Year 1 had a wonderful walk around our local area. We needed to map a route to help Sunny the meerkat find his way from the Kalahari desert to our school. We knew he would be in Tafira Alta somewhere by now! We also talked a lot about the natural and manufactured materials we could spot along the way.

For an 10th consecutive year, the Spanish national newspaper El Mundo have included Oakley College in their list of the Top 20 International schools in Spain.
The selection is based on twenty-seven criteria including student grades, hybrid learning, value for money, but also considering areas such as holistic student evaluation, targeted interventions from Teaching Assistants and even the quality of lunches.
After a particularly challenging year for all, where our resilience has been tested, we would like to thank the combined efforts from everyone in our dedicated team; teachers, administration, IT, auxiliary staff, management, parents and the students for working so closely together.
We will keep working daily on anything and everything related to making school life even better. From improving internal office communication systems, to trialling new student interventions, introducing seasonal ingredients or implementing new student software. We work hard every day making hundreds of small improvements that add up to offer the best learning environment possible to our students.

On Friday 26th February, children took part in the international Stand Up to Bullying Day. The children wore pink accessories to show their support. Children looked at the different types of bullying and what to do if they are being bullied. Classes completed activities about cyber bullying, being included, friendship and equality. The children have learnt a lot.

In 4A we have been learning some new badminton skills in PE. In art, we have been planning and designing a rainforest collage ready to make soon. And although we recently won the Times Tables Rockstars competition, we still need to practise so we have been using our devices when we get the chance.
The Owls have been learning about colours and shapes. The children have developed their mathematical skills by constructing and arranging shapes in different ways, sequencing and making patterns with cubes and exploring the colour investigation corner. The children have also taken their learning outdoors. To learn the names of the shapes, they have used spray bottles to squirt water at the coloured shape mats. They have also practiced scooping and pouring the coloured water beads to fill different sized containers. The water beads changed size depending on the weather which was an excellent way for the children to learn the difference between big and small.

On Monday 30th November, Y5 had a very special meeting on Google Meet with an astronomer in New Zealand! Dave Owen is an astronomer, teacher, owner of a space museum in New Zealand and fanatic space enthusiast. He has been passionate about space for as long as he can remember, and he loves sharing his enthusiasm with others.
The children learnt more about Earth’s position in the Solar System and wider Universe; days, nights and years on Earth and other planets; the night sky; spaceflight (including robotic space probes and human exploration of space) and the International Space Station.
Here are some quotes from the children:
“It was a fantastic meeting and we all learnt so much about Space that we didn´t know”
“My favourite part was seeing the astronauts in a Space Station and how they moved and what they ate!”
“I liked learning about Black Holes around our Galaxy, and also in the centre of our Milky Way – the Super Massive Black Hole”.
“Learning and seeing the satellites and the Internation Space Station was really interesting”
“I liked learning about why Mercury was colder than Venus even though it is closer to the Sun. This is because it has no atmosphere or clouds (like on Venus) to hold the heat in.”
“I hope that one day I can visit Space!”
“It is strange that stars have names like Stephenson 2-18 – which is the biggest star we know of SO FAR.”

This week, the Ducks have been focussing their learning on shapes and colours with Elmer the Elephant which is our story of the week. We made a large Elmer collage for display, jumped and stomped on different shapes as we said their names, fed Elmer some peanuts, counting them as he ate them, amongst many other activities. We have also talked about friendship and how Elmer was different from his friends but everyone should be treated with the same respect and kindness.
Last weekend the Third International Halloween Regatta in the optimist mode took place in Playa Blanca – Lanzarote. Adriana Arencibia, sailor for the Real Club Náutico de Gran Canaria, achieved a deserved second place in the Under 13 Female category.
