Over the past fortnight, we have been learning about hurricanes as part of our work on "USA." We learnt about how hurricanes form, read and wrote poems based on hurricanes and viewed online footage of both hurricane Harvey and hurricane Irma as they made landfall in Texas, Louisiana and Florida. Today, we looked at newspaper reports detailing the aftermath of hurricane Irma in Florida and selected key information to explain the numerous problems that this state now faces. We had the tricky task of prioritizing the issues with a talk partner and deciding which problems should be tackled first. Some fascinating discussions took place with some excellent reasons and opinions being shared in the written task which followed. I was very impressed with the standard shown throughout this activity - well done and keep up the great work!
Here are Cavan & Steven, Roxan, Erin & Callum and Abbie & Julia reading and selecting relevant information from the newspaper article to use in their discussions:

P7 combined their ICT and art skills to create digital split self portraits. A digital photo was taken, cropped and resized and then cut in half. Students then had the task of drawing in their features to create a full picture. The pictures make a striking display on the key stage 2 stairwell. Thank you to Mrs. Mack and Mrs. Allen for sharing their skills with the art part of this activity.
Holly, Dan and some other P7 students as you have never seen them before!
