Mr Boli is our writing competition which is held each year. Students can write in one of the languages they are taught in on designated themes. Entries are then judged by the languages staff. Here is a selection of photographs of the winners from the prize giving afternoon. You can see all the photographs from the afternoon by clicking here. Well done to all participants.
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!
Here’s a copy of 2011 Summer Camp video for all of you who participated last year. As you’ll be able to see, we had a great time! Enrollment for the 2012 Summer Camp is going really fast, but there’s still some time to put your kids on the list.
Remember there are two groups: the Course Summer is Fun for 1- to 5-year olds and the Sport Course, for 5- to 16-year olds.

Year 3 have been learning all about information texts and how to read them. We have learnt how to use both a glossary and an index and also about diagrams or pictures and illustrations. We have started researching on a topic of our choice using the non-fiction section of the library. We have each chosen our own topic and made notes from books that we found. The final product will be a mini non-fiction book which the children will produce. Well done Year 3 for your hard work.
It has been another great week for year 4. We have been painting our Tudor Roses, writing newspaper reports about The Battle of Bosworth and finally writing instructional text. Sophie has been a test dummy for being provided instructions by year 4 to her chair… No children were harmed during this activity. Below you can find a gruesome but strangely inspired bit of writing by Pepijn and Wouter.

Years 2 and 3 have had a visit from Floppy! He is on an International Adventure and Escaan International School is the 9th school he has visited. He came to us from Switzerland and will be traveling to Dubai next.
The children enjoyed looking through his passport and talking about the countries he has visited so far.
The students drew pictures of their favorite Floppy Moments which we made into a fabulous poster and book and we have made postcards of our drawings for Floppy to take with him to his next school.
