Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Brighton College Abu Dhabi pupils celebrated the College’s annual No Pens Wednesday yesterday by taking part in a range of exciting pen-free activities.
Created to help with the development of each pupil’s communication skills and confidence, the No Pens Wednesday activities are focused around speaking and listening skills, giving pupils the opportunity to talk through ideas, focus on new vocabulary, and build confidence in their relationships.
Inspired by research that has found that pupils are more likely to become enthusiastically involved in their education when teachers support and enable the effective use of speaking and listening, the hands on, fun-filled day was organised by the College’s Inclusion Department and this year included activities such as story-reading in Pre-Prep, a shadow theatre performance that chronicled achievements of the UAE over 50 years by the Senior pupils, and Prep pupils learnt how to use sign language to express themselves.
