Today we have run an experiment to discover whether coins and bottle caps sink or float.
First we had to think of what we thought was going to happen when we put them in the water basin. Then we ran the experiment and observed what actually happened.
We were surprised when we got a "great" stamp on our worksheet, no matter what we had thought was going to happen. This is because we are becoming critical thinkers and our thoughts are more than welcome!
... and Happy Valentine's day!!!

We finally went on the carnival parade today! We loved dancing in the street and wearing our costumes. This year they were inspired by British films and books, since we are celebrating the XXth British Project anniversary. P3, P4 & P5 children were wearing costumes inspired by Peter Pan film. 1st and 2nd grade children were wearing costumes inspired by the Beetles. 3rd and 4th grade children were wearing costumes inspired by Queen and 5th and 6th grade students were wearing costumes inspired by Harry Potter's books. We've had a great time!
We are learning about different means of transport. Today we sang the song DRIVING ON DOWN TO GRANDPA'S FARM, holding our steering wheels, because we were driving our cars! Driving on down to grandpa's farm x3 What sounds will we hear? We have also reviewed the different animals we learnt in term 1. By guessing the name of the animal's sound. Then we coloured a car while we were listening and or singing the song. We counted how many windows and wheels the car had. We also practised saying "I'm done" and "I'm finished". Meanwhile, Magdi was getting us ready for the carnival parade.

Today we have finally practised our restaurant dialogues. We have learnt about healthy foods in science. The class was split into 6 groups. We worked in groups of 4-5 children to write our restaurant's menu. Then we had to write the dialogue, decide who was going to be the waiter or waitress, customer 1, customer 2 and the nutritionist. Next week we'll perform in front of our classmates. Today was rehearsal day. Here is one of the groups practice.
