Early Years

his year has been new and exciting as we now have three classes in the Nursery Department, and new members of staff who have brought individual qualities and experiences which have enriched the Nursery team. During the first term we focussed on colour and shape and had great fun dressing up on Colour Days. The Christmas Production was a significant experience for the children as it allowed them to share (with their families) songs that they had learnt at school and helped them to develop a sense of occasion. The second term gave the children the opportunity to find out about each others families and

further develop their English vocabulary. We celebrated Carnival during Creative Arts week which involved colourful and exciting activities. The summer term started with Book Week and gave the children and teachers an opportunity to dress up as a story book character. On a damp April morning, the Early Years department set off to the farm school in Valverde. The children had a wonderful day and the rain stayed away. Our final topic was the Seaside with lots of creative activities which prepared us for the Summer break.


Nursery

Seahorse

A

fter a few tears the children settled easily into the class, and learnt to sleep in siesta, sit beautifully in a circle and to line up.

The chil-

3

dren have formed excellent relationships with each other, they love making up games together, especially playing at being teachers! The children, and teachers, in Seahorses love dressing up and so our Colour Days were a great success! On Yellow Day we sang Yellow Submarine, painted our class submarine, and wore silly yellow hats.


The children have approached

all new activities with tremendous enthusiasm and have grown in confidence and maturity. They soon began to use new vocabulary in English at every opportunity, on our shape hunts there were cries of “Look triangle” and “Look rectangle”.

On Blue Day the world

looked blue through our blue glasses. Red Day found us dancing and on Green Day we were monsters.

D

uring Creative Arts Week we spent a wonderful morning with 6L making Carnival masks. The Year Six children really encouraged our class and everyone enjoyed the occasion. In Book Week 6L read stories to the Seahorses which was a beautiful experience for all.

In this final term we all had great fun on the farm. The children then painted animal masks and have

impressed their teachers with their confident use of English in our song “Where’s my mummy?” We also made amazing animal biscuits. This has truly been a wonderful and exciting year for all the children in Seahorses and their teachers would like to thank them for being so fantastic!

Nursery

Starfish

Starfish Nursery have had a re-

ally busy and successful year. The children have enjoyed playing together, making new friends and learning lots of new things in English. We are so proud of how independent they have become during the year. We can still remember when they said a tearful goodbye to their parents on their first day. We have had many happy times this year and there are lots of special things we will remember. It was great fun trying lots of different coloured food on our colour day.

Then at Christmas the children

were very brave and sang a song about a snowman for their families. Our baby clinic was a huge success and they all enjoyed baby Beatrizs visit to the class and bathing the dolls in the second term.

A

s part of the Arts Week they worked with some of the children from Year 6S, painting butterflies, then Year 6 read stories during Book Week.

5


A great day was our trip to the

farm and this inspired the children to paint some fabulous animal pictures and masks.

The children have loved singing and have learnt many songs

and rhymes. It is great to hear them sing and speak in English and we are thrilled with how much they have grown, both as individuals and as a class.

We will miss them next year, but we are sure they will all be very happy and well prepared for their Reception class. Well done Starfish class!

Nursery

Jellyfish

In term one the Jellyfish class

started school. Some of us settled really quickly and others took a little more time but it didn’t matter because the children all enjoyed coming to school and playing with new friends. The children enjoyed finding out where everything is kept and playing with toys. It was great fun learning about shapes and colours. At the end of the term we were able to invite families into school to see us dressed up as father Christmas and singing “Must Be Santa” and “Twinkle, Twinkle little Star”.

L

In February we joined in with

the Creative Arts week and some children from year Five helped us make carnival masks and musical instruments.

7

ater our class Topic was “Spring-time & Families” The children brought in photos of their families. It was lovely to talk about mums, dads, grandparents and cousins etc. The children enjoyed telling us who was who! One of the children brought their little baby sister in to school and showed us how to bathe her. It was so much fun that the children played baby bathing in our role-play area.


A

fter the Easter holidays we began learning about farm animals and things that happen in Summer time. The children had an amazing day at a real farm. There were lots of things to do like making bread, a puppet show and lots of animals to see. It is lovely to see how the children have developed and grown over the year. We wish them all the best in reception class.

Reception

Angelfish

In term one the Angelfish class looked back at

photos of when they very small and we invited Mrs. Phillips and her baby son Zach into the class to visit. We discovered that all the children had grown up so much and could now do so many things by themselves! We enjoyed learning the names of the days of the week and tasting fruit through the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The children also printed with the fruit to make colourful repeating patterns and we played games with the ‘feely bag’ to guess the textures and shape of hidden objects.

F

ollowing the Christmas break our class Topic concentrated on Toys – old and new. The girls and boys painted pictures of their favourite toys and investigated what toys were made of and how they moved. The class used toy money in our role play Toy Shop and enjoyed making spinning tops and designing robots. The class brought in lots of teddy bear books and near the end of term, Archie, our class bear invited all their bears to a very special party!

The children drew some beautiful pictures of some scenes from the Pied Piper of Hamelin following our Theatre trip.

9


This

term the pupils have planted sunflower seeds and peas and beans in class in preparation for our Farm Visit. We also observed the progress of silkworms and brought in photos and some real pets to look at. The children all enjoyed role play in the Vets and Pets Clinic and learnt how to take good care of their animals.

D

uring book week we retold the traditional story of The Little Red Hen through puppets and masks and everyone illustrated their very own zig-zag books. We have had a very busy year in Reception and the children are all looking forward to next session when they move on to Year 1. Mrs. Davidson.

Reception

Rainbow Fish

The Reception Rainbowfish children have had a

very busy year. It has all been new and exciting for these 24 children who only joined the B.S.A. in September 2006. For many of these children it was the first experience of learning English and even school life. We are very proud of how well the children have progressed and adapted to their new school. Well done!

D

uring the first term in Reception we studied “Ourselves” which involved learning lots of songs about the body and lots of new words in English. The children began to learn or revise basic colours, shapes and numbers in English and were introduced to the Jolly phonics scheme, learning letter sounds. At Christmas the children were able to perform for their parents and show them how much they had achieved, singing a song in English. What a good first term we had!

In the second term our topic was “Toys”.

The children loved this theme and it gave them an opportunity to further their language development and undertake lots of creative activities e.g. painting pictures of their favourite toys, playing in the toy shop and designing and making a robot. In January we introduced the book bags and the children have all really enjoyed the experience of reading and taking home books. We also went on our first theatre trip to see the Pied Piper of Hamelin where everyone behaved very well and drew some wonderful pictures of the play.

We celebrated Carnival during Creative Arts The last term began with Book week and we week which involved many different activities and all the children’s work was put up on display. What a busy second term.

made little zig-zag books about “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. At the end of the week we dressed up as a story book character. Our final topic was “Animals” and we were able to have a wonderful day out on the farm trip. The children loved talking about the animals and this topic was a great way to end the year in Reception. We wish them the best of luck in Year 1.

12


Reception

Optopuses The Octopus class have had a very busy year and have

enjoyed learning lots, especially learning how to read and write.

D

uring our first term we learnt all about ourselves and the ways in which we have changed since we were babies. We had lots of fun looking at our baby photographs trying to guess who the babies were. We enjoyed pretending to be doctors and nurses in our mini health centre, and especially enjoyed bandaging up Miss Whittam!

Our second terms topic was all about toys and we were

very excited to have our toy day, when we showed each other all our new toys that we received from the three kings. We produced some fantastic designs of robots and worked really carefully making models of them. We also celebrated carnival through our arts week, where we took part in many exciting activities.

During our Arts week in February, we took part in many exciting activities. We loved dressing up in our carnival costumes!

We made a special carnival pi単ata and then had great fun trying to hit it open!

13

The year 4 children came to help us make carnival masks.


In our final term we have learnt all about the

different types of animals. We started off with a trip to the farm which helped us to remember all the names of the animals. Then we made our own pet shop and told each other about the pets that we have or would like. Finally we learnt all about the animals that we might find in the jungle and had great fun dressing up and acting like little lions and monkeys.

We had a special hat day and learnt how to do carnival

Year 1 Poem

In Year 1 Penguins we’ve had a great year, We can’t believe the end is near. Lots of trips and special weeks, Lots of work and lots of treats! We speak so much English, And read and write too, We sing lots of songs, We know what to do! We brought things to show for all our topics, Like toys, and teddies, and material objects. We’ve played lots of games and danced in P.E, We enjoyed the computers in ICT. In maths, to 100 and more we can count, We add and subtract and work out amounts. In Art we have drawn and painted beautifully, Made collages and printed, please come and see! At Christmas as angels we sang a song, In Book Week we brought our teddies along. We made lion puppets with the help of Year 3, And story maps in 3D! We went on a trip to see some old toys, And later to play with the girls and the boys, We went to the theatre and enjoyed the show, Of Little Red Riding Hood, a story we know. We’ve had so much fun and we’ve learnt such a lot, And we mustn’t forget Sr. Bellot! Now we are ready to start Year 2, Next year we wonder what will we do!

Y4M

Primary

Trip to Elche

In year 4 we went to Elche, it was a Tuesday and it

was very hot. We went on a little train and then had our snacks in the Palmeral. I like how it was because it was near my house. Then we went to the Egyptian museum, and then we saw a giant screen, afterwards we ate again in the Palmeral. Then we went to the play park and the swings. After that we went to school and after school I went home. Natalia Galan

Mr Manning Fox says: This was my first year at the BSA and Class 4M have made sure that I really enjoyed it. They make me laugh with their jokes and sometimes they even understand mine! I will miss teaching them and wish them all every success as they move up through the school.

Villajoyosa

In year 4 we went to a trip to Vil-

la Joyosa and we went to an archaeological museum and we put on some tunics then we wrote our age in Roman numbers. Then we went to a park to eat and then we went to the chocolate factory of Valor. Then they gave us chocolate. After that we saw statues and we saw how we make chocolate. Alejandra Lledo I liked it a lot when we went to Valor in Villa Joyosa, the chocolate factory, it was amazing. First we saw a DVD about how they made chocolate, then we saw the factory, it was fabulous. After a while we went to the shop and they gave us 4 chocolate sweets and I bought a bar of chocolate. After eating my lunch I wanted to eat a piece of chocolate but instead I ate my sweets because I wanted to save my chocolate for my house so my family could taste it. All my family wanted some and I gave them 3 little squares each.

We went to a museum in Villa Joyosa and we learned about the Romans. They gave us a piece of wood with some wax inside and with a little thing made of wood we wrote our name and our age with roman numbers. And we put on some white tunics like Romans. Then we went to a chocolate factory of Valor where they told us the story of Valor. We looked at a video of Valor how the chocolate was made and inside the video there were some adverts. We went inside the chocolate factory and they gave us a bag with 4 chocolate sweets and a little book telling how to make the chocolate. We went to a park to eat our dinner. Then we went to school and got our bags and went home. Gonzalo Martinez

Ana Anton

The funniest thing that happened to me

It was when Yongmin came to car-

nival dressed as a Grandmother. It was very funny, he had a walking stick, a purple dress and also he had a grey wig. Carlos Hannibal The funniest thing that happened to me was when Iara made a funny face to Natalia and Natalia told the teacher. Later the teacher told Iara and Natalia to stand up and to make silly faces at each other for 10 seconds. When the class saw then they laughed for a long time. Chiara Alessi

In assembly Mr O’Connor gave me a certificate for a story but I didn’t do any story. It was year 3 that did the story and it was Ivan of year 3. Then Jorge said that we didn’t do any stories and Mr O’Connor read the certificate and it said 3J so I gave the certificate to Ivan of year3. Ivan Moreno In carnival I dressed as a fairy. It was Friday. We played all day and we did not do homework only played, dance, played games and we did a picnic with Y4D. And in Spanish we did not do homework only played a game and then we went to the assembly and we did a parade. On my table Alex dressed up as a knight, Jorge dressed up as a cow boy, Jamie as a cow boy, Carmen as a cow girl and Yong Xuan as a bull fighter. And then Mr Manning Fox took a photo. Ying Zhou

Y5C

Primary Mr O´Connor

It has been a pleasure teaching year 5 this year. Every member of the class is a real asset to the British School of Alicante and I am sure they will all make great strides in the future. I have been extremely impressed with all of their hard work and enthusiasm over the year. All of the children have their own strengths and each of them bring something special to the class. The children have created some genuinely strong friendships, I am sure, one day when they are a little older, they will look back at this year book together with fond memories.

5C Memories Football with Fernando, Alex, Juan, Alfonso, Luis , Carlos and Cayetano

We have all really enjoyed playing football this year. Juan, Luis and Alex joined football as an extra curricular activity and have had the chance to play in the league. During patio we usually all play on the same team because we are all good friends. We take it in turns to play in goal but Fernando and Carlos are the real goal keepers. Juan, Alfonso and Luis are the strikers and usually score the goals. With Alex and Cayetano in defence we usually never lose!

At Ceramics with Hana, Marta amd Lucia

We remember when Marta made Lucia and Hana laugh. Lucia and Marta painted each others faces with clay. We had great fun. In one lesson we made a mini-house out of clay, once we finished we left it in the oven to harden. Then we had the chance to paint our house. We all hope to carry on next year.

My friend Victor by Harry Marshall My favourite memory is when I first met Victor. He made me feel very welcome to the school. It was my first day when Victor became my friend. He is funny and kind, he also plays with me a lot. He’s really reliable and a good friend.

Medieval day Tom Jenkins

Writing competition by Lydia Kay

At the Traffic Park by John, Michael, Kyle

Our favourite memory was when we went to the Traffic Park. Michael went through about 50 red lights while John ran over the person in charge and was not allowed to ride for a few minutes. Meanwhile, Kyle burst a tire while riding around a sharp turn.

33

My favourite memory is when most of the class entered a writing competition. All the excitement made me feel a bit sick. I love entering competitions because there is always the chance of winning. Competitions are cool and fun. If I could turn back time I would go back to that moment.

On medieval day we dressed up as medieval people and we had to find out who killed the kings tax man. Medieval day was set up in the sports hall; there was a bar, the king’s castle, the market, etc. At lunch we had a lovely feast. At the end of the day we found out who the murderer was and it was lord Devil.


Internet safety PowerPoint presentation by Robin Debondt

My favourite memory is when me and John made a power point presentation, it was my first time and I liked it .We were making a power point presentation about internet safety. I decided to do it with John because he is one of my best friends.

Making carnival floats by Monique Bachu

My favorite memory is when we were making the carnival floats. I made one with my friend, we had to use lots of newspaper because the tubes we were using were very slippery and we could not paint them. We made a space float and it was pretty hard. We had a sun a moon and a very big rocket. The rocket was blue and red. The float was really good.

My friend Alex by Daniel Lledo

One of my best friends is Alex, he is very funny. At play time, one day, Alex scored 1 goal and I scored 3. We are very good at football. He is little like me and we like to talk about films and games. His English is very good and he draws very well.

Medieval day by Paula Martinez

My best memory this year was when we had the Medieval day. First we went in to our groups; we saw lots of people dressed up in medieval costumes. We watched a play by the teachers and we had to solve a murder by following clues.

Carnival week picture by Mario Beltran

I remember when I, Alfonso, Carlos created a picture of space with a spaceship, the Sun, the Earth and the moon. This was for carnival week, it was beautiful, and we thought it was the best thing in the class.

My friends by Ornella

These are my best friends! Paula is always very helpful, Irene and Marta are really funny, Lucia is always friendly, Lydia is kind and Hana always has clever ideas.

Judo by Victor Lin Hu

Irene Nicolas Internet safety week

My friend Harry by Ethan Port

My greatest memory is when Harry came to school; he was very funny and good at football. After a few weeks Harry became Geography boy, this is because he is great at geography. Then he became Toms, Johns, Michaels and my best friend.

My favourite memory this year was when we created a Power point presentation about the safe side of internet for y3. We watched a video first, the video taught us: Never open emails, downloads or pop-ups with out asking an adult. Never chat with someone you don’t know and never meet someone on the internet. Do not post personal information online about yourself. Never respond to emails or anything that makes you feel weird or uncomfortable and always tell an adult.

My favourite day was at Judo, it was in a competition when I had fought with a child that was quite good and he beat me with his best attack. He was first and I was second, I felt glad to be second. However, I have been working hard in Judo and I think I will beat that child next time; I want to have the competition now!

Y6L

Primary

Mrs. Langton My second Year 6 class at BSA. Children always think it’s hard for them to have to get to know a new teacher but the teacher also has to get to know them! I’ll be sorry to lose them now but I know they are definitely ready for greater things. WELL DONE YEAR 6L! Ernesto

When I was in year 5 I didn’t expect that year 6 would be so difficult, it was nothing like year 5. Although you always have a chance to have fun with your friends and chat, you have to work hard for your SATS.

Jemma

When you go to year 6 you fell very nervous and for me I felt it was difficult. But I got the hang of things

Brooke

I came into Y6L from a different school and was very nervous because I had never been new at a school before. I thought that my new teacher would be strict or mean and that I wouldn’t fit in with anyone. But I made lots of new friends and my teacher, Miss Langton was the best I had ever had. She likes to do lots of work, not to mention lots of homework!!!! Miss Langton has prepared us well for year 7 and the SATS. I think it will be hard in Secondary but I think we will be OK. After all, Miss Langton has never failed us yet!!!

Carlos Javier

Year 6 is a very difficult level. When I do something bad the teacher shouts at me. In patio time we always play games of running and football. I think that the SATS are a bit difficult.

Alba

Being in Year 6 has been a bit difficult when we arrived in September. But since November it has changed, now it’s not so difficult, it’s normal. And don’t think MRS.LANGTON is bad, because she’s not!

35

Amy

I had a lot to think about in year 6 like jobs, SATS, learning new stuff, but I enjoyed it. Miss Langton has got us ready for our SATS, she has also got us ready for year 7, but she is not all work she has been a laugh.

Carlos

I think that year 7 is going to be hard to start, so I will study more. In year 6 you have to work hard,.

Ainhoa

ADVICE FOR YEAR 5 •DONT FORGET YOUR HOMEWORK OF ANYTHING. •DON’T EVER IN YOUR LIFE LOSE YOUR BOOKS.

Roberto

What I think is that this term it has been difficult because we have been studying hard because of the Sats, but what I also had was lots of support from my two teachers. The good thing is that we will be able to eat what we want and buy things on the food machine in secondary.

Yvette

This is really the best school I’ve been in. The teachers have my best interest at heart which I have needed as I entered Y6, my friends are loyal and they care about me this means a lot because I will not have to face secondary alone. The SAT´s are a lot of pressure. I advise new Y6´s to listen to the basics.


Philip

I think y6 has been a very hard year, because like Chris said our teacher is obsessed with hard work, but now I think she’s good. I as well I think that Y7 is going to be worse because of the home work but the good thing is that you have more treats and rewards.

Shannon

When I went into yr6 I thought it was going to be all hard work and SATS but a couple of months into yr6 I found out that it could be a laugh as well. People used to say Miss. Langton was a strict teacher but we found out that she has a lot of sarcasm in her (ha-ha).

Christopher

My first day was on the 5th of September, I didn’t know anybody so I felt a bit left out but after I got to know everyone I began to feel much better. Now I know the school and I know I can find my way though the primary corridors but I have just adjusted to this and now I am going up to secondary and that is very different.

Pablo

I think it is hard to leave primary because I have lots of friends in Year 3 to 5.Year 7 is going to be difficult because we don’t know any people and the work is going to be a lot harder than in primary. In my opinion the good thing is that we can choose the food that we want. Every day we are going to do homework.

Patricia

When I got to Year 6 I thought it was going to be too difficult and that I was never going to get good marks. But now that I am finishing the year I can see that Year 6 is like an ordinary year, apart from having more trips more advantages and a really good teacher (Mrs. Langton really she is nice you just have to stay with her 1 year and she’ll be as nice as your own mum)Mrs. Langton has really taught us a lot as you can see my writing I think has improved. In my opinion 3 cheers for Mrs. Langton. To finish this I’ll give some tips for the Years 5 passing to Year 6: -always talk and give opinions -keep your books neat -finish your homework in time -AND NEVER TALK IN SPANISH IN CLASS!!!!!!!!

Obdulio

Some people have told me that secondary school is very difficult and I’m very scared at leaving the junior school. It is good to go to the senior school because we know more people. I’m scared because they will give us a lot of homework everyday.

Marina

This year we’ve been doing very hard work because we are doing the SATS to go to secondary. Miss. Langton has been a brilliant teacher and she has taught us everything we need to know. We are all nervous because we are going to secondary but we hope we enjoy it as much as primary. Year 5 I hope you enjoy Year 6. Good luck!

Jorge

I hope Year 7 will be as easy as Year 6. When you get to the SATS test you may be a bit scared.

Jesus

My first day at BSA was when I was in year 2 and I have progressed through to year 6 I have enjoyed all my subjects with Ms Langton and now I’m going up to secondary and that will be very different for me.

Laura

This year we’ve been doing very hard work especially the last term because we are having the SAT’s .At the beginning of the year we thought Miss .Langton was very strict but now she is teaching us very well .Nearly all of us are a bit nervous starting in secondary, people say they do lots of tests. The residential trip is going to be a relax after so much hard work, it sounds very interesting we hope it is going to be a very good trip. So year 5 don’t be thinking it’s all hard work you get a chance to play!

Y6S

Primary Mrs. Swoffer

My first year at the BSA has been hard work but a lot of fun because of the lovely children in the school. I’m sure that all the primary staff will agree that 6S are vibrant and lively class with heaps of personality; we will miss each and everyone one of you. Our corridors will definitely be a lot quieter without them. Don’t forget to come and visit us! Anastassia

I enjoyed my primary school with my teachers and friends. I liked all my subjects. My favorite subjects are Literacy and Numeracy. I look forward to secondary and to new teachers, new subjects and more homework. But I will miss my primary teacher’s.

Alex

My life in year 6 had been really wonderful although the SATs were very difficult. Some days have been excellent and wonderful. My teacher called Jo Swoffer is quite strict mostly and she kept reminding us about SATS. My favorite teacher was in year 4 who was called Miss Doherty. The teacher who mostly taught me English was in year 2 and 3, miss Pilkington. I have enjoyed lots of things I have done in this year!!!

Maria

My life in year six has been difficult because of the SATS. One of the things I have like is being with my friends. In less than a month we are going on a trip for 5days. We are all nervous about going into secondary and I am a little bit scared about it. I have loved being in year six!

Emilio

My life in primary has been really funny! My days in year 6 have been really difficult and hard. The SATS, my teacher called Jo Swoffer which is really strict and loads of more things. My favorites teachers are Miss Doherty, Mrs Swoffer Ms Langton and last but not less important……Mrs Pilkington. There were loads of jobs to do in year 6, I was teacher liaison officer.

Fiona

“Year six has been a very difficult and exciting year” The most ghastly thing was preparing for S.A.T.S. I really want to have my own locker so that I can have my own private things like my diary or even my school diary.

37

Gerry

My life in year 6 has been great, I have more friends! My year in year 6 so far has been better then in year 5. My friends are Scott, Pete, Josh Oliver, Chris, Jordy, Mario, Javier Coll and loads more. Unfortunately Josh has left but I still keep in touch with him Pete is in England because his Dad is ill and we all miss him.

Claudia

My life in year 6 has been exciting, I expected that year 6 was going to be really hard but I realize that it was really funny!!! Also we had a new teacher that was amazing, and really funny!!! This year the only thing I was worried were the SATS …In this year I liked a lot being school councilor because we can choose more things for our class. This year I had make some really good friends like Javier, Eduardo, Tara, Jordy, guillemo,Scott, Oliver, Gerry , Emilio, Roberto , Alex, Mario and lots of more!!!

Javier R

This year it was different, we have lot of exams and I had never had a teacher like Mrs. Swoffer. She educates us more and now Javier coll, edu and the others like me are as good as the rest of the class. This year was one of my best in my life, but I think that year 7 will be more exciting!

Natasha

My life in year 6 has been really ENJOYABLE!!! . When we did the practice sats I was really nervous but very excited to get results. I and Saskia helped Mrs. Swoffer doing the displays and we had a certificate. Above all I was more excited when Mr. O’Connor chose me to be the house cap-

Nacho

I have been trying very hard this year for SATs at the end of year, I am looking forward to the residential trip at the end of the year. My favourite aspects of primary are this: My favourite teacher is Miss Doherty My favourite year was year 5


Mario

My year six has been better than any other year in the school because we can do jobs that in years 2, 3, 4 or 5 we couldn’t do, like siesta beds or play with the fun little boys in nursery or reception. Now we are the house captains and school councilors so we can make a better school. In year 6 we go to furthest places like to Matalascañas (Huelva) for a great time for 5 days. But not all is fun because next year we are going to have more homework and much more work and we have to move around all the school.

Eduardo

Ok I’ve had a great time in 6s with my friends and my teacher Joanne Rose Mountjoy Swoffer… the best juppy… lovely and quite good…I’m not the best scientist (ufff) or a perfect writer. My best friends PETER, JAVI, JAVI, ROBERTO, MARIO, SCOTT, JOSH, OLIVER, GERRY…Maria, claudy, Tari etc…I think that my best moment in year 6 was the moment when we went to a museum and we saw a lot of paints.

Ollie

My life in year 6s has been great fun, lots of friends such as Gerry, Scott, Josh, Peter, Chris and lots more. Josh my friend has now left. Also my friend peter has gone back to England but he will be back in year 7.

Raj

When I started in year six, I made lots of friends. I thought I wouldn’t make any friends, but I have made loads. The teachers at this school are very nice, my favourite Teacher is Mrs Swoffer. It was a good choice to come to this school .I am looking forward going into year seven but there will be a lot of homework and I am NOT looking forward to that.

Roberto

I liked the year six because Mrs. Swoffer came. She doesn’t shout as much as others. I got more friends like Javi C, Javi R, Edu and Scott. Peter has gone to England because his dad’s in a English hospital.Josh went to another school called sebat. I think we all miss him.

Saskia

I liked it a lot in primary. All the time I have understood something with all my fabulous teachers. I would love it to be like it has been in primary but in secondary.

Javi

My year six has been all right. We get to do fun stuff like be house captains and get jobs. My friends in year six are great like MARIO,EDU,DAVI DM,DAVID,ROBERTS also known as ROBERTO,JAVI R,GERRY,OLIVER,JOSH,PETER, MARIA, Claudi and lots more. My teacher is quiet good MRS SWOFER she gives us sweets. In year seven I look forward to good lunch, more homework etc etc. Not everything is good JOSH has left and PETER is along time since I see him. At end of year we are going to matalascañas(Huelva)for 1 week. My best classes are P.E Valencian and more so beware 5C!

At the beginning I expected it to be hard in Year 6 but it turned out to be OK. I thought that I would find the new vocabulary in year 6 complicated, but it wasn’t too bad, my mum and dad had told me most of those words during the summer holidays. I thought that the maths would be the most complicated work of all, because in years 4 and 5 I was not that good at math, however now I’m in the highest maths group! Lucky me! I also was elected as House Captain for my team: Water. My teacher Mrs. Joanne Rose Swoffer is very nice and helps us with the work, which we do not understand. I have made many new friends and I sure am looking forward to Year 7.

Jordy

We did a lot of fun things and bad things the most time good things. We played a lot of football and we scored lot of goals but then the ball goes over the fence and we have to wait until the man comes. In class there were silly boys and good boys. And I have nice friends called Ollie, Gerry, Scott, peter, Chris, Javier coll, Mario and More.

Sam

It’s been harder for me in year six because I’m new to this school, but I know my way round now! I’m looking forward to our trip in the summer, but not to SATs. I’ve made lots of new friend’s,our teacher is Mrs Swoffer and she is very kind.

David

I’ve been in the last class of primary and I was looking forward to do the sats because then I pass to year 7… and im happy and all my family is happy!

Guillermo

I had been trying hard in year six for this moment, SATs one of the hardest test. I have to improve my effort and science! The sport in year 6 had been very competitive so I liked that because I am very good at sport.

Y8B

Secondary My class….Year 8B by Mrs. Bowers

So there we were first day back after our glorious summer holidays, looking warily at each other and trying to psyche each other out. Yes… there were reservations on both sides, their infamy had preceded them and presumably they’d heard a thing or two about me. We very quickly learned more! So here we are now approaching the end of a year where we have had and overcome many problems (Nicole why do you have to stick you nose upwards using sellotape?? And Anis there may be an I in your name but there is no I in team…).We have had some sad and happy times and the saddest of all (from my point of view) is about to happen, the end of the year and the end of them being my class.

So what were the highlights?

Here is our Alphabet for year 8B…..

Me: The trip to Murcia, it was so interesting and the activities were really well presented by the monitors Them: The holidays Me: The Halloween disco, the costumes were amazing and everyone had a great time Them: The friendly atmosphere Me: The Anti – smoking visit arranged by the Ayuntamiento. This really made us all think about our personal habits and good health. Them: It hasn’t happened Ah well…. Guess that’s just the generation gap! So I’d just like to end by saying,“ It was a really interesting year and I will miss you all”.

A is for Astonishing, B is for Beautiful, C is for Crazy, D is for Disgusting (we know what) E is for Ewww! F is for Fantastic, G is for Great, H is for all those hours and hours, I is for Intelligent, J is for Joe (smiley face), K is for kool (o.k spelling’s not our strong point), L is for looney, M is for Mad, N is for Nutty( watch out Hannah), O is for Ouch!!, P is for Pathetic, Q is for Queasy ( see D), R is for Rock on Hugh!, S is for smelly, T is for Tantrums, U is for us, V is for Valor Mrs B’s favourite choccy, W is for that other lot, X is for X-treme, Y is for rebel yell , Z is for zoo (sometimes we have been described as this).

Funniest moments of the year… Well… there were lots of funny moments this year, but the one of the funniest must be the time Melanie and I had to act out Macbeth for history, but the worst thing was that we had to act out as the two witches!!... Melanie decided to put scarfs on our heads and jumpers just to look a bit older than we are. We also decided to wear Mrs. Bowers glasses, even at the point when we were ready to rehearse, we couldn’t stop giggling. When we both started practising our speeches we put on old woman voices that were the laughing started...but wait there is more! At the end of our play Melanie and I had to chant a spell around a dust bin which was used as our cauldron. At the same time as singing we made weird sound effect while dancing it was hilarious! Most of the time we would trip up… but at the end of the play we both fell to the floor with laughter.

didn’t see the lamppost in front of him, he ran straight into it and he had a huge lump on the side of his head bigger than a tennis ball he went to hospital but he was ok in the end just a bit slower than before.

Lucys Candy Floss Face Lucy laughs nearly all the time. Every single word you say, she giggles to herself. But, when she finds something really funny, her laugh turns in to a cackle and her face turns as pink as candy floss. She hides in her arms so no one can see her and turns bright pink like she has just been stung by a bee. I’ve never seen anything as pink in my life… Lucy’s candy floss face. By Melanie and brogan

Lucy’s Disaster

box of rackets. He tried to kick a ball, missed, hit the box of rackets, which fell on the floor, and Santiago also fell.

One day we were on our way to English class. Matthias was walking out of the door and Lucy tried to trip him up, she missed his leg and got her foot caught in the strap of Matthias’s bag. Matthias didn’t realize and he carried on walking. He dragged her half way down the corridor with Lucy limping on one leg. When she got to the end of the corridor Matthias pulled the bag really hard and she fell to the ground. She fell on her knees and she couldn’t stop laughing.

Where I will be in 20 years time Where I want to be in the future In the future I want to play for Hartlepool united because they’re the best team in the world they are the best. By Alex Compton In the future I will be on the motocross world championship tour riding on a KTM 950. Keiron I will be living in a giant Bunsen burner. Because in 2027 there wont be volcanoes, instead of volcanoes there will be Bunsen burners and the rich people will live in them, I will live there because I will be trillionaire. Because when you are the inventor of the first time machine you get to be a very rich person. In the future every body has always a good friend because you can buy them for 90 cent in the friendshop. If you start to get bored with them they change yours for a new one. I’m telling you this because in 20 years time I will create the first time machine, but also I will rent friends.

Mr. O´Connor 9O are a great form. They are, more often than not! Great to have around as a group of individuals. It is very nice to see more than one person voted nicest person and happiest person. This form have lots of potential and I wish them all individually the very best in the future. I will be here if they ever need any assistance in the future as well. Here´s two quotes for 90 to think about as they enter two decisive years of their lives… ¨We see only what we know¨ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) German poet, dramatist. ¨Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration¨ Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) U. S. inventor. P.s. 90 are still waiting for Ms. Penpraze to buy us chocolates due to 90´s excellent win over 9P in merits…and of course everything else!

9OAwards! Funniest Person: knock, knock, who´s won...... Marcelo!! (way out ahead with votes! I can´t wait for his next joke) Nicest Person: Manu / Charlotte / Laura (split decision, even tie!) 9O Favourite Teacher: Señor Belda (but special mention to Mr. Saunders who ran him close!). Einstein of the Year: Relativity Jaime (well out ahead!) Happiest Person: Claudia / Alejandra / Miguel Angel (shiny happy people!) Chattiest Person: Claudi(overwhelming winner!). Longlife Duracell batteries have met their match!! Pacman Hall of Fame: Miguel Sancho

Sananah: I wasn’t here at the beginning of the year but when I did come it was great. Year 9 was great. The subjects were good, the teachers were fun and I got to know a lot of people and I made friends, quick! Best time of year was when we all went to France and I made a lot of friends with the

Jaime: Year 9, a long, hard year for what? SAT´s, options?...NO! the really good thing of the year is coming very quickly……HOLIDAYS!!!!!

Manu: The year has passed very fast and the next year must be like this, with a good trip and the same people and the same tutor!

Ivan: I cant wait (until next year) until I don’t have to do any more subjects I don’t like!!

Daniel: The funniest moment on the trip to France was when I nearly fell into the Seine!!

Miguel Sancho: My best moment of this year was when we got to the top of the Eiffel Tower because I have never visited Paris before

Alejandra: The year has gone past very quickly, it´s been a funny year and also a very hard year.

Monolo: The best moment of the year was when ´someone´ farted when we were in ICT class in Geography in front of the teacher!

Miguel Angel: It´s been great. It has passed very fast!

Charlotte and Claudia: Paris…indescribable!! Our wake up calls by Madame Santerre, Ice skating, everything was incredible!

Y9P

Secondary Miss Penpraze

I think I have had the best behaved, smartest looking, calm, tutor group in Year 9. Particularly Victor who always has his shirt tucked in, cuffs buttoned up and never needs reminding! ......Ok, now lets be honest…What has it been like having 9P every morning for a year? Well, now that I have invested in ear plugs, it has been very relaxing. Nicky has been fantastic helping me to get my classroom prepared for the day and normally playing practical jokes on me, which I have become very wise to! Victor has been the caffeine alternative…definitely having the same effect! Vicente normally looks disheveled in the morning which always amuses me. Alvaro, Ged and Victor often seem to be up to some sort of mischief, normally involving a ball, paper aeroplane or something of the sort, more recently my Cornish Pastie magnet! Marta, Claudia and Maria can always be found madly gossiping about the weekend! 9P have been a fantastic Form group and great Geographers! I will miss the burst of energy every morning! Good luck next year 9P.

Itziar: We had fun in Geography when we had a lesson on France. We ate some French food, wore some French outfits and listened to French music. We also made a big wall display of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

47

Maria: When we went to Paris we had a terrific time! The funniest moment was when Marcelo was hiding under the bed and he nearly got caught!

Guillermo: I enjoyed saying the one sentence in the Litter Assembly that Miss Penpraze made us do, “So what can we do about it?”

Carlos: This was my first year at the school and I have had a lot of fun. Everybody has been very friendly.

Claudia: During tutor time, Maria and I did a dance to the song “I´m a Barbie girl”. We wore pink hats and fluffy scarf’s and sang beautifully. Miss Penpraze, Senora Guio and Senora Santerre borrowed the same hats for the X factor show!


9P Memories from the Year Marta: I loved the trip to Paris, but the best part of the year was seeing the teachers humiliate themselves in the X- Factor!

Victor: The funniest part of the year was when Miss Penpraze got stung by a Fishy and was in the Spanish Newspaper!

Vicente: I enjoyed creating a rap on water pollution for Geography. Victor and Alvaro´s rap was entertaining. Very tuneful!

Isabel- I love my Lengua lessons because Senor Esteban makes me laugh!

Alvaro: When we were in Paris we went on a simulator and Ged unfastened the girls seatbelts, they went flying! Real simulation!

Ged: We went to the Coca Cola factory and drank lots of free Cola. Fantastic day!

Nicky: Somebody (I´m not saying who) played a practical joke on Miss Penpraze and took out the lead for the computer in our form room. Miss Penpraze tried almost everything to get the computer to work (apart from re connecting the lead) and ended up calling Mr Lazaro! We were trying to contain our laughter. Another funny moment was when we kicked a year 7 ball during patio time and it hit Mr Belda in the head!

Rafa: I am always on time to tutor time!

Y10E

Secondary Miss Epps

How time flies! The third year with the same form group…how did you do it Miss Epps? I can hear you asking. Well, is was easy I would reply” Yes, every year my little darlings have grown up and changed in many ways and now in Year 10 they are all becoming young adults (some more than others, “He He”). We have had a busy year as they began their IGCSEs, they soon got into the routine of school, home and then more studying. Some of them have even begun to sit some exams this year and that includes me! They have been busy organizing work experience placements and preparing each other for getting out there in the big wide world. Fun interviews during tutorial time bring back memories of boys dressing up and some excellent role plays! New students have joined the form and have successfully fitted in as if they had been in the school for years. Our more long term members of the form continue to mature with the school. Alongside a few up and down moments this year has been a positive one with many fun memories. The students themselves have the pleasure of telling you all about their memories and fun times. I hope you all enjoy the pages of 10E and the fun memories of my little darlings. Thanks 10E for being there for me as well this year.

France! by Paige Stokes & Lydia Ourahmane The breeze whisks upon my face, Brushing past this open space, Three hundred or more meters high, My throat, my mouth, begins to dry Palace doors open wide, This golden gate within my stride, I take a few steps into the history, Of Paris and it’s surrounding mystery Photographs, memories, of a life before, Swirling, yearning of a breath no more, Disregarded and torn of what once was, No beginning, no end, no simple pause Sitting, soundless all alone, A creep, a creak, a haunting groan, Reverberating through my brain, Intensely cutting through my pain Walking down this silent hall, Each master piece stands so tall, The Mona Lisa in all her glory, We stand, we stare, we leave so sorely These gentle waters flow so gently, Sit and listen so intently, Watch the sky turn grey to black, The journey’s ending no turning back

Hannah, Jo and Megan Y10

As I’m leaving the school… I remember when I first came to the school in Y6, when the school had only 300 pupils that the new building, the football pitch, and some more features weren’t here. I’ve been 5 years in this school, but this is the end of my period in this school now that I’m leaving to another school. Through these 5 years, I’ve learned a lot and I thank all the teachers which taught me all I know. I also have to thank all my friends which have always helped me, and that were there in the good and bad times. I have to say that I had a very nice time here in the BSA and that I will never forget any of my friends that I have made here. Anton, Eduardo, Toni, Travis, Jordan, Sarah, Angeles, Cristina, Sara, Mercedes, Christine, Joe, I will never forget you and you will always be in my heart. Bye to everybody, and take care everywhere you go. And I will never forget the 2 school trips we did; Granada and Paris. Thanks a lot to everyone. By Adan Hulst

Y11K

Secondary Miss. Sue Kilner

For the past three years I have had the pleasure of being 11K’s form tutor; I have been greeted by their cheerful smiles, entertained by their lively banter and inspired by their morning conversations. Well, perhaps that may have happened in a parallel universe! Unfortunately I do not know enough about the social politics of my form group – I really have not done enough prying over the year – however, I do know that Year 11 certainly discovered their hormones this year. I have heard rumours of love triangles and Emily spent a fair amount of time sitting on Adrian’s lap whilst Maddie spent most of her time loitering in the corridor and outside the sixth form common room. I never did discover Scott’s true opinion about Royal Navy girls. There were also many interesting PSE conversations during the year when everyone discovered Adrian’s controversial views on sex and responsibility, which stirred many disapproving looks and critical comments from the girls. 11K is made up of some extremely talented students and big personalities. Since the beginning of Year 10, I have often been told by Miss Epps of the fantastic work that Esther has produced in her Art lessons and Mr Slater regularly tells me of Julia’s natural command of the English language. Personally, I have been impressed with Pablo’s debating skills – he could make a fine politician some day – in fact in some ways he reminds me of Margaret Thatcher; I am sure that she withdrew the milk from young children at one point during her years as Prime Minister, albeit not chocolate flavoured. There are many talented artists in the class: Dani Price, Louise, Esther, Stacey, Scott and Dani Fowler who all displayed their work at the Art Exhibition in April. I will most certainly miss my morning registrations with this group of lively individuals and I wish all of them good luck with everything they decide to do in the future. A word of advice Ashley for when you attend your first interview, try and avoid swinging on your chair! I will finish by sending my apologies to everyone in the form for ruining this year’s class photograph, but in my defense, it was a very windy day!

Here are some of Year 11K’s final thoughts, brought to you in acrostic style: I Go Crazy Studying for my Exams By Esther and Julia

Finally, what we’ve been waiting for Ignorant, no more Nothing gets past us Aren’t we great? Living it up in BSA Yearly, we succeed Enough to proceed Adventuring to the next level Retracing our steps to where it all began. Finally, the end is near In school, we decide to have a cheer Now the time has come A time to show ourselves Life is about to begin. Young teenagers strutting their stuff, Emotions are running high As the exams are getting near Results in the month after July! By Stacey, Frankie and Ashley

The end of the year Here we go Everybody, go team go! Final exams Indicate No-one knows About how to educate Lunchtime meals! Cause a fuss, Of course it’s all of us Underachievers No, no, no! Todos juntos Daring to go On different paths We shall walk, and Neverending doors we shall knock! By Louise and Emily

And then there was this masterpiece written by Arturo, Dani and Adri….

Yoyos are Extremely dangerous And Rarely Give Electrical shocks, but they are Lovely, although Expensive and Violent; Eventually they will get you in the Nose! Finally the year Is about to expire N’ we are All very sad, however Love is everywhere Year Eleven Expects some people to go, but others will do… A Level exams at BSA. Last day will be a Remarkable day that we will never forget! By Ambrosio


Monologo desde Vukovar Los cristales crujían y se fragmentaban bajo mis sucias botas. Levante la cámara hasta mi ojo derecho y tome varias fotos, aunque no pude oír el característico “clic” que hacia la cámara al tomar una instantánea, ya que quedo ensordecido por los disparos de la artillería y los tanques. Me encontraba en la ciudad yugoslava de Vukovar, era el 12 de Noviembre de 1991, y en esas fechas Vukovar era el peor lugar del planeta, el Stalingrado Croata, nadie quería estar en Vukovar, excepto algún que otro loco como yo. Camine calle arriba, andando sobre gruesa capa de escombros, ahora comprendía lo que significaba el termino que unos años después daría titulo a la novela de Pérez Reverte y que era usado frecuentemente por los reporteros de guerra para describir lugares como este, “territorio comanche”. También me había quedado claro ahora lo que significaba otro término aun más siniestro si cabe: “limpieza étnica”. La calle estaba llena de cadáveres, Vukovar era una ciudad de muertos. Llegue a un cruce de calles. Me pare a tomar algunas fotos. Mis dedos que torpemente presionaban el disparador de la cámara estaban agarrotados por el frío (el famoso general invierno ya se hacia notar en el frío noviembre de Eslavonia oriental) Escuche unas voces. De una esquina surgieron un par de adolescentes croatas, un chico y una chica, de unos trece o catorce años, corrían cogidos de la mano y miraban hacia atrás asustados. Nada mas salir de la esquina se escucharon unos tiros y cayeron al suelo, aparentemente sin vida. Les tome varias fotos, y pronto surgieron de la esquina los asesinos de los adolescentes, un pequeño grupo de paramilitares serbios, que estaban arrasando la ciudad. Me asuste, estaba cometiendo varias imprudencias al mismo tiempo, estaba solo, mis compañeros (los pocos que quedaban) estaban en sus refugios o se habían ido a lugares mas seguros (¡como me gustaría haberme ido a cubrir la batalla de la ciudad mediterránea de Dubrovnik en vez de este infierno!). Además me encontraba en medio de la calle cuando lo mejor es ir al lado de las paredes; no salen balas de los muros. Rápidamente levante la cámara para indicar que era un reportero extranjero, ya me había encontrado con grupos de guerrilleros como ese y hasta ahora no me habían disparado. Pasaron corriendo al lado de mí, iban hacia el sector controlado por los croatas. Uno de ellos me escupió despectivamente. Mi mirada se cruzo con la de uno de los últimos milicianos, iba armado con un fusil automático; el era muy joven, de unos dieciséis o diecisiete

años, en sus ojos solo vi odio e ignorancia. Ese momento quedo congelado en mi memoria. Entonces aquel serbio cometió una acción que hizo que mi vida diese un giro de 180 grados. Me disparo. Tres balas, creo recordar. Solo dos de ellas me impactaron, en la parte baja del tórax. Sentí como si me empujasen bruscamente al suelo. Luego un insoportable dolor. Lo primero en lo que pensé fue en ir al hospital. El problema era que se encontraba a casi diez manzanas, en la zona croata de la ciudad, estaba abarrotado de heridos croatas en mi situación y había muy pocos médicos. Me arrastre con dificultad hasta una pared, donde me desplome. Hasta ahí fue hasta donde llego mi instinto de supervivencia. Iba a morir. Di unas intermitentes y dolorosas bocanadas de aire, esto me indico que mis pulmones estaban intactos, lo que me daría unos minutos más de vida. Me ahorrare el describir que sentía físicamente ya que no es demasiado agradable. Y ¿Ahora que? ¿Iría al cielo? No, pensar eso solo seria engañarme a mi mismo, soy ateo. Se acabara todo, todo en absoluto ¿verdad? Será como antes de nacer, es decir, nada, ningún sentimiento, nada, todo se acabara, todo, ya no haría nada mas, ni sentiría nada más. Me entro un terrible e indescriptible miedo y empecé a llorar, aquí se acababa mi vida. Voy a morir. Intente consolarme, y pensé en la egoísta frase “siempre hay gente peor que tu”, solo tenia que mirar hacia delante y ver aquellos jóvenes croatas, la chica aun se agonizaba, Y los miles de Croatas que se habían atrincherado en el centro de Vukovar rememorando los gloriosos días de la Ustacha, ellos también estaban igual o peor que yo, dentro de poco morarían casi todos cuando los serbios obtuviesen su victoria pírrica. Pero, ¿porque me mato ese adolescente serbio?, ¿por morbo?, ¿porque si? Claro, solo soy uno entre miles de muertos, mi muerte solo costaba tres balas, ¿o me mato por que podría ser de etnia croata? Te matan sistemáticamente solo por ser croata, aunque supongo que lo más probable es que me mato por vergüenza, mataban a ancianos, quemaban aldeas, violaban a niñas, y yo lo captaba en fotos para que lo viesen millones de personas, yo si fuese aquel serbio sentiría una enorme vergüenza…. El ser humano es idiota, y por culpa de esta idiotez iba a morir. Somos lo suficientemente inteligentes como para fabricar un AK-47 pero lo suficientemente idiotas como para usarlo… ¿Por qué se mataban? ¿Vas a acabar con tu vida, con todo lo que tienes, solo por cambiar los colores de tu bandera, por la gran Serbia, por mover tu frontera unos kilómetros hacia el oeste, o por dejar de vivir bajo el yugo de los serbios?, por dejar de vivir bajo el yugo de los serbios… la gente solo se fija en el “bajo el yugo de los serbios”(o de quien sea) cuando la parte importante es el verbo “vivir”, ¡lo realmente importante es vivir idiota! Que mas da lo que in-

tentes conseguir si te van a matar y no podrás disfrutarlo, y por eso estaba yo así… por meterme en aquel inútil conflicto, aunque ya conocía los riesgos, ¿sabéis algo?, pensé que si moría me hubiese gustado morir sistemáticamente, de un tiro en la cabeza o por que me cayese un obús encima, así no tendría que estar planteándome todo esto, no sabría ni que estaba muerto, el caso es que ahora me tenia que enfrentar durante unos minutos a mi futuro… Iba a morir… Ya me quedaba poco a juzgar por el charco de sangre que había debajo de mí. Yo quiero vivir, aun me queda tanto por hacer, quiero encontrar el amor, quiero tener un hijo, quiero vivir mi vida. Aquellas balas representaban el punto final de mi historia, me dije a mi mismo. Bueno, mi dramático final llegaría tarde o temprano, ya fuese en Vukovar hoy o en el hospital de San Juan dentro de cincuenta años, aquellos disparos solo adelantaban las campanadas de mi reloj biológico, que llegarían tarde o temprano… pero ¿Porque morimos? Nacemos e inmediatamente estamos condenados a morir. Menuda mierda, casi deseaba no haber nacido. No hay dios ni nada de eso, eso se lo han inventado la gente en mi situación, es normal buscar excusas que te consuelen si estas en una situación de confusión y miedo como la mía, seria un alivio creer en la vida de ultratumba, envidiaba a los religiosos.. Intente pensar en otra cosa, levante mi cámara para hacer una foto, me sorprendió la fuerza de mi instinto profesional, pero mis brazos ya no tenían fuerza. El dolor se multiplico. ¿Como será estar muerto?, ¿Qué será de mi? Bueno, físicamente seré consumido por insectos, ratas y perros y probablemente acabare con la pareja de adolescentes croatas descomponiéndome en una fosa común, con suerte me encontraría la cruz roja, otro reportero o los cascos azules (solo si los ignorantes políticos decidían moverse de una puta vez para acabar con esta estúpida guerra) alo mejor me llevaban de vuelta a España y acababa en un ataúd decente. Pero lo que yo me pregunto es como será espiritualmente, o psicológicamente si lo prefieres… aunque lo más probable es que ni siquiera será, perderé todo tipo de consciencia y será así para toda la eternidad, ¿no? Este sentimiento de confusión e incertidumbre me daba un miedo terrible. Poco a poco empiezo a delirar y a perder la consciencia. No quiero irme, que alguien me ayude por favor, ayudadme, no quiero abandonar el mundo, la vida. Mi último recuerdo, además del sonido de los disparos y las explosiones, los gritos, el miedo y el dolor, fue un fuerte sabor salado en mi boca, proveniente de mis lágrimas. Arturo Zoffmann

Y11R

Secondary Mr. Roberts

For the first 10 minutes of every day I have had the pleasure of spending time with the ragtag bunch that was 11R, my form group. The shadow of exams loomed large over the class but their spirits remained high throughout (even during the extra hours of science lessons). What I will remember most about the class will be Robert’s gross exaggeration of everything, having to kick half of 11k out of my room every morning, the look on Andrea’s face when she realized I could understand her conversation in Spanish, Yasmin, Brittany and Natalie discussing TV as if it were real life and Jess walking in at 9.09am every morning, forcing me to take Tipex to my register. Trying to get the form to take part in just about any non-compulsory

aspect of school life was not easy. The School Council and the Christmas Fair spring to mind, as do the words “blood” and “stone”. That said, the amount of work the class has put in as the IGCSEs have drawn closer has been admirable. Some have even located the library, and rumour has it that as recently as last week, Josh was seen writing something down during a lesson. A more pleasant group of students would be hard to find and I have been constantly impressed by their mature attitude. Wherever they go from here, 11R have made a lasting impression, albeit one that will take years of therapy to remove!

We can’t believe we have finally finished Year 11! We have been inseparable since We9,can’t believe we have finally finished We Lucy haveleft been Year although things haven’t been the Year same11! since us inseparable in Year 10. since Year 9, although things haven’t been the same since Lucy left us in Year 10.

Just like to say a big thank you to ALL our teachers for helping us so much throughout Just like to say a big thank you to ALL our teachers for helping us so much throughout the the year. Especially for Mr. Saunders, who didn’t bore us totally to death during after year. Especially for Mr. Saunders, who didn’t bore us totally to death during after school school class (LOL) and to Mr. Wicks who let us move into his room without charging us class (LOL) and to Mr. Wicks who let us move into his room without charging us rent! rent! We’ll always have good memories!

Melissa Noura Ornella Pablo Sasha Saras Xuben

Instructions: Take fifteen whole students. Make them just as fresh and in clean uniform as possible. Now cut each month into twenty different parts; but don’t make the whole batch at once. Prepare one day at a time with these ingredients and with care and affection. Let them simmer in September for a while as there are some that need extra time to dissolve/ be part of the new plate. Add a bit of spicy “how to stand on just one chair”. Mix well into each day one part of work, one part of laughter, one part of illusion, and a dash of friendship. Add to each day one part of hope in good As marks, a pinch of emotion, a bunch of passion for life, a pinch of curiosity and a spray of “future”/year 13. Pour all of this into a pot and cook thoroughly over one year. After that they will be ready to be served into y 13, garnished with a smile and a radiant look. I hope you enjoy the dish as much as I have, full of different, exotic and rich flavours.

45 year from now... Sasha Leach

I am 64 years old, I am very rich now, following my sly scheme to steal all of Max’s money, he is now poor and I no longer know him. I am now living the life of luxury in Fiji, and occasionally get a flying visit from Amy and Noura who enjoyed five minutes of fame as pop stars.

Amy Bembridge

I lost 15 stones after my fourth divorce, brought out a yoga video, when I lost my teeth I got them replaced with diamonds. After four husbands I worked up 57 billion and become the world’s richest person. I didn’t need my university degree and have never used it. I never had children and will burn my heritage so no one can have it.

Xuben Xuren

I’m 85, and currently in the mafia inspired by Michael Jackson. I became black through many sessions of blackening. My boss is señor merda, and I aspire deeply to him. I’m also a part time stuntman in spite of my age, as I’m not afraid to die. My many years of being in the mafia have prepared me for my courageous death, probably goignt o occur during one of stunts replacing jet lee.

Ornella Bergonzi

I became a famous model and married a very rich man who owned the most famous hotel company in the World. I spent the days having chocolate baths, massages and riding around in my Ferrari. Later on, he died and I fell in love with another man, he was poor but I found my true love. We now live in the outskirts of Paris. It was a big change but we were able to adapt to it with the help of my seven sons.

Sara Deltell

I am 75 years old, 10 years ago I became a very successful business woman. Now I live in a big mansion in the country side with my husband. Every weekend my sons come to visit us with their families. I’m old but I still have lots of life to live.

Melissa Belak

I’m 82 years old and living in Kazakhstan. I have just signed a contract to play the lead role in the 2nd movie of Eragon. I shall be the dragon slayer called el Patas-Locas. However the one condition of me taking part in the film is to have surgery performed on me to make me look younger. Due to my failed botox and liposuction I look like this now…………………

Kiko Asin

I went to live to kashajsusbelikustan, due to problems with the law. I started a new life as a shepherd, I used to talk to my sheep everyday, RRRRRRR, PA I told them, SOOOOO……..MORLAKA! not years have passed and I m very old really dying, but I will always remember my lovely sheep !!!!! I ♥ SHEEP!!!!!!!!!!

Max Glover

I am 69 years old and flat broke, mainly because I was with a gold digger also known as Sasha Leach. I made all my money because I was the first person to fly to Uranus and that is how I got famous. I also heard a rumour that Alex had a sex change and I also heard that he is currently living with my ex-wife. I currently live in Skegness. Amy Bembridge lives in Argentina, married to Serg, and currently is a grandmother to 74 kids.

Noura Ourahmane

I am now 68. Me and Amy have had a hit single, it was so popular it set me up for life. Both got married. Twice. Have 4 kids, one of which is a tranny. Oh dear! I’m still in touch with Sasha, Max and Amy (who is still romantically attached to Chris) but he is in prison. I haven’t changed, apart from the fact that I’ve put on 15 stones.

Amy Ward

I am now 67. Me and Noura had a hit single that set me up for life. I’m married to Chris, but he’s in prison for fraud. Sasha had a mental break down, left the kids and took all of Max’s money. Alex is living in Fiji with us girlies as our personal trainer / stylist. Noura doesn’t participate she just eats. Amy B is in Argentina married to Argo Sergo, and has 6 kids. She’s still got nice hair, that’s because 3 of her grand kids are hairdressers. We don’t speak to Max anymore, he’s a loser.

Sara García

As of right now I am editor of Vogue magazine. I have five mansions located in the U.S. and I am married to a millionaire whoc is heir to Harrods, and we just won the lottery. Next week I am scheduled ot have plastic surgery with my husband. And later we will buy our own private island where we will spend the resot of our living days.

Julia Villaplana

After having worked the last thirty years as manager for one of the most prestigious soft drinks companies, I’ve now realised that my real ambition is to be a tattoo artist. I have recently formed my own tattoo business which I intend to expand. My daughters, son and husband don’t want me to continue working in this ‘inappropriate job’ as they call it; but I am determined to keep on despite their remarks.

Pablo Campos Giner

After studying in uni, I started working in several businesses. I was promoted so quickly that I decide to create my own company, which became really powerful. But as power corrupts, I ended up 30 years old in alhaurin de la torre for a couple of year. When I came back, I went back to my hometown, had a family and lived happily until I got bored.

Alex Nestor

THE RUMOURS ABOUT THE SEX CHANGE WERE NEVER PROVEN (although it is rumoured some photos exist in my safe) fijis quality! specially robbin maxs wife n his money - I pretend to be attracted to sasha but my true love is one of kikos sheep – is this wrong?

Dear Class, Generally, life since Christmas seems to have just flown by with astonishing speed and soon the common room door will close behind you forever. A new era is dawning and BSA life will be little more than a story or chapter in your past. Many of your memories will be the ‘fun and games’ of exam preparation and me nagging you about how using your free time is definitely the key to success. Despite possible fears of change I’m sure you’ll have a fabulous time pursuing your chosen paths; and, to allay and reduce your fears further many of you will have far lighter timetables in September with well below the number of classes you’re used to. I wonder where you’ll be in five or ten years’ time - these are matters for you to think and chat about, but I guarantee that life does not always turn out as you plan – which is what is really exciting! I wish you all health and happiness. Good luck. Take care. Mr Slater ps - It is a belief in yourself that is really important.
