Dear Senior School Parents and Families,

亲爱的各位家长,


The Academic year, 2018/19 has gotten off to a strong start. For the year 10’s, the students completed a placement test according to Cambridge International Standards during Military Camp week. From the first week of classes, students were in their correct classes, with their experienced English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher, on the programme designed specifically for their ESL level. For the year 11’s, the students were also placed in their classes according to the ESL level based on the data from the 2017/18 Academic year.

2018-2019学年度是一个良好的开端。对于十年级的学生,他们在军训期间完成了剑桥标准下的英语分班考试。从开学第一周开始,学生们就进入了适合自己英语水平的班级中学习。我们的英语老师在教授母语为非英语(ESL)的学生方面具有丰富的教学经验。而对于11年级的学生,他们按照2017-2018的英语分级测试结果也在不同级别的班级中进行学习。


The ESL programme continues to focus on the needs of each student at their level. Students are taking the number of classes they need in year 10 in order to progress to a B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) scale by year 11. For year 11’s Senior School has also fine-tuned each student’s ESL classes depending on their needs to progress to B2 by the end of this academic year. The focus is on engaging, motivating and challenging our students, along with equipping them with the ESL skills and tools to function effectively in their other subjects such as EAL, Maths, Sciences, and Studio Arts. Year 11 requires focus and hard work and progress largely depends on the effort the students are willing to put into their studies. We continue to trust they will put their academic welfare first.

整个英语项目组都关注于不同水平学生的学习需要。为了帮助10年级的学生在11年级达到英语B1水平,学校根据CEFR语言标准框架为学生匹配了不同数量的英语课程。对于11年级的学生,我们也会为帮助他们达到B2水平进行课程的调整。我们需要在教学中引导学生积极参与学习、激励他们并且带给学生挑战,在教学的同时充实学生们的语言技能并且有效支持其它课程的学习,例如EAL、数学、科学和艺术。11年级的学生需要更多的投入并专心学习,他们的进步取决于自己的能力、学习的自觉性以及最为关键的—学习态度。


All ESL classroom teachers follow Haileybury’s strict teaching guidelines of ‘I do, We do and You do.’ The focus and support to the students in each class is, either the teacher is addressing the ‘whole class’, a group of students or an individual student’. Group work and pair work are fundamental in second language learning and all ESL teachers are trained and experienced in this method.

所有英语课程都需要严格遵循黑利伯瑞教学模式— 直接教学法“老师讲,师生做,学生单独完成教学任务。教师在课堂中不仅需要关注整堂课,或者一部分学生,而是应该关注到每一个学生。小组活动和配对学习是英语教学的基础,而我们所有的老师都具备组织这样课堂的能力。


The following are a few snapshots of ESL classes these first weeks with some positive comments from their teachers.

以下是近一周英语课堂中的一些照片,老师们也写下了课堂的评语。


"New year 10 students have started the semester strongly with a great spirit lifting both our hearts and minds. We have begun by reviewing and revising topics and grammar that, while familiar, are still challenging. Our themes have included summer holidays, home life, arts and entertainment and exciting lives. We look forward to a successful semester full of achievement.

10年级新生为迎接新学期的学习,在身心各方面都做好了充分的准备。在教学中,我们帮助学生复习、记忆语言点。尽管让他们非常熟悉更多的知识点,但也同样带给他们挑战。我们在教学中涉及到了假期、家庭生活、艺术、娱乐等方方面面。我们期待每一个学生都会在这学期中收获满满。

11年级学生在英语老师的指导下进行紧张的练习。学生们在口语和写作课上正在完成他们的学习任务,每一位学生都积极参与、全神贯注。

The experience with my year 11 students has been very positive and reassuring and I look forward to working with and supporting them to reach their full academic potential.

11年级学生在一起的经历让我充满信心,我很希望在学年末帮助他们实现学习突破。

Classes started this semester with critical thinking and problem-solving exercises, which got students discussing ideas and solutions to problems ending with a piece of writing describing the process and answering the question ‘why’.’’ An example is one textbook topics for one year 10 levels where fashion was discussed and about how things are different from the past. Overall, the first two weeks have been productive and satisfying.

在课堂中,学生们练习批判性思维,运用问题解决的策略去讨论并寻求解决办法,在任务的最后将自己的想法写成习作。他们的话题是时尚、以及今昔对比。总的来说,前两周的的学习是富有成效并让人满意的。

     

At Haileybury, every child matters, every day.

在黑利伯瑞,每个孩子的每一天都至关重要。
