Year 8 News – 22 February 2024


This is a snapshot of what Year 8s are doing in the varied subjects STEAM, Health and Physical Education and French this week.

Please read the important Year 8 Camp reminder below.

STEAM: Students are busily working towards their Engineering Design Project, where they are designing and testing wind turbine blades to use with the STLR kits. They have been learning about renewable energy and the advantages and disadvantages of the many different energy types.

: In Health classes, students are learning about the different types of illicit drugs and the dangers associated with them. Students will also discuss risk reduction and how different types of drugs can affect the body over the short and long term.
In Physical Education, classes are focused on developing the key skills of T-ball, softball and badminton, before applying them to gameplay situations.

: Students continue to increase their French vocabulary in our chapter on Les Animaux – Animals! They are learning how to structure some basic sentences in French by describing some of their favourite animals, as well as improving their French reading and listening skills.
