Caritas Fundraising Appeal

As part of the RE module, ‘Solidarity and the Common Good,’ Classes 9 and 10 have been working hard to organise a fundraising event to raise money for Caritas. Caritas is an organisation that works hard to help rebuild the lives of people who face many challenges and hardships.

Below is a video appeal to help raise awareness about these challenges and to advertise our fundraising event, ‘Crazy Hair Day,’ which will take place on Friday 1st July. The children used the app Spark Video to bring their research to life. Please watch the video to find out more information.

Marvellous Meteorologists!

This half term in Computing, Class 9 have been learning how to collect weather data. We identified different aspects of weather and the tools used to measure them. We then collated weather data for Salford over a 24 hour period using Microsoft Excel. Following this, we studied weather broadcasts. Using the ‘Green Screen’ app, we were able to produce our own weather reports. Here is just one example of the fantastic broadcasts produced.

Personification Poetry

Over the past few weeks in Geography, Class 9 have been learning about ‘What makes the earth angry?’ This has included the study of tectonic plates, earthquakes and volcanoes. To finish the topic, the children collectively wrote a personification poem about a volcano. The children chose a Hydra (a mythical beast) to represent the magma’s rise to the surface of the earth’s crust. The poem has been edited for the below animation which was put together using iMovie.
