Busy term

This term has seen the students continuing to work really hard at Greenbank and developing into excellent students and lovely young people.

In maths the students have continued to learn. This term we have looked at subtraction and coordinates, which included a fun game of human battleships with Simon as the battleship.

In French the students have learnt about number and French food, which they got to try. In PE we have really enjoyed Trampolining and having our first taste of rounders. in science we have learnt about animals and how to decide what type of animals they are and how to distinguish their features.

In History the students have learnt about the history of travel and had fun inventing their own futuristic transport. The students also were brilliant in their swimming lessons and not only did they progress a lot and they had a lot of fun.
