Language in Focus

BIS is a truly international environment, and our students develop as global citizens by discovering and valuing each other’s diverse backgrounds.

‘Language in Focus’ is a whole-school initiative led by the EAL Department, and each term we celebrate one of the many cultures and languages in our school community.

Last Friday, at the Junior Campus assembly, we waved goodbye (or ‘paalam’) to our last Language in Focus, Filipino, and said ‘privyet’ to Russian. After the children had answered some tricky trivia questions about Russian culture, our four Russian-speaking students proudly came onto the stage to teach us some everyday phrases.

Russian is spoken in many countries, and our four students represented Ukraine (Zoia, Year 3), Russia (Sean, Year 4 and Alexei, Year 5) and Kazakhstan (Inkara, Year 6). Next, we learned how the smash-hit video game Tetris was invented in Russia, and we had a Tetris Battle on the giant screen between Alexey and ICT teacher, Ms. Maria. After a tense competition, Alexei (who looked splendid in his Russian costume) was declared the winner! The assembly finished with a rousing recording of the well-known Russian song, ‘Kalinka Malinka’.

Over the rest of this term, children will be learning and using Russian words and finding our more about this fascinating culture. To view the assembly, watch the video our Russian speakers made, and learn more about Russian language and culture, please visit the Language in Focus blog.
