Maths Problem Solving Day

Mon, 10/06/2019 - 15:28 -- Lydia Makram

On Sunday 9th June we welcomed MBIS (Maadi British International School) and BISC (British International School Cairo) to Euclid Hall for a day of maths activities. We started the day with a logic puzzle, where the children working as a team, had to fit the clues together to find the answer. A great activity to break the children into the day, where we saw different levels of teamwork. The next activity was the Powerlines. The children had to use set numbers to create lines totalling a number. Great fun was being had by all. My personal favourite event was next, the Shuttle relay!

Science Club

Tue, 22/01/2019 - 09:07 -- Lydia Makram

In Science Club we were looking at the properties of custard when mixed with water. It is an unusual material because it can be a solid and a liquid at the same time.

First we discussed that custard powder is a solid material because it doesn't take the same shape as its container and then we mixed it with water. If we stirred quickly it turned into a solid and if we left it or stirred slowly it became a liquid.

Anti-Bullying Week

Wed, 14/11/2018 - 11:11 -- Lydia Makram

On Monday 12th November, the children (and adults) in FS, KS1 and KS2 wore odd socks to school to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week! They wore their brightest and most colourful socks! The children attended an anti-bullying workshop which taught them how to say no to bullies and say yes to respecting each other. They decorated a sock to show their understanding of respect and to celebrate being unique.

The BSA Golden Gala Dinner

Mon, 22/10/2018 - 08:01 -- Lydia Makram

BSA Friends of School 5th Gala Dinner held at the beginning of October was nothing short of a spectacular success this year and in every way a golden evening. We are very grateful to Her Majesty’s Consul General, Ms Wendy Freeman, for kindly hosting the event in the Consulate Garden.  We also had a very special guest this year, the Egyptian actress, Nada Bassiouny.

Book Week

Mon, 29/01/2018 - 13:53 -- Lydia Makram

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.
