Language Club is an option in which French (Monday’s) and English (Wednesday’s) can be combined through the “Au pays des Merveilles” and “Discover Robotics” activities.
Teaching science from a very early age allows children to learn basic scientific skills through experimentation and games, discovering the “how’s” and “why’s” of the world around them. It also awakens their interest in natural phenomena and the world in a fun way and in English.
The main purpose of this activity is to introduce children to technology in an entertaining way. Students will work in teams, developing skills such as problem solving, while they learn English, and all of it through innovative and fun activities.
This year, as in past years, extracurricular English activities fall under the “English in Action” umbrella. This includes activities aimed at students from a pragmatic point of view. Students learn quicker if they work with “reality”. Using real and tangible objects helps students connect to the language on a different level.
This is an activity in which students will create their own story with their texts and illustrations throughout the school year, using a variety of visual art techniques.
Through games, improvisation techniques and text scenes, we will discover different expression tools that constitute theatrical language. We will focus on basic techniques used by actors, but we will also discover and try other fundamental roles in theatrical creation (direction, scenography, illumination, sound…).

Would you like to make new friends from different European nationalities and have a solidary and international experience?

By following the same methodology as in “English in Action”, we have developed “Français en Action”, activities aimed at developing comprehension and expression in the French language, through development of manipulation, creative, exploration and experimentation skills. L’artisanat, le théâtre, le chat et la cuisine sont “Français en Action”.
