Hello everyone. Back to normality this week, with no trips, events, tests or assembly to prepare for so our week has returned to hard work and fun in the classroom.
In English, we have continued our work around Noughts and Crosses. We have examed different themes of the text and written a creative piece in the style of Malorie Blackman.
In maths, we have started data handling. To start this unit, I have asked students to carry out their own investigation. They have chosen a question they wish to investigate, written a hypothesis, created a survey to collect data, and researched secondary data to back up or their hypothesis.
In History we have looked at two different leaders, firstly we examined Hitler, how he came to power, how he used propaganda and how he used terror to keep and maintain control in Nazi Germany. We then moved onto Martin Luther King, we spent a lesson looking at the background to the Civil Rights Movement and used online software to create a timeline about him.
