Thanksgiving day!

As part of our international-mindedness development we celebrate some celebrations from all over the world. Today, we celebrated the American Thanksgiving…


Rainbow and Sunshine class children had a great time pretending to be turkeys and dancing to “Turkey Dance Freeze” to celebrate Thanksgiving. They also worked on a small art turkey Project and talked about different times when we say “Thank you”.

In P4 and P5 as part of our PYP Unit “Family and Friends”  and “Around the table” Rays & Dolphins and  Astronautes have been talking about the importance of being thankful for the things we have.  We have also created a turkey using our cutting and fine motor skills… We have learnt how Pilgrims travelled from England to United States of America finding there the Native Americans and the help they offered to their new friends. They look amazing!

Befana, a beautiful witch!

Rays and Dolphins, as part of the PYP Unit «Celebrations», are learning things about celebrations around the world. This week Sofia’s godmother came to school to tell them about a traditional Christmas character that brings sweets to the Italian boys and girls who have been good throughout the year.

She is a nice witch called Befana and now they know they will have to prepare a dish of pasta with tomato on December the 5th before going to bed, and how to sing her song Trullallà.

 

 

 

Halloween is here!

Dear parents, as every October 31st, we are ready to celebrate Halloween and Castanyada.

As every year when the first autumn winds arrive we are ready for one of our favourite celebrations.

This year your little ones have been introduced to the American tradition of Halloween again, trick or treat songs have filled our days and decoration has been full of skeletons, pumpkins, Jack-o’-lanterns, spiders, bats…   Happy Halloween!

Here are some of the photos.

Peace Day

«Peace  is being different, feeling good about yourself, and helping others. The world is a better place because of you! » Todd Parr

On September 21st, Rainbow class kids listened to «The Peace Book» by Todd Parr, a fantastic and simple story about the meaning of peace.

In an IB school, working together to decide Classroom Essential Agreements is one of the ways to set the tone for learning and collaboration and this is usually done at the beginning of the school year to help everyone understand shared norms and expectations.

«Peace» is a difficult concept to grasp for preschoolers but after reading the book «Hands are not for hitting» by Martine Agassi and working together on our Essential Agreements , we will make this world a more peaceful one by using our helping hands, walking feet, quiet voices and listening ears.

 

 

European Day of Languages

On September 26th, Preschoolers celebrated European Day of Languages by listening (and singing along) to this wonderful song from Global Wonders.

They also explored flags from different European countries and identified colours, shapes and patterns on the flag they chose. Our fantastic classroom assistants, Ms. Matina and Ms. Lucia also found their home countries flags.

Happy European Day of Languages!!

Feliç Diada de Sant Jordi!

Dilluns, 23 d’abril, Diada de Sant Jordi i els alumnes d’Educació Infantil hem realitzat diverses activitats per celebrar-la: hem representat el conte amb disfresses, hem participat de la llegenda amb titelles i tots junts amb els companys més grans de la Nursery, hem anat a La Garriga a veure un espectacle teatral dins del programa d’activitats «Tria Contes».

Avui, princeses, dracs, llegendes, històries, contes, llibres, roses,… han estat els elements de color junt amb els protagonistes (els nostres alumnes) que han omplert el nostre col·legi, donant un caire festiu i alegre celebrant la Diada de Sant Jordi. És així, amb premis i representacions teatrals i musicals com hem tancat la nostra Book Week.

Pares, volem compartir amb tots vosaltres aquestes imatges, desitgem que us agradin!

La Vella Quaresma

Aquest divendres ha arribat la Vella Quaresma, una senyora molt velleta amb set cames que porta un bacallà en una mà, i un cistell carregat de verdures a l’altra. Imagineu-vos què complicat deu ser caminar amb totes les cames alhora!

Hem acomiadat al Rei Carnestoltes i ara rebem a la Vella Quaresma amb 7 cames i a cada cama un missatge; arremquem una cama cada setmana, i quan quedi la darrera arribarà la  Setmana Santa.

Avui hem llegit el  primer:  “Tots al pati hem de jugar, i les joguines hem de guardar”. Li farem cas, doncs ella ens estarà observant.

 

Chinese New Year!

Rainbows, Sunshines and P3 teaching team enjoyed welcoming Xuan’s mum this morning to our classroom for a visit. She came to give us a short presentation about the story and traditions of the Chinese New Year. She explained the story about the twelve animals in the horoscope, told us this is the year of the dog and showed us pictures of  food they usually eat during the celebrations. And then she has also visited the P4 and P5 classes and she has been sharing it with our classmates: Granotes, Rays and Dolphins.

Arriba el carnestoltes!

Ahir, divendres, petits i grans esperàvem amb impaciència l’arribada del Carnestoltes. Va arribar a la balconada de l’edifici dels nostres companys de Primària, acompanyats del la Dia i el Nit, dos gegantons molt divertits ,que a partir d’ara ens acompanyaran en molts moments al llarg del curs. Amb una mica de ball i música, escoltant molt bé el que ens deien el rei i la reina del carnaval, hem près nota dels missatges esbojarrats que tenim per aquesta setmana que tot just començarà el dilluns: el missatge ens diu que haurem de portar un complement d’un animal!

Us mantindrem informats de tot allò que vagi aconteixent; comença la setmana de la disbauixa!
