Coach’s eye /

Yesterday in PE we were practicing our balances. We used the Coach’s eye app to self and peer assess the balances- some groups even worked on how symmetrical they were!

Social Class Debate /

Throughout this week we have been investigating different social class statements  and facts, deciding whether we agree with them and supporting our answers. Today we have used our debating skills to argue as to which social class should have had priority to board the lifeboats.

All children have been treated as different classes this week in order to really empathise with the people who were on board The Titanic.

Are there any further opinions you wish to put forward Class 12?

Fijian fiasco! /

Today Class 12 came in to read worldwide headlines stating that Fiji was on an tsunami alert due to an earthquake. It had a magnitude of 6.9 and has struck south of Fiji in the Pacific Ocean. A tsunamiscreenshot_20170105-091602 screenshot_20170105-091816 img_0999 img_0998 img_0996 img_0995 img_0994 img_0986 img_0987 img_0989 img_0991 img_0992 img_0993 img_0985 img_0984 img_0983 img_0982 img_0981 img_0980 img_0979 img_0978 img_0977 img_0975 img_0974 img_0973 img_0967 img_0968 img_0969 img_0970 img_0971 img_0972 img_0966 img_0965 img_0964 img_0963 threat message was issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre after the quake hit. “Hazardous tsunami waves from this earthquake are possible within 300km of the epicentre along the coasts of Fiji,” it said.

We have spoken to Mr Tallant (who is in Fiji) he has reported that although highly populated areas have been evacuated, everyone seems to be ok and no tsunami has hit, although there is heavy flooding on some roads due to the rain.

He asked us to investigate how things actually float, therefore we have investigated why today.


Why do certain objects float and certain objects sink Class 12?

What else have you learnt today?

What an eggcellent day! /

Today we have been looking at how air resistance and gravity affect an object.

Mr Tallant has desperately requested our help from Fiji- he needed to know the best materials to help him land safely if an air disaster occurred with him on board a plane. (He has been sending us updates on the potential tsunami that may await him.)

We designed and investigated which material would best protect Mr Tallant using an egg to represent his body.


What did we discover class 12?

Were there any anomalies or were your predictions correct?
