Year 6 Trip to Benicassim
Year 6 enjoyed a fantastic residential trip to Benicassim this month.
During the visit, they managed an exhilerating mountain hike at "El Mirador del Oropesa del Mar" and passed through the tunnel "Via Verde", alongside the coastal mountain path with sea views. This was followed by a refreshing dip in the sea at this small cove.
The pupils also had a magical experience at the Museo De las Ciencias. They saw chicks hatching and found out how much water was in our bodies. Next stop was the Oceanographic Museum in Valencia, and a relaxing boat ride through underground caves. We saw spectacular stalagmites, stalactites and rock formations to spark the imagination.
Finally, the students enjoyed a trip to the water park, where they had lots of time to relax and enjoy themselves. What a great trip!
May Fair 2018
On 26th May we hosted our annual May Fair. As always, the event was a great success, raising a fantastic amount of money for our four charities: Amigos de Nyumbani, APAMA Alcobendas, Fundación Juegaterapia and Bomberos Ayudan. A huge thank you to everyone who took part in what was a great day!
Healthy Living Week
In mid-May, Primary students enjoyed our Healthy Living Week, where we made a special effort to enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
Firstly, we ran a Wake Up Shake Up session, in which some of our pupils did a range of exercises to get them moving! Then, some of the children from Year 1 took their learning outside. They concentrated on what they could smell, see and hear around them and had a lovely, mindful afternoon! Meanwhile, the children and staff in Reception started the day with a mile run. Finally, we enjoyed Fruity Friday, where we drank smoothies and had a KS2 Dance Off!
Glitterbugs NOT Litterbugs
This month, Mr. Tamblyn has been holding assemblies in KS1 on how Litterbugs harm our environment. The children were encouraged to make sure their families and friends throw all their litter into a bin when they are enjoying the Sierra de Madrid and to be Glitterbugs NOT Litterbugs.
