This week in Primary, we celebrated ‘Book Week’. Please read what our English Literacy Coordinator, Miss Malone has to say about our event.
“Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader!’ Book Week is one of our favourite events and this year it was even more thrilling with our theme ‘Monsters and Dragons!’ We were lucky to have two authors celebrate reading with us: the renowned author Adam Bushnell and Minh Anh who is actually a student at BVIS in 7S. Minh Anh fueled our passion for bilingual learning when she shared her science book with us, having translated it herself this summer. We loved acting, drawing and writing with Adam and all the children were excited to write tales of menacing monsters and dangerous dragons. Even the staff benefited through his Creative Writing workshop. The students took part in a range of activities including an escape room, a book swap and dressing up as their favourite character of course. Thank you for continuing to support your child’s reading at home!”
The International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21st. This day is devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace within and between nations. The theme of International Peace Day 2018 is ‘The Right to Peace – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70” , to celebrate the 70 anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (http://www.un.org/en/events/peaceday/)
This week, through their Global Campus initiative, Nord Anglia Education invited the staff and students across the Primary and Secondary sections school to come together to record a song for ‘World Peace’. The children in Years 4 to 6 all contributed towards the recording of the song ‘What’s so funny 'bout Peace, Love and Understanding’ by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. Many of the children sang the song while others played instruments. We shall be sure to send you a link to the video, once it has been completed, as the recording will be circulated throughout the NAE schools; a musical anthology to mark this special day. Well done and thank you to all of the staff and students involved.
And so that brings us to the end of another busy week. We wish you all a restful weekend.
