Hallowe’en at Bellver
Primary students at Bellver International College celebrated Hallowe’en by dressing up in some very imaginative costumes and played some ghoulish games with their friends.
High school students took the opportunity to raise some money for the Bellver charities by bringing a donation to participate in the non-uniform day.
As classes continued through the day, everyone was looking forward to a well-earned half term break.
A group of pupils and teachers from Bellver International College visited the University Fair in Barcelona organised by The British Council. There, the pupils had an opportunity to meet with representatives from a large number of UK universities. They were also able to attend a number of information sessions on topics such as how to apply for a place in a UK university and the finance involved in studying in the UK. This proved to be a very valuable experience for all concerned.
The students also explored the beautiful city of Barcelona, visiting sites such as the Basilica Santa Maria del Mar, Casa Milia and La Rambla and even had a chance to do a bit of shopping in the L`illa Diagonal shopping centre.
This half term in Year 4 we have been looking at how our world wad formed and what causes natural disasters such as volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis etc.
The children created their very own model and presented them to the class. We took them outside to watch the volcanoes erupt with vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. The children came up with some very creative ways to showcase their models.
In preparation for our circus themed art expo the children in Year 4 created their very own circus animal masks. Using paper mache, paints, glitter and a variety of other decorative media they produced these wonderful designs.
28 pupils from Years 8 and 9 spent Friday morning in S`Albufera. Guided by Gaspar and Maria (staff from the park), they studied the topography, flora and fauna of the area. It proved to be an extremely exciting day. The children in particular loved the bird hides where they were able watch the varied and colourful bird life (the highlight being the Osprey catching a fish and the flamingos which had recently come to visit our shores). The park is a wonderful, free treat for anyone on the island and well worth a visit!
During their visit to the north of the island, the students from Years 8 and 9 had an opportunity to explore the caves of Campanet, where they learned about their history and geology.
The visit coincided with the students’ investigations into minerals and different types of rocks and complemented the material being covered in their textbooks.
