It has been a busy week in Primary with a Year 4 trip, signing up for the new ECA cycle, Digital Safety Day activities and a Teddy Bear Exhibition! There has also been lots of time for lovely learning in classes too.

Class News

In Hungarian, Year 1 students have learnt about folk traditions related to bears and they made a mini exhibition of teddy bears. Please see the gallery for some photos.

Year 4 went to the Tropicarium as part of their topic on rainforests and habitats. There are some photos in the gallery and on the Facebook page.

Year 3 Tamar have been enjoying the Digital Safety Day activities on the Chromebooks. Look in the gallery for pictures.

Daneil from 3 Stour presented his hypothesis, observation and results on his experiment that he carried out for his project on magnets. Please see the gallery for a photo.

Digital Safety Day

This week, Primary students participated in Digital Safety Day where they undertook activities to raise awareness of how to stay safe online.

Shared last week was a range of activities and guidance for parents who wish to continue this learning at home. You can find the packs here.

Sickness

This winter, there have been some nasty viruses circulating in Hungary (and elsewhere!), with one causing sickness and diarrhoea and the other flu-like symptoms and fever. You have my sympathies if your household has been struck – mine has been unlucky enough to have received them both!

Even if your child is sick, I do understand that many parents are reluctant for their child to miss school. Our wonderful community places a high value on our children’s learning and progress which is lovely to see. However, sending your child to school when sick is not conducive to good learning as they will find it difficult to focus. It may also spread illness among their classmates. If your child is sick, it would be appreciated if you could keep them at home until they have recovered.

I hope you manage to stay well this winter!

Flea Market

On Friday 15th February, there will be a flea market in Primary (please also see poster). This is an opporutnity to clear out toys, books or even clothes which are not used any more. Simply bring them into school and there will be a sale of all donated items on the morning of the 15th.

Items will be priced at around 200 HUF each and will be a fun way to raise extra finds for our community project: Project Pirate Mural.

Project Pirate Mural

This week, the children started voting for their favourite pirate picture book from the range in the library. The book receiving the most votes will be recreated on the wall in the pirate cove in our community project this summer.

If parents would like to see the range of books or even vote yourself, please see the display outside the library and ask Zsuzsa for a voting slip.

Assembly

This week, 2 Mersey class led assembly which they wrote, produced and directed themselves. The theme was famous people. We also did some one-minute meditation and the winner of the chess championship was announced: well done to Arthur from 4 Tees!

Many congratulations to all of our Stars of the Week and children who appeared in the merit book. Check out the Britannica Facebook page for photos of assembly.
