Invitation to Join Us on Friday 28th October

 

iہیلو – Hello

Recently we conducted a short survey and found that we have 54 countries/cultures represented in our school community. This has the potential to hugely enrich our educational experiences at school.

With this in mind we have introduced a ‘Language of the Month’ initiative in the school. The language for the month of October is Urdu.  Currently, we have 15-20 children who have some knowledge of Urdu.

October Language of the Month

This month our language of the month is Urdu. Urdu is mainly spoken in Pakistan, but it is also spoken and understood in parts of India, Bangladesh, Nepal and the Middle East. There are an estimated 100 million speakers of Urdu around the world. Urdu is written and read from right to left; the opposite of English.

Zumba classes

Our second and third classes have been enoying some taster zumba classes.  The children have really enjoyed the high energy dance moves and are looking forward to some more classes in the future.

Planting and Growing

We planted cress seeds last week in second class. With all of the warm sunshine this week, the seeds have been growing and growing. It is exciting to watch them get taller! But, we have to make sure to water them and keep them hydrated. Take a look at them below.

Capacity in Second Class

We have been learning about capacity in second class. On Friday, we had lots of fun! Mr. Wonka asked us to make him a new tasty drink, using five ingredients - 1) Bubble-making surprise, 2) Levitating lemon juice, 3) Fizzy-whizzy blueberry, 4) Berry blast and 5) Tropical fruit explosion.

The Titanic in Second Class

In second class, we have been learning about The Titanic. We have been looking at primary and secondary sources to learn more about The Titanic. We looked at statements and evidence from people on board The Titanic and nearby ships such as the  S.S. Californian to solve the mystery of who was most responsible for The Titanic's sinking. What we found out, was that a lot of people were in some way responsible. The majority of the class believed that William Murdoch, the chief officer of The Titanic, was most responsible as he reversed the engines, causing the ship to hit the iceberg at an angle instead of head on.
