Message from Primary

The opportunity to challenge yourself is something that we focus on throughout the Primary school, whether it be personally, socially or academically.

Our Year 6 students are being personally and socially challenged on their Year 6 trip by being away from home for 4 nights, which means they have their routines and norms changed. The students have to show independence in a residential setting, whilst still under the care and guidance of our excellent staff.  The ability to be responsible for their hotel room, the experience of different food and the challenge of not having family around them, means that this character-building opportunity is somewhat life changing. Most our students have been away from home before, especially as a lot of them have been on our Year 4 and 5 residentials. The Year 6 trip saw the students travel to Zhengzhou and have spent time in the Shaolin Kungfu School and Monastery. Mixing with local students and trying to gain a greater understanding of our host country’s history and culture has enabled to extend our students social horizons as they understand their positions within their own world. We are looking forward to hearing all about their experiences and their reflections on this special trip.

 

The opportunity to be a part of world class collaborations has been shared with the students throughout this term. As part of our MIT challenges this year, we have an exciting STEAM task based around science and photography. The students have been set the task of trying to capture a compelling photograph of something which can be explained using their scientific knowledge. They should explore different ways to capture the photograph, choose the best and then write a short explanation of which scientific concept can be shown in the picture. Examples of scientific concepts that could be photographed in everyday life could include evaporation, properties of materials, plant lifecycles or anything else that captures your child’s inspiration. Students have up until 6th December to submit their photograph and explanation to their class teacher or to Mr. Hussein via email. The best submissions from across the school will be placed on exhibit in C-block. Good luck and happy snapping!

The opportunity to perform on a stage has been enjoyed by our Year 1 and 2 last week as they sang to parents during a special Assembly. The students did excellently well. This demonstrates that performing can lead to so many positive aspects of wellbeing. The smiles and looks of achievement were clear to see and I know this was echoed by the proud faces in the audience. All of those students will have the chance to perform again closer to Christmas as Mr. Millo and the music department are planning the Christmas concerts and assemblies. Other performances this term to look out for are the Year 4 and 5 Production of ‘Aladdin’ on Tuesday 26th November (1:30pm) and Wednesday 27th November (6pm) along with the Early Years Christmas performance of ‘Away in a Manger’ on Tuesday 10th December (9am). By the end of the academic year, every child in the Primary school will have had the chance to stand on the stage and perform to their parents and peers, a truly ambitions opportunity.
