There was many a ‘gigglemug’ to be seen during our Victorian day! Albeit, not until Mr Snodgrass (Mr Gibson) was finished with a right awful lot in the classroom. Year 5 rolled back the years to the 1800’s and presented the children with a Victorian themed day that allowed them to experience what school would have been like; the games children played, arts and crafts children would have got up to. Finishing off, a dashing tea party was had to top off quite a spiffing day!
Today saw Year 4 fully dressed in Viking clothes as they took part in our annual Viking Day!
We had great fun making Viking shield biscuits, solving puzzles written in runes, planting herbs in the school garden and other fun activities.
This brings to an end a great term’s learning about how the Vikings lived.
Our hosting of the IAPS Middle East games in November was very successful, both as an event and in terms of performance. JESS Jumeirah, Repton and Foremarke joined us for aquathlon, rugby and netball. The results are below:
Aquathlon – 1st place
Netball – 1st place
Rugby - 3rd place
The whole squad performed superbly across the 2 days and were excellent ambassadors for our school. Thank you to all of them and in particular to all of our PE and extra curricular staff who work with these children on a daily basis. Special gratitude goes to Mrs Murphy who drove the whole event and worked tirelessly to ensure its success.
On Thursday 27th October you may have noticed a military feel to school as you entered through the primary gates! Fear not, it was all part of our Year 6's WWII topic.
An army Land Rover set the scene for a wonderful day where pupils were immersed in various 'evacuee experiences'. Highlights included an air raid led by our talented Year 12 drama team, some maths code breaking, spy mapwork skills and best of all some hearty WWII soup!
Many thanks to parents for the time and effort with costumes, it really helped make it a special day for all involved.
Year 6 pupils had a wonderful weekend of sport at the BSME Games in Sharjah. They were led, coached. cajoled, supported and nurtured superbly throughout. Two and a half very full days plus months of preparation resulted in the following placings :
Swimming – 1st
Athletics - 1st
Basketball – 2nd
Netball – 2nd
Football – 4th
An amazing set of results and only tiny margins prevented us from claiming a clean sweep of 1st places. These are most certainly our best results ever at BSME. Very well done 'Team JESS!'
