The format is more or less the same except this time we’re including Year 3 to make it a full Key Stage 2-wide competition, with winners […]

The Vikings is an essential part of the National Curriculum for England and it’s an exciting British history topic for Year 4 to really immerse themselves in, especially if it involves looking like one during our Vikings Dress-up Day! So alongside wearing Viking clothing for today, a variety of creative approaches have been taken to teach Year 4 about how […]

Today, Gulf British Academy held its bake sale and it was the most successful one yet, raising a total of 400KD that will go towards our library.

Our pupils and staff looked amazing in their outfits, which depicted characters and people from the books and topics they have been reading, researching and discussing about all week. We witnessed all sorts too!  To highlight just some, there were costumes inspired by Peter […]

For the past week, the whole of Reception has been enjoying Splash Day 2018. Dressed in their very finest swimwear, all the children had loads of fun playing at each water station.  These featured waterwheels and pumps alongside buckets, squeezy squirters and a much-used hose.  There were sandpits and spades, too, plus tricycles and tyres filled with bowls of water. […]

Gulf British Academy held its first ever Spelling Bee last week – the climax to hours spent memorising and practising a collection of 100 words, set per year, for pupils across Key Stage 2 (Years 4, 5 and 6). Ever since Mr Mark announced the competition three weeks ago, the atmosphere around the Key Stage 2 corridors has been palpable. […]

In recent weeks, pupils in Reception have been reading fairy tales as well as learning how to write one themselves. Last week, they also concluded their curriculum topic ‘Once Upon A Time’, so what better way to reinforce their understanding than with an imaginary trip to fairyland where everyone could dress up for the day as a prince, princess or any […]

Following the success of last year’s Science and Maths Week, Gulf British Academy held its annual Science Fair today – one of its most enjoyable to date. The day started at 7:30am with classes of eager children holding up bags and boxes containing ingredients and equipment for their contribution to the Science Fair.  The children knew they only had 20 […]
