RCT World of Work: KS3 Literacy, Numeracy and Science Days
Tonypandy Community College KS3 students will take part in literacy, numeracy and
science sessions from the 21st January to 4th February, organised in conjunction with
the external agency, RCT World of Work. Each KS3 class will participate in a one
hour session which will relate their studies to real-life situations and the workplace.
Year 7 students will consider and learn about scientific developments over the last
20 years and what’s ahead in the next 20 years. Students will consider how the
advancements in science will affect them.
Year 8 students will learn about the role numeracy plays in their “life journey” –
current use, use in life/workplace and all the way through to retirement.
Year 9 students will plan Dragon’s Den presentations in groups and deliver to the
class. There will be a competitive element to this workshop, which will develop
students’ skills in oracy and working with others.
Further workshops will be available during the year, so all KS3 year groups will
benefit from opportunities to develop different skills.
