BWI Collegiate Students entertain us with their Storytelling

collegiate-storytelling-march-2015 (6)On the day before World Book Day, we were lucky enough to have a visit from 19 Year 9 students from British West Indies Collegiate. The whole of Key Stages 1 and 2 were treated to three different dramatic performances carried out by the students. Head of English at the Collegiate, Miss Tessa Rankin, explained that the pupils had used traditional fairy tales as their starting point, but had chosen to intertwine different tales in their own completely independent and individual ways. Each group performed in costume to Years 1 & 2, 3 & 4 and 5 & 6.

The plays were written entirely by the students and were a true delight to watch. Not only were the students incredibly brave to come to a different school and perform, they were also extremely witty and dramatic. Great budding thespians!

Inviting friends to help bring History alive!

Design a Poster – Why should we care about sharks?

tci-sharks-mar-2015Did you know that sharks are an important top predator in the ocean and keep the ecosystem in balance? During the week of March 26-29th, 2015 Rob Stewart: director, photographer, and conservationist will be making a special trip to TCI and our older students will have the opportunity to hear him talk about why we should care about sharks? Rob is an active shark advocate. He participates in many global shark conservation campaigns and will be here in TCI to increase education and awareness about the importance of sharks in our environment.

Keeping cool and protected under our new shade

shade-jan-2014What a wonderful surprise for the start of our new term – the shade is up!

Having shade over this much loved, but rather hot area will be greatly appreciated by children, teachers and parents alike.

Under the cool of the shade, protected from the sun, this expansive area will now be able to be utilised much more throughout the school day by all of the classes, for a variety of activities.   How fortunate we are!

This has been an immense task and we would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone involved along the way…. Allie Guest Franck, Natalie Zaidan and Haley Weldon, Peter Karagan, Roland at Tibor’s, David Doherty and Jose Ovando.

Both the grass and the shade are PTA funded and installed ventures and would not have been possible without donations of funds, expertise, time and labour from our PTA members and community supporters.  THANK YOU from all of us at Provo Primary.

toy-drive-2014Thank you everyone for your kind donations of toys.

Kindergarten will Remember, Remember the 5th November!

k-bonfire-night-nov-2014 (11)The week following Halloween was an exciting and busy one in the Gecko Classroom! Children learned about and prepared to participate in the school’s Bonfire Night celebrations on Wednesday 5th November.

As part of our topic Why are we all so different? we have been taking all opportunities to find out about and enjoy different festivals and celebrations from around the world. Learning about the history and the present day traditions of Guy Fawkes Night led to many questions and gave us lots to explore!

Children learned about safety around a bonfire and created firework art from glitter paints. As part of our Shapes project in maths we all tried to re-create firework displays by combining colour and shape.   As the children created their work, they explained what they were imagining and thinking about.

Please click on ‘read more’ to see photos of our fireworks and Guy Fawkes masks.

Provo Primary are potty about Potcake Place!

yr-2-potcake-place-oct-2014-1-4.jpgAs part of our All About Me topic, Osprey class were lucky enough to visit Potcake Place. But why? Well, in Year 2 we have been learning how to look after ourselves. We discovered you have to eat a balanced diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly.

So, why Potcake Place? Well, we wanted to know if puppies are the same. Do they need a balanced diet? What is a balanced diet for a puppy? Do they need 10 hours sleep like we do? Do they need to exercise every day?

Luckily thanks to the amazingly helpful, informative and patient staff at Potcake Place we found out all the answers to the above and LOTS more!

School for Field Studies Marine Morning!

sfs-oct-2014 (3)

A couple of weeks ago, Years 4, 5 and 6 were fortunate to spend several hours with a group of students from the School for Field Studies (SFS) from South Caicos, carrying out a range of fantastic marine based activities.

This was part of our ‘Keeping Healthy Week, which focused on ‘Healthy Communication’.  What was so special and so perfect for our communication focused week was that the children were interacting with a large group of young adults (18-20 year olds) in small group situations. It was lovely to see how well the children responded to the group of SFS students and how interested both sides were in learning from each other.
