WEEKLY THEMES AND TRIPS

Whether your child is sports mad, loves singing and dancing, is interested in robotics 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 with an expert in the weekly theme.

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

Week 1: La La Land

In the first week we’ll have the chance to develop our creative sides with a fun-filled week of music, acting and dance. We will learn what it means to have star quality and learn about some of our idols from the big screen.

On Wednesday, it’ll be time for our first excursion to El Timbal for a fun theatre workshop with a couple of experts in musical theatre. There we’ll get the chance to try on some fantastic costumes and work on our stage craft. Lights, camera, action!.

Week 2: Junior Masterchef

In week 2 we’ll put on our chefs hats and start learning all about food! We’ll find out what it means to have a healthy diet, and what’s really in the food we eat.

On our weekly trip, we’ll head to a proper kitchen for a very special masterclass in the culinary arts with Cooking English! There, an expert chef will teach us how to whip up a couple of traditional British summer dishes – yum!

Week 3: Let’s Move

The third action-packed week 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 let our hair down mid-week with a trip to The Indoor Jumping Club, where we’ll test out our gymnastic skills on the trampoline and see if we have what it takes to be a pro.

Week 4: Tech-mania

In this week, the kids will develop their tech know-how! We’ll learn about today’s cutting-edge technology, as well as come up with some brilliant ideas for the future.

For this week’s excursion, we’ll take part in a very exciting masterclass with Rockbotic, where we’ll explore the virtual world with the pros.

Week 5: Art Attack

In our final week we’ll roll up our sleeves and turn the kids into miniature Banksys! We’ll unlock the secrets of the masters and let our creative sides shine as we hone our skills in the world of art and design.

Our very last trip will be down to Poble Nou for a masterclass with Dase before we’ll create our own graffiti masterpiece. We can’t wait to see how it turns out!.

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.

 

TIMETABLE

Classes start at 09.00 am and finish at 13.30pm. 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.
