As an end to our IPC unit the student invited the other class to see the models of historical tourist sites and discussed each one.

The students have so far planned a bike ride around Taehwa park, exploring Taehwa pavilion, visiting a local market for street food, visiting an ice cream shop and coffee shop. More details will be posted soon.

Also. as part of this new unit students surveyed different maybes of staff so they could come up with the perfect destination for their holiday preferences and then create a persuasive leaflet.

In English, we listened to each students presentation on the Holocaust as well as roleplaying certain parts of the text to help us understand the characters.

We ended our week by visiting the FS1 – Year classes Transport museum which they put together for their exit point.
