Board Games and Chess Club - Ms. Spence
They played a variety of different games of their choice, including snakes and ladders, memory bingo, Ubongo and chess. During chess they learned how each piece moves. It was lovely watching the older children teaching the younger ones. Katya(y5), Vibhav(y4) and Maxim(y3) all were excellent and patient teachers. A highlight was when everyone challenged Miss Aida. Guess who won? Time passed really quickly and all the children said that they can't wait until next time.
Wonderful Watercolours Club – Miss Lucy
Over the previous two weeks, creative juices were definitely flowing in our Wonderful Watercolours Club, with some fabulous results. The children in Years 2 to 4 learned about experimental arts media and painting techniques, and used this knowledge and their own ideas to create small gifts (bookmarks and postcards) for their loved ones. It might take a while (closer to St. Valentine's Day, most likely) for the postcards to reach designated addressees, but certainly they will be worth the wait!
Puzzles, Riddles and Conundrums – Mr. Ward
Pupils thoroughly enjoyed trying to solve a host of riddles. Mr. Brown lives in the Brown House;
Mr. Black lives in the Black House; and Mr. Grey lives in the Grey House. Who lives in the White
House? The president of the United States, of course. The second challenge was to create a large
square out of the seven pieces of a tangram (one parallelogram, one small square and five
triangles, including two large right triangles, one medium right triangle and two small right
triangles). The third and last challenge was to write a coded message, using the Pig-Pen coding
method. Everyone enjoyed the Puzzles, Riddles and Conundrums Club!
