ISSUE 2 - 2010 PRIMARY-NEWS FOUNDATION STAGE - ‘WORLD MATHS DAY’ BOUNCE AND THROW EVENT - MISS WILSON, MISS NICHOLSON, MISS MCGINLAY, MISS GREENWOOD & MRS LIPPINGWELL
The children in Foundation Stage got together for an exciting Sports afternoon to raise money for Elliot George. We had a range of activities from bouncing on the mats to throwing a beanbag. The children in Reception showed just how well they can count by counting all the way up to 100. Nursery was fantastic at bouncing and some children could even bounce for longer then five minutes! Running was Pre-nursery’s best activity and they could run as fast as lightning! We all had lots of fun cooperating in this event and can’t wait to do it again. 5

We were busy, busy, busy all day and were quite sleepy on the journey back to school! 6

a s s em b l y . In RE they had been learning about the parables Jesus told. For the assembly they acted out ‘The Good Samaritan’. “I was a narrator and I spoke very clearly”, said Leah. The parents enjoyed it so much, they asked the children for an encore! “I felt very nervous when I was speaking in front of the audience”, said Alex. The children sang a song, and Sofia sang part of it on her own. “ I felt very nervous”, Sofia said afterwards. “I enjoyed it when Sofia sang”, said Francesca. The children really enjoyed putting on their show. “I want to do it again!” said Alvaro. Miss Hill and Mrs Waller thought that the children
looked wonderful in their costumes. They were very proud of the class.
Thank you to the parents for providing the costumes, and thank you for coming to watch.

We had a pretty exciting day at the Recycling Centre. In our visit, the children learn the importance of our actions now and the consequences for the future. To our surprise we saw that this waste/recycling center is the cleanest (also no smell) dump weâ€™ve ever gone to. There were so many bins, but very well organized. The children saw many things that could be recycled, learn how to recycle them and realised amongst other

celebrated February 28 and commemorates the February 28, 1980 referendum on the Statute of Autonomy of Andalusia, in which the Andalucian electorate voted for the statute that made Andalusia an autonomous community of Spain. In the morning, Primary had a fantastic procession of all the pupils from Pre Nursery to Year 6 in the Sports hall. All the children looked fantastic. Following the parade we were treated to a brilliant presentation on beautiful Andalucia by the Primaria Espanol Department with some brilliant acting and dancing from many of the children. Thank you all so much!!
ISSUE 2 - 2010 PRIMARY-NEWS CELEBRATIONS - ST. PATRICKS DAY Laude San Pedro Primary celebrated St. Patrickâ€™s Day. St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, this religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feastâ€”on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.

The Ball 2010 is traveling to the Opening Ceremony of the Football World Cup in South Africa from Battersea Park, London (where the first FA-rules football match was played). In doing so it enriches the competition with a symbol that matches the spirit of the Olympic Flame. Along the way it is being played with in stadiums and in the streets by whomever it meets. Those who kick it can sign it and already it has collected hundreds of signatures including those of students and staff at Laude.
Laude Pupils showed The Ball a thing or two on its last day in Europe before it headed across The Straights and into Africa. Andrew Aris, traveling with The Ball, spoke to secondary students during assembly and one volunteer, Lewis demonstrated his football skills before adding his name to The Ball. In the gym, Year Two fell upon the ball and an enthusiastic kick-about ensued. The students then lined up to sign The Ball and wish it well on its way. Find out more about The Ball and its 2010 trip on its website theball.tv.

All students seemed to enjoy this opportunity and all of them visited the stands and talked to the councilors to gather information to help them decide on their future choice.

their adventures pupils discussed their experiences and then produced a piece of
trip. Great fun was had by all and the exercise proved to be an exciting and experiential way of dealing with 'The Great Escape'.
On Tuesday 9th of February, Year 7 had a meditation lesson. This involved bringing in cushions and then lying back on them whilst Mrs. H. Palmer read a script. In this PowerPoint would see just how your imagination flows. These are just some of the photos that were taken of Year 7 as they settled down to begin their adventure. Imagination is a powerful thing, let loose and anything is possible. From your own special place to, maybe, a tropical rainforest. It’s up to you, all you have to do to go on a journey is relax and imagine. You could go anywhere!! Meditation is great fun but it also has some positive answers afterwards, for example Year 7 not only had a FANTASTIC time, but it helped us to become more confident in ourselves. It also helps with story writing.

There were, in total, 4 teams: y7 and y8 girls team, y7 and y8 boys team, y9 and y10 girls team, and y9 and y10 boys team. The y9 and y10 boys team won their tournament against Sotogrande A and Sotogrande B. The team consisted of 6 students: Karim (y9), Christopher (y10), Jorge (y10), Julio (y9), Alvaro (y9) and Nicolas (y10). The first match they played was against Sotogrande A, and although Laude San Pedro were considered to be worse, they managed to defeat the local team with a close result of 0-1. The goal came after a great pass from Jorge to Nicolas, who managed to score. The second game was against Sotogrande B. After having beaten the A team, Laude San Pedro were the favourites, and managed to win, this time, with a much clearer result of 1-3. Goals from Nicolas (2) and Alvaro. After the great tournament they played, and the quality in their game, Laude San Pedro y9 and y10 boys team deservedly won the tournament.
