Weekly update

 

The Ring of Fire was the focus of our geography lesson this week (no, not the Johnny Cash song: the volatile region in the Pacific Ocean that is responsible for the majority of the Earth's volcanoes and earthquakes). We learnt about some of the most famous volcanoes in the region and plotted them on the map.

 

We have continued with our algebra focus in maths this week, writing and solving equations.

 

In English, we are getting ready to write reports about volcanoes next week, so any research done over the weekend will be very helpful with their writing! Where do they happen? Why? etc...

 

With our last hockey session next week, we had a practice tournament, with the children taking umpiring duties for the matches. Apparently, it was a challenge to be heard, but everyone did a fantastic job!

 

After studying Andy Warhol last week, this week, we have tried our own reduction printing. We are part way through our volcano prints, and both classes have really enjoyed the challenges of repeated printing!

 

We had a look at how exercise, lifestyle and drugs affect our bodies, and we did some research for a short report. 

 

Have a good weekend,

 

Mr Craig & Mrs Collidge
