Fondation Pierre Gianadda

Year 5 and 6 went on a visit to an art museum (Fondation Pierre Gianadda) where there were many amazing art pieces. The guide told them about the beautiful French Impressionist paintings by famous artists such as Auguste Renoir, Paul Gaugin, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne.  The day was sunny so the students enjoyed a picnic and then took time to sketch many of the pieces in the sculpture garden.  Finally, it was a real treat for the students to visit the wooden models of the inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci.  It was a beautiful day where the art truly made an impression on the students.  They were so excited to talk about the art on the way back in the bus. What a pleasure!

Fire drill

This week we are happy to see that the sun has returned to the school! It has been a very cold month of May and we still have some snow. This week the warmer weather has returned and the students are able to spend time playing outside. It is also our live fire drill practice so the warmer weather is very helpful!

Happy Mothers Day

In our taught curriculum, as well as in assemblies and extra-curricular activities, we celebrate special days as well as local customs and traditions whenever we can. Sunday May 12th is when Mothers' Day is celebrated in Switzerland. In Art class, while developing their creative skills, the students in the Mini classes completed a project relating to Mothers' Day. They thoroughly enjoyed their work and are proud to present the results of their efforts. Happy Mothers Day!

Reception Class visit the Train Station

The Reception Class have a new student!

His name is Theo Bear and he arrived from Norway last week and will stay with us for the rest of the term. He is really interested in transport and likes to travel and see new places so we decided to take him on a little train trip to Barboleuse. Firstly we had to go to the train station to buy him a ticket and whilst we were there we spoke to the Station Master about how trains and train stations work and what different jobs people do at the train station. It was great! Then we took Theo on the train to Barboleuse where we had delicious cake and played on the playground.

Theo was very well behaved but we did have to rescue him after we left him behind in the toilets at the cafe! Keep looking out for future posts about Theo’s adventures with the Reception children at La Garenne!
