There are many theme days held throughout the school during the year. These are linked to the curriculum, and bring the children's classroom learning to life. Some of the most popular annual theme days include:
Each year, as part of their geography topic about India, Year 4 holds an India celebration day. The children experience a wide range of Indian culture including music, dance, food and the arts. Children and staff wear traditional Indian dress and celebrate the sights and sounds of India.
As part of their history topic on life in Victorian Britain the Year 3 children take part in a special day where they are transported back in time to experience school as is was during this period - including a spot of Victorian discipline!
Year 5 hold an annual Greek day as the finale to their history project about Ancient Greece. The children dress in traditional Greek costume and take part in a whole range of activities including arts, culture, feasting and the Greek Olympics!
World War II Evacuation Day
Each year as part of their history topic about World War II, children in Year 6 take part in an evacuation day. The children come to school in costume and with their bags packed as we try to get to grips with how it must have felt for children and families to be separated during war time.
European Languages Day
This is a whole school celebration day, where all students are invited to dress in European traditional costumes (or indeed, football strips!) for the day. Across the school, there are exhibitions and demonstrations of different European countries' cultures, languages and arts, and plenty of opportunities to sample all sorts of European food.
Every year at the beginning of December, the school celebrates the UAE's National Day. The students enjoy an array of traditional UAE performances and falconry displays.
