  • On Friday 8th November, the Year 3 and 4 classes had a combined field trip to the Botanical Gardens.  This trip tied-in with the IPC topics of 'The Nature of Life' and 'Land, Sea and Sky'. The children did various nature-related activities including feeding the birds, a sound walk and habitats' exploring.  They also did some artistic activities, including making a 'leaf emoji'. This was a great way to conclude the IPC topics, and for the children to demonstrate their learning.  Well done Years 3 and 4!
  • With the help of Mr Umirov, the Year 4 students made a realistic-looking volcano. The class experimented with different liquids, then made the volcano erupt!
  • As part of their English work on writing instructions, the Year Five Wolves were challenged to make Mr Burke a perfect cup of tea! (Chorney Chai s’molokom!)
They planned out the steps they would have to take and then carefully completed each task from boiling the water to stirring his finished cup of tea.
They did a great job and were safe and organised, though when they started to dip their cookies into his tea – Mr Burke was not so pleased!!!
  • As the final part of the Y6 topic, ‘The Holiday Show’, the class went out into Tashkent to make their own TV programme about tourism in Uzbekistan.

Their first stop was the hotel Uzbekistan, where they interviewed the manager and also some tourists who were staying there.

The children had designed their own questions so that they could find out as much as possible about why tourists come to Uzbekistan and where they go when they are here.

We visited five major tourist sites in the city and found tourists at all of them. They came from all over the world; from countries including Italy, Spain, India, Russia, Hong Kong and some from Uzbekistan itself. The children asked them some very good questions and discovered a wide range of reasons why people visit this country.

The children made great TV presenters and, after the film was edited by Miss Kim, it was shown in the Friday school assembly.

Well done Y6, a great use of technology and a great learning experience.
