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!

Years 2 & 3 Field Trip: Peerdsbos

The students from Years 2 & 3 were able to admire the beautiful autumn colours during their forest walk in Peerdsbos.

Students studied a micro habitat and classified the interesting creatures who live on the forest floor.
They looked at the four different layers in the forest and were lucky enough to spot a red squirrel! After a picnic lunch and a stop on the playground, they teamed up to create land art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.


What a lovely way to enjoy the sunny weather!

Clean School, Clean City Project!

The city of Antwerp invited us to join their Clean School Clean City Project. Our children from Y1 to Y4 enjoyed two workshops that encouraged them to grow into responsible and caring adults.

Fist, the Litter Princess told them all about how her country used to be a very dirty place with lots of rubbish everywhere. Thankfully, they came up with the solution of sorting the garbage into different bins and recycling the waste into new products. We were also given useful tips of how to produce less litter. Simple things like using a lunch box or bringing a water bottle really do make a difference!

The second part of our workshop was all about keeping our fantastic city of Antwerp clean. Children immediately took action and started sweeping the street with mini-brooms, but the most exciting part was sweeping the street with the sweeping cars! What a great way of learning about respecting our environment!
