We are pleased to announce that once more our students have achieved various awards for outstanding examination results. The awards are as follows:
Book week 2018 was a hugely successful week which focused on poetry and performance. All children in Prep and Pre-prep learnt a poem by heart, with the older children performing their chosen poem to their year group and, using specific success criteria, assessing each other. Children then voted and the best of each year group recited their poems in our Book Week assemblies. Alongside the recitals, many competitions took place, including ‘guess how many books are in the library’, a design a bookmark competition and an extreme reading photo challenge.
Students this week have been using Google Cardboard and VR apps to look at how VR can change our lives and potential uses for it in the future. Students were making 360 walk throughs of where they live and where they come to school. Y10 students gave Y8s a lesson on using BBC Microbit Computers, which was really fun. Students Yassein, Lina, Mohamed, Mariam and Bahira demonstrated good CS knowledge as well as great leadership skills in planning and delivering a lesson using technology new to the BSA.
In Pre-Prep we had a great International Day! FS1 learnt about Italy and FS2 learnt all about Cambodia by participating in different activities in each class. In KS1, we went all around the world and visited Scotland, the UAE, Australia, England, America, Italy and France! For lunchtime, we had lots of fun and really enjoyed our shared buffet at Heron Campus organised by the FOS.
Congratulations to our new playground monitors in Prep School. Their job will include making sure the play areas are left clean and tidy as well as helping out any of their friends who have any problems at break time.
Well done guys!
