surprises. Firstly, there
was an assembly by Y6

the composer Benjamin
Britten. Some musicians
visited: a trumpetist, cel-
list and a clarinetist. The
musicians played some
pieces of music. Later

In Drama Club we have rehearsed and then performed a
play by Charles Dickens called A Christmas Carol, to show to
the primary children and to our parents just before Christmas.
Drama club helps us to not be frightened or nervous when
we are on stage preforming for others. Lots of children from
Year 1 to Year 6 come to Drama and we all learn to work
together. It also helps children who are shy to talk on stage,
and it helps us to improve our pronunciation.

We had a magnificent trip to Córdoba and Granada from
                           the 24th to the 26th of October. We went with Mr Alejandro,
                           Mr Ian and two monitors (Irene and Sergio). We went there so
                           that we could learn more about al–Ándalus and to learn
                           about the Islamic culture. It also helped us understand more
                           about the past and how they lived.

                           First day (24th October):
                           At 8:30 am we all met up at Atocha station to go to Córdo-
                           ba by AVE. Once we got there we went to the Mosque –
                           Cathedral that had lots of different types of designs and
                           arches. It was really beautiful, and it was worth the visit be-
                           cause it looked so much better in real life than in photos!
                           Later we walked around the Jewish Quarter with our guide
                           Walada, who was a real expert in the area around the cen-
                           tre of Córdoba, with its super narrow streets and their peculi-
                           Finally we got to the hotel and sorted the rooms out, ending
                           our day with a lovely dinner and some funny games before
                           going to bed.

                           Second day (25th October):
                           As soon as we finished a delicious breakfast at the hotel, we
                           took the bus to Granada to see the Albaicín and visit the
                           fabulous Alhambra. First we started with a tour with a guide
                           around the centre, seeing the beautiful streets and facades
                           of Granada.
                           Then we arrived to the Alhambra, one of the most beautiful
                           places in our country. The guide got all of our attention with
                           the way he explained everything to us about those old times.
                           We were so impressed with the splendour of everything in
                           there: buildings, gar-
                           dens,     decoration,
                           fountains …
                           After a long but pro-
                           lific day, we got
                           back to our hotel to
                           charge our batteries
                           for our last night all
                           Last day (26th October):
                            After a filling breakfast we prepared our luggage before
                           heading off to Medina Azahara, which is the ruins of a vast,
                           fortified palace-city built by Abderramán III in the 10th centu-
                           ry in Córdoba.
                           That’s the last place we visited on our amazing trip before
                           going to the train station to take the AVE back to Madrid,
                           where our parents were waiting for us!
                           It was such a nice experience, with a perfect mix of culture,
                           fun, convivence and friendship!
                           We are looking forward to the next one!

Learning Music is very impor-
tant for St. Anne's School, so
we decided to create a Mu-
sic Club. We did this so that
children from this school have
the opportunity to explore
everything related to music.
On Wednesdays the children
learn all about musical notes,
rhythm, how to read music,
how to play percussion instru-
ments,etc. On Fridays some
children are learning how to
play the keyboard, which is
the first step before learning
how to play the piano.

We decided to interview one
of the teachers who are in
charge of the Music Club.

                                trip to Retiro Park in the Autumn term. They played games
                                around the park, learning about the environment and how to
                                look after nature. They also made footprints of different ani-
                                mals using clay, learning about their features.

Thyssen Museum
Year 2 went on an excursion
to the Thyssen Museum.They
learnt about mysteries in pain-
tings at the museum. They al-
so looked at paintings by Kan-
dinsky, the artist that they
have been studing in class.     Allotment activities
                                This term Year 2 had a visit
                                from Felix and Eduardo from
                                the allotment. They taught
                                them about plants that have
                                a fragrance and they made
                                their own lavender bags.

At the beginning of the Au-

archaeological museum. We
saw Egyptian artefacts and a
real mummy. They went on
this trip because they were
learning about Ancient
Egypt. Mr David gave us a
worksheet to draw and find
information about four differ-

from the museum.

                                 In St Anne´s school we held a Christmas fair to raise money
                                 for Caritas. Each class had a stall with different things to sell.
                                 These were all things that the children had worked hard to
                                 make in class. The children had lots of fun making things to
                                 sell at the fair and then taking part in selling them on the day.

These are the fantastic things
that each class made and

This year at the Christmas fair
we raised a lot of money for
charity, as we try to do every
year. At our fair, with all the dif-
ferent things being sold it was
much easier. It is very important
for us to realise that we are very
lucky, that we can go to a fan-
tastic school, and that there are
children who are stuck in bed or
have a very grave illness... We
