Dear Parents,

We are always so proud of the behaviour of our students when they go on educational visits and this week was no exception. Year 1 and 2 visited the Aquarium and during a slight delay waiting for the coach home they decided to do a mini beach clean! The work we have been doing over the years with the Save The Med team and raising awareness amongst the students is clearly working.

Thanks to Mrs Cooper and the local police for organising the bike safety training this week for Years 4-6. For some of them it was the first time they had been on a bike and it was clear that they all found the training both useful and fun.

We have been collaborating with Cineciutat in Palma to arrange a selection of children´s films to be shown in English on Saturdays. The cinema is amazing and it offers a great opportunity to enjoy quality films with your family. The selection is: The Little Prince, Zog and The Highway Rat, The Gruffalo and The Gruffalos Child. Detailed information will be sent to you this week. We hope to see you there.

  • Saturday 23rd November at 11:00am - The Little Princess – Tickets available HERE
  • Saturday 30th November at 11:00am - Zog and the Highway Rat – Tickets available HERE
  • Saturday 14th December at 11:00am - The Grufallo and the Grufallo's child (Ticket purchase coming soon)

All the best,

Lowri Millar

Nursery Starfish Class

In Nursery we have really enjoyed the start of making Christmas crafts this week. We have brought our snowflakes to life with lots of glitter, something everyone in the classroom was a big fan of! We have also made some paper chain snowman and we are looking forward to showing off some great photos of our crafts in the weeks to come! Perhaps you may have noticed at home that we have started practicing for our show?! We are all very excited about the weeks ahead! Have a great weekend everyone.

Reception Seahorse Class

A big thank you to Amaya’s mummy, who came into our class last Friday for some Autumn Art. She showed us how to use seasonal colours to create some beautiful autumnal trees. Take a look!

We have also been creating busy hedgehogs with natural items from our seasonal Investigation Station.

Year 1 Seals Class and Year 2 Turtles Class

This week, Seals and Turtles had a fantastic trip to the aquarium! We saw lots of marine life from many different parts of the world. We also took part in an educational role play session where we found out how to help a sea creature if we ever find one washed up on the beach. We would like to share this information with you:

  • Ring 112 if you find an injured sea creature. The operator will call Palma Aquarium as they have a hospital for injured sea life.
  • Keep the crowd away from the animal as it will be in distress.
  • Wet your beach towel and cover the animal.
  • Do not try and remove any netting.
  • Wait for Palma Aquarium and the police to arrive.

We finished the day with a walk to the beach where the children chose to collect plastic. We picked up over 50 pieces in just 10 minutes! Seals and Dolphins really are guardians of the sea!

Year 3 Dolphins Class

This week we have been busy learning the songs for our Winter Panto. Lots of fun guaranteed for all the family! More news on costumes and roles to follow shortly.

In Sport with Miss Campos the Dolphins have been working on spatial awareness, teamwork and following instructions. Next week we are looking forward to our trip to the Rafa Nadal Museum Experience on Tuesday the 26th November.

Year 4 Jellyfish Class

This week Jellyfish Class took part in a very exciting cycling event which taught them how to stay safe while cycling, taking note of what the different road signs mean. It was so fantastic to see their smiling faces as they whizzed around the playground on their bikes. It was lovely to see the children's confidence develop throughout the session. Fantastic teamwork and a wonderful experience all round!

Year 5 Whales Class and Year 6 Sharks Class

This week, along with Sharks class, we have been rehearsing our lines for our pantomime and practising the songs. We have been focusing on pronouncing our words and song lyrics clearly and loudly and using expression in our voices. It sounds fantastic already!

Also this week we have been working hard in pairs to finish our Viking shields, made out of ceiling foam. They look absolutely amazing.

Spanish Class with Ms Maria

En español la clase de Year 1 y Year 2 hemos acabado el tema del OTOÑO. Para finalizar hemos hecho esta fantástica manualidad. Hemos aprendido muchas cosas sobre dicha estación, entre ellas que suele llover mucho y que las hojas de los árboles se vuelven de color marrón hasta caer al suelo.

Cuando eso pasa, podemos divertirnos jugando con ellas. También hemos practicado la escritura de nuevas palabras, además de la caligrafía, ya que este año es muy importante.
