From the first day of Term 2, students have been researching areas of interest relating to the country each class chose to investigate. This information has been presented in the form of a non-chronological report as part of their English curriculum;  students have been learning how to structure paragraphs and use features such as sub-titles, diagrams, introductions and conclusions. In Science, students have been investigating characteristics of animals in their chosen countries. This included finding out about their habitats, diets, food chains, adaptations and threats these animals face. The Year 4 students planned, organised and led a series of activities for their Year 3 peers to take part in which proved to be an excellent opportunity for Y4 students to develop their organisational, communication and leadership skills. The wonderful range of activities and the diverse subjects studied are due to the child-led nature of the children’s learning.

In Monday’s opening assembly, Mr Chris talked about the role that International Week plays to help our students develop into ‘global citizens learning together’. This important phrase is from our mission statement and is central to all that we do at BIS HCMC. Throughout the week, our students have had countless opportunities to learn together and develop their understanding of cultures and countries around the world. In addition, we hope that students will develop a deeper awareness of issues affecting some of these cultures and countries and feel inspired to take responsibility to act for a better world one step at a time. We hope you enjoy the selection of photos from Year 4 activities this week.
