Welcome back to School
It is great to be back at school and we have enjoyed hearing all about the children ́s adventures over the holiday period. A warm welcome to all the new families who have joined this term across the school. Their new “class buddies” have taken pride in showing them around and helping them during this first week.
Each term we have a charity focus and this term our charity is Save The Med (originally Ondine Association). Over the past years we have worked with this organisation to develop our pupils knowledge about environmental issues - particularly in and around Mallorca. At the end of the term we will be holding a Science Week with an environmental focus which will culminate in a local beach clean. Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved with our Science week or raising awareness and funds for our focus charity.
A reminder that children must be in the correct school uniform at all times. Our Director of Sports Mr Fitzpatrick has been developing a lovely new sports kit for BIC which we will reveal details of shortly.
Next week on Friday the Spanish team will be celebrating the festival of Sant Antoni so remember all children can bring in a toy animal to be given luck and protection!
All the best,
Nursery Starfish Class
Firstly, I hope all of you have enjoyed your holidays! In Nursery Starfish class we have gotten straight back in, working hard on our letter recognition and formation. The children are starting to link sounds with things and practise pointing them out throughout the day, wherever we go. Did you know all Starfish are now also holding their pencils the correct way almost all the time!. We have also been very excited to welcoming Isla into our class.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Reception Seahorse Class
What a great week back! The children were very excited to receive their very own golden ticket on their return to school this week. This ticket will take them on a trip around our planet and beyond this term for our new topic “Globtrotters”
We have started planning where we would like to go, it seems that The North Pole is the first place they would like to visit.
Year 1 Seals Class
We have had a very busy week this week! We have started our new topic of Human Body and so this week we have been learning a new sense each day. We talked about our sight and what it would be like to be blind. We did a smelling test. Smelling various foods and products and trying to describe and guess them. And then we did a taste test. We tried 4 foods and introduced words like ‘sour’ and ‘savory’. I think chocolate was the most popular.
Year 3 Dolphins Class
The Dolphins have started this awesome new year with a bang! We have shared the following books ‘Squirrel's New Year Resolution’ and ‘ Grace for President’ to talk about about our goals and targets for 2020. It was lovely to see the children setting themselves resolutions but also how they can help others too.
Just a little selection;
“I want to make my sister laugh”
“ Spend more time with my family and friends.”
“Don't forget to say goodnight to my mum and dad and to solve problems if I fight or argue”
“To learn more things”
“Do more wow words in my writing”
Spanish Class with Ms Maria
La vuelta al cole ha sido muy divertida y emocionante, ya que en español hemos compartido nuestras experiencias de la Navidad y los regalitos que nos han traído los reyes magos. Además de eso, hemos empezado los nuevos proyectos que llevaremos a cabo durante este segundo trimestre. Los niños y niñas de Starfish se van a dar la vuelta al mundo y para eso hemos hecho esta original portada con nuestras fotos y una maleta donde nos llevamos todo lo necesario. ¡Buen viaje!
Spanish Class with Ms Campos
Esta semana con mis alumnos de delfines, medusas, ballenas y tiburones nos hemos estado preparando para entrar bien en el nuevo año. Hemos dado un repaso a todo el 2019, viendo lo que más nos ha gustado y lo que menos y hemos hecho nuestros propósitos de enmienda para el 2020. Veremos lo que nos depara este año, muchos de ellos quieren aprender español, ¿acabarán el año hablando más español? Seguro que si, todo es proponérselo.
