Book Buzz on the bus!

Year 7 received their free Book Buzz books today and were the first students to use the ‘Go Read Bus’.  As you can see from the photos, they were thrilled with their books and the bus.  There are a couple of finishing touches to add to the bus before its grand opening in January.  The books are provided by Book Trust for a small charge to the school who gives them to students to encourage reading for pleasure.  The students all said they were going to read the books over the Christmas break.  They said the bus was ‘cool’!

Christmas Jumper Day

Today everyone has come to school in their Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save the Children. With one week to go until we break up for Christmas, we are all feeling very festive.

Rights Respecting Schools

Today we had the second set of presentations. Everyone did really well and all the presentations were fantastic. This term we have been learning about Article 6 which recognises that children have the right to survive and develop.

11C World War 2 Rationing Recipes

In history, we have been learning about World War 2. This morning we watched a selection of videos regarding rationing. We then looked at some of the recipes that were used and copied them. We made vinegar cake, carrot cookies and chocolate potato spread. Please don’t all phone the take-away at once as they sound so appetising. Here are our final products…

We then tasted the delightful foods, after thoroughly examining them first…

Just to confirm that no one was poisoned during this activity. Until next time.

11C Aboriginal Art Work

In art, we looked at different types of aboriginal art and were inspired by their different styles of painting. First, we looked at their hand paintings and used that as inspiration for our designs…

We then looked at the different types of circle and dot paintings. We used coloured hole-punched paper to generate bubble-like images…

I hope you like our efforts. Until next time.

11C Blitz Inspired Art

In history, we have been learning about the Blitz. We watched black and white videos from the time of the events during the nights. We generated fiery backgrounds and added silhouettes of the burning buildings and German bombers. I hope you like our efforts…

Until next time.

7B Science: Variation
