Another short week at HFS as Hanguel day was celebrated on Wednesday, the rest of the week was filled with lots of learning and fun experiences. There are only two weeks left until half term and there is still so much to fit in.
In Science, this week the students conducted their first experiment of the year. As a class, we dropped parachutes out of the cafeteria window and timed how long it took to reach the ground, to see which parachute was the best. This was a lot of fun and we even need to call Mr. Choi to help us as some parachutes got stuck. After that, the students came back to the classroom to write up their investigation.
We have started a new unit in PE, the students are now working on net games so we have now started playing badminton. To start this unit students worked on their own at first to see how many times they could keep the shuttlecock in the air. Next, the student moved into pairs to see if they could get a rally going.
In English, the students have finished writing their stories and we will move onto nonfiction writing next week. The students will be writing explanation texts, they will need to understand the structure and features of this type of text so they can write it successfully.
That’s all for this week, have a great weekend.
