PRIMARY NEWSLETTER - MARCH
EARLY YEARS NEWS
Children in Nursery have been busy making bread after reading the story of the Little Red Hen and have enjoyed lots of dinosaur themed activities including making dinosaur shaped biscuits.
The Zebra class has been learning the j sound and so made jam sandwiches and jelly with Jenni!
On World Oral Health Day the children in Early Years enjoyed activities relating to the importance of keeping our teeth healthy. Thank you to Dario's mum for suggesting this and for providing us with information and resources. The children learned a great deal and we will continue to celebrate this in future years.
The Easter bunny visited school and the children enjoyed eating the chocolate eggs which he left.
Year 3 and 4 pupils had a FANTASTIC time at CIDEMAT and enjoyed canoeing, paddle surfing and water skiing. After being in the sea they went in the swimming pool which was heated to 29 degrees!
Year 2 had a super day at the Loro Park and loved all the shows and riding on Kinderland. They saw the new jellyfish and two new baby gorillas!
As part of the Niñolandia Project, the two Year 5 classes participated in an activity in which the main objective is that the students organise the whole process: from planning to final execution of an activity. Year 5S did some work related to ecology which included handing out Canarian plants to local people in the Plaza de San Agustín in Los Realejos and it was a huge success. Thanks to Daniela and Hermógenes for their great collaboration, both employees of the Cabildo of Tenerife.
KEY STAGE 2 SPORTS DAY
Pupils in Years 3 to 6 enjoyed great success at this year's Sports Day, which was hosted by the Wingate
School in Cabo Blanco.
The morning consisted of various team games at which our pupils performed admirably. The Year 3 and 4 teams won the Rounders and the Rugby, whilst Year 5 and 6 drew at Hockey and went on to win the Benchball, Rounders and Rugby.
During the afternoon's Athletics events all the children tried their hardest, showed good sportsmanship and were a credit to the school.
The final event was the Tug-of-War at which we refused to be beaten!
Spirits were high on the journey home as we brought the victory cup back to the BST.
WORLD MATHS DAY
Primary children enjoyed practical maths activities, maths trails around the school and played maths games proving that maths really can be FUN!
WORLD BOOK DAY
Pupils came dressed as book characters and worked in mixed age groups to do exciting book related activities eg. making a puppet show, book making and eating beans on toast and planting seeds after reading Jack and the Beanstalk.
Pupils in the Year 4 and Reception classes enjoyed a talk about the solar system by Alfred Rosenberg González from the "Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias". They all behaved very well and asked so many questions that he couldn't finish his video. For the Year 4 children the talk reinforced and extended the work they are doing in "Conocimiento del Medio". We are very grateful that Alfred was kind enough to find the time to come.
COLLECTION FOR CÁRITAS
Once again we would like to thank the parents and students of the BST for their collaboration and generosity. The staff at Cáritas could not believe the vast amount of products we sent to them and they truly appreciate your help.
We hope you have enjoyed reading our newsletter.
