Within our PYP Unit “Celebrations” we have had different parents’ collaboration, this week we have had Gleb’s parents visit to tell us about Shrovetide Carnival, a celebration to welcome Spring after the long Winter. Each day they have different activities and dolphins and rays have loved the fact that they eat many pancakes to get ready for the coming Lent.

El pasado viernes, Dolphins & Rays, hemos recibido la visita de la mamá de Lara. Ha venido en representación del SEM para explicar a los alumnos de P4 la importancia de conocer el número de emergencias «112» y, cuándo y cómo hacer uso del teléfono para poder llamar a una ambulancia en caso de emergencia.
Tras la charla han podido construir su propia ambulancia en cartón.
Papás os proponemos, que si lo deseáis, hagáis la práctica de simulación (como hemos representado hoy en clase y que seguro los Dolphins & Rays os explicaran) enseñando a vuestros hijos a: cómo desbloquear el teléfono y, la dirección de vuestro domicilio, para que os puedan ayudar en caso de emergencia.

As every year on November’s last Thursday, we have all celebrated Thanksgiving Day.
Rainbows, Frogs, Dolphins and Rays talked about how important it is to say «Thank you» when someone helps us or gives us something, then Rainbow used their fine motor skills to create a small art project to celebrate Thanksgiving, coloring a coffee filter with markers and using a water spray to mix the colors. Take a look at their lovely turkey headbands! Dancing like turkeys to the next short video and playing «Duck, duck, Turkey» in the Nursery playground was lots of fun too!
Frogs from P4 have learned a bit more about how to value the things they have and how thankful they should be for all their friends and family.
Dolphins and Rays were able to partake in a special Thanksgiving lunch in which native Americans and pilgrims had lunch together and expressed the things that they are thankful for.

We had so much fun and we loved seeing our surroundings that we share with the school and everyone!
