This week has been a very exciting week. The children have been learning about persuasive texts and have been reading about different forms of persuasion. They have also begun to consider the impact of fair trade.
Of course we have also been on our annual residential. Despite the fact that our trip had to be cut short due to unforeseen circumstances the trip leaders (Mr Labelle and Mrs Davey) organised a fantastic experience for the children in our care. We had an amazing time at Bogor Botanical Gardens, where we enjoyed learning about ancient trees, fossilised ferns and wild orchids. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves during the day and then amazed us with their knowledge and expertise in the quiz and their rather flamboyant dance moves on the disco floor. By bed time everyone was absolutely shattered and ready to tuck up in their beds and reflect on the events of the day.
Many thanks to all the adults who took part to make this event a success, without their support, willingness and enthusiasm these events would not be possible.

Please feel free to contact your class representative should you have any general issues that you wish to raise. Please see your class teacher directly if your wish to discuss a child specific issue.
Please be aware that while we do encourage the celebration of birthdays at BIS, we are working towards becoming a healthy school. Cup-cakes and healthy snacks are acceptable, but ice cream cones, excessive amounts of sweets and chocolate are most certainly not. In future, parents that bring such products to school will be asked to take them home. Many thanks in advance for your co-operation in this matter and I do hope that you recognise the effects that eating such items during the day can have upon a child’s learning capabilities.
