February has been a busy month for the Grade 9 students here in Hanley. Many of the students have been taking part in extracurricular activities such as basketball, curling, and drama. In ELA, the Grade 9’s are looking into Love, Loyalty, and Relationships and are particularly looking at William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The students have continued to look into Ancient Civilizations in Social class, and are currently working to depict a battle between two ancient warriors. Math has the students studying Polynomials and they are looking into Music in Art class. The students have switched from I.A. to Home Ec. and vice versa. In I.A., the students are looking at the theory behind welding and in Home Ec., they are learning all about kitchen safety and measurement conversions. In Gym, the students have been playing a variety of games. That’s it for February. Enjoy the break!
