WEEKLY THEMES AND TRIPS

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

Every Tuesday, we’ll go on an excursion and every Thursday, we’ll have a masterclass to put into practice what we’ve been doing in class with an expert in the weekly theme.

Each week we will make a presentation video where you will be able to see your children in action and their progress throughout the course.

Semana 1: Taking Care of Number One

In our very first week the main focus is self-care! We’ll find out how to keep our bodies in tip-top shape, as well as the best ways to feel good, inside and out. On Tuesday we’ll get moving with a trip to Climbat to scale the walls! Then on Thursday, we’ll take part in a special cooking masterclass in the garden! There, chef Yohanan will teach us how to make some delicious summer dishes. Our mouths are watering already!

Semana 2: The Future is Ours

In this very special week, we’ll be putting a special emphasis on robotics, with the help of our specially trained team of teachers. We’ll explore the big advances in science and technology that are affecting their lives today, as well as putting our heads together to imagine what the future will look like. After a trip to mNACTEC to find out all about technological advances in Catalonia, we’ll return to base camp to start finding the tools we need to shape the future ourselves, including a special robotics workshop on Thursday.

Semana 3: Future Stars

This week, it’s time to let our creative sides shine! We’ll bring out our inner superstars with a fun-filled week of music, art and dance. On Tuesday, it’ll be time for our very special excursion to Poble Espanyol for a fun glass painting workshop. There we’ll also get the chance to find out about crafts from around the world. For our masterclass, we’ll get our groove on and do a hip hop dance class in the garden with Sefa – we can’t wait!

Semana 4: Techno-Mania

This week, our expert coding teachers will help the kids develop their tech know-how! We’ll explore the virtual world and its possibilities, as well as come up with some brilliant ideas to shape it. For this week’s excursion, we’ll head off to Cosmo Caixa to learn more about the universe, followed by a very exciting masterclass in coding later in the week where we’ll learn how to create our own video games.

Semana 5: Take it to the Max

The last of our action-packed weeks is dedicated to sports. With a focus on the keeping fit, we’ll learn about some of the weird and wonderful ways we can do this and even think up some of our own.
We’ll cool off on Tuesday with a trip to the famous Montjuic Olympic pool, and then on Thursday, we’ll stretch our tired muscles and recharge with a relaxing yoga class in the garden. Ommm!

Semana 6: The Future is Ours

In this very special week, we’ll be putting a special emphasis on robotics, with the help of our specially trained team of teachers. We’ll explore the big advances in science and technology that are affecting their lives today, as well as putting our heads together to imagine what the future will look like.

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 different skills (oral and written) in a dynamic way, but they will also learn essential skills and competences for life in the 21st century, such as robotics, coding, science (STEM), collaboration and critical thinking.

With a strong focus on communication, students will work together to complete tasks, while also exploring their creativity, posing questions and problems for which they will devise their own solutions, all while using English as a vehicular language.

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.

 

TIMETABLE

Classes start at 09.00 am and finish at 13.00pm. We offer a flexible registration to suit all needs, being able to sign up to one or multiple weeks. Students can be dropped off from 08.30am for no extra charge.

The programme also includes a healthy breakfast in our lovely garden.

OHCONNECT IN EDMODO

This year we have introduced an interactive online platform between teachers and students!

The Edmodo app provides each group with a private virtual space in which to share messages and learning resources.

The possibilities it offers are multiple and it it will enhance your child’s experience both in the classroom and outside of it.

The teacher will be able to share with the class all kinds of multimedia resources, challenge them in quizzes, assign tasks, correct them and score them.

Students will be able to keep track of what’s been done in class, increase their hours of exposure to the language with additional materials, organize their homework and study calendar, and check their marks.

Parents will be informed of the activity and progress of their children, and will moreover have the possibility to communicate directly with the teachers.

And what’s more, you can do all this from your mobile!

DOES YOUR CHILD NEED TO SELF-ISOLATE DUE TO COVID?

Don’t worry – their teacher or someone from the academic team will contact you personally each week to check in on their progress, keep them up to date on what’s going on in class, and assign personalised homework to help them keep working towards their goals.
