This week, we have been hosting the Key Stage 2 talent show auditions. The students overwhelmed the judges with their talents which ranged from dancing to magic and some incredible singing as well. In addition to their performance skills, the students demonstrated incredible courage and resilience, as they shared their talent with the judges and peer audience. Our final celebration of talents will be on Friday 16th June and we are looking forward to inviting twelve of the acts on to the stage. We will inform the students of our decisions on Monday. A big well done and thank you to everyone that took part. Well done to Mr Kearton, Miss Silk, Mrs Shine and Mrs Norbury for their positive support and encouragement for all of the acts involved.
Continuing this week, we will be hearing from our Head of Subject Team for Modern Foreign Languages, Mrs Asse Drouet about our recent hosting of the KLASS Languages Day.
On Thursday 25th May, 56 students from Nexus International School, Putrajaya came to the Primary Campus to take part in a day of MFL Fun with our Year 5 students.
Our Languages Day started with a fantastic assembly full of impressive performances put together by the Alice Smith and Nexus students. We were treated to songs, dances and videos in Bahasa, Mandarin, French and Spanish - well done to all our performers!
The day carried on with a QR code race around the campus. This gave the students the opportunity to get to know each other as they had to collaborate in teams from both schools to work out clues in all four different languages. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the race! A particular well done to Wei Wei L, Charlotte H, Aina J and Keshav B from Alice Smith, who were part of the overall winning team.
We finished the morning with an exciting Kahoot quadrilingual quiz in the school hall. Again, all students had to work together and had to share their linguistic skills in order to answer all Mandarin, Bahasa, French and Spanish questions. The students did extremely well and showed that they were excellent communicators and problem-solvers.
During our midday break, lunch and football were appreciated by all and allowed the students to bond even more. Then in the afternoon, all Year 5 students enthusiastically took part in the different activities organised by our MFL teachers. The Chinese calligraphy, French singing and traditional Malaysian dancing were very popular and were enjoyed by all.
At the end of our MFL Collaborative Day, we said “au revoir”, “adios”, “jumpa lagi” and “zaijian” to our new Nexus friends. It was definitely a very successful Languages Day that reminded us all of the benefits of strong community connections with other schools.
