Year 7

The topic this term is the Titanic and Year 7 pupils were making electronic circuits with switches to send morse code. Some were using light bulbs to send morse code.
Continuing the creativity Year 7 pupils were making their own boats, using a variety of materials, resources, propellers and batteries. It took a lot of team work and problem solving to create boats that not floated on the water but that actually moved.

Algebra Art

 

Year 7 have been learning about algebra this week. These pentagons created a picture using 2D shapes and then wrote an algebraic equation that helped them to calculate the number of corners in their picture.

In Year 7 we have been looking at Victorians. We took a walk to the Heritage centre to look at a Victorian house and leant some interesting facts about the Ward family. We then walked through Castle park to find inspiration for our Victorian artwork.

Year 7 recently had a team building day in Crawfordsburn Country park. We were very lucky with the weather as it was the only dry day that week! We had a sandcastle building competition and  explored the visitor's centre and took a walk up to the waterfall. There were lots of tired Y7s when we got back!! 

In our second half term of Year 7, we will be looking at how money makes the world go around Some of the questions we will be looking at are:
 
Where does money come from?
 
What is currency?
 
What are the problems associated with having too much or not enough money?
 
As part of this topic, children will be given a range of financial scenarios and asked to give reasons for the choices they make. Hopefully they make the correct ones!
 
Young Enterprise will also be carrying out a 6 week programme entitled ‘Our World’.
