International Week

What a fantastic week to celebrate our amazing and diverse community! Children at WIS and WJS thoroughly enjoyed learning about their focus country. Thank you to all the parents who came in to speak with the children. The Lions and Pandas enjoyed listening to Mrs Waghorn read ‘The Gruffalo’ in French. Merci beaucoup, Mrs Waghorn!

The infant children thoroughly enjoyed a karate workshop, led by Lisa Collins. Sensei (teacher in Japanese) Lisa, taught the children some basic karate moves and a self-defence technique. Sensei Lisa emphasised the importance of respect, and how the karate moves should not be used outside of the workshop. The children also learnt how to count up to five in Japanese!

At the juniors, each class had the opportunity to learn a dance that reflected their chosen country. Kate, from The Education Group, did a fantastic job in choreographing and teaching each class a dance routine tailored to their specific country of choice. Across the juniors, the children have learnt a variety of new moves, ranging from, the can-can to Greek dancing, African dancing to Bollywood! All in all, it was a brilliant two days, full of fun, where each child has developed their dancing skills whilst continuing to learn something new about their class’ country!

The International Fair showcased some of the incredible projects and artwork that the children produced during International Week. Parents and children enjoyed ‘visiting’ each country’s display and locating the country on a world map. There were also some tasty international food treats to sample. Thank you to Wagamama’s and the Everest Inn for the kind food donations.

The success of International Week and the enthusiasm shown by both the children and staff is a testament to our school community, and the importance we place on embracing diversity and fostering a love for learning.
