very proud of their work. They also have loved having Flat Stanley visit us from Italy, taking him home and writing in his diary. The Year 4’s said their highlights were winning the World Maths Day (a fantastic achievement), racing their Roman ships and having Benjamin Zephaniah visit their class. They also loved the weather conditions on their PingYao trip! Year 5 also enjoyed the weather, stating their ski trip as a highlight along with their fantastic Xi’an residential and their ice skating Marble Reward. The Year 6’s reflected upon their Mongolia trip with great affection; the sand dune surfing coming up frequently along with an appreciation of Genghis Khan. The other highlight that arose for them was the global warming topic, researching, creating leaflets and handing them out in Sanlitun to raise awareness. We say a sad goodbye to our Year 6 children and wish them well in Secondary; they have made great playground monitors and general role models this year - a big thank you to them. We also will be saying goodbye to Miss Hall, our fantastic Year 3 teacher. Miss Hall moves on to start a new life as Mrs. Steele next year. Having served us so well, we wish you all the best and know that your next school are very lucky indeed. Thank you to all the parents who have helped out this year to ensure our trips, events and fixtures are well attended and well supported. Until next term, have a safe and pleasant break, Christian Bishop

EAL

This Week The EAL learners have made a lot of progress this year. Together, we’ve covered a number of challenging topics! All of materials covered have been met with an extremely positive attitude from the EAL students. It’s clear that each student has grown in confidence week by week and the children are increasingly able to access the curriculum with their main class teacher. I’m pleased to say that a good number of children will be coming out of EAL next year. They have surpassed my expectations and their level of English has dramatically improved! I’m fully confident that next year will yield similar if not better results in EAL. I would like to congratulate the children on all their hard work and I’m really looking forward to teaching BSB’s motivated, determined and happy EAL learners next year. Mr. Jonathan Chatters
