Here we are preparing to sing our Christmas song, Ring the Bell, to the parents.

Our third and fourth years spent January preparing to go to watch a play in English at the Amistat – “Freaky”!! We had songs and dances to learn and many worksheets to do as well. We couldn’t quite decide what our favourite song was – was it “Freak or Unique” or “Going on the Bus”!!

This month, our third years spent their time learning about the farm: the animals, the buildings and their locations. For example, where is the stable? It’s behind the yard.
March brought our spring project. The children in the Infant School learnt about honey and the first and second years about bees as well.
This is our Extra Escolar display: the little ones drew us bees and the older children did a word search and a worksheet learning different vocabulary about the different types of bees, where they live and how they work.
Here’s the link to the word search showing the vocabulary that they learnt.
It’s Easter time! Here we are colouring our Easter Bunnies. We also talked about the children’s “monas” and the figures they had on top.

The children got to smell homemade hot cross buns and learnt the famous song which goes with the cakes!
Here’s the song:
