Winter Wonders in MP2

November & December

The end of the year has come and gone and the weather is starting to get a bit colder…or rather more rainy!
However, the rain and cold has not dampened MP2’s spirits and they have had a very full couple of months!

A very Happy Birthday to 3 of our class, Mirei, Rafa and Ying Ying. It’s always nice to celebrate with our class!

We had a great time visiting Ms Sterre in Brussels for a fantastic concert and art performance, ISG even had their name displayed on the train board at the station!

In Literacy we have started to use our CAFÉ board to help us direct our own learning. CAFÉ stands for Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency and Extend Vocabulary and helps us remind ourselves and each other what reading strategy we are working on at the moment.

In Numeracy Year 3 and 4 have both been studying measurement, times tables and division as well as revising a lot of what they have already learnt for their end of term tests. They should all be very proud of their results!

In IPC, the students have been busy learning about the difference between significant and famous and about people who have made a great difference to our world.

We researched a few scientific discoveries and inventions and their makers, we investigated significant people from our home countries and we studied the work of Antoni Gaudi.

The students have almost finished their Gaudi inspired mosaics and we look forward to seeing the finished result soon!

We finished the term with a song, welcoming Sinterklaas to our classroom with gifts and rehearsing and performing ‘Santa is back in town’ for the Christmas show.

To top it all off we had a great trip to the centre of Gent to enjoy some festive ice skating!
We hope you all enjoyed a pleasant and well earned holiday break and are looking forward to the New Year!
