The science of Christmas

17dec2019-science-treeYear 12 and 13 students prepared a Christmas tree with a difference; a Chemis-tree! The tree features colourful solutions of transition metals and also samples of silver created by a redox reaction carried out by students. Students will be tested on these reactions in Year 13 so, not only have we created a decoration for our classroom, we have given students the opportunity to review important chemistry content.

Festive fun

16dec2019-festiveTafira Infants made Christmas memories when visiting Divertilandia in El Sabadal. They were entertained watching a show, had their faces painted, and enjoyed Christmas craft activities and letting off steam in their giant play centre. The children were absolute superstars!




What a load of rubbish

16dec2019-rubbishRecently, Tafira's Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 visited the theatre. We were there to watch a special show about recycling and looking after our planet. The students left enlightened and determined to play a role in ensuring Earth survives in the long as well as short term.

Time for rhyme

27nov2019-rhymesLast week in Nursery we celebrated Nursery Rhyme week with plenty of action and fun! Each day we sang rhymes we knew and learnt a new one. We acted out rhymes with pictures and props, used musical instruments, danced to music as well as other creative activities. We made a fantastic display of Humpty Dumpty sitting on a huge wall, also played Incy Wincy games and had fun with little spiders, pipes and tubes in the water tray. We counted and glued 10 fat sausages into frying pans and helped Little Bo Peep look for her sheep. On Friday afternoon we took part in the Primary Assembly and performed Dingle Dangle Scarecrow.





The power of London

26nov2019-london2019On 4th November, 26 Year 8 students and three members of staff set off on a jam-packed week of fun and culture in London. Staying in Wembley, we started each day with a big buffet breakfast. Our students could sense the dynamism of the British capital.

We learnt a great deal about the history of London: exploring instruments of torture in the Tower of London, seeing dinosaur bones in the Natural History Museum and scaring ourselves in the Dungeons. We revelled in England's literary culture with a tour around Shakespeare's Globe, a day at the Harry Potter studios and a visit to a beautiful bookshop. The students saw the sights of London on the ground, from the river and from above with our sightseeing tour, river cruise and the London Eye.

Plenty of fun was had by all, including London's pigeons and squirrels who we shared lunch with when visiting the parks. Evening activities included restaurant meals, bowling and the brand new West End show, Mary Poppins. Congratulations to Adriana Leon and Daniel Pérez for winning the prize for making the most effort to speak English on the trip! All in all, it was practically perfect!
