Wellbeing Week in the Primary Section

Wellbeing is the state of being comfortable, healthy and happy. Each day this week, we set aside time at the start of the day for our students to participate in a range of activities. The children loved being grouped with children from other classes and they enjoyed moving to a different classroom each morning. We had a professional yoga teacher come into school to work with the children, they benefited from the Mini Mediatation sessions and they took time to reflect on how they are feeling and what things they can do to look after themselves.
 
The childen, when asked why they loved this week, explained; `It is fun, we get to spend time with different children and different teachers, talking and playing and connecting with eachother. There are a variety of activities, some of which I haven`t tried before. It was relaxing and I felt excited each morning.`

Alimentarium Blog

This beautiful and sunny Tuesday 1st June, the Year 3/4 class went on a trip to the Alimentarium in Vevey. They enjoyed a walk along the lakefront, playing in the park and a fantastic picnic where they ate their bespoke, hand made, triple decker sandwiches that they had prepared the day before.  

Inside the Alimentarium there were lots of great interactive displays which taught us all about where food comes from and how it gets transported around the world. 

We really enjoyed playing on the educational games and learning about how different cultures around the world eat in different ways and what different types of food were eaten throughout history.

Upstairs we learned about being Vegan, digestion and our senses.

After a quick break for an ice cream we returned to complete our workshop where we made citron confits and our own curry mix using 8 different spices! We had so much fun and can’t wait to cook our very own curry!

School Fair

Some of the Year 1 & 2 children created their own School Fair this morning in class, they participated in a range of games and activities. The children were building vocabulary and developing their understanding of story setting; the children will be reading the book Dogger, by Shirley Hughes next week. They enjoyed measuring ingredients to make cakes and finding the correct coins to pay for the games. What an exciting morning!
