Dear Parents,

For the last six weeks, our students at Sant Agustí have been learning about Spanish artists. From Gaudi to Dali, they have explored various different techniques as well as the history of each of the artists. Year 1 and 2 also visited the Joan Miro art museum which we are lucky to have on our doorstep.

Thanks to all of you for coming to wander around our outdoor BIC Art Gallery and admiring the fantastic works. A huge thanks to everyone involved for making it such a successful event.

If you would like to make a donation then all proceeds will be used to raise money for Voluntarios Kenya, a charity which our school supports each year through Ms Campos. This year Ms Campos will be going back to Kenya to work with the same orphanage as last summer. In the coming months, we will be doing several fundraising activities for this initiative, raising money so that they can do some much needed building work.

A big well done to our Reception class for their wonderful Easter assembly to parents on Wednesday. Their singing, Easter bonnets and enthusiasm was a welcome addition to the week!

We had another very successful Open Day on Thursday where we welcomed visitors to the school. It is always so lovely to hear their feedback and know that their feeling about our school is - “a warm, happy school” with “friendly and engaged students”.

A reminder that there are limited spaces for the Paediatric First Aid course for parents so if you are interested then please sign up now!

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

All the best,

Lowri Millar

Principal, BIC Sant Agustí

Nursery Starfish Class

This week the Starfish have been learning all about Spring, including decorating their own Spring hats. They have been looking at baby chicks hatching and the beans that we planted last week are also starting to grow. We were also very excited about this week's Spanish Art Exhibition. We just had to add the last details to our very artistic creations. The results are just amazing!

Reception Seahorse Class

The Seahorse class have been busy rehearsing and preparing for their ‘Spring Show’ which they performed on Wednesday this week. They all did a super job with their singing and they each designed and made their own Easter bonnet, incorporating ‘the signs of spring’ which they have been learning about. They have been fascinated watching their cress seeds grow and change across the week and have been taking good care of them. They also enjoyed working as a team to make spring playdough; taking turns to add the ingredients and knead the mixture.

Year 1 Seals Class

In Seals this we've been having an Easter filled week! We have written application forms to the Easter Bunny for when he goes on holiday. We have designed our own Easter Eggs and written Easter cards to send to our friends around the school. We were also busy making our Easter Bunny glasses! We love seeing the world in red and yellow!

Year 2 Turtles Class

Turtles class have had a great week! On Monday, the children took a trip to the local park for their English lesson. On Thursday, Turtles became paleontologists as they excavated bones, made fossils and dissected dinosaur poo to find out what different dinosaurs ate!

Year 3 Dolphins Class

This week Dolphin class have loved learning all about how people lived in the Stone Age. In Literacy, we have been reading 'The Stone Age Boy' and have written descriptive postcards home, imagining that we are stuck in the stone age! Furthermore, in Science, we have been learning all about plants and last week we planted our very own sunflower seeds. We have continued to take great care of our now sprouting sunflowers and love watching them grow.

Year 4 Jellyfish Class

This week the Jellyfish have been looking at the true story about the history of LEGO. They already knew lots of things about LEGO as we know it today, but have also found out about how LEGO has changed over the years and how it all started in Billund, Denmark in 1932.

Did you know that the word LEGO in latin means “I put together”?
