A Bouquet of Carols

 

If you want to feel in the mood for Christmas, there’s no better way than by enjoying songs and carols sung by a choir of children.

In Year 2, there was festive cheer throughout their recital.

The colourful hats and gloves were the perfect compliment to a wonderful little Christmas concert.

And after that, we all had some chocolate and churros.

Merry Christmas!

The Magical Christmas Jigsaw

 

Every Christmas, our primary classes put on a festive show. 

Year 5 and Year 6 put a huge amount of effort into their performance of an ensemble piece called The Magical Christmas Jigsaw.

The play recreates the Nativity story, seen through the eyes of modern children, who have come across an enchanted jigsaw puzzle.

Each piece of the jigsaw shows a different part of the first Christmas, with a full cast of angels, shepherds, kings, inn-keepers and of course, the holy couple and their newborn baby.

The show was also full of catchy songs and dance numbers, a few jokes and plenty of pizzazz.

But probably the best thing about it, was how much the Year 5 and 6 players enjoyed themselves on stage.

A proper Yuletide treat!

Making Merry

 

In Year 1, we celebrated the festive season with singing, dancing and Christmas crafting.

Even our mums and dads joined in the making activities, so we all got into the Yuletide mood.

We love Christmas!

High Kicks at Christmas

 

Our taekwondo club is a fairly recent addition to the school’s extra-curricular activities, but its popularity has grown at a rapid rate.The martial art originated in Korea. The name taekwondo literally translates as the way of the foot and the fist.As you can see, precision high kicks formed the main part of the end-of-term display given by our young martial arts students.

Taekwondo is great exercise and involves the excitement of hand-to-hand (and foot-to-foot!) combat.

At the end of every session, the combatants are encouraged to seek a moment of mindful relaxation.

No wonder they enjoy taekwondo so much!

The Little Tin Soldier Comes To Elian’s

 

Our students are lucky enough to benefit from music lessons given by specialist teachers, who visit our school every week.The music teachers work with several primary classes, helping them to learn the rudiments of music and rhythm.They also give individual and small group lessons to aspiring pianists, ‘cellists, violinists and singers.This Christmas we were treated to a show by all our young musicians.The songs and musical pieces were based on the theme of “The Little Tin Soldier”.What better way to bring in the festive season!

Let Christmas Begin!

Christmas is here and we have been treated to carols in English and Spanish.

 

 

 

 

As if that wasn’t enough, we also had a display from our primary dance clubs.We watched them perform modern dance numbers and some classic Spanish flamenco.

 

 

 

Then our ukulele players played us more Christmas songs on their instruments and the whole show was rounded off by a singalong finale.

 

We’re really in the festive spirit now! 

The Science of Separation

 

Take a look at our Year 4 students, busy investigating ways of separating solids of different shapes, sizes, colours, and properties in their Science class.They used a tray, sieve, magnet, some pebbles, sand and iron filings to get their results.

Then wrote down their observations.So many budding scientists!

Spider-kids!

 

We’ve got some talented climbers in our primary school! Two of our Year 6 students and one from Year 3 scored podium finishes in the Autonomous Difficulty climbing championship for the Valencian Community.It was organised by CEMB and FEMCV and took place in the Camilo Cano sports centre La Nucia. Our students were all finalists in their different categories: Martina (6A) was 2nd in speed and 3rd overall in female under-12s.  Rafa (6A) was 3rd in difficulty and also 3rd overall in the male under-12s. Emily (3A) was 1st in speed and 2nd in difficulty for female under-9s.
