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!
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!
In ECU3 the children all came back to school after the Christmas holiday, happy and ready to start work. This term they are going to learn three new ’tricky words’ every week, this week we learnt I, the and he!
The children have been learning about stories from other cultures. We read Handa’s Surprise and enjoyed trying to carry things on our head like Handa does!
This week we have started to learn about describing imaginary worlds in literacy (English). Below you can see a wonderful effort made by Ricky in year 4. Children have also been learning about Henry VIII and his 6 sorry wives… some might say he ruined their lives!
Imaginary world by Ricky
The snow in Narnia is white and soft like a cloud. I can see a tall lamp post, which is as dark as a black hole in space. I can hear the powerful wind in my ears like a tornado. I smell the freezing wonderland against my face. The snowflakes taste like magical water. I´m in a marvellous land, somewhere I have never been before. I am feeling nervous about this. Is this worse than when the Titanic sank?

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.

A Child Hotdog is a snack for teachers to eat during playtime. It can be served with child blood ketchup or ear wax mustard.

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.
