In Class Activities
In keeping with our 10 year anniversary, the theme for this year’s International Week is the number 10. In Key Stage 1, the children will be engaged in a variety of activities designed to increase their awareness of the world around them. The children will be learning about 10 landmarks around the world. They will also present the 10 best features of their home country to their classmates.
In Key Stage 2, the students will be looking at currency around the globe and designing their own $10 note featuring important people or landmarks from their country. As a class, they will also engage in research and debate to decide upon 10 people who have changed the world. These activities are designed to develop critical thought in our students, encouraging them to present and support their own ideas, whilst considering and evaluating the ideas of others.
International Food Fair
Thank you to all of the supportive parents who have kindly offered their assistance with the Food Fairs this year. There are 21 countries represented and the teams are all ready to offer some delicious food for all the children. The event is one of the most eagerly anticipated of the year by both children and staff, and many thanks again to all those involved in the set up and running of the stands, as well as those who have selflessly taken the time and effort to prepare delicious food for everyone to enjoy. Your assistance is truly valued and appreciated!
