  • Old New Friends

    Published 18/12/16

    On Thursday morning, a year 2 pupil asked, 'Is it today that we are going to visit our old new friends again?' Indeed, later in the day, year 2 went to visit St George Care Home for the second time.

    This week, our children wanted to find out information about St George residents' lives in order to write short fiction stories about them using real life facts. So, this week in literacy, we prepared the questions to ask to the residents. (See questions below.)

  • Spanish iBooks: 'Los Colores'

    Published 18/12/16

    In the Spanish afterschool club, students have been inspired by Hervé Tullet's book 'Los Colores'.

    Students mixed primary colours to find out which secondary colours each combination creates. They also wrote full sentences in Spanish to help them to understand the mixing process. Finally, they took photos of their Spanish Art book 'Los Colores' and created an iBook with the 'Book Creator' app. They practised their Spanish pronunciation while they read the sentences aloud and recorded their voices. Well done young publishers! ¡Felicidades!

    You can find videos of the Spanish iBooks below:

  • Pre-prep wrote some fictional eBooks

    Published 18/12/16

    Year 2 presented their eBooks to the main characters of their stories, the residents from St George Care Home.

    During the last few weeks, they have been busy writing fiction books using information that the residents gave them about their lives. Students used the information to create fiction stories with the 'Book Creator' app.

    Children shared the books with the residents with great enthusiasm using the iPads and also handed in hard copies. They were very proud of their work; one of them said 'I love sharing my book because I know that they are going to enjoy it. They can read the book every night'. Another pupil mentioned 'writing a book for them encouraged me to do it better. I like sharing my book with others'.

    This literacy project with the care home next to our school is part of the service-learning program that Pre-prep have just started.

    Listen to the eBooks on the following videos

    When one Pre-prep teacher lost their voice last week, Year 1 pupils were thrown into a topic lesson which they themselves had to vocalise.

    They read aloud instructions from the board; closely observed visual cues and interpreted demonstrations of the topic activity. It was vital that the children worked together to ensure complete understanding of the task.

  • School work is not a dark matter at the Stephen Perse Foundation

    Published 18/12/16

    Six-year-old pupil, Zahra, at the Stephen Perse Foundation – innovators in an education dedicated to creating independent thinkers – has shown how taking learning home can be fun, as well as educational by creating a short film to investigate dark matter.

    Reading about ‘baddies’ made of dark energy in The Enigma Plot part of the Time Chronicles series inspired the inquisitive pupil to explore dark matter further. She then decided to share her findings in a short video on YouTube, made with support from her parents.

    The two-minute film begins with an introduction, in which Zahra explains: “no-one knows what exactly dark energy and dark matter are, but I made a little video to explain what I found out.”
