Final Update for 2019/2020

Hello everyone!

What a fantastic way to end the year with international projects,  classwork, awards, graduation and farewells. Congratulations to Theo for winning the Commendation award and Dayeon for winning the Citizenship award, worthy recipients, who have both done extremely well this term. Also, Year 5-9 are sad to see Dayeon and Leigh-ah move on to new schools they will both be missed by all at HFS and good luck. I must also congratulate Leigh-ah on graduating from Middle School she has spent most of her academic years at HFS, it has been a big part of her life and I wish her all the success in the future.

Much of this week has been spent getting ready for the final assembly, working on projects, rehearsing and putting together the videos the class created to show off some of their learning from this term. That’s all for this week, I hope everyone has a fantastic summer and I look forward to seeing most of you all again in August.

Term 3 Week 11 Update

Hello everyone.

A very busy week for everyone at HFS. Thank you and well done to the Student Council, who after helping to organise Sports Day then went on to help organise the School Dance Party. It should be a lot of fun and I hope to see many of you back to school to enjoy this event shortly.

 

In English, this week the students wrote and edited their own poems based around the objects they photographed last week, I was very pleased with the poems they created. After writing the poems, the students then spent a lesson working on poetry performance, they watched examples of poets performing their work and ended with the student performing the poem they created.

Also this week as a class we discussed the importance of Online Saftey and created a poster to show what the students learnt.

Week 10 Term 3 Update

Hello everyone,

An eventful week that ended with Sports Day which, unfortunately, was cut short due to the weather. The students did compete very well in the events that did take place and showed great teamwork and sportsmanship. I think we all wished we could have stayed outside and completed every event.

In English, we continued our work around poetry, the students looked at observation writing so that we can write our own poems. The students went around the school and outside to take pictures of different objects. After that, we went back to the classroom, choose one picture and began to think of different ways to describe that object, using different figurative devices

We started our new unit Moving People last week and the students were set a piece of homework to find out about their families migration nationally and internationally. They then record this onto GoogleEarth showing the movement of their families and explaining the reasons. We also looked at the push and pull factors of migration.

 

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