OPEN DAYS & NEWS - DULWICH COLLEGE JUNIOR SCHOOL

Time: The second annual Dulwich College Junior School and JAPS Symposium

Boys from Dulwich College Junior School and girls from James Allen's Prep School (JAPS), recently took part in their second annual Symposium. Proving to be just as successful and fun as the first, the theme this year was 'Time'. The children experienced a succession of activities throughout the day exploring the theme in different contexts; Science, Maths, History, Creative Arts, and Sport. The time, they agreed, simply flew during a day that was educational and engaging. 

Absolutely Dahlicious! Year 3 Celebrate Roald Dahl Dress Up Day

Year 3 boys at Dulwich College Junior School and their teachers dressed up as a variety of characters from Roald Dahl’s books to celebrate ‘Dress Up Day’. In addition, to help celebrate the author’s 100th birthday, there was a cake sale for all boys at break time. 

A fascinating day of exploration for Junior School boys at Dulwich College

 

Junior School boys enjoyed an action-packed day of free learning, exploration and fun in the inaugural Junior School Symposium held in March. 

Based on the theme of ‘Movement’, boys from Year 3 to Year 6 enjoyed the Symposium’s wide range of activities, from dance and drama workshops to discovering how birds fly and how sneezes spread germs, helping to extend their learning beyond the curriculum. 

Sessions were led by teachers from departments across the College and visitors from further afield including a group of Masai dancers who led the boys in African dance workshops, and representatives from the deafblind charity SENSE who demonstrated what it would be like to be visually and hearing impaired. 

The day culminated in a rambunctious re-enactment of the Battle of Zama with the Junior School boys as Roman soldiers – armed with a colourful collection of their own custom-designed shields, charging against the Upper School boys as Hannibal’s elephants. 

A truly remarkable day of learning through movement and interaction left both teachers and boys physically and intellectually stimulated. Year 4 pupil, George Croally, spoke for all when he said “I wish it was Symposium every day”. 

Dr Toby Griffiths, Head of the Junior School, said of the Symposium “It was a pleasure to see how much fun the boys had from such a diversity of activities and the passion of the teachers in delivering topics which were so clearly close to their hearts. Hearing the boys and seeing their eyes light up when telling me stories of their favourite aspects of the day was especially memorable.” 

Based on the success of this year’s Symposium, the Junior School is already planning and looking forward to next year’s Symposium. 

Dulwich College Big Shift Eco Week 2018

During the Lent term, pupils at Dulwich College engaged in a week of activities and events to help promote the issues of positive eco-impact and sustainable travel. Central to the week were pledges made to improve eco or travel sustainability-related behaviour. DUCKS boys and girls and Junior and Lower School boys made individual pledges, whilst the Middle and Upper School boys made collective Form pledges. 

Big Shift Eco Week highlights included Year 4 boys visiting the Southwark Recycling Centre (the most advanced of its kind in Europe) and being joined during the week by 160 local primary school pupils. Across the College was a competition inviting the suggestion of initiatives that could improve the College’s eco-impact – the results will be announced later in the term. 

It was a busy and memorable week that sparked debate and its impact is already being felt as the boys question what they themselves, their parents, the College, the commercial world and the Government are doing, and what they can do differently to improve their eco-impact, locally, nationally and globally. 

Hakuna Matata! Junior School boys at Dulwich College perform ‘The Lion King’

After an enormous amount of effort, time and expectation the Year 6s demonstrated tremendous flair with their performance of The Lion King. With all the original songs and a script written especially for this age group the energy and enjoyment were clear to see. The quality of the costumes and set made it one of the most memorable Dulwich College Junior School productions in recent years. A huge well done to every single one of the boys for their talents, commitment and enthusiasm. Hakuna Matata - a triumph!

Dulwich College organise a carousel of activities for the Junior School House day

Pupils from the Junior School went off timetable for their annual House day at the start of term. Boys took part in a carousel of eight teambuilding activities in their respective Houses with boys from all year groups working alongside each other. The boys were tasked with building Dulwich landmarks using spaghetti and marshmallows, assembling tents in blindfolds, some fiendish problem solving activities, tackling a large obstacle in pairs, designing and producing a banner for their House, making houses out of newspaper and a beautiful costume out of paper and black bags. 

The boys then participated in their first House lunch of the year, a wonderful opportunity for the boys to make new friends and socialize with boys across all year groups. The day was rounded off when all the pupils took part in cross country. All boys impressed with their determination and stamina and there were many happy (and relieved!) faces as the boys crossed the finish line. It was a fantastic day and a great deal of fun, most importantly, it was a wonderful way to unite the Junior School at the start of the academic year.
