Year 9 students have been learning about their cultures and what makes up their culture in social studies. They have spent time this term working in groups with students who share the same cultural backgrounds.
They were asked to research key aspects of what makes up their culture, and then to create a Google slideshow as a group. They presented it to their class with any traditional food, objects or items that they wished to bring in to add to their presentations. They also shared their work on their blogs and commented on other students blogs about what they enjoyed about their presentations and what they have learned. We have a beautiful array of cultures at Hornby High School and it was wonderful to learn from each other and celebrate our diversity.
