Buddy Week - 26th September 2016 to 30th September 2016
Last week was 'Buddy Week' at Gordonbrock. All classes are 'buddied up' with another class in the school and at one point during the week they meet to take part in a joint activity.
The children benefit in many ways from opportunities to work with children of other ages and we think it is a great way to bring our school community together. Talking to the children throughout the week, I was impressed by how enthusiastic and complimentary the children were about their buddies. There will be other times during the year when Buddy Classes meet — look out for more photos!
European Languages Day
On Friday 23rd September 2016 we celebrated the European Day of Languages at Gordonbrock.
The Topaz children were introduced to some Polish by their TAs, Mrs Canbulat and Mrs Clarke, the Sapphire classes learnt some German with Frau Savage, the Emerald phase learnt French with Madame Ousbey and the Aquamarine classes had a taste of Spanish with Señora Gilmore. In addition to these language taster sessions, all children learnt a little bit about the country’s culture and had the opportunity to sample some traditional foods.
There was a magnificent buzz throughout the School and we hope that all the children enjoyed Gordonbrock’s European Day of Languages.
