On Friday 1st November, CIS Skolkovo had a special historical costume day to celebrate the learning carried out during Humanities Week.
Children and teachers were encouraged to dress up as a character of their choice from medieval times. Both the children and teachers made a terrific effort and their costumes were very creative! The medieval characters gathered together in the assembly hall where they met many other lords, ladies, jesters, knights, peasants and even a few dragons! Prizes and House Points were awarded for the most creative costumes in Reception, Lower Primary and Upper Primary. There was also a competition between the teachers for the most creative costume, and it was difficult to recognise some of them in their armour!
Congratulations to the winners and to all the children for participating in this event. It was great fun for everyone involved and the teachers really enjoyed dressing up too!

Winter Sports Day in Moscow campus was a huge success! Students of Y5 – Y9 took part in a biathlon competition in the Olympic Sports Center.
Our students visited a lot of interesting places during school trips week. Early Years and Year 1 went to the Exotarium and saw animals from the hot savannas, deserts, and rainforests.
No matter how effective a lesson is, information learnt can be forgotten unless the topic is revisited several times. This is why, at school, we revise topics to check a child has absorbed the information taught.

Normally, when we mention courage, people think of great acts of heroism: such as rescuing people trapped in a burning building; fighting lions, tigers, alligators with your bare hands...
