Sport – Music – Art
Physical education is an essential part of the curriculum. A balanced programme throughout the year develops four key skill areas:
- Mobility, suppleness and body awareness;
- Sports technique and ball skills;
- Stamina training and fitness;
- Team games and sportsmanship.
Sports include gymnastics and dance, athletics, swimming, cross country skiing, football, basketball, volleyball, touch-rugby, field hockey, cricket and tennis.
Physical fitness is essential for a healthy life and a lively intellect. Teamwork and competition, trying one’s best and learning from victory and defeat are essential training for life.
Moscow East organizes football and basketball fixtures with other international and Russian schools for both Primary and Secondary teams.
Art, music and drama stimulate a child’s creativity and aesthetic development. Music at English International School includes singing, instrumental practice and the theory of music.
Music is a key component in school drama productions and in concerts. There are frequent performances during assemblies. The school offers private individual and small group tuition for several instruments.
The art curriculum focuses on drawing and painting skills and includes 3D work and elements of design. Art work from all years is always on display around the school.
Drama is taught within English lessons and there are drama and music productions of varying types performed by different age groups.
The Christmas concert and the senior play are highlights of the winter and summer seasons.
There is an activity session each week which allows development and enjoyment of a wider range of skills: activities include chess, calligraphy and publishing as well as extra Russian.
We are building links with our local community and Moscow itself is a fantastic place for bringing learning to life!
