Week 6 update

Hello everyone! Another busy week in the Year 7,8,9 class filled with a variety of learning experiences. The students have worked very hard this week in each subject and we will now be moving on to different units in our Topic and English lessons.

In English, we have completed our leaflets and have started work around travel writing, which should take us up to the end of the term. The students wrote a piece of travel writing to start this unit off and then they will write another at the end of the term so we can see how they have improved.

In Science, we finished off our unit on magnets with the students designing and making their own microbot that moved by magnetism. We looked at how microbots are used in healthcare. Then designed our robots to carry gadgets to help complete medical tasks. The challenge was to make sure it was light enough to move up a then inside of a jar.

In maths, the students have been working around coordinates and the coordinate plane, they had to work on plotting linear relations. As a challenge for this week, I also sent them on a maths scavenger hunt around the school. They had to complete a variety of puzzles and see who could finish first.

This is the end of our unit on Respect and as an exit point the children will make a video about the Big Idea and their learning expeirences. As an entry point to our new unit called Challenge, I challenged the students to make oragami butterflies and then write about the challenges they have faced and how they over came them.
