Working with our friends from the German school

We share our school building with a German primary school called DST. Each week we work with the children in Klasse 1 on some maths games, puzzles and activities. At the moment we are focusing on shape. These photos show us working.

Next week

Next week the year 5/6 are going to the Pyrenees for a residential.  At this time of year the  Pyrenees are not snowy so you can do walking and do activities – that is what we are going to do. we are all hoping that it will be fun.


I’m looking forward to going to the Pyrenees. It’s kind of exciting!


I’m looking forward to going away on the residential trip, because I’ve never been on one before.


I’m looking forward to it, because we will learn about biomes and the countryside.


Now’s your chance

So, Year 5 at IST have been making and using their paper fortune tellers. You might be wishing you could have a go with them too.

Well you can – sort of.

We created a Google spreadsheet which has many of our predictions on it.

Now you can use this to see how you will do in the school year ahead.

First pick a colour:  RED      BLUE      YELLOW    or    GREEN

Once you’ve chosen your colour, choose a number between 2 and 15.

Have you chosen?

Now you’re ready to try our Virtual Paper Fortune Teller.

Just one thing before you do. The Virtual Paper Fortune Teller was designed for Year 5 children, that’s children between 9 and 10 years old. It was also calibrated for children at the International School of Toulouse. It will work for you if you’re not that age or in that school, but you will need to adapt it to your own circumstances.

Have you still got that colour and number?

OK. Here we go…

Click on the picture below. Look in the column that’s the colour you chose and along the row that’s the number you chose. That’s your prediction.







Oh, and one other thing. Your future is not fixed. You can change what happens, making it better than you thought it might be for instance, by what you do. But that’s obvious.
