New buildings and facilities for the development of British international school in Olomouc.
In autumn 2015, we moved our primary and secondary school to a new location at Sokolovska 76/6 in Olomouc, Klášterní Hradisko. With a 460 000 EUR investment, we transformed the previous science research centre into a beautiful property for our primary and secondary school.
In 2016 the school purchased the land and the buildings from the city of Olomouc and completed further investments into Preschool buildings and playgrounds.
Further funding was used to purchase new equipment, technologies, to develop the canteen, science lab and we are in the process of further improvements.
Brand new and beautiful 1.6 acres sports field has been developed together with a playground with tarmac surface placed in a heated tent.
The school is surrounded by trees and green areas which we maintain with great care. Children have a great opportunity to learn and play outdoors. Parents have easy access to the grounds. It takes only 5 minutes by car to get to school from the city centre.
We will teach your child to read, write and count. While at iSchool, their English will become their second native language. (Brilliant, perfect..)
Teaching independent thinking, responsibility and learning support is just a cherry on top.
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.
ORT is a reading scheme which has been developed to help children learn to read from the age of 4. This scheme is used by a vast majority of preschools and schools in the UK and around the world.ORT includes popular characters and illustrations such as Biff, Chip and Kipper, Floppy, Wordless Stories and easy regular word books to capture children’s imagination and interest and help them develop their pre reading skills. 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.
We teach English as a first language. Pupils that are only starting to learn English or need some additional support are allocated to our intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) programme.More about Cambridge Primary English
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
