NEWSLETTER www.tbs-madinaty.com or find us on Facebook Issue 10 Term 2 Stan Cullimore’s visit was an exciting day. The children enjoyed listening to Stan’s stories and to him singing funny songs, particularly the song about teachers’ favourite words. The Year One, Two and Three children were lucky to have Stan enter their class to teach them how to make their writing more interesting. Page 2 NEWSLETTER Nesquik Success! We are sure your child told you how much fun they had on our Nesquik day. All the children and teachers had a brilliant day. The range of activities was impressive. They particularly liked trying to knock down Mrs Weeks, Mrs Husain and Miss Morris and playing musical chairs, but we think eating cereal and drinking chocolate milk was the highlight for everyone.

Year Three had a busy and exciting term. In English, we have been looking at ‘Myths and Legends’, as well as learning some valuable lessons from fables. We have also been reading adventure and mystery stories and looking at how to build suspense in our writing. In Mathematics, we have been doing useful work on ‘Data Handling’ and have taken a survey of car colours in Madinaty, created a frequency table and then represented our data using bar graphs and pictograms. Through Science we have been learning what foods are healthy for us and the effect carbohydrates, protein and fats have on our bodies. Our IPC topic of ‘Shaping Up’ has been very interesting. We have learned many things about the human body, including the functions of muscles and bones. Do you know where the quadriceps are? We do! Our trip to The Family Park was great fun! We hope to visit again soon. Karim, Youssef and Seif riding a giant duck. Mohamed, Omar and Yassin enjoying The Family Park. Page 5 NEWSLETTER MONZOO TRIP Mrs. Bouamra has made a new friend.

The children made crisps, candy, coca cola, hotdogs, cheese and much more. The children also visited other areas within Kidzania, such as the hospital, fire station, beauty salon and supermarket.
