“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
(Matthew 5:14-16 NIV) 

The Governors and staff of Lowton Church of England High School are committed to the provision of a high quality education in a Christian context. We aim to provide a school where we can live out our ethos of Caring, Learning and Succeeding on a daily basis and let our light shine. At the heart of the commitment is the notion of the uniqueness and infinite worth of the individual, that every person is valuable in the eyes of God and that they are, indeed, the light of the world.

This week Year 7 have been 'getting switched on' with metacognition skills.

One of their research homeworks was about wild animals. They were using Numeracy skills, ICT, Art and Spanish to produce Top Trump style cards. They researched the topic and the key words for wild animals, then produced some great pieces of work. They used their cards to play a top trumps style game and also used their Spanish conversational skills in lessons. Well done to all of the Spanish Year 7 classes who participated in this!

Staff have been giving pupils opportunities to work metacognitively on a regular basis and next week year 7 and 10 will be trying to use their metacognitive skills as often as possible. Each time they do they will earn a 'learning lightbulb' on their meta card. Those with completed cards will go into a prize draw.
