Mallorca Sailing Trip Y4

This week Y4 pupils spend an amazing week at Mallorca.

Day 1
We have all arrived safe and sound after a very swift and smooth flight. The children have gone for their first sailing lesson and they are looking forward to a cooking workshop and a preparatory talk about tomorrow’s exciting astronomy event. They will end the night with dinner and relaxation in their hotel rooms recharging for another action packed day tomorrow!

Day 2
The children had a very settled and restful sleep in their rooms last night . They had a busy and fun afternoon yesterday vsiting Luis Vives school, meeting the head cook Carlos, the headteacher Tony and particpating in a Crespells making workshop. As you can see from the photos they really enjoy the activity!

Today the children are off sailing this morning, this time in groups to build their team work and sailing skills whilst being suppported by a monitor in each boat.
Afterwards the group will have lunch and enjoy some much anticipated ‘pool and relaxation time’ at the hotel. Once suitably chilled, the children will get ready to participate in the exciting star gazing workshop at the observatory tonight. The children are extremely keen to learn more after the introductory talk yesterday. More to follow tomorrow!

Day 3
After a lovely, fun filled ‘pool and chill’ afternoon yesterday, the children were invited for an exclusive and interactive visit at the Royal Observatory. The children were so enthusiastic and learned a lot about constellations. They also enjoyed viewing nearby planets through various telescopes. It was very special to see the moon so close up, even observing the craters. We were also fortunate to have so many hands on experts to share their knowledge and to answer the children’s thoughtful questions.
This morning the children are participating in their final sailing session. In the afternoon we will explore the world’s only circular castle, Castel Bellver before returning to the hotel in the early evening to relax and get ready for our final day tomorrow.
Day 4
Our last day already! We enjoyed a slower paced morning that started by  celebrating Gianmaria’s birthday (organised by the children) and featured some chocolate cake for breakfast and sparklers for breakfast and lots of hugs.
Afterwards the children packed smoothly and swiftly ready to go on their walking tour of Palma. The guide shared lots of fascinating and slightly gruesome stories that many of the children enjoyed. Thereafter the children were excited to spend their money buying gifts and souvenirs. It was also a great opportunity to practise our numeracy and budgeting skills!
The only thing left to do now is enjoy the hotel pool for the final time. Congratulations to everyone on a great holiday with excellent behaviour. The group have been a pleasure to take on this trip. See you at the airport tonight!

Buddy Programme / Y5 & Y3

Four years ago the Buddy Programme was born in St Peter´s school. With the idea of promoting relationships between students and avoiding bullying, this programme runs through the SEAL lessons (Social Emotional Aspect Learning) given by Ms Rebecca Lawson.

 

Every Y5 students is paired with a Y3 student and they usually go to field trips together and share lots of activities. It’s like having a big sibling at school.

This time they all went to the “Carretera de les Aigües”. Located at the Parc Natural de Collserola allows you to see the city of Barcelona from a bird’s-eye view. It was an amazing outdoor experience with their buddies!!

A school, a world, different spaces to learn

Real life is a not limited to a closed space. School is much more than a series of classrooms and this week is the perfect example of this. We have students spread across different educational spaces: 1st of ESO just came back from La Molina….

2nd of ESO finished their week with a great performance of Oliver Twist and  are now completing and enjoying their Cross Curricular Credit in Cadaqués.

3rd of ESO is doing the same in L’Estartit.

Class 6 is exploring Carcassone and practising their French.

Nursery 2 went on their very first trip to Can Ribas.

And finally, Nursery 3 today and Foundation 4 and 5 tomorrow are holding their Sports Days both inside and outside.

There are no boundaries to learning. The world itself, with its human and cultural wealth, is the perfect space to observe, investigate, interact, make connections and get to know ourselves and others.
