Today Reading East MP- Rob Wilson came over to The Bulmershe School to host a question and answer session for the two GCSE Citizenship classes.
Each group explained their campaign and asked up to three questions to Rob Wilson who responded with advice, opinion and fact.
Every student was grateful for his time and honesty in his responses.
Students will now transcript the Q&A session and use this as evidence for their controlled assessment portfolio- which is worth 60% of their Year 10 grade.

Look at the images below of the Year 10s
spreading awareness about their campaigns to
their peers. Some were able to collect a lot of
signatures for their petitions, gain followers
to their Twitters and just find out about the issues.
Well done to all the groups that set up
stands- What skills did you learn?
YOU all only have 13 days left to put together your year 10 controlled assessment folder of evidence!
Remember it is worth 60% of your final grade!
- You have completed your 10 mark essay…
- You are currently working on your 16 mark doing…
- Then you will all have to write a 4 mark essay- reflecting on the IMPACT of your campaign!
I have told you all many times, and posted many times- but I will do it one more time!
This is even more important knowing that I will not be returning in September- So I want to ensure you all have everything complete this school year!
- You should all have two example folders of evidence- both worth an A grade minimum.
- You all have access to last years example folders- ranging from A*s to E Grades.
- You also- should be aware of the range of resources on this blog + the public folder in school…
You will all need to be able to demonstrate that your campaign was researched, planned, carried out at DECISION makers and there was some impact.
All of you have mark schemes, grading checklists…
I have also given you all a folder of evidence checklist… USE THEM!!!
Remember you need to complete an individual log and a group log…
You will all need to fill in the MUST SHOULD COULD sheet and all will have to reflect on how you have been flexible, willing, a leader and so on…
You should remind yourself that this is an individual piece of work- so if you have supported others and provided work for them… then write it in your individual logs…
You all should remember who your decision makers are and how they can impact your campaign?
Have you emailed them? Asked for an interview? A meeting? Called them?
Have you gathered support of your peers? Cancelled out opposition? Have you collected information to further support your change?
Is your change one of legal responsibility or a global right? Or vice versa?
You must be clear what you are trying to achieve- organise your folder- neatly and annotate everything.
I will hold catch up sessions this thursday and next thursday…
You can print at school, use my resources- such as plastic wallets etc…
YOU HAVE TO PREPARE YOUR STAND…
EVERYTHING MUST BE READY TODAY.
