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!

As a parent, you want your children to learn all that they can, to be curious about exploring the world, as well as learn how to read and write. Did you know that you can help your son or daughter academically by playing with them outside of school?

The University of Cambridge has over 100 libraries. The central library alone (the Cambridge University library, or the ‘UL’) has approximately 8 million volumes, and is able to request a free copy of every book published in the UK and Ireland.
One book in the CIS Festivalnaya library that I recommend is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
