Dear Churchill Community,
News from Churchill Campus
March 2nd was Texas Independence Day (aka Texas' birthday) and MS celebrated by creating cowboys, bluebonnets, playing math and literacy cowboys games, and reading books about Texas! MS students have also drawn and decorated a turtle this week, after listening to the story of "Le Lièvre et la tortue." In Art, they are drawing a portrait "à la manière de" Pablo Picasso with his famous painting "Le portrait de Dora Maar."
CE1 students have finished writing their letters to their French penpals and they are on the way to France. They can't wait to receive replies!
Two CE1 parents, Hala Blackman and Rana Duwaji, had the kindness to deliver a talk to CE1 B & C on Eastern cultures. The students could learn about different countries, taste the foods and practice a traditional dance.
The CE1 Spanish classes had a special lesson in which they learned about the elements of art (lines, shapes and colors) this week. They did an interactive activity using these elements to draw the famous painting “The Scream” (El Grito) by Edvard Munch.
In French, the CM1 students have been working very hard on the creation of a newspaper. After studying newspapers and how to write an article, CM1A and CM1B worked together and "Le petit journal des CM1" will be published very soon.
CE2 Trip to Canada
The CE2 classes had a wonderful trip to Canada. They had the chance to participate in many activities such as cross-country skiing, Canadian hockey, snowshoeing and sliding on snow scooters. They also visited a village of elves and fairies. Overall, they had lots of fun. We will be happy to welcome them back on campus on Monday!
The CM1 students and the CE1 immersion students took the DELF this week. The DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française) is an official qualification awarded by the French Ministry of Education to certify the linguistic competency of candidates from outside France in the French language. The DELF covers four independent certificates corresponding to the first four levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Listening comprehension, written production, and written comprehension are the areas assessed in the examination. This prestigious certificate is valid for life and recognized all around the world.
