Today we explored aboriginal culture and had a go at aboriginal dot painting. Today we painted a boomerang and explored mixing colours and different dot techniques. We hope you like our work. Next week we are putting our skills to the test and have selected Australian animals to paint.
Year 11 are working through the Creepy Crawlies topic. Over the last 2 lessons we have been exploring how microscopes are used and learned that quadrats make sampling easier when counting plants in larger areas.
In science, group 2 have been learning why we look the way we do. We used an online coin flipper to see if we had heads or tails to determine the allele of our monster. We used that information to create the monsters genotype and then it’s phenotype. We drew our monster then created a model of it to get in the Halloween spirit! We hope you like our creations. Can you spot the variations?
Last week we learned about the mythology behind mermaids and where their tale may have originated from. We used our science skills to create some mermaid eggs (although we think they would give birth to live young). This week we looked at the results.
Year 9 have been investigating the energy released from burning fuels. We looked at independent, dependent and controlled variables and the students set up their own equipment and recorded their data in a table. (RRS article 29)
