Year 1 assembly was about Benjamin Britten. He was born 106 years ago. He wrote an opera called Noyes Fludde so, Y1 wore animal masks and acted the part where the animals went into the ark, singing Kyrie Eleison which means “God have mercy” in Latin. The teachers had a surprise for all the children. Miss Catherine taught the teachers a song about a vio- lin, clarinet, kettle drum a horn and a trumpet. They sang the parts separtely and then put it all together. We all loved the performan- ce. “The Sorcerers Apprentice Nursery played percussion instruments and dressed up as magicians and brooms.They acted and danced to the music and perfomed for Y5R.They all had a great time! Year 2 learnt about Edward Grieg. They sang a song ca- lled “In the Hall of the Moun- tain King”, a song from the play Peer Gynt. They learnt the story of Peer Gynt and played along with the song using percussion instruments. Reception did a carnival of animals dance they had : elephants, swans, birds, fish, lions, dinosaur hunters. They made masks of their animal. Editor: Leon Year 6
The Classical Music day was a huge success. We started with 2 different surprises. Firstly, there was an assembly by Y6 about the different musi- cal instrument families. They also spoke about the composer Benjamin Britten. Some musicians visited: a trumpetist, cel- list and a clarinetist. The musicians played some pieces of music. Later there were further activi- ties: What the classes learnt 1.

Sometimes other teachers like Mr. Altuna talk to us about sports or Miss Laura tells us about extra -curricular clubs at school.

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 did a ques- tionnaire and we got different an- swers from drama club children. These are their different answers: Patricia P. Y6: My favourite play that we have done was Around the World in 80 Minutes. Manuela Y1: I really like dra- ma and I want to be a dra- ma teacher like my mother. Jimena Y5R: Drama is great fun because I like acting. Caritina Y2: I like preparing the shows and doing the shows. Pablo R. Y3: I like playing dra- ma games and acting. The post-performance Casilda Y4B: I like acting and party was dancing. great fun! Editors: Lilly Y6 and Alexandra Y5R

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- arities. 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 together. 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! Editors: Lilly and León.

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. Jairo: Rodriguez Visuerte. He was born in a small city called La Laguna,Tenerife. ST.

Christmas Fancy dress On the last day of school before the Christnas holidays, everyone had lots of fun dres- sing up! In the morning, we had a school assembly to ce- lebrate the children who had achieved 100% attendance for the term. We were also able to see everyone´s Christ- mas costumes! In Nursery, Reception and Year 1 the children were very lucky to have a special visit from Santa Claus! He gave them all a present and they told him what they were ho- ping to receive for Christmas. Christmas fair 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 sold: Nursery: Christmas tree pine cones and painted wooden tree decorations. Reception: Clay Christmas tree decorations Year 1: Material Christmas trees and Christmas biscuits. Year 2: Christmas crackers and Christmas cards. Year 3: Christmas tree and snowman magnets. Year 4: Snow globes and Christmas puppets. Year 5: Christmas wreaths. Year 6: Smoothie stall. Editors: María and Lilly Y6
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 raised 2,426.20 euros for the At the end of year we went to charity Caritas. the church to sing carols. For that each class needed to prepare a carol.
