Infant Dates

Colegio-Privado-Internacional-Britanico-Ingles-Las_Palmas-Maspalomas-English-School-fechasDear Parents: a big thank you to all the parents who have their children at school on time each day to line up when the bell rings.

 

All the staff do appreciate this as it really does help the children to have a good start to the day to be in line when the bell rings at 8:30. We are now getting settled in to life at Milton House and the children are used to the routines and their new environment and it is lovely to see them enjoying their new surroundings.

We would like to thank Miss Nathalie who has been here since the start of term doing her teaching practice with Nursery. Nathalie has come over from Germany to do her practice with us, as part of the Erasmus scheme for EU citizens and we have really enjoyed hosting her and will miss her when she finishes on Thursday. It has been really interesting for our staff to hear how a nursery works in Germany and learn from her too!

Last Thursday we had a visit from an Early Years trainer from the UK, Cherry Hawker, from Dragonfly Training, who has been working with our Nursery and Reception staff looking at how to make the most of our new learning environment in line with current good practice in Early Years education. Also we have teachers attending her courses on Friday and Saturday, for all the English curriculum schools on the islands – it is an example of the dedication of the staff here at Canterbury that so many staff are happy to give up their Saturday to attend the course!
