‘A Snowman at Sunset’ was the title of the British Vietnamese International School Early Years’ Christmas production that was enjoyed by all who watched it this week. On Tuesday, Year 1 and 2 made their way to the EYFS auditorium to laugh, sing and clap along with our youngest children in the school. Then on Wednesday Year 6, and most of the parents, attended the main show.
It is clear all of the children have worked so hard to learn their lines and deliver them so well. Many of the children did not actually need the microphones provided; they spoke so enthusiastically and with great volume, a lesson for many of our older children on how to project your voice and be heard. Children at this age have no inhibitions, they are not self-conscious, and they are just beginning their learning journey and exploration of life. They want to do well and this needs celebrating and nurturing. This is something our EYFS staff are so expertly skilled in doing. All parents audience witnessed just how much the teachers and staff care for the children and see how early child development is being enhanced. Every child participated and every child enjoyed the part they played, in spite of a tear or two at times; some are only two years of age!
We all thoroughly enjoyed the story and how the massive snowman came to life. Thank you to all the EYFS team for their hard work and dedication and well done to all the children. As we might say if this was on stage in a theatre, bravo! We look forward to enjoying the performance of Year 2 next Tuesday afternoon and we hope to see as many of you there as possible. All the details have been sent to you by the class teachers.
Have a great weekend.
Mr Nicholas West – Head of Primary
