Zero Hunger

p7 have been learning about Global Goals and one of them is Zero Hunger. We worked in pairs to find as many facts as possible to teach other classes about Zero Hunger.  Ali in the kitchen made two meals – Buttered Chicken Tikka Masala and Quorn Quesadilla on the 20 of November to raise awareness of international cuisine and both dishes were scrumpscious.  All the classes really enjoyed finding out about Zero Hunger in the World.

Super Scientists continue on their mission.

Tetrahedrons, Octahedrons and Dragons

We had so much fun in practical maths building nets for 3D shapes.  In the first few weeks of term we were building easier shapes such as cubes and cuboids.  Over the last two days, we have moved on to 3D shapes with triangular faces, such as tetrahedrons and octahedrons.  Today, we used our skills to build a “snap dragon” but we were disappointed to find that it didn’t actually snap!
