Melland FIFA 20 Tournament

FIFA 20 Tournament

Over the past 3 months students at Melland High School have been competing in a FIFA 20 tournament on the PS4. The format was similar to the world cup with player being drawn into groups and needing to come 1st or 2nd in their respective group to advance.

Then it was down to the knockout stages, last 16, quarter final, semi-final and then final. Over the course of the competition 65 matches were played and over 230 goals scored.

It wasn’t always clear who would get through to the final but in the end it came down to two sixth form students, Azman and Baazi. The friends had a very competitive match and the final result was 3-1 to Azman.

A huge thank you to all the staff that went out of their way to support the tournament, especially Mr Morgan and Mr Saddoo for letting us use the multimedia studio and the lunchtime organisers for being so flexible.

Melland Goes Global

As part of Citizenship lessons this year Melland students will take part in a programme run by The Global Scholars network. Throughout the Global Scholars programme, students will be able to communicate directly in e-classrooms with other students across the globe. Multimedia projects invite Global Scholars to explore connections between each year’s global topic and their own cities. Students advance in digital literacy, language communication, and other key learning outcomes  while showing us the world through their eyes.

The Melland students will be investigating “Nature in Our Cities” They will learn about different topics and share their results with their peers across the globe. This will also give them the opportunity to see how nature flourishes in our city and in other cities throughout the world. At the start of the programme they will make a video introducing themselves, their school and where they live. The project will culminate in them carrying out a ‘Community Project’ of their choice relating to nature in our city.

The Global Scholars programme covers 25 countries and 51 cities, including 13 cities in the U.S. and 38 vibrant international cities.
