This is our 28th Summer School and aims as always to encourage quality spoken and written English in a secure and fun-based environment. The program combines and balances classroom based learning (50% of day) and activities (50% of day).
Students experience interactive learning and practice using the Internet to support classroom activities.
Classroom-based English – The class-based English is age and ability appropriate and taught via a themed approach. The emphasis is to develop both written and spoken English confidence.
Sports activities – We encourage team building and co-operation via sports activities such as basketball, volleyball, football, cricket, tennis, and parachute games.
Music – students learn popular songs and rhymes to help them learn the English language.
Art and Craft sessions – build on the class-based themes and encourage the creative aspect of learning. Activities include painting, junk modeling and collage work.
Cooking sessions (weekly) – focus on creating simple dishes that the students can reproduce at home. All recipes, in English, are sent home weekly if parents are interested in repeating the activity at home in English.
Gardening (weekly) – students learn the rudiments of caring for a small garden area. Hopefully by course end they will reap the benefits of their work.
CN Metropole – 4 swimming sessions will take place in CN Metropole in Las Palmas.
AUPiragüísmo – 1 excursion to Las Alcaravaneras beach where our children will be able to try different water sports: Stand up paddle, slide, water battle, etc.
Touitsu Training Center – Sports trainers will provide several training sessions of karate and other sports activities during the month.
