  • Primary chocolate assembly 2

This week has been full of celebrations of Hungarian History, Performance Poetry and chocolate. We started the week with a series of presentations and songs by the children from Years 3,4,5 and 6 to commemorate the 1848 revolution and how it helped shape Hungary to be the country that we all enjoy living in today. The assembly was concluded by our Hungarian staff performing a wonderful rendition of, "A jó lovas katonának" for the children. 

On Tuesday we had the pleasure of Mr Paul Delaney, children’s author and poet (http://www.pdelaney.co.uk) coming to school to share his work with the children in assembly. He then completed a number of workshops where children were guided and inspired to create their own poems entitled, ‘My Country’, a selection of which will be sent to the Council Of British International Schools (COBIS) Poetry Competition. Although Paul was only aiming to stay for the morning, he loved the children and the atmosphere at the school so much that he stayed and worked with Year 6 too! This was a great way to help children think creatively about their work, be aware of their reading audience and understand the importance of drafting and editing to increase the quality and effectiveness of their written work.

Also on Tuesday, we were thoroughly entertained by musical and dramatic performances from Year 3 and their ‘Chocolate Assembly’. The enjoyment of the children was evident in how they sang and performed with great confidence and the smiles on their faces. Built into the Year 3 curriculum was one of our school’s mission statements of ‘Cultivating Responsibility’. This was developed by the children sharing their interpretations of ‘Fair Trade’ chocolate and how their shopping choices can affect the lives of farmers when paying them a fair price for their cocoa bean harvest.

After such a fun and stimulating week, I wish you a relaxing weekend.
