Term 3 Week 9 Update

Hello all!
Another fun filled week in London class as we begin to end each topic we are currently studying in each subject. Early in the week, we had an open day with potential new students and their families coming to visit. To end this week we had the HFS Dance Party where the children could show off their dance moves. The parent-teacher conferences will be taking place next Wednesday, please visit the school to make sure you have a time slot. Reports will also be sent home today as well as the Cambridge Checkpoint exam results, each student has had a fantastic term three.

In English, we started writing our sci-fi stories, they started by coming up with a what if question e.g what if earth was invaded by aliens? Then, they used this to create ideas and then they have started on the opening to their story.

This week in history, we began to wrap up our work on The First World War by looking at Trench Warfare. First, the students had a scavenger hunt to see what they could find out about the trenches, they read a variety of sources and answered questions.

After this, the students started a project to show what life was like in the trenches. Matthew and Leigh-ah worked on making a model of a trench and Adam and Erin have started a Googleslides presentation to show a variety of information.
