Students and teachers returned this Wednesday looking refreshed and raring to go for Term 3 after a relaxing and restful Spring Break. There are lots of events planned for this term including: Shared Learning (11th of May), Year 3 Sleepover, Maths Day, Summer Concert, transition meetings, parent workshops and reports at the end of this term.
The start of a new term is full of excitement, awe and wonder for students as they are introduced to new topics and ask questions they would like to find the answers to during the new unit of study. Our English National Curriculum for English, maths and Science together with the International Primary Curriculum information for Term 3 has been sent out this week and as always, if you have any questions regarding this please do not hesitate to get in touch with your class teacher or the Primary office.
Integrity, is our focus for this half term and the children have been set their new Global Challenges for Global Citizenship, please look out on the blog and encourage your children to participate. You will find these challenges on the year group blog page.
There were pirates galore in F1/2 and F2 this morning as the children started their new topic of ‘Treasure’. The children had swords, hooks, eye patches and looked pretty fierce; thankfully there were lots of smiles and fun being had too.
Year 2 Entry Point
Mr. Webb and I welcomed some famous faces from the past this morning on the gate as Year 2 dressed up for the start of their new topic. The children spent time at home and in class researching their famous person and prepared a short presentation to teach the other children about why they were famous. Year 2 had an enormous range of famous people visiting them, from famous scientists and presidents to fashion designers and Egyptian Queens! They are looking forward to learning about some of them in more detail over the coming term.
Super Cycling Man
This Thursday Super Cycling Man cycled into 3 different Phase Assemblies to share his Super Cycling Man’s Super High 5 ways to achieve his #wecanallbeheroes message and inspired our students to never give up, to go for their dreams, be kind, help the environment and to look after their health. There was a quiz after his talk and some children who had been listening carefully won a wristband. These were also available to buy from Ms. Fitzpatrick and the money raised goes towards the Parkinson’s Charity that Super Cycling Man is aiming to raise 1 million pounds for.
Super Cycling Man also shared his dream with us…to cycle around the world, visiting all seven continents whilst dressed as a Superhero! The children were amazed to learn that he set off on his journey 2 years and 325 days ago – which is longer than some of our F1 children have been alive! He has cycled 41,102 kilometers so far from London to Hanoi and has visited 27 countries. Super Cycling Man is very adventurous. He told us he was nearly frozen when cycling over the mountains in Georgia during the winter. He also showed us a photo of him camping by the side of the Ho Chi Minh highway. We wish Super Cycling Man all the best for the rest of his journey. If you would like to find out more, ask Super Cycling Man a question or just see where he is next you can do so here http://supercyclingman.com/ .
We wish all the best to our Primary Fobisia Team who set off early tomorrow for the U11 tournament. Football, swimming, athletics and T-ball will fill the next for days for them. They have worked incredibly hard since the beginning of the year and we wish them all the best.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,
Ms Rebecca Carroll, Head of Primary
