In Science today, Miss Baker's Year 9 class consolidated their lessons about body systems by creating a full-scale diagram. Students were challenged to use their notes and understanding to add as many systems and organs as they could. They produced some very creative work and had a lot of fun while they were at it!
Some of our Year 8 students are currently engaging in a novel analysis with Trash by Andy Mulligan. They're loving it; it's a coming of age story about poverty and corruption within developing nations. Today we did some work on identifying the themes within the text, and the 8's successfully identified: poverty, friendship, corruption, betrayal, hope, and injustice. They engaged in some group work with the aim of closely examining the themes and interpreting the author's purpose. Very proud of the work they produced today!
Last week Ms Parolo our Associate Principal went to visit a Year 7 Science class and today the students came to see Ms Parolo and Mr Svendsen to show them their finished work on Astronomy and Earth's place in the Universe. The students were asked many questions and they knew all the correct answers.
The Green Team created a new logo to go with our new and improved shirts. All worked hard although a massive thank you to Lucy who had the final design under control and ready to go. The logo accurately represents the fantastic work The Green Team does around BSC from combating the litter issue to encouraging people to walk, ride and bus to school.
