10C Stop Motion

In art, we have explored using stop motion. We have made short animations where our names, spellings and drawings are realised.

Until next time.

10C Stone Age Doctors

In history, we have been learning about prehistoric medical practices. In the Stone Age, the marvels of medicine included amputation, using splints, sewing wounds with bone needles and, everyone’s favourite, trapanning. We decided to try a couple of these medical wonders in the classroom. First we looked at making splints to help support broken bones….

We then tried trapanning, the art of shaving away part of the skull to show the brain. We practised by filing away the skin of potatoes…

 

We then tried our skills on eggs…

We only had one accident…

Until next time.

10C Zoolab

Today, Zoolab visited the school. We examined the different animals that Rob had brought into school…

Until next time.

Military Fitness- Hiking

On Friday, the military fitness group joined some of the CHAD year 11s to go hiking up the Auckland Way. We walked from school to the near Binchester. We walked four miles in under two hours…

We deserved our weekend break. Until next time.

10C Modern Art Masterpiece

We have used the altered portrait images from our art lessons to make this display…

Until next time.

10C Properties of materials

In science, we have been exploring conductivity and magnetism, with Miss McReynolds. First, we looked at which materials conduct electricity. We made a test circuit and tested a selection of materials to see if they were conductors or insulators. We then explored the properties of magnets and looked at their interactions with different materials…

Some of us even made a working electromagnet…

Until next time.

10C Felt

In design technology we have explored how to make felt. After we watched a video explaining the process, we followed instructions on how to make felt using wool pieces…

Keep your eyes on the blog to watch our efforts. Until next time.

10C Science- Materials

Miss McReynolds has been teaching us science. We have been learning about materials and their properties. Today, we looked at waterproof materials. We answered the age old question of “How to keep Chicken dry.”

We covered a drawing of a chicken with different materials and commented on whether they are waterproof or not…

We then looked at whether objects sink or float, and why. We made predictions about whether the object will sink or float, before we tested them…

Until next time.

10C Pita Pizza

In our life skill sessions, some of us learned how to make pita pizzas, safely and hygienically.

First we washed our hands…

We then prepared the ingredients…

We then added the ingredients to the pita base…

We baked them in the oven…

And ate them at the table…

Someone was lucky enough to do the washing up…

Until next time.

10C Altering Images

In art we explored how you can alter images using special software on an iPad. First we took images of ourselves. We then used the Deep Art Effects app to alter the images. Here are some of our efforts…

Until next time.
