The Students from the Mencia de Mendoza Year 2 English TTO class have been working closely this half term with the Owl and Panda classes here at ISB.
With help and encouragement from their fantastic English teacher Mrs Bakker they have planned and written a story book for a younger child. The books included the younger children´s favourite hobbies, family members and their home countries. It was obvious that the Mencia de Mendoza students had spent a great deal of time and effort getting to know their younger partners!
It was lovely to see the children working so well together.
The finished books were of a very high standard and the younger children loved sharing them with their partners.
Every day we have good reasons to feel proud of our ISB children. Today was no different… this morning it brought a smile to my face that children from different classes and ages are so kind and thoughtful to one another.
This afternoon I was extremely proud of the whole of the Owl Class. What a lovely class assembly! It was lovely to hear why the children in Owl Class value their family so much.
As you know it has been a busy week with seven children joining us from the Monkey class, the children are now affectionately known as the ‘Mowls’ by the original class members. The children have been settling in well and quickly adjusting to their new routines. Their first challenge has been preparing for our class assembly! The class assembly will be on Friday 19th April at 1.45pm.
It has been based around the story of ‘Grace and Family’.
We have been looking at this book closely in Literacy.
If you would like to come and watch our class assembly we would love to see you!
Mrs Hagenaars and the Owls
Hello my lovely Owls,
I hope that you are having a lovely weekend!
I would like you to tell me all of the different modes of transport you use this week………
I traveled to work by car, I cycled on my bike to the supermarket, I travelled by train to see my friends………
How many different types of transport will you use?
Our book focus has been ‘Traction Man is Here!’ by Mini Grey.
The children acted out scenes from the book, focusing on what the characters in the book would say to each other.
It was a lot of fun and the children really enjoyed it.
L/O-To act in role. To use speech whilst in character.
We would also like to say a VERY big thank you to Lana, Nishita and Marie-Cyel’s Mums for coming in last week to help us with the work for our fantastic Traction Man display. It was really appreciated and the display looks amazing!
It is called ‘From A to B’. It focuses on transport, different localities and how we get from one location to another.
If you could travel to anywhere in the world……..
Where would you go to?
Why would you go there?
and how would you get there?
