Well, we repeated the warm and cool colours with different media this time and the results were much better. Well done everyone.
The story boards on “O What is that Sound?” are also finished and are quite good too. It’s an interesting poem written probably as a result of his experience in the Spanish Civil War, after which he went to America.
This week the big event is all about Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet and for whom celebrations are held all over the world – where there are Scots! In Scotland there are poetry competitions for reading in Scots – the
old dialect of English. For the first time we have tried it here and I have been surprised how well they have done it. So I’ll close with, “Lang may yer lum reek!”. (May you be prosperous for a long time.)
Today in Free Play we all enjoyed playing with the lego and the animals. We pretended to have a zoo, with a forest and a pond in it, and we also built an airplane and made it “fly” from one table to another.
Today we celebrated Rodrigo’s and Alexia’s 4th birthday. We ate lots of cake and made birthday hats. Happy birthday Alexia and Rodrigo.
This week in ECU3 we have been looking at postional language, by using a large dice with directions of where to place teddy, on the chair, beside the chair, in front of the chair etc. We had lots of fun and everyone waited while we took turns.
Year 2 have been learning about instructions in Literacy. We had great fun following the instructions to make a banana split and even better fun tasting it!
Noor and Alberto were very happy because they had received a certificate for their hard work in assembly that morning! Keep up the hard work year 2!
Today we celebrated ECU2 achievements in assembly, we sang our favorite songs about transport, e.g. The wheels on the bus, Row, row, row your boat, A sailor went to sea and Airplanes. Alvaro and Aaron received their certificates of achievement for their hard work in the class and we also congratulated Sam, Aaron, Giselle, Ian, Alexia, Alvaro, Rodrigo, Adria and Aian for completing their award charts and getting up on the award board. Well done ECU2 you all worked very hard and you also produced a wonderful assembly. Thank you!
This week in year 5 we tried our best to follow and then evaluate instructions by making salt dough. We read, measured amounts and followed each step. We put our maths skills to use by carefully measuring amounts to create dough with a good consistency. Some of us even made figurines when they dried!
This week Primary students have enjoyed singing together with ECU 2 in their Assembly. This time we celebrated the achievements of some of our Primary students. Well done everyone!

Year 9 French students have taken the place of the teacher and had to teach le passé-composé to the rest of the class. Not an easy task as it is quite a complex tense. The students had to assess their classmates and self-assess their own lesson. All did very well and some groups displayed some talent for teaching taking their task very seriously. Bravo Year 9!
Year 2 had loads of fun learning about the time with Miss Mcwilliams. We used interactive clocks to learn about o´clock and half past in Maths lessons.
