A Wider Audience

Welcome to the Head of Primary Blog! This month sees the deadline for the annual Nord Anglia Global Campus Writing Competition and earlier in the month, the NAIS Manila’s Got Talent Final. I would like to use this opportunity to highlight this event as well as discuss the wonder and joy of sharing any artform, albeit a gallery of paintings or an anthology of poetry.

In Year 5, we have been exploring the written art form of poetry and how it can convey emotion and feelings within its freer from the more traditional genres of writing. I often compare poetry to the text equivalent of a painting where a smattering of carefully chosen words or phrases take the place of paint strokes

We have used our Topic context of World War One to look at famous poem examples as well as use photographs from it to stimulate our own stanzas. This has then led us into the Global Campus Writing Competition where this year’s theme is looking 100 years into the future. The ‘Great War’ happened just over 100 years ago and so provided an interesting counter to this focus.

  • Y5 Zhafira - Poetry
  • Y5 Samarth - Poetry
  • Mr. Wilde - Poetry
  • Y5 Mio - Poetry
  • Y5 Lukas - Poetry
  • Y5 Gaku - Poetry

The Global Campus provision offers a unique platform to showcase and encourage the sharing of art. As well as sharing our writing within class or school, we now have the opportunity to read/see the art of others and widen the audience of our own. The gives so much more ‘oxygen’ to these endeavours.

Please encourage your children to exploit the Global Campus resource, especially in the context of sharing art and writing.
