Ciencias naturales en el Faro del Albir

On Friday 4th December, our Key Stage 2 classes went to the Lighthouse in Albir.  The tour had several objectives, in addition to walking and enjoy the surroundings we saw and experienced some of the concepts we have studied in our natural sciences lessons. During the walk to the lighthouse, we could see the different landscapes and the elements that compose it. We analysed the different temperatures of objects using a digital thermometer, listened to the pleasant sounds that nature offers us and made our own echoes! We also enjoyed the landscape through different types of lenses: binoculars, cameras and glasses.  It was a fun trip and everyone had a great time!

Durante el paseo hasta el faro pudimos ver los diferentes paisajes y los elementos que lo componen, experimentar las diferentes temperaturas de los objetos utilizando un termómetro digital, comprobar los sonidos agradables que nos ofrece la naturaleza y el eco, así como, contemplar el paisaje con diferentes tipos de lentes (binoculares, cámaras y gafas). Fue una excursión muy divertida donde todos lo pasamos muy bien.

¡A jugar!

Los alumnos y alumnas de Lower Primary presentaron en su asamblea de esta semana una recopilación de juegos tradicionales. Han estado estudiando en la asignatura de lengua castellana las cantinelas y retahílas infantiles populares utilizadas en los juegos. Los chicos y chicas utilizaron las clásicas retahílas para echar a suertes, cantaron diversas canciones para jugar al corro e incluso se atrevieron con juegos de saltar a la comba. Fue un excelente comienzo de viernes que hizo recordar agradables momentos de la infancia a los padres, profesores y todos los asistentes.

Delicious delights at Valor

Last week the Upper Primary class learned about how the Aztec god kulkulkan, also known as Quetzalcoatl, gave the gift of the cocoa tree to the Toltec people so they could enjoy chocolate, the drink if the Gods. So this week it only seemed fair that they visit the Valor factory in Vilajoyosa, to see how chocolate made the journey from Mexico to Europe and how it is made into the many chocolate treats we enjoy today. It was a great day out and the children enjoyed a short journey on the TRAM before heading down to the beach to collect some shells for Mrs Vaughan’s art project. Then the fun began! The children savoured the aroma of molten chocolate before indulging in trays of FREE CHOCOLATE!!! Gifts were bought for mums and dads and absent class mates, before they caught the TRAM back to school. Learning about chocolate sure is hard work, but someone has to do it!

Alien invasion

The Upper Primary class presented an alien invasion in their assembly this week through recount texts and graphics manipulation. Despite the very different levels of English in the class, every child participated by reading out alien diary entries or being interviewed about their own alien encounters. In their ICT lessons, the children had produced their own UFO hoax photographs which they presented as the news of a local alien invasion broke, before a short video clip of the children running from an advancing superior being!  Well done to the whole class for putting tons of effort into their assembly, but special thanks go to this week’s star of the week, Fernando, who’s ICT know how made the special effects of the assembly possible. Thank you Fernando and keep your eyes on the skies!

UKS3 assembly

Our assembly being the first “teacher assembly” of the academic year, we as a team (my tutor group Upper Key Stage 3 and me) decided to do an assembly on “Getting organised”. Organisational skill is a superpower n the key to success. It is a value to inculcate for steady progress. The students enacted a small play which showed how “being disorganised” makes you look. Followed by a small power point presentation of your check list to make you more organised. The assembly received a good response from the audience.

We love a cuppa!

In our Science Topic “Fighting Fit”, Year 2 are studying “Making things better”.  A long time ago people used to make medicine from herbs and other plants. Today, we made mint tea using leaves from the mint plant. In the past people would drink mint tea to settle their stomachs.

Cuida tu ortografía

En la asamblea de esta semana que realizaron los alumnos de Upper Primary nos recordaron algunas de las normas gramaticales y ortográficas que han estado estudiando durante las últimas semanas en las clase de lengua castellana. Con ejemplos y posteriormente con preguntas nos explicaron qué son los determinantes demostrativos. A ritmo de canción nos mostraron que también se pueden aprender las normas de la acentuación de forma divertida y para terminar la asamblea interpretaron una divertida comedia en la que las “malvadas” redes sociales se iban llevando letras y signos de puntuación de una conversación y tenía que intervenir la ortopolicía para recordarnos con un claro mensaje que debemos respetar y cuidar nuestra ortografía cuando hagamos uso de las redes sociales. ¡Enhorabuena Upper Primary!

Oh la la!

Miss Tex’s class used their assembly this week to discuss the ‘rumour’ that all French people are arrogant!  The children used hilarious sketches to illustrate examples of arrogance, before putting a fabulous fashion show, to demonstrate the sheer style of the French people.  Of course, Miss Tex’s assemblies would not be complete without an update of Hugo’s and Lucy’s romance, especially with Valentine’s day drawing near.  By the end of the assembly, everyone was convinced that France is full fantastic people and ready to jump on a plane straight to Paris.  C’est magnifique!
