It has been a busy week in Primary with Maths Week, a World Record attempt and a Maths hat assembly! There has also been lots of time for lovely learning in classes too.

5 Teme have been working on Islamic Art.

Book looks

Over the last 2 weeks, our Coordinators for English and Maths, Mr Hudspith and Mrs Brandon respectively, have been looking through the children’s workbooks and the teacher’s planning from Years 1-6. They were delighted with the range of activities, the differentiation to ensure that all children are supported and challenged at their level and the resulting progress and reflection from the children. Well done to all!

Erasmus Students

This week, we were visited from some Erasmus students from Belgium. They visited classes in Lower Primary and were impressed with our lovely children, their work ethic and enthusiasm for the activities in class. Our children really are a pleasure to be around and their enthusiasm for their learning is wonderful to see. Thank you to all the teachers also who hosted the students. It is great to support the next generation of teachers.

World Record Attempt

On Wednesday the whole of Britannica participated in a Guinness World Record breaking attempt of the largest number of people dancing to Oops Upside Your Head. What a fantastic community effort with Primary, Secondary, staff and Parents coming together to smash the previous record of 333 people. Britannica managed 419 people! Congratulations to all.

Many thanks to Kinga from First Med and Duncan from Buda Juniors and Bat and Ball Cricket Academy who were our independent adjudicators. A massive thank you to Mrs Brandon for all her efforts in organising the record event and all the Maths Week activities.

Maths Week

This week, the whole of Primary have been participating in Maths activities and problems involving the area of time, our whole Primary target for this year. The children attempted some timed records in class on Wednesday, while there were a variety of problem-solving activities where children get the chance to apply their learning in new situations. A huge thank you to Mrs Brandon for all her work in making this a special and highly useful week for Primary!

Swimming Champ!

Well done to Oliver from 3 Tamar class for his success in the Budapesti Diákolimpia (50 meter breaststroke) where he won his race! Congratulations!


This week, Mrs Brandon led the Maths Week assembly and the whole of Primary looked wonderful in their hats. We also did some one-minute meditation.

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.
