This year during International Week, the theme has been Brazil and the World Cup.
The children in Key Stage 1 have learned about past host countries of the World Cup. They have used their atlas skills to find out which continent has won the World Cup the most number of times. And have also completed World Cup timelines, designed mascots and used pictures to infer information about Brazil.
The children in Key Stage 2 have researched and prepared their World Cup bids. In arguing why their country should be chosen to host the next World Cup, they have practised their research skills and their powers of persuasion. The children then utilised their Humanities skills by evaluating the evidence of the presentations and debating them to reach carefully considered conclusions.
It’s been great fun for the children to learn about other countries in this way and we are all looking forward to the World Cup this summer!
International Food Fair
The Food Fair in primary ran on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and each year group had the opportunity to explore a range of different foods from around the world. The primary theatre was unrecognisable, covered with flags and decorations from all the countries represented.
Thank you so much to all the parents who cooked for the Food Fair this year. The children (and far too many teachers) were so excited to participate and truly loved the event. Thank you especially to the country coordinators and Sabrina Galasso whose tireless dedication and enthusiasm has helped make this year’s Food Fair such a wonderful success.
The children all came to school this morning dressed in national dress ready for the annual International Week Parade. Thank you to parents who came along to watch, and to those who were up late preparing national dress and patriotic accessories. As ever it was a kaleidoscope of colour and pageantry and fabulous morning!
