Alex enjoys his time in Year 2

Posted by Miriam Tulloch, 05/04/2019

Alex came to join us in Year 2 this week and he had a great time. The boys and girls made him some cards to make him feel welcome. Alex helped us to locate the country he comes from and the city he lives in on google earth. He enjoyed making a boat with children and finding out about the continents of the world. Alex spent some time in our reading corner and helping us with our spellings.

Es regnet!

I don't think that Alex is very impressed by the British weather. Today it has been raining and he has been teaching the Year 1 children all the different German weather words. I hope it'll be sunny tomorrow!

Ben exploring the classroom

Posted by Tina Seidel, 03/04/2019

Since we canĀ“t take a picture of the entire classroom, we first made a model and then drew a plan of the classroom. Ben watched us drawing all the details - we even put the plants in it!
