This month at CIS Skolkovo campus the children in EYFS and KS1 had a wonderful time celebrating Russian Week. All the children enjoyed traditional Russian stories such as Baba Yaga and took part in many other activities including a Russian musical concert and a traditional puppet theatre show which the children enjoyed immensely. The nursery children made colourful kokoshnik hats and found out about St. Basil. Reception children learnt a traditional Russian dance and showed it in assembly. Year 1 children learnt many facts about Russia and painted beautiful folk art gorodets horses and even a large samovar. In Year 2 the children made traditional clay figurines of people or animals and made and decorated gingerbread cookies. On Friday the week culminated in a Winter Family Activity Day and all the children were able to go outside and take part in traditional Russian games, activities and general fun. The children learnt a great deal about Russia but they also enjoyed themselves a great deal too.
