Dear Senior School Parents and Families,

亲爱的家长们,


As we complete the first half of the first semester, we review how students are progressing and reflect on what the students have accomplished. With a tailored syllabus for each English level, we need to continuously focus on their needs and how their English supports their other subjects, especially for the VCE. Basic structured classes ‘I do’, ‘We do’ and ‘You do’ are at the forefront of our methodology. We have produced a 200 page general vocabulary workbook, which all teachers use at the A1, A2 and B1 levels to support their teaching.


在我们完成第一学期的前半部分之际,我们回顾了学生如何进步,并就学生已经取得的进步和成绩进行总结。每个英语水平都有专门的教学大纲,我们需要继续关注学生的需求以及他们的英语如何支持其他学科的学习,特别是VCE课程。而贯穿课堂教学基本结构的“我做”(老师示范)、“我们做”(老师和学生一起做练习)和“你做”(学生自行操练)在我们的方法论中是最前沿的。另外,我们为学生们制作了200页的常用单词词汇手册,所有教授A1、A2和B1水平的教师都在使用该手册用以支持他们的教学。


For year 10, A1+ level students – 13 classes of intensive Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, Grammar and Vocabulary, teachers focus on the students ‘natural’ acquisition of the English language where students are taught structures in grammar starting at the basic level, backed up with vocabulary to support the writing, speaking, listening and reading.


对于10年级的A1+水平的学生来说——我们一周有13节课时紧锣密鼓地进行精读、写作、听力、口语、语法和词汇等的教学和练习,教师关注学生对英语的自然习得,并基于此,从基本水平开始讲语法结构,用词汇支持学生的写作、口语、听力和阅读。


Brief description of the focus of the year 10, 5 + 5 + 3 Classes:


十年级5+5+3 课时设置的简介


In the ‘Writing & Speaking’ classes, students learn how to write descriptive paragraphs structured with a topic sentence, supporting details and a conclusion. They also practice describing one of their peers, where other students have to guess who he or she is according to the information they are given. All students really enjoy these types of classes especially as it engages their senses and all learning skills. Using adjectives to describe people, students are encouraged to think and analyse for themselves and one way to begin is by sharing their own experiences.


在“写作与口语”课上,学生学习如何运用主题句、支撑句和结论句来进行描述性段落的写作。他们还练习描述他们的同龄人,其他学生必须根据他们给出的信息猜测他/她是谁。所有的学生都非常喜欢这种类型的课程,尤其是跟他们的想法和学习到的技巧有关的时候。另外,在用形容词来描述一个人,并鼓励学生自己进行思考和分析这个方面,教师通过让学生分享他们自己的经历来达到这一目标。

‘’For many students, this is the first opportunity to speak in front of their peers so building confidence and sharing in public is an important part of our approach.’’


“对于很多学生来说,这是他们第一次站在同龄人面前进行演讲。

因此让学生建立信心并学会分享是我们教学方法的一个重要部分。”

For year 11, over 45% of the students (B1+ and B2- students) are focusing on IELTS preparation at the 5.0 – 6.5 level. In addition, they are also taking academic vocabulary classes to support their future academic requirements.


对于11年级来说,45%以上的学生(B1+和B2-水平的学生)专注于雅思5到6.5水平的学习。此外,他们还有学术词汇课,以支持他们在以后的学术学习。


At year 11 B1 and B1+ level, students have been concentrating on describing personal qualities – both positive and negative. As we know, using adjectives can add significantly to general and academic writing and supporting the word building and word formation which is vital in all B1+ and above classes. Students have been spending time describing people they know (friends, family, famous people, etc.). Not only have they been using their newly acquired vocabulary but giving reasons for their choices. Overall, this gives their writing much added depth and encourages students to think critically. Some students are working on a ‘how to’ essay topic of their choice using the appropriate text type. By choosing their own topics, students are able to take some ownership of their learning and explore the vocabulary of topics they have an interest in. ‘How to’ paragraphs are a very common text type which will serve students well in their future studies.


对于11年级B1和B1+水平的学生来说,他们集中进行了在个人素质方面的描述--包括正面和负面的写作练习。众所周知,使用形容词可以大大提高学术写作的质量,并有助于增加词汇储备,这对所有B1+及以上水平的课程都是至关重要的。学生在描述他们认识的人(朋友、家人、名人等)方面进行了练习。他们不仅使用了新学习的词汇,而且能够对自己的选择给予合理的解释。总的来说,这加深了他们写作的深度,同时在教学中我们提倡学生进行批判性的思考。另外,学生学会了使用合适的文体类型来研究如何选择文章题目。学生通过选择自己感兴趣的主题,拥有了学习自主权,并探索相关主题的词汇。“如何做”是一种非常常见的文体类型,它将为学生将来的学习打下良好的基础。


Some year 11 students have also been working very intensively on their ‘Speaking and Writing’ projects in preparation for their powerpoint presentations which will be formally assessed at the end of November. The main focus of the work has been on introducing students to the skills required 1) when researching a topic and 2) to the speaking and writing skills required when making presentations. The main objective of this exercise is to prepare students for real life situations in both their academic and professional lives in the future.

In addition in year 11, the 5 + 3 intensive grammar and vocabulary classes focus has been on the future by using ‘be going to’, ‘will’ and the ‘present continuous’ using ‘ing’ and the past using regular verbs ‘ed’. For preparation students also share among their peers with ‘fears’ one topic which is important for building confidence and being able to think critically and analyse through self-awareness.


此外,对于11年级的学生来说,5+3模式的强化语法和词汇课主要集中于将来时时态的学习和练习,并能正确使用“be going to”、“will”和“be doing”表示将来时,规则动词在词尾加“ed”等。同时,学生还与同龄人分享“恐惧”这一话题,这对于建立自信、通过自我意识进行批判性思维的思考和分析很重要。

The ESL programme continues to focus on the needs of each student at their level and to challenge them appropriately. 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.


英语项目组持续关注每个等级学生的英语需求。我们减少了班级学生人数,并且还会有两名新老师的加入。这样做的目的是,通过小班教学,使得老师能够更有效地帮助到学生,并为他们提供有针对性的指导。


All ESL classroom teachers follow Haileybury’s strict teaching guidelines of ‘I do, We do and You do.’


每一位英语老师都坚持着黑利伯瑞固有的教学模式,以便为学生们提供各种有效的学习方法。在第二语言习得的过程中,小组学习和同伴学习是最有效的途径,每一位老师都会在课堂中使用此类方法。


We continue to put the welfare and needs of the students first.

我们会继续把学生的德育教育和学习需要放在教学的首位。


At Haileybury, every child matters, every day.

在黑利伯瑞,每个孩子的每一天至关重要。
