Languages of the fortnight!
As part of our languages of the fortnight learning KS3 have been taking part in themed days based around each country we have been learning about.This was a fantastic opportunity for the students to work and interact with their peers across the Key Stage and take part in different activities throughout the day.
While we were learning Greek, Eagle Heron and Woodpecker class took part in a Greek day. The students made their own Greek clay pot. We also practiced our cooking skills and made Tiropitakia (feta cheese triangles) and even learnt about traditional Greek clothing. We got to dress up in togas and get transported to Greece with a little help from the green screen!
KS3 then started to learn Japanese. Eagle, Swan and Heron class took part in a Japanese themed day. The students dressed up in traditional Japanese clothing and made their own Oni or Geisha masks. We even made our very own sushi, the students did an amazing job making their sushi and they were all brave enough to try it!
In RE this term we have been learning about what charity is. We decided to make some charity shoe boxes and selected different items we wanted to put in each box. At the end of the term we were lucky enough to visit a local church and gave our shoe boxes away. We learnt that our shoe boxes would be given out to homeless people around Bristol and Bath over the Christmas period.
As part of Dental Hygiene week Eagle class visited our local dental hospital. We looked at the various pieces of equipment and we sat in the dentist’s chair. We were all very brave and we even had a go at a practice run with the equipment.
In Geography we have been learning about the different features of a beach and we brought the beach to Eagle class!
We have also been looking at and exploring different animals that live at the beach. At the end out our beach topic we worked together with Swan class to experience activities that we do at the beach and how to keep safe.
