At the end of each year we focus on developing students’ Global Citizenship, their communication skills, teamwork and subject knowledge. This year four Teams of teachers put together activities to meet these aims.
International Week – Humanities
Humanities have been looking at current global issues related to climate change, sustainability, history and business. Each house has investigated one of these issues to write and produce a news report ‘live from the scenes’ within their designated countries, which were: Nigeria, India, Venezuela and Hungary. Students really took to it with gusto learning lots of new and interesting things about the countries, and with some great performances in front of the camera by students of all ages.
International Week – House Challenge
In mixed age house groups, the students have been using creative skills to develop a boardgame promoting community spirit and good citizenship. Through the creation of a board, playing pieces, objectives and interesting twists and turns, students have considered morals, values and principles of being an effective member of the local and wider community.
