Mike: The girls football programme has had a great start to the year. Both the year 3/4 and the year 5/6 teams played well in their respective tournaments and managed to qualify for the next rounds (which will be taking place in March and February). Furthermore, one of our year 3/4 players, Lindsey of 4euA, was named the best player of the tournament. In addition to the progress they have been making as footballers, I have been particularly happy to see the girls continue to show a high sense of sportsmanship and fair play.
A personal highlight for me was after our year 3/4 team narrowly lost their last match to the Grundschule am Amalienhof (a game that really could have gone either way) and thus just barely missed out on winning the tournament: Though our girls were somewhat disheartened, they all lined up to congratulate the other team. Then, as the tournament had ended early, we told them they could keep playing a while. And so the girls of both teams (without any of the coaches saying anything) organised new mixed teams, so that our girls were now happily playing alongside their erstwhile rivals. Needless to say, many new friendships were made that day.
Christine: ” January in the Origami Club was less about folding, and more about wizards, light sabers, and Superheros, as I broke out my old “Star Wars and Stuff” pattern collection. Our younger folders spent January busily coloring, cutting out,and constructing three dimensional models of Batman and Superman, Spiderman, Mario, Harry Potter, and from Star Wars, well, don’t get me started! It was like being in the Jedi Acadamy! I also designed three new patterns as requested by the children: Queen Elsa, Luigi, and Hermione Granger! What a great start to the year!”
Michael: In 3eub we did our research on magnets and how they function. We also started on our recycling topic.In Art we finished our Winter wonderlands and painted. Our cooking in free time was popcorn a variety including Sweet, salty and coloured pop corn.
In 3euA we finished our Bat Topic and then spent time on our Winter wonderland pictures, how to draw, colour and create our own snowfllakes. Snowflakes and drawings are to be hung up in our hall. Cooking highlight was HOT DOGS and it went over big!
In 1A I have started working with the kids on simple English skills such as numbers introductions and animals. It is going very well!
All of the 4eu A,B,C are AMAZING IN THE TYPING CLASSES! They all have been working very hard and we are also doing Reading and quizzes.
Football has gone very well and the older boys are preparing for their first Tournament.
As always Cookery is extremely popular the menu for January was Pizza baguettes and salad!
Wave boarding was fantastic as many many kids were there around 25 each Tuesday!
Roanna: “In year 6 science we have been making models of animal and plant cells. The classes have been researching the different structures of cells and making them out of different arts and crafts materials.In year 5 science we have still been working within the topic of ecosystems. Recently the classes have been learning about classification. We have been classifying different types of sweets and haribo!!! This has of course been very popular with the children because they got to eat them at the end 🙂
I have also been working in free time with 4euA and 4euB. We are looking forward to fasching in February!!!! Special celebrations will be had.
There is a school wide chess tournament taking place in May. Any students who want to take part please come see me at chess club! We meet in Haus 3 in the computer room and lunch time.”
