It was a little chilly this afternoon, so we stayed inside to play table cricket for a change. It was good to remember the rules, and to practice our skills, but hopefully next week the sun will be shining and we can play Kwik Cricket outside again.
We have been working through the ‘Driving Along’ topic for our science entry level qualification. The topic is about speed, reaction times and car safety.
We carried out an experiment so we could practise calculating our speed.
First we measured out 20 metres and then we worked in pairs.
One of us did the activity and the other timed them using a stopwatch.
We ran, hopped, skipped, walked and did heel to toe, as quickly as we could.
We then logged our times.
We calculated our speed once we got back into the classroom and put our data into a graph.
As part of our topic on Buddhism, pupils in 7D have been learning about the significance of the lotus flower. These beautiful flowers grow from the muddiest water, and are an important symbol for Buddhist people. We tried our hand at origami to make these fantastic paper lotus flowers, and think they look great!
This term in 7D our Technology focus is Food Tech once again. This time we are investigating different ways of preparing fruit and vegetables. We started out by making a simple fruit salad, and everyone was extremely sensible when using sharp knives. We hope you enjoy it!
