Primary News

5th Grade trip
On Thursday (3rd April) next week, 5th Grade students will be going on a field trip to San Andres and Joya de Ceren. This trip is related to the IPC Unit - Building a Village (about Settlements). The children have been learning about the reasons for the locations for ancient settlements, and they will be able to see first hand evidence of this next week. We will be taking a historian with us, will use the local guides, visit the museums and complete other tasks related to settlements at both locations.

IPC - World Cup Exit Point
It’s time to celebrate the children’s learning during our special World Cup day on April 4th, from 7:00am to 11:30am on our school PE Field. We will livestream the event so parents have the opportunity to watch their children during the event.

All children from primary will contribute to the opening ceremony parade. We will have a real Brazilian feel to it with samba music, dancing and chanting.

The main objective of the day is to decide the winners of the ABC ‘ World Cup’ football tournament. Children will have painted a t-shirt with the flag of the country they are representing and have created class flags. All primary children will take part in the tournament during the morning.

The day also provides plenty of opportunities for children to display and talk about their learning through this unit in subjects other than PE. The children’s learning in geography, history, art, music, international and social will be displayed in the Jubilee Library.

No tournament would be complete without an award ceremony. The class representing the winning country will be awarded with the World Cup trophy; we will allow them a lap of victory around the field. We will acknowledge children who have exhibited values important to our school such as of teamwork, cooperation and good sportsmanship during the tournament and congratulate all involved for working together to put on such a great World Cup tournament and celebration of our learning.

1st Grade Sleepover ( Friday 4th April)
First grade children, along with the rest of the primary school, have been learning about the World Cup in IPC and as part of the Exit Point we have planned this year’s Sleepover. We have arranged many surprises for this special night and it will allow us to continue fostering the children’s independence. The children are very enthusiastic and excited about spending the night in school and sharing this experience with their classmates. We expect all the children will participate in this fun and memorable event!
