Dear primary school parents and families,

亲爱的小学家长们,


Welcome to the primary school bulletin of Tianjin Haileybury International School. Each fortnight, a bulletin will be written which will report on the news and events within the primary school. There will also be a special focus on the English program in the bulletin as well. We have also welcomed many new Chinese and foreign teachers into the teaching team and they have already been warmly received by staff and students. This week we will report on some of the new international teachers who have just joined us. Firstly, Mr. Jason Swerdfeger joins us this year from Ottawa, Canada. He has been in China since 2002 and has stayed predominantly in north eastern China. His hobbies include cooking, traveling, judo and drinking tea. He has taught himself Chinese and is able to speak about 7 languages. Secondly, Ms. Paula Teran is a highly qualified professional teacher and joins us this year. She holds a Master’s in Applied Linguistics and a Master’s in Education (Secondary) from foreign universities. She has lived in America, France, Spain, the U.K and Germany. Her hobbies include fitness, dancing and badminton. This is her first time in China and she is excited to be here. We warmly welcome Jason and Paula this year and we trust that they will both have a productive and successful year here at Haileybury.


欢迎阅读天津黑利伯瑞国际学校小学校报。我们将每隔两周写一份公告,报告小学的新闻和事件。公告中也将特别关注英语课程。很高兴今年我们小学迎来了很多学生,因此,为了满足需求,也有许多新的中外优秀教师加入到教学团队中,对此我们全体师生都表示热烈欢迎。本周我们将公布一些新外教的信息。首先是来自加拿大渥太华的Jason Swerdfeger先生,他自2002年来到中国,一直从事教育工作。他爱好烹饪、旅行、柔道和喝茶。他自学中文,能讲7种语言。另一位是Ms Sanchez,她是一名高素质的专业教师,取得了应用语言学硕士学位和教育硕士学位。她曾在美国、法国、西班牙、英国和德国生活过,爱好健身、跳舞和羽毛球。这是她第一次来中国并且很高兴来到这里。我们热烈欢迎杰森和保拉在今年加入黑利伯瑞,相信他们会取得优异满意的成果。

At Haileybury, every child matters, every day. This means that we seek to cater to and respect the individual needs of every student at our school. In order to make this motto a reality, we have implemented policies and procedures across all subjects which are aimed at improving the educational outcomes of all of our students. These outcomes are holistic in nature as they focus not only on the test scores of individuals but also on the educational process in the classroom. The implementation of policies and procedures for the purpose of maintaining teaching and learning quality is seen in the Primary School English program. These policies and procedures can be broadly divided into Formative and Summative performance indicators. Formative performance indicators are process indicators such as student handwriting neatness, the utilisation of the Haileybury Teaching Model (I do, We do, You do), the giving of homework, student organisation and teaching formalities. Summative performance indicators show how successful a staff or student has been. Such indicators include student weekly test scores, the quality of homework submission, student behaviour in the classroom and parental feedback. This year we have also incorporated a new Cambridge textbook – Superminds which will used in upper primary. Superminds is a great textbook which has been specifically written to cater to primary school students who are learning English as their second language. We trust students will enjoy it and learn more English through this new textbook. We will also continue with the internationally recognised Cambridge exams this year which will be expanded to not only include the KET but also the PET exam in upper primary. At Haileybury, high standards have been set for the purpose of maintaining the quality of teaching and learning every day in the primary school.


在黑利伯瑞,每一个孩子的每一天都至关重要。这意味着我们力求满足并尊重学校每个学生的个人需求。为实现这个承诺,我们推行了一系列全学科的教学政策和教学方法,旨在改善并提高我们全体学生的教育质量。我们取得的教学成果在实质上具有整体性,因为我们不仅关注每个学生的考试成绩,同时也兼顾其课堂学习的过程。这些教学方法和教学步骤的有力实施是为了保证小学英语课程教与学的质量。这些政策和方法可以大致分为形成性和总结性这两项成绩管理标准。形成性评价也就是过程管理评价,例如:学生书写的整洁度,作业的提交,黑利伯瑞教学模式(我做,你做,大家做)的践行。终结性评价是教师和学生成功的体现,包括周测成绩,提交作业的质量,学生在课堂的表现和家长的反馈。今年我们在低年级也使用了新的剑桥英语练习册——Superminds。Superminds是一本很棒的教科书,是针对英语作为非母语的第二外语国家的孩子们编写的。我们相信学生会喜欢它并通过这本新教科书学习到更多的英语。在小学部的低年级,我们将继续使用国际认可的剑桥英语考试,今年不仅只有KET(剑桥英语入门考试)还增加了PET(剑桥英语初级考试)。在黑利伯瑞,高标准的建立都是为了保证小学部每一天教与学质量的提高。

At Haileybury, we seek to provide our students with world-class opportunities which are not provided in other schools. Students can select programs such as golf, tennis, oil painting, violin, piano, guitar, performing arts, dance class, robotics, and Cambridge English classes. It is important to develop students who are able to excel in fields outside of the core subjects of English, maths and Chinese so that they can become well rounded individuals. For example, it is believed that learning piano or a musical instrument will help to speed up a child’s cognitive development. As, it is impossible to provide every single extra-curricular class, actual classes offered will depend on student demand in each category so if you want your child to participate in a particular extra-curricular activity, please enrol your child as soon as possible. 


在黑利伯瑞,我们希望为我们的学生提供其他学校所没有的世界一流课程。学生可以选择高尔夫、网球、油画、小提琴、钢琴、吉他、表演艺术、舞蹈课、机器人和剑桥英语等课程。重要的是培养在英语,数学和中文核心科目以外的领域中,使他们能够成为全面发展的个体。例如,学习钢琴或乐器有助于加快儿童的认知发展。但是,孩子的精力有限,因此,实际提供的课程将取决于每个的学生兴趣爱好。所以,如果您想让孩子参加课外活动课,请尽快给孩子报名。

It has been a great start to the year and we hope to continue to cooperate with you this year to make it another great year of teaching and learning. If you have any questions, feel free to speak to your homeroom teacher or arrange to meet with a subject teacher.


今年我们有一个非常好的开始,我们希望继续与你们携手共进,让整个学年的教学和学习都有一个好的结果。如果您有任何疑问,请随时与您孩子的班主任老师交流,或安排您与任课老师联系。
