The Primary school celebrated No Pens Day on Wednesday 26th October 2016. The idea behind ‘No Pens Day’ is to promote communication. Of all the skills we develop at school, the ability to communicate effectively is the one that has the most profound and potentially positive impact on our lives. Communication is at the core of what we do: at home, in work, at school and socially. So the students at BSB put down their pens for the day and picked up their language.

The students were involved in a variety of learning opportunities that focussed on the skills of speaking and listening. In every classroom, from EYFS to Year 6, the children were discussing, retelling, listening, acting, questioning, debating, presenting, reading, making, puzzling, designing, problem-solving, collaborating and much more. Communication was the key to open the door to learning!
