What's been happening in 8JJ this week?

13th November 2015

In year 8 history we have been learning about the English Civil War. In weeks one and two we studied many sources to find out whether King Charles I was a good or bad King. This week we have been doing some drama, acting out the events that led up to the first civil war (1642-1649). In two teams we played the role of narrator, King Charles I, Princess Henrietta Marie and members of Parliament. We had great fun getting into character and now know fully about the events that occurred during this time.

In year 8 science we have been studying the topic of 'Water' This term.We have been learning about how water is treated, what makes a solution and what makes a mixture. Having learnt about filtration in class, this week we faced 'Operation Survival' and made our very own water filters out of plastic bottles, cotton wool, sand and stones. We then put muddy water through our filters to test whose would work the best. The competition was a tie with Brandon and Jack, Tyler and Dante.
