Term 3 week 1 update

Hello everyone and welcome back to the third and final term of this academic year, I hope everyone had a fun and restful Easter Break. This week has been a very hectic week as the Year 9s had to take the Cambridge Checkpoint Exams for Science, Maths, and English. I am sure they have done very well in their exams and much of the week was dedicated to them to help them prepare for them.

We also started off the week taking time to acknowledge Earth Day and day dedicated to help the environment. Mr. Kearney took the opportunity to have the assembly outside to discuss the environment and the ways we can look after it. We also stayed outside for mentoring and allowed the children to explore the environment around them. We will also have a cleanup day next to help the environment and get the children involved in helping the local community.

Inbetween the preparation for the exams we also managed to start our new unit Relationship for the IMYC. For the entry point to this, we used dominos to show how things are connected and that every individual thing affects and is affected by other things, which is the Big Idea for this unit. We also started an art projected to show how different things are related.

That’s all for this week, I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Final Week of Term 2

Hello everyone! Here we are at the end of another very successful term at Hyundai Foreign School, a term filled with challenges and new experiences for all of London class. We spent some of this week preparing for the final assembly, for this, the students will be showing some of the Science that they have learnt this term. The final assembly was fantastic and I was very impressed with the way each class showcased their work.

In Science, we had a lot of fun creating a rollercoaster to show conservation of energy, kinetic energy, and gravitational energy. The students really got into this activity, designing and making their first attempt, which sadly didn’t work. However, they showed great resilience as they tried to edit and fix the rollercoaster, but they eventually had to make another one that was successful.

For each of the other subjects, it was really about wrapping each of them ready to start term three, after the Easter break. This meant that they spent some time this week creating an Exit Point on the most recent IMYC unit Challenge. In English, they finished their biographies and when the students come back we will be focussing on Gothic Horror.

I hope everyone has a fun and restful break ready to start new learning for term three.
