Dear Parents,

This week there has been singing at every opportunity all around the school as classes are making their final preparations for the summer shows next week. We hope you can all make it. Please see below for details:

Wednesday 19th June at 3pm - Early Years Graduation/Summer Show at School

Thursday 20th June - Year 1-6 Rehearsal at the Bendinat Auditorium (pick up as normal from school)

Friday 21st June at 3pm- Year 1-6 Summer Show at the Bendinat Auditorium

Year 3 and 4 had a fantastic time at the Caves of Genova...just up the road from us. If you have not been it is a great day out. They came back full of fun new scientific facts and a few creepy stories!

Year 6 had a lovely day at our Sa Porassa campus experiencing what life will be like as Year 7 students. They met lots of new friends and were impressed by the teachers and facilities. We will miss them but are happy to see them off on their new adventure.

The last week of term will be a Transition Week where students will have time to spend with their new teachers and ask any questions about what moving up to the new year group will be like. We are lucky that we have such great staff at BIC and this year none of them will be leaving so your children will come back in September with a school full of familiar faces!

From Sant Agustí, we wish you a lovely weekend and we look forward to a week of singing and performing!

Nursery Starfish Class

In Starfish class we are still working on our topic `Under the sea´. We’ve been reading the book ‘Duffy’s lucky escape’ in which a sea turtle gets sick for eating a plastic bag. The children were really concerned when they heard about the plastic pollution and the bad consequences for all the sea animals!

At Sports we had our favourite football coaches that came to run a training session with us. We all had a great time and we could already see great emerging talents. We are also getting ready for our lovely Summer Show next week. We might have been also involved in a little surprise to give our daddies for this Sunday.

Reception Seahorse Class

Seahorse class have been busy preparing some special gifts to give to their daddies on Sunday for Father's Day. They have enjoyed talking about all the fun things they love to do with their daddies. They have continued to find out about ‘Summertime and the Seaside’, making shell collages and they had a great time playing an interactive sandcastle game on the computers.

Year 1 Seals Class

This week in Seals we have been focusing on our maths and the early stages of Multiplication. We have been learning about arrays and how to group objects using columns and rows to make counting easier.

The children have been busy learning our new song for the summer show and getting used to having an umbrella as a prop!

Year 2 Turtles Class

Turtles were so excited to have Miss Charlotte back on Monday. The whole class have been so caring this week, checking their plants every morning to see if they have grown. A few have started to sprout and we are excited to see what they look like next week. We have been working hard on our Summer Show songs. We can’t wait to show everybody!

Year 3 Dolphins Class

This week, Dolphin Class and Jellyfish Class went on an exciting adventure to the Caves of Genova. We were blown away by how awesome and beautiful they were. Alex, our tour guide, told us lots of interesting information about the history of the caves and how the stalactites were formed, we were fascinated. After our exploration, we sat down and had a delicious healthy snack in the lovely restaurant, lucky us!

Year 4 Jellyfish Class

This week Year 3 and 4 enjoyed a morning out at Genova caves. It all started with a brisk walk and on arrival the children had the opportunity to have a healthy snack on the restaurant terrace. After that they watched a short video about the history and discovery of the caves. Our tour guide was called Alex and he took us around the cave and gave us lots of fun facts:

  • A stalactite is formed by precipitation of minerals from water which drips through the cave ceiling.
  • A stalagmite is a mound of mineral deposits of water dripping on the floor of the cave. It grows in an upward direction.
  • When a stalagmite touches a stalactite, then a column is made.

Year 5 Whales Class

Year 5 have had a great week starting off with a fantastic art lesson from one of our Year 6s. She taught them how to use guidelines to create a face and how to change features to give expression. We also were able to have one of our classmates, who we have been missing, on Skype during the lesson, making it a very inclusive time! We have been making board games to help us practice multiplying and dividing. It has been great practice playing each others games. We are gearing up for the Summer Show - we can't wait to share our songs and performances with you!

Year 6 Sharks Class

We’ve had another fun-filled, busy week in Year 6! We started the week with our exciting day at Sa Porrassa for Transition Day which was really enjoyable. The children loved testing strips of magnesium to see if it caused a chemical or a physical reaction in Science, as well as exploding jelly babies! They acted out a play in groups using props in English and took part in some team building activities in their new form groups.

Marcel gave the day a very high score of 9.8 out of 10 in the evaluation and the whole class now feel more confident and reassured about starting secondary school in September.

We have also been rehearsing for the summer show and have had fun learning some dance moves to go with the songs, as well as practising for our graduation assembly.

Spanish Class with Miss Campos

In Spanish beginners class, Year 5 and 6 have been playing `kahoot´, an online quiz game, where they add points depending on how fast their answer is as well as the correct answers. We reviewed all the topics taught during the year. They enjoyed it very much and were amazing with their answers!

Español con Miss Maria

En español con Miss Maria los niños y niñas de year 3&4 han estado escribiendo sus propias adivinanzas y compartiéndolas con sus compañeros/as. Lo hemos pasado genial y han sido muy creativos e ingeniosos.
