News from our Primary Coordinator Anita Mann

I am delighted to have been appointed as the Primary Coordinator. Those parents whose children have been in my classes previously, know that I greatly value open communication and a close partnership with parents. I very much look forward to extending this to all parents with children within Primary. I have worked with most of the pupils in Years 6, 5, 4 and 3 in the past and look forward to getting to know more of the children in Key Stage 1 whilst continuing to teach my amazing Year 4 class.

The primary pupils throughout school have settled into our present routines incredibly well and are always extremely happy and very well motivated to learn whenever I see them. Year 6 have already produced superb time lines and pastel art work about the Blitz. Year 5 have been discussing what they want to find out about Ancient Egypt and have been writing in hieroglyphics. They have also been investigating forces and building their own pulley systems. 

Year 4 initially did work about themselves and produced amazing Cubism portraits in the style of Picasso. For their Pollenca/Mallorca topic they have been comparing the physical and human geography of Palma and Pollenca. The light and shadow topic of Year 3 has included discussing what they know about light and undertaking light experiments. 

Year 2 have been writing fabulous action adventures about the superhero Hercules using amazing adjectives and Year 1 have been creating wonderful collages of the characters of Little Red Riding Hood and labelling the body parts in English, Spanish and Catalan. What a fabulous start all the primary children have made.
