Interhouse DayThursday 13th December
We are excited to announce the first interhouse day this coming Thursday 13th December for all students at Bottisham Village College. Interhouse day is an integral part of our transition to a house system earlier this term, and students will be working in all curriculum areas across the school trying to earn points for their house.
The timings of the day are normal, with students getting a break at 11am and lunch at 1:25pm. Students will not, however, be in timetabled lessons, but instead have been offered the chance to represent their house in a variety of faculty areas:
Year 7 – PE, computer science, science and languages
Year 8 – PE, maths, languages, art and technology
Year 9 – humanities, art, technology, food and English
Year 10 – performing arts, science, computer science and humanities
Year 11 – performing arts, maths and English
Each student will be involved in one or two curriculum areas, and will be given activities that enhance and enrich the normal curriculum learning of that subject. Students will earn points for their house for producing excellent work and showing excellent teamwork with other students in their house.
After lunch time, all students will return to their form rooms and will be given a surprise form time challenge – an opportunity to earn more points for their house!
We hope this day will leave students excited to learn more in the subjects they have been working in, and also foster the community spirit of the college that the house system has already begun.
