Look out! Here come the Wild Things!

Let the wild rumpus start!

Our Early Years children presented their adaptation of Maurice Sendak's much loved book, 'Where The Wild Things Are' , on Saturday 26th May, and what a wonderful production it was!

For the past half term, the book has been central to their learning in the classroom, reading it daily and getting to know and understand the story of Max, the little boy who runs away and becomes King of the Wild Things only to discover that everything he needs is back at home and where he is loved most of all. Talk to any child in Early Years in BISA and they will be able to tell you the whole story!

On Saturday, dressed in costumes of their own making, they roared their terrible roars as Wild Things to a delighted audience of parents and friends. With the confidence of their performance, it was hard to believe, at times, that these children were all between the age of 2 to 5 years old.

Well done to all of you and thank you to all the parents for being as much a part of our 'Wild Things' term as the children have been!

A Beautiful Music Keys Recital

Our Music Keys programme allows all students in Upper Primary to learn a musical instrument with the help of music mentors from Secondary. They have weekly sessions with their mentors, working together and building their musical skills.

Every year this culminates in a beautiful afternoon of music at our Music Keys Recital.

This took place last Wednesday 23rd May in our amphitheatre in Kisongo.

Our young musicians performed beautifully, showing the skills they had learned and their ever-emerging musical talents.  Performing both individually and in groups, they showed no sign of nerves or stage-fright.

Congratulations to you all!

Video Report on Creative Arts Trip

As you will have seen in last week's news, our students from Secondary had a fantastic time in London on our Creative Arts trip. While they were there they kept a video diary of their adventures which has been expertly edited by our Media Prefect, Josephine.

Enjoy the following video of their adventures in England:

Adventures in London, England!

It was exciting times for our Secondary students who journeyed to the UK for our Creative Arts trip. Their 10 days in London were filled with adventures including visiting the Natural History Museum, London Zoo, Olympic Park, Kensington Palace, and many visits to the theatre. They visited a school in England, spending the day with the students and experiencing every day life in their school. For many of the young people, it was their first time visiting the UK and they had a wonderful time.

Keep your eyes peeled next week for their video report of their trip!

Thank you to Mrs Rogers, Mr Magambo and Mrs Moshi for taking the students on such an adventure!

Key Stage 1 dazzle in 'Tuishi Pamoja'

Our Key Stage 1 students put on a wonderful performance of 'Tuishi Pamoja' on Friday 16th March. Dressed in dazzling costumes, our giraffes, zebras, lions, leopards and Maasai told a story of the importance of looking past our differences.

The children, aged between 5 and 8, performed with confidence and brought smiles and laughter to our busy audience!

Well done on your fantastic performance!
