Update Week 12

This week in Math we looked at probability, we started the week by each rolling an eight-sided dice 100 times and recording our results. We then learnt about theoretical probability and compared our experimental outcomes with theoretical probability. We also learned about simultaneous events and used two-way tables and tree diagrams to work out the probability of some combination of events occurring.

In English we started a new unit on Poetic Language, each student had to analyze their favourite song as if it was a poem. We then looked at different features and types of poems and had to identify a variety of poems into their types. Students also learned about different features of poems and had to identify them in their song lyrics.

In IMYC we looked at how we know chemical reactions take place, exothermic and endothermic reactions and combustion in Science. In Technology learners had to look at how materials used in winter clothes has changed over time and look at the advantages as well as disadvantages of some of the traditional and modern materials we use.

That is all for last week, hope everyone had a good weekend and is ready for the week ahead.

Please look out for an email that will contain a permission slip for the class trip that will happen on 30 November.
