Extended Assignment Award Winners Announced

Monday 20th October 2014

Congratulations to U5 pupils Harriet Herridge, Felicity Manocha and Emma Taylor who have been announced as the winners of the L5 Extended Assignment. Harriet, Felicity and Emma all received the top A grade for their pieces of extended writing, which they started as L5 pupils.

Pupils began their pieces of extended writing in the Summer Term 2014 and to help them with their assignments, each pupil chose a mentor from a member of Queen Anne’s staff.

Harriet’s assignment asked the question ‘How is music a form for therapy for people with neuro-disabilities?’ Click here to read Harriet’s assignment.

Felicity’s assignment focused on California Manslaughter Law in the Context of John Steinbeck’s ‘Of Mice and Men’ novel. Click here to read Felicity’s assignment.

Emma’s assignment explored the question ‘Should society expect/force children to follow a specific religion?’ Click here to read Emma’s assignment.

The aim of introducing the Extended Assignment to the L5 year group is to introduce the skills of extended writing and independent learning prior to the Sixth Form. Pupils’ pieces of extended writing could cover any type of discipline however they were required to involve an element of research from a variety of sources.

The Extended Assignment enables pupils to:

  • develop and improve their own learning and performance as critical, reflective and independent learners.
  • develop and apply decision-making and, where appropriate, problem-solving skills.
  • extend their planning, research, critical thinking, analysis, synthesis, evaluation and presentation skills.
  • develop and apply skills creatively, demonstrating initiative and enterprise.
  • use their learning experiences to support their aspirations for A Level choices, higher education and/or career development.
  • be able to transfer skills developed as part of their extended project to other areas of study.
  • be able to develop their extended writing skills for the more challenging Extended Project in the Lower Sixth.
