The importance of relationships

On Friday, during our Primary Assembly, we talked about the importance of relationships. We discussed that families come in different shapes and sizes and that they protect and love us. The children enjoyed talking about why their family is special to them and what creates a `happy home`.

 
We then spent some time thinking about friendships; the qualities that make a good friend, how we can resolve issues that arise in our relationships and how friendships can change over time. The Year 5 & 6 students helped remind the students about the importance of online safety, using their fabulous IT skills to produce a slideshow and quiz.
 
Well done to our Learners of the Week; Year 1 - Benedict, Year 2 - Ella, Year 3 - Oscar, Year 4 - Rustam, Year 5 - Momo & Year 6 - Eugenia.
 
We are proud of you all!

Welcome back!

After a very long period out of school, we are happy to welcome back the students and hope that they are happy to see their friends again. We are proud of the effort they all made to work well and that the distance learning programme met their needs. With only a few weeks left and the end of term assessments on the horizon, they will have a busy few weeks ahead. We wish them the best of luck.

Welcome back!

French with Year 5 & 6

This term we are learning about recycling; looking at how to manage the different types of rubbish, which materials go in which bins. We also talked about the energy created, like the strength of the water, the wind, the sun and from humans. The students watched a video about a man in Africa who was not happy to see people leaving their old tires in the street, so he opened a workshop to give a second life to these tires. He built for example an amazing table. The students in Year 5 & 6 had to make a presentation by giving a second life to these objects that should have ended up in the bin. Liza, Nana and Sven are going to share with you some really good ideas that you can try to do at home.

People Who Help Us

Last week, the Primary Assembly was all about People Who Help Us. It was International Nurses Day on Tuesday 12th May, in recognition of this we talked about Florence Nightingale and watched a video especially recorded for us by a nurse who works for the British Army. We learnt about her role and we talked about how we can show our solidarity to the medical staff around the world by applauding them at the same time every week. We finished the assembly by doing a live Kahoot Quiz, all about People Who Help Us.
 
Well done to Kamilla (Year 1), Lisa (Year 2), Ruairidh (Year 3), Beth (Year 4), Tony (Year 5), Elizaveta (Year 6) who won the Online Learner Certificate this week.
 
Well done children, we are proud of you!

On-line cooking class!

This weekend we held our first on-line international cooking club and it was a fantastic experience for all. The students received a list of ingredients and utensils required a week earlier and on Saturday, they all met up with Paula for their cooking club. After the club, the students sent in pictures of their cakes. A great experience for all and a big thank you to the parents who were also present to help some of the students!
