A WARM WELCOME BACK FROM RIDGIE

To kick off the second term boys were welcomed by Ridgie and enjoyed a delicious cup of hot chocolate and marshmellows.

THE GRADE 7’s INVESTIGATED SEPARATION BY EVAPORATION

The Grade 7 boys were investigating separation by evaporation: A solution is mixed in such a way that the solvent and the solute mix evenly and cannot be separated by filtration (salt water). However, a solution can be separated by evaporation, which involves heating the solution until the solvent (water) evaporates and only the solute (salt) is left behind.

THE GRADE 0’s LEARNT ABOUT THINKING MAPS

The Grade 0 boys had an opportunity to draw a thinking map of their weekend news.

The Grade 7 boys listened to the grade 4 boys read to them. This exercise assisted the Grade 4 boys with improving their fluency and pace whilst reading.
