Year 9 French students have taken the place of the teacher and had to teach le passé-composé to the rest of the class. Not an easy task as it is quite a complex tense. The students had to assess their classmates and self-assess their own lesson. All did very well and some groups displayed some talent for teaching taking their task very seriously. Bravo Year 9!
Year 12′s IB chemistry students carried out the past 14th of January a practical chemistry experiment on the effects of different salts to flame color. The students collected a number of different salts and proceeded to burn them with the bunsen burners, noting how different salts produced different colored flames when burnt. This characteristic salts and its effects are used in, amongst other things, fireworks. This practical work will have helped the students with their topic “The atomic structure”
Year 8 have recently been exploring units of measurement and converting between units. Today they estimated lengths, areas, masses and capacity and then measured the various items in order to test their estimates. They will continue working on reading scales and understanding how to make good estimates. A great start to the term Year 8, well done.

Students are working on the Marketing topic of the course and currently completing a Market Research project. They have been evaluating the role of market research, qualitative and quantitative data and the advantages and
disadvantages of Primary and Secondary research. Students have also explored the various methods and techniques involved, and what kinds of businesses are likely to use them.
Recently Year 8 have decided to help a local charity as well as cleaning up the environment by collecting bottle caps to be recycled. They have worked hard at creating posters and providing collection points as well as informing students throughout the school to start collecting and bringing the bottle caps to school. We encourage you again to remember to bring your bottle caps to school and put them in the collection bottles.
