Year 8 English

March 19th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in News - (0 Comments)

In English Year 8 have been studying the poetry of World War 1. We have looked at a range of poems in class through the mediums of discussion, storyboarding and drama. Students have been able to choose their favourite poem to complete their end of unit assessment on. The class have been divided in to ‘apples’ ‘pears’ and ‘bananas’ tables depending on the skills they need to focus on to improve their work. Mrs Read has been in supporting the class which has been a fantastic help.

Marbling techniques

Lots of fun was had in Year 7 textiles on Friday morning. The children were learning marbling techniques with Mrs Grigg. Year 7 had lots of fun and made a lot of mess but created some really wonderful results.

Slime investigations!

Year 11 were studying the Properties of Polymers last week and made slime (with food colouring added). This involved warming PVA glue, adding borax solution drop by drop and stirring well. The glue becomes ‘slimy’ as the borax makes the long polymer chains in the glue link together to form a jelly-like substance. Some of the students made their slime into balls and dropped them on white tiles to see how well they bounce. Great work Year 11.

Exploring Exeter Cathedral

On Wednesday 6th March Year 10 Religious Studies students and Year 11 History students were accompanied by Mr Duff and Mrs Sweeney to visit Exeter Cathedral.
 
History students completed individual studies of the Cathedral exploring the many examples of Norman architecture and reflected on the role of religion in society during these times.
RS students investigated the role the Cathedral plays in the wider society and how the Cathedral is organised to aid believers in their worship.
 
All students were taken on an excellent guided tour, which gave the opportunity for individual questions to be answered. A great day was had by all!
