Our year 7 students presented their research for Global Perspectives to other classes as a part of the Human Exhibition, focusing on the topic “What makes us human?” The presentations included surveys, analyses of the responses and research. The aim of the presentation was to develop collaboration and presentation skills. Our students distributed a true – false worksheet to the audience to make sure active listening was achieved and collected reflection papers to make their next presentations better. Below are some responses from the presenters:
Samuel: I learned that dogs also have hormones like people and I realised it’s better to work with friends than alone.
Sebastian: I learned how to include keywords in presentations and when I was presenting it, I learned not to be so nervous.
Tobias: I had fun with Yuto while preparing it and presenting it can be very hard. I also learned how to insert links.
Sofia: I learned how to put key words instead of sentences, and I really enjoyed creating the presentation because it was really interesting to find all the facts about the animals.
Yuto: I learned that the back-ground should be a visible colour because the listeners can read it easily.
Kyrylo: I learned how to include animation into slides.

Your child will become a global citizen with wide understanding of local and international topics.
We put a strong emphasis on the development on subject specific skills rather than on acquisition of knowledge.
Emphasis on skills development (not just memorising).
Individual approach; school’s ability to motivate for improvement.
Your child will be excited to come to school.
You are not buying success, you are paying for the school to monitor your child’s progress to their goals and motivate them to fulfil their potential.
We are not a selective school: we believe that everybody can be successful.
Jolly Phonics is an engaging way to teach children pre -reading and pre -writing skills using phonics. Phonics is the teaching of the sounds that letters make, rather than the names of letters that are taught in the alphabet, because it is the sounds that are useful for reading and writing, not the names. These sounds are taught in a systematic way, alongside all of the skills needed for being a fluent reader and writer in future. Jolly Phonics also teaches all of this in a fun and engaging way, through characters, stories, actions, songs and games! To read more about Jolly Phonics, clickhere.

It is an excellent way to practise the skills learned through the Jolly Phonics Programme..
Cambridge Primary ENGLISH promotes an enquiry-based approach, developing learners’ confidence, creativity and intellectual engagement. Learners develop English skills that they can apply to a range of different purposes and audiences in everyday situations and in study.

Cambridge Primary MATHEMATICS focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject. Knowing your times tables facts without practical application and without developing alongside some good problem solving skills is not that helpful - in our school, we make sure our pupils know why they are learning it and how they can use the specific knowledge and skill.More about Cambridge Primary Maths
