Year 4 Science Lesson!

Science has never been so much fun! Miss Shelley’s class explored every corner of the beautiful school grounds to find, identify and classify small animals. As well as the usual ants and woodlice, they founds snails, frogs and even a snake. They can now identify vertebrates, invertebrates, molluscs and arthropods.



“Oh, no!!  What has happened?  Miss Shelley, our classroom!  We can´t go in!”

This was meant to be any other, normal Tuesday morning at Novaschool Sunland.

As the photo shows, however, Year 4 teachers and children were shocked and confused upon arriving at their classrooms to begin their English lessons. There had been what looked like a robbery and the police had taped the room to prevent entry!

The TRUTH behind the staged “robbery” was that the teachers of Year 4 wanted to create emotion, inspire the children to speak and think and ultimately write about their feelings on encountering the scene, as part of our English curriculum.

The children were quite honestly brilliant; the descriptive words they came up with and their intelligent and insightful conversations immediately following seeing the scene, were a revelation.  Our aim was to inspire and enthuse and we think we achieved this!

Thank you, Year 4; fabulous children!

Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’

William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is full of fantastical scenes and strange happenings. Much of these strange things happen in the forests. In this lesson, Year 8 students were taken to the forest classroom to appreciate how it can be a mysterious and sometimes creepy place. There are unknown sounds, shadows, and smells everywhere. In ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, William Shakespeare takes full advantage of how the forest makes most people feel and so did Ms. Evans in her English literature lesson.




ICT Lessons

This term, Reception children took their first visit to our ICT room for their first computer lesson. During this term, Reception children will become experts in clicking and double clicking the mouse, dragging and dropping selected objects on screen and of course play a variety of online games to consolidate these skills.

Well done Reception…..Do you see a future Steve Jobs or Bill Gates amongst our children?!

Novaschool Sunland Rubén Ruzafa Triathlon Campus

For the second year in a row Novaschool will be organizing a triathlon camp in which we have more and more participants each year. A camp where great effort, the desire to improve, and mental strength are required for activities that imply great physical and psychological effort. The psychological effort and the controlling of the mind, are the hardest things to overcome in a triathlon.

The camp will be held at the British School, Novaschool Sunland, from the 16th-22nd of July; for boys and girls ages 6 through 17. We will have two different lodging options: internal and external. Internal, which includes housing and all the services and activities of the camp. External, the camper will participate in all the activities and then will return to eat and sleep. The camper will then return the next day with renewed energy ready for another fun filled day at the summer camp.

In this edition of the camp we will have the privilege to be visited once again by the superstar triathlete, Ruben Ruzafa, seventh time world champion, third time European champion, and who has won 29 XTERRA championships among other awards and championships.

You will be able to train with him every day and have the privilege of listening to his personal experiences throughout his successful sports career. We will also have a Masterclass with three very special guests: Iván Tejero and Patricia Bueno, both of which have placed in the famous ironman competition in Hawaii, and Daniel Pérez, who has won the championship of Spain, internationally three times and has won the championship of Andalucía 19 times. It truly is a privilege to have such talent as a part of the camp.

At Novaschool, sports are considered to be one of the main pillars in the education of our students. We will also enjoy wonderful facilities out in nature, where we will be able to exercise in an optimal way.

Bugsy Malone, the Show

Gangsters, love and music in the Cártama theatre

They’ve done it again! The students at Novaschool Sunland International left family and friends amazed after their performance at the Cartama theatre on 6 April. This year’s musical was a Bugsy Malone, a poignant gangster story set in 1920s New York, during the prohibition.
