Class 12 Blog
Orphans of the Tide
We have explored irreversible changes in Science. This is when a chemical reaction takes place and changes can not be undone.
It has been lovely to welcome everyone back after our Christmas break, which seems like so long ago now!
Thank you to everyone for their hard work and determination with online learning. It was a very steep learning curve for all of us and I hope we can stay in the classroom for the rest of the year ☺️
We have made Christmas stockings in DT week. We researched the history behind them before designing and testing our methods.
The Circulatory System
We finished our work on the circulatory system by collaborating to create posters to share our knowledge.
Anti Bullying Week
We have linked our English work on The Greatest Showman to Anti Bullying Week. We have explored the themes in the song 'This is Me', discussing how it shows bullying from the perspective from someone who has been bullied but has built up resilience to be proud of who they are.
As part of our work on Victorians and sideshows, we had a workshop with Lucas Jet, learning circus skills.
We have been reading The Peculiars and Wild Boy. We have made links between the texts and The Greatest Showman, they were all set in Victorian times and are about people with 'peculiarities'.
We made posters advertising for people with peculiarities to join a sideshow.
We have been reading Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell. We wrote newspaper articles about the events of chapter one and painted water colour pictures of the scene.
The Giant's Necklace
We read the Giant's Necklace by Michael Morpurgo. We wrote postcards from Cherry and then painted seascapes of the Zennor coastline.
