Year 7 has had a fantastic start to the new academic year. It can be quite a daunting prospect for the students moving from Primary to Secondary school, however, every student has taken the challenge in their stride and succeeded over the first few weeks. Our students have shown real resilience in finding their own solutions to problems and starting to take responsibility for their own learning. Some of the pieces of work that have been created have been incredible and the Year 7 students should be really proud of what they have done so far. The whole TBS community is excited to see the positive impact these new secondary students are going to have on school!
There have been some highlights of the work the students have been doing. In the Year 7 Performing Arts Workshop, the students have had the chance to combine their love for film and drama by recreating their favourite scenes from films. They were tasked with taking a photo of one particular scene. Saanvi’s recreation of Little Foot and Sannah’s Dora the Explorer were absolutely fantastic.
In Year 7 Nepali, the students are being introduced to the national Nepali Curriculum for the first time. This comes with its own challenges, however, the students have really taken to the lessons and have produced some incredible pieces of work. The students were studying the famous Nepali poem ‘Parichaya’ and were practicing their writing skills.
Finally, in PE the students have been taking part in a range of different live lessons and discussing elements of health and fitness with their teachers. Alongside these live lessons, the students have been working on an Olympics project and designing how the Olympics could be held in Kathmandu. This week the students were asked to create their own logos and mascots for the games, with the end result being great. Well done Year 7 on such a fantastic start to the year. Keep up the great work!
