We’re at the end of another busy week of learning and discovery here at HFS. We had a blast this week at the Busan Science Museum. The children had a great time while deepening their understanding of some of the scientific topics we have looked at this year. In English this week, we took the role of reporters as we interviewed and role played characters from The Highwayman. The children learned to take notes effectively before writing their newspaper articles which included quotations and captions. They typed up their articles and learned more about the editing options of Google Docs.
In maths, we continued our work on statistics as we looked at line graphs and frequency tables. The children carried out further surveys throughout the school before presenting their findings in tables and graphs. These skills should come in handy in future science lessons.
In IPC, we learned how humans can control the evolution of species by selecting for desirable traits. The children also learned the difference between inherited and acquired traits.
The children are nearing the end of their work on their International Week projects and they are indeed shaping up well.
That’s all for now folks. Have a great weekend!
