A message from Mrs McBratney

Life Skills Tasks 1

Hello everyone,I hope you are all well and not spending all day inside on your computers .

I cannot stress enough the importance of daily reading, it doesn’t have to be a book it can be a comic, shopping list or a TV guide( anything you are interested in ).

Suggested spellings:the,and,a,to,said,and.

 

It would be great if you could sit down with an adult and write a few sentences about your time at home.

Suggested websites: bbc Bitesize, cbeebies,and top marks.

 Take care of each other.

This Fairtrade Fortnight, Year 8 went to the Abbey Centre to hunt for the fairtrade logo. After filling out surveys, we discovered that the Fairtrade products were hard to find and also tended to be the most expensive options. It is a shame that there aren’t more Fairtrade products in such a big shopping centre, because Fairtrade offers farmers better living conditions and better wages! Keep your eyes peeled for the logo next time you go shopping!

Yr9/8 have been working hard on their number work this morning. They added and subtracted using TU, HTU and some used carrying and decomposition. Well done guys.

Year 8 were hunting for forces at The Commons. Today, we looked for a new force... GRAVITY! Cormac found gravity on the slide (even though it was a bit slow!), and on the see saw with Philip. Darcy and Zara also tried out the spinning seesaw and had great fun! Jacob and Max gave the fireman’s pole a go - gravity brought them down to earth really quickly! Rachel and Dylan found push and pull forces on the swing, which has beautiful views across the sea. Jay used the push force to move Grace on the big round swing! Zara pushed herself, Liam and Luke around on the roundabout, using her feet and leg muscles. Chelsea used the PULL force to climb up to the top of the climbing frame- how brave! What a lovely day hunting for forces in Donaghadee!

Year 8 made salt dough. We had to measure out the ingredients and mix it all up. Very messy but very fun!!! We had sensory play - making sausage and sphere shapes. Finally, we made different animals from all around the world. We will be using these in the future to learn about habitats!

Year 8 have been learning about forces. We hunted for push, pull and twists in the outdoor gym!
