Another busy week of fun and learning has flown by here in HFS. This week we started our new IPC topic, ‘Extreme survivors’. We will learn about the adaptations animals have to allow them to
live in extreme environments. We learned how living things have changed over time. As part of this, we studied the process of fossilisation before having a go at making our own fossils.
We also started a new topic in maths; we have started studying data handling. The children began by carrying out a survey in Y7/8/9. They then created graphs based on the data they collected. later in the week, we moved on from using bar charts to using pictographs and histograms. In English, we learned about report writing and open and closed questioning. We did some reporter work by compiling a list of questions to ask the main characters in ‘The Highwayman’. We will act out these interviews next week before writing our newspaper reports on the event. In P.E, we are now on our net games unit with our current focus being on the challenging sport of volleyball.
That’s all for now folks! Have a great weekend!
