English themed week in Secondary

Friday’s Poetry Event, officiated by Dr. Helen Wing with an audience of year 10s, rounded off what has been a tremendous week in the English department.  Students across Key Stages 3 and 4 performed their own original slam poems, and were presented with medals by BISB parent, novelist and journalist, Mr Lebor. This was followed by a stimulating and fun workshop led by Dr. Wing. Indeed, across the week, she managed to work with every student from years 7 to 10, and had them on their feet reciting their own work inspired by such diverse items as cheese graters and bunches of grapes.

Each day started with riddles and dingbats to whet students’ appetites for the array of activities on offer each day at lunchtime in the Atrium.  Black-out poetry, a literacy carousel organized by year 7,  a Shakespeare quote quest and the dress up day photo booth were some of the events that saw the atrium buzzing with activity.  One fixed feature was the Poetree where staff and students hung their favourite book titles and lines from literature.

Thursday saw the Boscars presented with great aplomb by Mr Simon Bird dressed as Mr Darcy. Congratulations to the teams behind the winning films in our second ever Boscars Award Ceremony:

Best Sound:  Trapped

Best Editing:  Camouflaged

Best Picture:  Love and Hope

Also thanks to the upcoming young film maker, Hajni Kis, for judging and presenting the award for best picture.

All in all, it has been a fantastic week aided by the great support from staff, students, Miki and Gabor and his team.  We look forward to planning it for next year.

English themed week in Primary

From Harry Potter to Sherlock Holmes, from Alice in Wonderland to the Dork Diaries, the primary corridors were filled with our favourite book characters on Thursday to mark World Book Day.  Children were busy working their way around the ‘name that character’ quiz at lunchtime or matching the first lines to famous children’s books. It has been a busy week in Primary, with classes buddying up to read with each other, character hot-seating, poetry flash mobs and class heats for the performance poetry final on Friday.
