The grade 5/6 class has been hard at work studying to circulatory system. To make this subject come alive, Mrs Guy graciously brought a specimen for examination and further exploration of this theme.
“A cow heart?!”
Many students explaimed in aww and disgust as they entered the kitchen. Some proved braver than others in their explorations, but all learned something new.
The Biology 20 class had the wonderful opportunity to do a pig dissection before heading into the holidays!
Mr Siray expertly led the students through the different organs exploring their texture and how this plays into their individual properties and functions. Apprehention from the students, in the beginning, gave way to humour and finally became studious inquiry and examination by the end of class.
Well done class!
Recently, the grade 7 science class had the opportunity of conducting a science experiment in the search of answers about pneumatic throughs!
The kitchen filled with excitement and giggles, as they proceeded to enact the experiment they had seen demonstrated for themselves. Science is a messy process, and many unforseable circumstaces arose when trying to recreate this experiment.
Thankfully, with a little guidance of Mrs. Rochford, the students were able to succesfully demostrate the displacement of liquid in the glass with the introduction of air from their straw. Well done grade 7s!
Science classes are off to a wonderful start this year. With many hands-on experiments taking place, both in class and at home, the students are internalizing new material in a fresh way!
The grades 3 to 6, in particular, are greatly enjoying their new curriculum and are eager to share their discoveries in class. Here is to a great new year of learning ahead!
