Welcome to BVIS Secondary activity update
Year 8 are learning about the continent of Asia and this week have learnt about its population. They’ve been comparing different country’s population and exploring why some are so densely or sparsely populated.
Year 12 are learning about the urban heat island effect and why cities are much warmer than their surrounding rural areas. They’ve come up with great ideas of what we can do to reduce this issue of city areas being too hot. This includes having garden rooftops and developing unused buildings and turning them into parks and water areas.
To celebrate Shakespeare Week the English department hosted Shakespeare Performance Workshops for years 8 and 9. The students practised performances of famous scenes from William Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’, having the opportunity to perform them on the school’s stage. We were so impressed by their fantastic interpretations of each scene, dedication to learning their lines and confidence when performing.
This week, KS3 have been celebrating Shakespeare week in their Music, Drama and English lessons. Pupils have really enjoyed exploring themes, plot and language. There will be work showcased on Facebook over the next couple of days!
Year 12 have made a brilliant start to their devised performance this week. They are created a piece focused on the theme of migration and are challenging themselves to deliver stylised movement and vocal work.
I hope you all have a great week ahead.
