WEEKLY THEMES AND TRIPS

Whether your child is sports mad, loves singing and dancing or wants to be the next Einstein, with new themes each week, there’s something for everyone.

Every Wednesday, we’ll go on an excursion and put into practice what we’ve been doing in class.

Then, on Fridays, all the parents are invited to our Presentation Party, where you’ll get to see your kids in action.

Week 1: Walk like an Egyptian

In the first week we’ll take a trip back in time and discover what life was like in ancient Egypt. We will attempt to answer some of life’s greatest mysteries like How were the pyramids built? What do the hieroglyphics mean? and Who was the most powerful pharaoh?

On Wednesday we’ll explore the Egyptian Museum and take part in a mummification workshop and find out how bodies were preserved for afterlife.

Week 2: Think Green!

In week 2 we’ll swap our Egyptian headdress for a cape as we become superheroes and try to invent new ways to help save the planet. We’ll take a closer look at nature and the impact humans are having on it.

During our weekly trip we will head to the jungle and swing our way around Bosc Urbà – Barcelona’s very own urban adventure park. Guaranteed to thrill, this is the perfect trip for little adventure seekers.

Week 3: Art Attack

With the planet safe, week 3 will turn the kids into miniature Picassos! We’ll discover some of the world’s greatest artists, examine their different styles and maybe even open our own Prado Museum.

The trip to the Miro Museum will spark our creativity as we try to make the next great masterpiece.

Week 4: School of Rock

Week 4 is sure to start with a bang as we put down our paint brushes and pick up our drum sticks. We’ll learn about music from around the world, create our own instruments and become singer/songwriters.

The drumming workshop at Percumusic will give us the rhythm needed for the spectacle of the week – OH has got talent!

Week 5: Sport Stars

The final action-packed week is dedicated to sports. With a focus on the Olympics, we’ll learn about some of the weird and wonderful events and even create our own.

We’ll cool off with a trip to Barcelona Skating Club, test out our skills on the ice and see if we have what it takes to be a future olympian.

METHODOLOGY

Cursos de inglés para niños en verano | Oxford House Barcelona

All of our young learner teachers are trained in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL).

This is when different subjects, such as science or history, are taught in a second language. It allows your children to learn interesting things while practising English at the same time.

The approach helps prepare young learners for today’s digital and globalised world, where English is commonly used as the medium of communication when travelling, studying, working or browsing the internet.

By focusing on topics which are both fun and engaging, your kids will enjoy a meaningful learning experience and will be more motivated to learn.

CLIL also helps kids learn English in a natural and relaxed environment, taking the focus off grammar and putting it on communication and understanding.

 

21st CENTURY SKILLS

Cursos de inglés para niños en verano | Oxford House Barcelona

Not only will your children discover fascinating things about the world around them and practise speaking, reading, writing and listening in a dynamic way, they’ll also learn essential skills for 21st century life.

With a strong focus on communication, collaboration and critical thinking, students will work together to complete tasks, while also exploring their creativity.

What’s more, with computers, projectors and TVs in each room, teachers will incorporate authentic videos and other interactive media into classes, helping motivate and engage the kids.

They will also be exposed to other cultures with teachers and students coming from a variety of countries including UK, USA, Italy, Russia and China, which further encourages English to be used at all times.

 

TIMETABLES

We offer a flexible schedule to suit all needs, with classes in the mornings, afternoons or all day. Those coming in the morning can be dropped off from 08.30am with classes starting at 09.00am.

The full day programme also includes a healthy three course meal at Tento, a local restaurant just around the corner from the school.
