The objective of this contest is to recognise the spelling of English words as they do in the United Kingdom. They do not only need to know how words are written but they also need to verbally spell them out fluent and clearly. There is no doubt that these exercises also help students gain self-confidence.
Every student in Primary school prepared a Public Speech presentation based on a subject proposed by the school. Here is an example of a 6th Grade finalist presenting her speech at the library on the different ways of education.
In March we also celebrated Theatre Week. The British theatre company Look out performed various plays for the different stages, Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary. Our students also prepared some plays: Snowwhite, The Colour Monster, Gruffalo, etc. Children enjoyed both watching and performing!
Primary students have also done many other activities in class aimed at developing oral skills. For example,4th Grade acted out the English book Changing Places. Later on, they designed different outfits by groups and presented them to their peers in the so-called Highlands Fashion Week.The girls loved it!
