5-7 Lower primary

Ages 5-7: lower primary

Minimum 24 hours per week
Levels: Beginner to Advanced depending on number of classes

Learning English is play based with various project led activities in which learners work collaboratively and are encouraged to communicate in English throughout. Learners take part in hands-on activities, moving around the class, making things and working both collaboratively and independently.

As lessons are project based, we encourage learners to research new information by using books, computers and iPads. English is learnt through a variety of disciplines such as geography, maths, science, art, drama and music as well as English classes. Classes are connected to a weekly project or theme, which is linked to the weekly excursion. All lessons support learners in their language development. Sports lessons combine a number of team games such as football, rounders and dodge ball.

Excursions take place in central London and provide an excellent opportunity for learners to learn outside the classroom, visit some of London’s famous museums and enjoy a day of authentic use of English. High ratios of staff supervision on all outside activities means that children are safe and secure throughout the school day.
