Y4 Field Trip to: Cinquantenaire Museum

To end their IPC topic of ‘Temples, Tombs and Treasures’, Year 4 went to the Cinquantenaire Museum in Brussels.

We had an interesting tour of the Ancient Egyptian artefacts and treasures but the best part was seeing a real egyptian mummy! After the tour, we made our own clay amulets and had lunch in the beautiful Jubelpark, before returning to school!

Y3&4 Field Trip: Belgian Chocolate Visit

Belgium is world famous for chocolate and who doesn't like chocolate?!

Years 3 and 4 went on a culinary exploration to the Belgian Chocolate Village in Brussels where they attended a workshop with a real chocolatier and made their own chocolates! Hmmm... yummy! Talk about "hands-on" learning!

In the museum they discovered how chocolate is made and the journey from cocoa bean to chocolate bar. They even saw a real cocoa tree in the tropical greenhouse along with turmeric plants, banana trees and a vanilla bean orchid!

In the afternoon the students visited the Koekelberg Basilica. The basilica is listed as the 5th largest church in the world. They went all the way up to the panorama gallery at 52.80 meters just under the dome for a breathtaking view of Brussels. They could even see the Atomium from up there!

Carnival 2018

At Da Vinci, we encourage a love of reading. Since Carnival is all about celebration, we joined in the fun by celebrating a talented author and the lovely characters from her books.

This year students dressed up as characters from the books of Julia Donaldson! The Early Years and Lower School teachers read many of her books and all classes enjoyed exciting activities related to her stories.

These amazing and creative costumes in the photos were made by the students themselves or their talented parents. We saw many Julia Donaldson characters including the Highway Rat, scarecrows, ladybirds, the Big Bad Mouse, the Gruffalo, Stickman, witches and even the snail and the whale!

As per tradition, this year’s Mr and Mrs Carnival were selected and announced. Congratulations to the winners! Thank you to all the parents and teachers for their participation and for making it a fun-filled Carnival day!
