Viva España 2016: Day 3

May the Fourth be with you!

 

Unbelievably we are now at the ‘Hump Day’: three-quarters of the way through our time in Barcelona.  Time is passing extremely quickly, due to a combination of being busy each day, the lovely weather (22C again today!) and sheer enjoyment.  Everyone is putting a lot into their time here and as a result, getting a lot out of it as well.

 

Viva España 2016: Day 2

Our tired Prep 6 children are now curled up in bed after a long and busy day.  We’ve been up since 7am and after leaving around 10am, didn’t get back to our accommodation until 9:30pm.  The children have had lots to see throughout the day and begun to gain an appreciation of what it’s like to be a tourist in a foreign country.

A rather belated but warm welcome back to school to all children, staff and parents after the Easter break.

 

Well, maybe not so ‘warm’ as the country is currently experiencing winter-like weather conditions! We have a really talented 1st XI cricket team this year who are itching to get to grips with the fixture list - let’s hope our interesting climate quickly turns into Summer!

Just the other day I was in Prep 5W’s classroom for their English lesson on the subject of ‘Relative Clauses’ (nothing to do with Santa’s family!). I couldn’t remember being taught this when I was at school and I was amazed at how successfully the children got to grips with it.

So I was pleased when I saw the quiz below in the education press and could confidently answer Q4. (Actually I got most of the other answers right as well, but I’m sure that’s only because I know what’s going on in our classrooms, rather than  from my own education, which specialised in Science).
