Dear Parents,

From assemblies to school trips, it has been a fantastic week at BIC Sant Agustí.

Year 4 presented an amazing assembly to the parents and whole school on Wednesday. Their Egyptian costumes were fantastic and we loved their singing and dancing.

Year 1 and 2 went on a trip to the Joan Miro Art Gallery as we have been learning about Spanish artists this term. We hope that lots of you will be able to join us next week on Thursday after school for the Spanish Art Exhibition. It will be in the Lemon Tree Terrace at the front of the school from 3.45-5pm.

This week we have had parent evenings, which are always a great opportunity to meet with the teachers and go over your child's progress and targets for the next term.

Thanks to everyone for continuing to be punctual in the mornings. It makes such a difference to the students that they have a calm start to the day and are in lessons on time.

We are excited to let you know that we are partnering with Tineke First Aid Training to offer a one day Certified Paediatric First Aid course. This will be on May 20th at our school. Please register early to guarantee a place. The cost for the day is €95 which includes certification, a handbook and refreshments. Click here for more information.

Please join us at Cala Major beach this Sunday from 12pm for our Community Beach Clean. As you know we are dedicated to educating our students about taking care of our planet and our local environment. Many of our families use Cala Major beach as do we for Sports and other lessons. We are lucky to have such natural beauty on our doorstep. We challenge you to bring a single-use plastic free picnic to show the children that it is possible! Please remember to bring gloves. The meeting point will be outside Kokomo cafe. See you there!

Warm regards,

Lowri Millar

Nursery Starfish Class

In Nursery one of our week's focus has been P.D. (physical development).

For Sports, we had our own football session with Coach Rob and his fantastic team. The children from Starfish and Seahorses were really happy to use the “big playground” (as they call it) and so excited to have football coaches to learn from. We all had a great time playing lots of games and learning some football techniques.

We have also been working on our fine motor skills by playing with beads, stamping and painting with different resources. The children have really enjoyed using animal stamps to decorate their own ‘garden card’ as part of our new ‘Spring is here!’ topic.

Reception Seahorse Class

‘Spring is here’ in the Seahorse class and we have begun to find out about the changes that happen all around us at this time of the year. We listened to the story ‘The Tiny Seed’ by Eric Carle and talked about all things that plants need in order to grow and be healthy. We have been planting, growing and observing our own cress seeds in class. We also had fun playing a game called 'let me grow' on the computers.

A big thank you to Rut’s mummy who came to speak with us about her job and the importance of sharing and talking about our feelings when we feel sad or scared; as it can can help us to feel much better.

Year 1 Seals Class

In Seals class this week we have been continuing our focus on plants and growing. We have been learning how to label the different parts of plants and what function they have. We have also been getting into some creative writing, planning a story about Trees and plants.

We have been working hard in Maths too, adding 3 numbers together using our Number Bonds to 10.

Year 4 Jellyfish Class

As the Spanish Art Exhibition is taking place next week, we have been looking into the life and works of Antoni Gaudì. The Jellyfish have been inspired by his mosaic technique and use of swirling curves to represent nature. For the Exhibition, the Jellyfish have prepared self portraits and framed them in Gaudì style mosaic.

Year 5 Whales & Year 6 Sharks Class

We have been taking our learning outdoors as much as possible in this nice weather. We have had whole Maths lessons outside and very much enjoyed learning new volleyball skills with our professional beach volleyball player coaching us. We are looking forward to taking our skills to the beach very soon.

Year 5 have been to space! We performed a spacewalk where we had to assemble parts of a spacecraft. We also learned about the history of space travel and took a tour of the International Space Station. Year 6 have finished reading Kensuke’s Kingdom and were surprised by its emotional ending.

Apr 5 Y56

Spanish

In the beginners class we have been working around World Book Day. Last week Miss Campos introduced the most famous character in Spanish literacy and the pupils created their own comic based on the crazy Don Quijote! The result was amazing, as you can read on the display between first and second floor.

The advanced group has also worked on Don Quijote learning about the main characters and drawing these wonderful pictures of them.

Sa jaia Corema ja torna a ser aquí!

In Catalan lessons the students have been learning about Jaia Corema and her story.

We are very lucky to have her at school! She comes every week and the children take one leg off from the seven she has. Every leg represents the weeks left for Easter and she just has 3 left now! We are counting and wondering who will be the one chosen to take a leg off this week!
