of Year 9. It certainly feels like yesterday that I was discussing the start of Year 9. 

This week the students of Year 9 had the opportunity to take part in the ‘Enterprise Day’ event, here at Hessle High School. The Enterprise Day is a whole day event, where students can design and market a chosen monthly subscription product. Working in small teams the students design a product, produce a presentation and eventually ‘pitch’ their idea to their peers. The winning group/product from each classroom, progressing through to the semi-finals. A winning product is eventually chosen after each Team completes a ‘Dragons Den’ style presentation to a local business entrepreneur and senior members of staff. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to work with friends and students who they may not normally work with.  Every year I am blown away by the amazing ideas and products the students design, with this year’s winners designing a monthly wellbeing and mental health awareness product. 

Next half term students in Year 9 will participate in a series of Maths exams, to be completed the week beginning 10 June. Information relating to exam preparation and revision topics can be found on Teams. Students are encouraged to use ‘Sparx’ and ‘’ to help prepare and revise before sitting their exams. 

Please encourage your child/children to use the revision material available to them, this is a good opportunity for the students to get into the habit of sitting and working in exam conditions as they move ever closer to Year 10. 

I hope that you all have a restful and enjoyable holiday, and we manage to see some sun.
