Black & Orange Day fun in FS & KS1:

What an exciting day the children had, all dressed up and ready to go on the parade!

We'll let the photos speak for themselves:



Swimming in KS1:

Key Stage 1 have completed their first swimming unit of the year with great success. Our focus was how to be safe in the water as we learn to swim. Of note this year was the great improvement in attendance and participation in swimming lessons. Our swim coaches and Ms. Susana were delighted with the enthusiasm shown in Year 1 and Year 2. We are also so proud to see those children who were reluctant to swim at the beginning of the term entering the pool with confidence and big smiles!

Our swim unit culminated in the Year 2 Swimming Gala on Tuesday 6th November. This is the children's first swimming event at CES and Ms. Susana did a fantastic job in organising it. Parents and friends gathered to cheer our swimmers on as they took part in a variety of water games to showcase their skills in the pool: floating, diving, holding their breath, sliding in and getting out of the pool, keeping direction and changing from vertical to horizontal floating positions in the water.

We would like to thank everyone – parents, teachers, teaching assistants, our swimming coaches, Ms. Ines from the PE Department and especially Ms. Susana Vieira for encouraging us the whole way. We look forward to Term 3!

Learning in FS:

Foundation Stage children have been having fun in their learning. Now that children are well and truly settled, they are participating in creative learning activities, both inside and outside the classroom, with such enthusiasm!

Learning in FS1:

In Maths, FS1 children were looking at how they could burst a set amount of balloons by standing on an upside down table. How many children would it take until they went POP?

Learning in FS2:

On a treasure hunt:

Creating patterns:

Blue Prints for ship building:

Exploring porridge:

Goldilocks and the Three Bears story boards:
