Infant Newsletter

Colegio-Privado-Internacional-Britanico-Ingles-Las_Palmas-Maspalomas-English-School-circularDear Parents: welcome back to the Summer Term at Milton House, we hope you all enjoyed a pleasant Easter Holiday.



At the moment we have some students with us on teaching practice, Miss Brigitte in Pre-Nursery, Miss Carla in Nursery, Miss Yraya in Reception and Mr Daniel in Year 1. They are helping out in the classes and at playtimes and the children are enjoying working with them! They will be with us until early June. Also this term we will be welcoming some of the older Secondary students who are coming to do some work experience in the Infant classes, as they do each year.

This week we have been celebrating "Book Week" in school and doing lots of activities related to books and stories. If any parent would like to come in to school over the next few weeks and bring a children's story to read to their child's class (in English or Spanish) at the end of the day, please speak to your child's teacher. The children love hearing different people reading to them and we want the children to grow up with a love of books and stories so we would greatly appreciate this!

This term is quite short but lots of things are going on so we would like to inform you of the following important dates for this term:

As the weather is now getting warmer, Year 1 children may come to school in their summer uniform (school shorts, PE t-shirt and white trainers) each day from Monday 29th April.

On Friday 31st May, as we will be celebrating Canary Day, all the children can come to school dressed in typical Canarian costumes.
We would like to have some workshops or demonstrations for the children to learn about their Canarian heritage on our Canary Day in school. This will be a day just for the children, but if any parents have any skills such as traditional Canarian dancing, playing the timple or other typical instruments (or know of a folklore group which may like to come and play for the children), Lucha Canaria or any other traditional activity which you think that the children might enjoy seeing or taking part in, please speak to me!
