Year 8 have returned after the summer break with plenty of enthusiasm for their science work. We spent our first lesson back recapping on some of the science knowledge that was learnt during Year 7.
Each class member produced a mind map to show their knowledge. All the major topics that we studied in the previous year were covered. We held a brief class discussion to share our knowledge with our friends.
The next task was to prepare for the year ahead with a front cover design for our science books. The pupils were given a free choice from the many science related pictures that were available.
Our serious science learning will start during the second week of the term. Our first topic will be to look in detail at some of the diseases that humans might suffer from, and how we can help to prevent these.
