Hello everyone! This week has been filled with a variety of fun-filled learning activities in the Year 7,8,9 class. Firstly, I would like to welcome back Leigh-ah Duggan a former student of HFS, she has settled really well and made and an excellent start.
In English, we have spent the week working on writing movie reviews. The students looked at how to write different parts of movie reviews and how to write those parts this included introducing the movie, discussing character portrayal, summarising the plot, and discussing visuals and action. Finally, the students put all of this together and started writing a full movie review based on the movie they watched and made notes on as homework.
In History, we continued to look at the American Revolution. The main focus was to look at the events that lead up to the American Revolution and how they caused them. To do this the students went on a scavenger hunt around the school to locate QR codes, they scanned them and this linked them to the relevant information for each event. The students then came back to class and they were asked to write a tweet that summarised one of the events and expressed the colonist’s feelings on it.
In Geography, we looked at Urban sprawl and the impact this has had on cities, the students created presentations on this.
That’s all for this week, I hope everyone has a great weekend!
