Check out the picture of 8A’s reporters; Seransh, Dae Hee, Sartak, Mikkel and Alex. Many thanks for their reports this week.

If you were unable to attend for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact your son/daughter's subject teachers to find out how they are doing!

Student reporters

Saransh Mehta 8A for History

In History we are studying the abolition of slavery and we are to present a project on iMovie about the abolition of slavery. Slavery was not good as human beings were not being humane and treating other humans like animals; I think that it is good that slavery was abolished but it is bad that it still exists in some parts of the world.

Mikkel Raan 8A for Art

In Art we are working on shading  different objects such as skulls, vegetation, and other natural objects. Our teacher during this topic has said, "God doesn't work in straight lines." This leads us to try to increase our accuracy by making our work include less straight lines. We are about to start a new topic, Sculptures!

Dae Hee Han 8A for English

In English we have been looking at film reviews to be able to complete our assessment which is writing our own film reviews, by looking at different types of trailer films to identify the type of genre and their generic conventions such as comedy, action, fantasy etc.

We have been making posters to gain more knowledge of analysis of different films. It helped us understand more about films.

Sodexo Lunch Card

As you know, in order for the students to purchase food in the Hub they must use a lunch card. It is essential that students use the correct system for purchasing food. Cash top-ups to the card can be made at the payment counter in the Hub. Students then hand their card to the Sodexo staff at the till to buy their food. They should hand in their card not state their card number. Please could you support the school system by ensuring that every student has their own card available for use.
