Dear Parents,

The school is full of the sounds of singing as we are in full flow with the pantomime rehearsals. It is amazing to think that next week the decorations will be up and the countdown to Christmas. We hope that many of you will join us for the first time this year with our Christmas parent lunch at school. Details will follow but the date will be Tuesday 17th December! We will be excited to welcome as many of you and enjoy a delicious Christmas menu prepared at the school

Our first ever Palma Aquarium sleepover took place this week for Year 4, 5 and 6. Excitement was high on Thursday as they arrived to school with their bags packed ready to go. We are sure they did get some sleep and know that this is an experience they will always remember.

A reminder about our charity appeals this Christmas. Thanks to all of you who have donated advent calendars. Ms Jacqui will let us know the grand total soon. Our second appeal this Christmas is for toy donations and we will start collecting these on Monday 2nd December. The toys should be for children age 0-12 (around €10) and then gift vouchers for teenagers. These will all be given to the Radio One appeal and distributed to local children's homes.

Following last Saturday's success Cineciutat will be holding another Movie Morning for all of our parents and children next Saturday 30th November at 11:00. This week's screening will be "Zog and the Highway Rat".

  • 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)

Nursery Starfish Class

In Nursery we are really enjoying getting the hang of playing with and programming our Bee-bots robots. The children love seeing where the bee-bots are off to and can hardly contain their excitement when one of them gets away! All kids have also shown us to be amazing in sharing with others, each taking their turn and helping others understand which buttons to push when. Well done Starfish class, have a great weekend!

Reception Seahorse and Year 2 Turtles Class

Turtles have been working really hard writing their own versions of Little Red Riding Hood. They decided to show their fantastic writing to Seahorses! On Wednesday afternoon, Turtles performed the story as a class and then the children were paired up to read. Turtles read their stories with enthusiasm whilst Seahorses listened beautifully to the imaginative stories. Turtles were so proud of their work and it was great to show the younger children how much progress can be made in just 2 years. Well done Turtles and Seahorses!

Year 1 Seals Class

In Seals this week we have been learning about the Inuit people who live in the Arctic. Did you know “Atelihai” means hello in Inuktitut, the Inuits native language? We also learnt that they use a dog sled to get around on the snow and ice and they carry their babies on their backs!

In Maths we have learnt about Left and Right and how to tell them apart. We had great fun in the playground using our remote controller to guide our ‘robot’ around using commands like 2 steps left, 4 steps forward, 3 steps right.

We are also busy practising our songs for the Christmas show and we have begun to learn actions. We cant wait to show you!

Year 2 Turtles Class

We have had lots of fun maths lessons this week where we have been learning all about money. We have been recognising the value of each coin and making amounts of money to buy items from the shop!

Year 3 Dolphins Class

This week has been very sporty for the dolphins. In Literacy we have been looking at non-fiction texts related to different sports and learnt new topic vocabulary. We also visited the Rafa Nadal Experience Museum and had a fun packed day out. At the museum, the children were taken on an interactive journey that gave them the opportunity to learn lots about the tennis legend Rafa Nadal. The dolphins also enjoyed the thrill and excitement of various simulators.

Year 4 Jellyfish, Year 5 Whales and Year 6 Sharks Class

It has been a very exciting week for our Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 students as they experienced the first ever Palma Aquarium sleepover! Excitement was high on Thursday as they arrived to school with their bags packed ready to go. We are sure they did get some sleep and know what this is an experience they will never forget. We are excited to share with you some pictures and more will be following soon!

Spanish Class with Ms Maria

Esta semana en la clase de español los niños y niñas de Year 5 y 6 hemos estado aprendiendo sobre Los cuentos. Ya sabemos que un cuento es una historia breve, inventada, que consta de pocos personajes y que se divide en planteamiento, nudo y desenlace. Para acabar este proyecto, hemos escrito nuestro propio cuento haciendo volar nuestra imaginación y dando lo mejor de nosotros mismos.

Spanish Class with Ms Campos

For the past few weeks in Reception class we have been working on ‘Bajo el mar’ project. It is being a lot of fun creating different creatures that live under the water. This week we have been colouring seahorses but we are not using our hands to do it... we are using our strong longs to blow the paint and create a very nice and creative art of our seahorses.
