Welcome back, this is a new term and we have ten weeks in it.
We are starting off with the Life Education Trust bus, we will have four sessions with Paula and it will be mainly about healthy eating, the various nutrients we need, why we need them and how we might achieve a balanced diet in our every day lives. As well later in the term we will be looking at other things that help keep us healthy – especially healthy relationships.
Some of the school are preparing for Artsplash and this will be on Monday afternoon.
We have ski camp for the Year 7 and 8 in Week 5, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Technology for Year 7 & 8 will be on Friday, except for camp week.
In religious education we will be learning about the sacraments.
In Maths we will be covering Fractions, Decimals and Percentages with some Algebra and Geometry.
We have some art – we will be painting self portraits and we also have the Abacus calendar to design and do.
Literacy will carry on as we have been doing, with everyone setting their own goals and working towards them.
The winter sports tournament will probably be on, although we have smaller numbers as the Year 6 will go with the Year 5′s. That means the Year 7 & 8 will only make one or perhaps two teams – we will see.
It’s good to see everyone back and looking well.
