In Year 9, pupils have been using Google maps to plot some earthquake and volcano events whilst studying tectonic hazards this term. Each pupil has plotted 3 different events onto the map; from historical events such as the famous AD79 eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, to recent earthquake events.
The results show some spatial patterns that help us to identify where the tectonic boundaries exist.
3 Year 11 students last week worked with Lego Education to help them produce a story using present, past and future tenses in a French booster session. The story had to be related to the 3 scenes they had created with the Lego. It was a good way to boost their creativity and motivate them to write interesting pieces using the vocabulary they have learnt and search some new words.
Meanwhile, 18 students took part in the Biology Olympiad this year and completed two gruelling 1 hour papers testing biology content from IB and university level.
Results were published last week and we’re pleased to announce that Hyun Jin Kim and Sung Joon Kim in Year 13 both received Gold medals with a number of Year 12 students highly commended for their efforts which is an excellent achievement.
