The Year 12 students performed a practical in which they were testing for different cations and anions in the solutions.

Year 6 loved our trip in the rain to the River Sava as part of our learning for the Topic - 'River of Life'. We'll be going back again soon, when the river isn't quite as raging for some geography experiments.

Voting ballots are in - watch this post to see who wins Primary Head Girl and Head Boy.

To cap off a unit on string instruments, Year 5 students enjoyed a visit from special guest from Year 12. He played for us and offered us an up-close look at the electric guitar and amp, looping, and effects pedals. Some students even tried out the effects pedals themselves.

Year 2 'Learning to Learn'

Year 2 in their topic lessons where they have been 'learning to learn'.

Year 2 in their topic lessons where they have been 'learning to learn'.

This week in EAL classes we have been learning how to expand simple noun phrases by adding adjectives and prepositional phrases and turning ordinary sentences into extraordinary.

EAL Year 3 and Year 4

This week we have been learning how to write instructions. The EAL students decided that one can find most ''bossy'' or imperative verbs, time connectives, use of the present simple tense and topic related vocabulary in a recipe, therefore it took a different approach to learning and we baked the cookies that one of our BISL parents shared with our teacher Mrs Nerma. As one can notice, even the title of the recipe promises success, ''The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World''. And those who tried them had to agree with the statement above.

Last Friday, Year 9 volunteered in Year 1 during reading time. Since the weather was still warm and sunny, both classes went outside for guided reading. Year 1 proved to be very knowledgeable and Year 9 learned about oceans, forests and the Magic Key adventures from them. With a little phonemic assistance from Year 9, many pupils in Year 1 were able to read more than one book. For the final few minutes, Year 1 convinced Year 9 to join them on the Primary playground.

Early Years are loving our current topic, Patterns. We have been very creative - making patterns out of beads, pebbles, words, actions, blocks and anything we can think of! We have been reading about Elmer the Elephant, who has his own unique pattern. We have even started painting our own Elmer for our classroom. Oh, what fun!

For the upcoming Remembrance Day on the 1st of November, our students thought about their loved ones that have passed away during a minute of silence.

Congratulations to the students receiving Star of the Week and to the Emerald House for accumulating the most points this week!

MEPI Bronze Practice Expedition
On Saturday and Sunday, four of our number embarked upon a MEPI Practice Expedition in the Primorska region of Slovenia. At Bronze level, the participants need to complete an expedition over two days, camping overnight. An able-bodied group are expected to hike an average of 12km per day, carrying all of their equipment (clothes, tents, cookers, food, etc.). They need to plan their route, put up their own tents, and cook a hot meal in the evening.
The students chose the perfect weather for their challenge, and the backdrop of countryside, coast, and salt pans was fairly breathtaking! Although the second day seemed to be a little harder on the legs, the team completed a successful expedition. Well done everyone!

In Year 4, the students are focusing on "town and shopping" this block. They have discovered typical French groceries. They also succeeded to put together syllables in order to write the words properly! Félicitations!

Early Years had a fantastic trip last Friday. They visited the Škofljica Farm, a farm that cares for rescued animals. The children had the opportunity to meet, pet and learn about the various animals cared for by the famers. They met horses, donkeys, chickens, a bull, dogs and pigs. They also had great fun jumping in the hay! As well as meeting the animals, the children went for a walk in the forest and made (and ate!) bread around the campfire. A truly magical day!

Year 2 have had a fantastic morning creating spooky Halloween crafts with some of our parents.

The Science/Astronomy Club investigate the speed of light with chocolate and a microwave oven.

The Year 7 students are carrying on with their French pen pals project. They recently received a game made by the French students where they had to find out who is who in the class photo based on the accompanying description. It is fun to finally put a face to the name!

Congratulations to the IGCSE and A1 students of 2018/19 who received their official certificates today. Mr Batson celebrated them with a breakfast!

Congratulations to the elected Prefects, Head Boy and Head Girl in Secondary!
