We have started this new school year with some new faces at St. Peter’s School. They are all ready to make their classes enjoy themselves as they grasp the concepts which will form the basis of all their future learning.
Katie Owen is one of our new faces, our Foundation 5 teacher. She comes from the Lake District in Northern England, where it is very beautiful, but (as she says) it rains a lot. That was the reason that made her first move to Perth in Australia and later to Barcelona, a bit closer to home. And of course, that is also the reason why she is now teaching Foundation 5.
Today we spent a while in Miss Katie’s class and could see how the children enjoy their time as they learn, play and listen to exciting tales such as the one we listened to today: The Hungry Caterpillar, a perfect tale for introducing new vocabulary about animals and to help them understand how changes can bring us great surprises.
