Dear Parents,

This week the school has been focusing on anti-bullying week. As a school we are proud of the relationships built between students and their respect and care towards each other. Of course, at times, guidance is needed to help our young people develop their personal and social skills and we are always there to support them.

We are delighted to let you know about our first over night stay at the Palma Aquarium for Years 4-6. This is closely linked to their Science topic of evolution and inheritance.

This year we will be collecting advent calendars on behalf of the Allen Graham charity. Their aim is to ensure that every child across the 29 children's homes here in Mallorca will receive an advent calendar to open on the 1st December. The pile is already building in the entrance so please add to it as soon as you can!

We will also be supporting the Radio One Toy Appeal by asking for donations of toys. The deadline for this is the 15th December. These will be distributed by the Salvation Army. More details to follow.

Well done to all our sailors for completing their final sailing session this Friday. They not only enjoyed themselves but have learnt so much over the last few weeks. Thanks to Calanova for their excellent instructors.

We would like to thank everyone who attended our Friends of BIC Sant Agustí meeting last Wednesday. We had a fantastic brainstorming session on how to build our BIC community. We would like to send a kind reminder that we will be hosting our next meeting on Wednesday December 11th to further organise our fantastic Sant Agustí events. More details to follow.

All the best,

Lowri Millar

Principal

Reception Seahorse Class

The Three Little Pigs are still our subject of discussion, we have been learning about alternative materials that the piglets could have used to build their houses and have also designed a new place for them to call home.

We made a fresh batch of playdough, the children decided upon the colour orange this time, we mixed lots of yellow with a little bit of red.

Our new Early Years Helpers this fortnight are Jack and Amaya. Thanks in advance guys!

Year 1 Seals Class

This week we have introduced measuring in Maths. The children started by using cubes to measure objects around the class but were so keen that we quickly moved onto tape measures! The children had a measuring challenge of finding various objects around the class and using their tapes to find how many centimetres they were.

We also started our icey scene in DT making paper mache igloos. It was a super sticky activity! We can't wait to see how they will turn out.

Year 3 Dolphins Class

Pupils in Year 3 have been working especially hard in their music lessons since the beginning of term and their music teacher, Mrs Baggaley is very proud of their commitment, enthusiasm and hard work.

They have been playing a variety of instruments, from the Boomwhackers to the glockenspiels and learning about the composer Karl Jenkins, while beautifully singing his wonderful composition, Adiemus.

We performed the song We Will Remember for Remembrance Day and we are really looking forward to rehearsing the songs for our Winter pantomime, Cinderella.

Year 5 Whales Class

This week in Art, Whales class has really enjoyed designing their own Viking shields in groups. They used their knowledge of mixing colours to create some fantastically bright colours and are now painting their designs onto their shields. As you can see from the photos, this is their work in progress.

Next week we will show you the photos of their finished products!

Year 6 Sharks Class

DNA, chromosomes and genes! We have been exploring scientific theory of evolution and looking at how DNA can be inherited and adapted. Big concepts wrapped up in small reality that we can´t even see are very difficult to get our head around! We have compared our characteristics to our parents and found out a few things that we have inherited. We are looking at different animals and how they have adapted to their environments.

Catalan Class with Ms Campos

La semana pasada empezamos el tema ‘La casa dels ratolins’ con nuestros niños y niñas de catalán del grupo 1. Así en pequeños grupos han creado una habitación con materiales reciclados y la explicación que han dado usando el catalán ha sido genial. ¡Buen trabajo!

Spanish Class with Ms Maria

Esta semana los chicos y chicas de Year 3 y Year 4 hemos estado aprendiendo diferentes trabalenguas. Nos lo hemos pasado genial memorizando nuestros favoritos y recitando a nuestros/as compañeros/as. Tantas letras juntas nos han hecho confundir y equivocarnos ha sido lo más divertido.
