Each group combined their items with other groups to find out who they thought might have left the items behind. We are getting excited to start out new topic and learn all about explorers! ...

Future Schools Open Morning

During our school open morning the children focused on the idea of Ambrosoli in the Future. The year 3s reflected on their prior learning about the history of schools in England and Uganda. They then planned a future Ambrosoli building using an ICT app and created a  poster presentation. The year 4s also planned a future Ambrosoli but for when their own children would be at school. They thought about how the timetable and lessons would change. They also created their school...

Tr Dinah came to tell us all about what it was like going to school in Uganda in the 1950’s and Tr Mandy came to tell us what it was like for her attending school in England in the 1950’s. We learnt a lot about...

Rivers in Action!

3 Bunyonyi made rivers as part of their Geography learning. They made sure their river showed all of the features they had learnt about, including; source, meanders, tributaries, main channel, mouth and estuary. We even had some paper boats to float down the channel when the source began to produce water! We also increased our understanding about the importance of gradient, in the flow of water. ...

Our Islands

Year 3 Bunyonyi chose an island in the world to research and create. They made fact files about their island on Word, detailing the human and geographical features on the island. The children then made plans of their island to allow them to make a ‘true to life’ model out of a mixture of materials including mod rock. They then labelled the features and got ready to present their learning to Year 5 Karuma. We very much enjoyed this project...

The children did team games, learnt volley ball, swam, obstacle courses, learnt about map reading for the IPC topic, celebrated birthday’s...

Island Life Entry Point

On Tuesday Mile Post 3 (years 3 and 4) had their new IPC topic Entry Point. The children had a taste of Island Life and partied among palm trees with tropical juice on the Ambrosoli Cruise Ship. Soon after starting the party a storm hit the boat and the children were left without possessions on a desert island. How would they find food and shelter? What survival skills would they need? If they were to send a message in a bottle,...
