Magnificent mascots!! Everyone got crafty this week and made a shark, a bee and an orangutang (called Tim) for each of their Houses.
Happy Birthday Samuel! 🥳 We enjoyed your fabulous chocolate cake 😋
Year 9 were super on Sports Day!
This week in H.E., we made apple crumble. We used apples that had been stewed and then made the crumble for the top. After cooking it in the oven, it was left to cool down before taking home to enjoy. One of the year 9 topics this term has been bees and how important they are. To finish this topic, we painted some bees, honeycomb and a hive for a display. Also, we were really lucky as Miss Warrington brought in an actual beehive and we were able to look at it. We even found the queen bee! Well done year 9. Have a great weekend.👍😀
This week, year 9 made omelette muffins in H.E. Everyone helped to prepare them and most tried them once they were ready. They tasted great! As part of our New Zealand topic, we made ‘Poi.’ These were originally used to help train warriors but are now mostly used as toys. In art, the class have been looking at the work of Claes Oldenburg. As part of this project, everyone will be making their own 3D sculpture. We are still in the planning stage but they should look amazing!
Year 9 have had a great week. We did some more research on New Zealand. We found out lots of facts on the Hakka and all the reasons it is used. We also learned how important bees are and what the different parts of their bodies are called. In H.E. we were talking about sun safety. We now know that we should be wearing factor 30 sun cream and a hat on warm days. Today we had a beetle drive which was really good fun. Well done everyone!😀
In numeracy this week, year 9 have been working on their money skills.
Year 9 have been learning all about different types of settlements so they used everyday objects to create their own.
Well done Aidan for getting this week’s Awesome Award for being great in all lessons this week!
Hello Easter Bunny! 🐰

Congratulations 🎉 Andrew you win this week’s Awesome Award for great focus, answering questions and for being brilliant on our trip. Well done😀
We did an experiment showing the effect sugar has on our teeth. We put one egg in water and one in coke. We then left them for a few hours. The one in coke was already very discoloured. We then brushed the egg with a toothbrush and toothpaste. This showed how important it is to brush our teeth!
We have made our own movies using Stop Motion! Here are the posters to advertise them.
Awesome trip along the Maritime Mile in Belfast today. Here are year 9’s pics which they took as they walked along the docks - everything from graffiti to yachts, ships, Game of Thrones stained glass, fish, The Titanic Museum, textures, bridges, buildings, Lego, the Belfast Giants and sculptures.

Today, year 9 were learning about shapes. First we used elastic bands to form different basic shapes. Next we used an app on the iPad to draw some shape pictures. Great work!
Our science lesson this week was on magnets. Everyone had a great time finding out whether or not different objects in the classroom are magnetic.
We are having a very busy week! We have started a new topic on Japan. Year 9 researched some things that they were interested in using their iPad and found out lots of amazing facts. On Wednesday, Miss Hart brought in some beautiful brushes and ink and the class had a lesson on Japanese brush art. Everyone really enjoyed it.
Happy New Year!! It was lovely to see everyone back after our Christmas break. Yesterday Year 9 spent some time painting beautiful trees with a stained glass effect.
