International Week

02 February 2015

This week being just three days, we decided to hold our International Week in the Primary School as a practical way to make the most of a short week and as a focussed and fun way to start the new term.

Why do we hold an International Week? We introduced this event last year in the Primary School, urged on by the CIS (Council of International Schools) inspection report we received in September 2013 which identified global citizenship as an area to develop further in the school.

In our fast-changing world, it is necessary for young people to acquire the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to adapt and to thrive. Their learning at school should prepare them for living and working in a global society. Indeed, global citizens is one of the elements included in our school’s Aide Memoire and therefore a fundamental part of BVIS Mission Statement which may be found on page 6 of the Primary Parent Handbook.

Rather than take a superficial approach to this, our aim this week has been for our children to develop their knowledge and understanding about one particular country, gaining an understanding of what it is like to live as a child in that country. Year groups have chosen the following countries to learn about: EYFS – The Philippines Y1 and Y2 – children chose either South Korea, New Zealand or Egypt Y3 – Australia Y4 – Japan Y5 – Chile Y6 – Turkey.

Our children have learned aspects of the language, arts, geography and history of the country, comparing their own experiences and country with that of another child. As a finale to the week, this afternoon we enjoyed finding about some of the learning that has taken place in our International Week assembly.
