English

We're starting year 7/8 with looking at various forms of factual writing. We will move on to autobiographies, then descriptive work. Before we break for Christmas, the focus will be writing instructions.


Maths

We will end this year we'll work on enlarging shapes, further problem solving and word problems and algebra. We will also be revising work covered during the year.  


Science

We're going to look at Chemistry around us, then looking into how our lives are affected by Science.

There will also be further opportunities to investigate practically using chemicals and we'll be working on our reporting and how to write a scientific conclusion.


Across the Curriculum

Geography will look map-work and geographical skills. History after half term will focus on Medieval Britain- a brilliant unit filled with kings, battles and castles!

ICT is using excel for data management on computers.

Art will be Aboriginal painting from Australia, followed by sewing and embroidery.

In RE we're looking at and comparing Creation stories

PE is swimming (increasing speed and stamina, including tumble turns for quick changes), tennis and hockey after half term.

Chinese carries on with Miss Cao; French with Mr Kamwendo; and Music with Mr Milanzi..  



Coming Up...

Clubs are already in full swing. Secondary have their own clubs, with fitness (circuit training and exercise videos), tennis and WESM (Wildlife and Environmental Society of Malawi), along with the Swim Squad on Tuesdays.

 

We hope to be able to enter a joint team with Hillview School into the Night Gala to be held later in the term.
