Hello everyone. As the end of term draws nearer so does the Winter Show a key event in the HFS calendar and this means that this week has been very busy. As well as all the learning that goes on for each subject, we as a class need to find time to practice our performances. We have also started making crafts to be sold at the Winter Show to help raise funds for the PTA.
This week was also extra busy as we had our first trip as a class to Padosori Coastal Path, this was a great learning experience and really tied in well to what we have been learning in geography. Leading up to our trip we looked at a variety of coasts and describe these then answered the question are all coasts the same. With this trip, the children were able to visit a unique coastal area, which has columnar joints and find out how these were formed. The students also spent time listing the physical and human features as well as taking photos and sketching what they could see.
When we weren’t doing something related to the Winter Show, lessons went on as normal. In maths, the children have been working on fractions, decimals, and percentages and being able to convert from one to the other.
In History, the students are now working on the Civil Rights Movement and we did a quick introduction as to why this started and we will move onto the key figures, groups, and events in the final weeks.
That’s all for this week, have a good weekend everyone!
