Continents Song!

Standard

In geography we are learning about the continents of the world.  We use a song to help us learn them.  Here are the lyrics and a recording of us singing ‘We’ve got the whole world in our hands.’

‘We’ve got the whole world in our hands’ X4

‘We’ve got North and South America in our hands’

‘We’ve got Europe, Asia, Africa in our hands’

We’ve got Australia Antarctica in our hands’

We’ve got the whole world in our hands!’

Sinterklaas!

Standard

On December 6th, we celebrated ‘Sinterklaas’ day with Perrine.   Sinterklaas is Flemish for St. Nicholas’ day.  She baked cookies for everyone and explained the tradition of ‘Sinterklaus’ in Belgium.  We thoroughly enjoyed the cookies and the story-thank you Perrine!

Green Flag Launch!

Standard

Today, our school launched the green flag for transport.  To achieve the transport flag, the school community is encouraged to help the environment by travelling to school in less cars and more walking, cycling, scooting, bus and car-pooling.  The day started with ‘Park & Stride.’  All staff, parents and students gathered in the church car park and walked to school.   It is hoped this will mark the start of ‘greener’ methods of travelling to school for the purpose of the environment and also to increase physical activity levels.  In line with keeping active, each child participated in a fitness bootcamp! This was great fun as well as healthy!  Well done to all!

Innovative Paperclip Inventions!

Standard

In geography we are learning about China.  Today we were inspired by the numerous Chinese inventions to invent some of our own! Each group were presented with a common paperclip and were required to invent some new uses for the paperclip.  We had an interesting variety of inventions from a jewellery range to a compass as well as zip pulleys, a screwdriver, tweezers, an unclogging instrument, a bookmark and many more!
