International Day - FS & Year 1

Thu, 06/12/2012 - 09:56 -- Lydia Makram

On Thursday 29th November the BSA took part in yet another successful “International Day.” At Mina site, each classroom became a country for the day and the children travelled around in their classes from one country to the next, taking part in themed activities.  When  they travelled to Australia, they painted an Australian animal using aboriginal patterns.  In Spain children learnt some Flamenco dancing moves from Ms Walsh.  The lucky children who travelled to China made Chinese hats and learnt how to write “Lucky” in Chinese, with Mrs Astbury.

VLE Workshop for FS1 Parents

A workshop was held in the IT Lab at school for parents of children in Foundation Stage 1 to introduce them to our Virtual Learning Environment.  The 40 minute session was well attended by parents and was aimed at helping them to use the VLE with their children.

The VLE was setup last year to help improve home-school communication and as a learning tool to help students with homework and assignments.  Any questions about the VLE can be sent to Mr. Astbury at school.
