Specialevents activity

FromMr. Proudman and his students:


In the recent Special Events club, studentsdiscussed the 70th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party duringnational week to mark the event’s occasion. In the class prior to the holiday,the students talked about the reasons for them to have a strong sense ofnational pride for this special celebration and the rich history of thegovernment’s rule. They were challenged to think about the remarkable progresstheir nation has made during the 70 years and to contemplate how far theirnation has progressed in this time. The students had to complete a writingactivity and then present orally to the rest of the class. The assignmentfocused on 5 areas:

Whenthey celebrated, what they did, who they were with, where they went and how/whythis is such an important holiday to celebrate? All students did a great job!It’s very easy to talk about being proud when you ARE proud of something.

Ms. Viktoriia Koneva


The special activity “CCTV and Us”, helpsstudents to be more confident in public, to respond to unexpected questionsquickly and to be better speakers in general. Our students are encouraged tolearn from great speeches and renowned speakers to help them prepare for importantevents in our school and for example, before the National Day of China, theystudied and practiced the genuine speech “I have a dream”. It was a greatopportunity for students to think about their future and the future of China, inEnglish!

What do children dream about when they thinkabout China?

“I have adream, that one day China ………………. ”

I am happy tojoin with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest ……………………..

……….. is a demonstrationof prosperity in the history of our nation.

70 years ago,on October 1, 1949, a great Chinese leader, Mao Zedong, in whose symbolicshadow we stand today, raised the first Communist national flag of China inperson amid 300,000 soldiers and other people who were gathered at the square.

Thismomentous event came as a great beacon of light of hope to millions of Chinesepeople.

As we walk thatpath, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.

Even thoughwe face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is adream deeply rooted in the Chinese dream and this dream comes true.

FromMr. Kerns:


 The Year 9 ESL Englishprogramme with literature, in its fourth year at Haileybury, is off to itsusual promising start. In addition to the weekly English skills reading programme,students are required to analyse an abridged version of an English novel. Eachnovel is taught in a way to encourage students to love reading while developingessential comprehension skills. 

The list of novels include the famous detective SherlockHolmes, Robinson Crusoe and Dracula. Students love the mystery of an unsolvedcrime and are excited to experience crime and clues for the observant detective  and are always anxious to discover thevillain.


The vocabulary is challenging, but all students gain a goodunderstanding of a typical English crime novel. They also realise that a frighteningnovel can be just as good as a movie!

With reading being one of the essential skills oflearning English, this programme is designed to prepare our students for higherorder English language thinking and skills and prepare students in English literaturefor Senior School as well as to hopefully instil the love of life-long reading.


‘’Leaders are readers.Readers are leaders.’’


Continuouslyinspired by our school, parents and teachers, wanting to read more and know more, students can’t help studyingEnglish, even on the sports ground!

Meet the Reading Buddy Programme

image.png

image.png

Reading Buddy is a great invention of the ESLprogram at Haileybury and is now in its third year! This is where Middle schoolstudents work with Primary school students and read English books with them andsometimes for them. They often feel like their elder brothers and sisters! Ithas proved successful in the past years and it is a great opportunity to buildgood habits, good skills, and good connections! Look at the intense faces ofall the students! They don’t need a teacher at that moment, and they areinvolved in the story they are reading together. That encourages skills inreading, listening and thinking in English as well as necessary warmth andcare.

A new great opportunity for allchildren in Middle School

 

Resource teaching is primarily intended to support students whomay be having  difficulty in certainareas. For example, a student could perform well in a grammar and writing test yetfind it difficult to follow verbal conversations. In this case, the student isgiven extra time during school and evening study to practise with Resourceteachers and other students, at their own pace, and until the student feelsmore confident and comfortable with their own performance and in their regularclass.

 

There are also some students who have progressed very quickly andwho are given additional work during resource classes, intended to challengetheir skills and to keep the students motivated and engaged.

 

In either scenario, it is hoped that by providing resource supportfor the students, they will continue to enjoy learning English as beingmotivated to learn is half the journey.


 “Technologyis an instrument”

   Mr. Di Masi


Technology has always been a challengein the classroom. How much is too much? How much is too little? At HaileyburyMiddle School, our teachers are trained to be digitally literate. Our use ofprojectors in the classroom is instrumental in student learning. Othermultimedia literacies which teachers integrate into their teaching are U-tubevideos, videos from resource books and Quizlet. We began implementing Quizlettwo years ago and it has been a useful tool for students learning in and out ofthe classroom. We plan to continue implementing new teaching methods   like Edmodo and additional shared documents in the near future.

As per our school’smoto ‘Every student matters every day’, we encourage our learners to take astep forward to learn independence and begin to work on making their owndecisions.

国庆特别活动

来自普劳德曼先生他的学生们:


在最近的特殊活动俱乐部中,学生们讨论了中华人民共和国成立70周年纪念活动的相关内容。在节前的课堂上,学生们讲述了他们有强烈民族自豪感的原因以及中国政府管理国家的丰富历史。他们面临着这样的挑战:思考国家在70年中取得的显著进步,思考国家在这一时期取得了多大的进步。学生们必须完成一篇作文,然后向全班同学口头陈述。作文需要包含以下5个方面:             

当他们庆祝国庆时,做了什么,和谁在一起,去了哪里,为什么这是一个如此重要的节日?所有的学生都写得很好!当你为某事感到骄傲时,谈论其原因是很容易的。

CCTV 英语活动与国庆节


“中央电视台和我们”特别活动,帮助学生在公众面前更加自信、提高随机应变能力以便成为更好的演讲人。我们鼓励学生们学习优秀的演讲实例以及向著名的演讲者们学习,帮助他们为学校的类似国庆节这样的重要活动做准备。他们学习并实践了一次真正的演讲——“我有一个梦想”。它让学生们用英语思考自己的未来和中国的未来!

想到中国时,孩子们憧憬到了什么?

“我有一个梦想,有一天中国会…………“。”            

 今天,我很高兴与大家一起,共同见证历史上最伟大的……

…………是我们国家历史上繁荣昌盛的表现。             

70年前的1949101日,一位伟大中国领导人毛泽东,亲自升起了中国的第一面国旗。他为我们带来了翻天覆地的变化。     

  这一重大事件成为亿万中国人民的希望之光。            

 当我们走在这条道路上,我们必须承诺我们将永远向前迈进。             

尽管我们现在和未来都还要面临很多困难,但我依旧有一个梦想。这是一个深深扎根于中国梦的梦想,这个梦想实现了。

来自科恩先生:


 今年是九年级英语文学课程在黑利伯瑞开设的第四年,这又是一个新的充满希望的开始。除了每周的英语技能阅读课程外,学生还需要分析一篇英文小说的节选。每本小说的教学方法意在鼓励学生热爱阅读,同时培养必要的理解能力。

小说包括著名侦探福尔摩斯、鲁滨逊·克鲁索和吸血鬼德古拉。学生喜欢探索未解之谜背后的犯罪过程,对于这个敏锐的侦探揭示罪行和寻找线索他们感到十分兴奋,他  们总是急于发现坏人。

小说中的词汇很有挑战性,但所有学生都能很好地理解这本典型的英语犯罪小说。此外,他们还意识到,恐怖小说可以和电影一样好!

阅读是学习英语的基本技能之一,本课程旨在培养学生在高中阶段的高阶英语语言技能和文学素养,并希望能使学生们终身热爱阅读。   


阅读者即领导者,领导者即阅读者。


不断受到学校、家长和老师的启发,学生们想多读书和多了解,即使在运动场上,他们还在坚持学习英语!

遇见阅读伙伴项目

阅读伙伴是黑利伯瑞英语项目组一个伟大的创新,今年是开展的第三年!在这个项目中,中学生和小学生一起合作,和他们一起看英语书,有时还为小学生读英语书。中学生们常常觉得自己像哥哥姐姐!在过去的几年里,阅读伙伴项目已经被证明是成功的,这是一个建立良好习惯、良好技能和良好关系的好机会!看看所有学生们投入的表情!他们那一刻不需要老师,他们都全身心投入到了他们读的故事中。这有助于英语阅读、听力和思维技能的提升,同时培养了学生们的待人热情以及懂得关怀他人的品质。

来自苏珊老师:

对全体中学生来说,这是一次全新的难得的机会

资源教学的主要目的是帮助那些在某些领域有困难的学生。例如,一个学生可以在语法和写作测试中表现出色,但却发现很难理解口语对话。在这种情况下,学生在学校和晚自习中有额外的时间,与资源老师和其他学生一起,按照他们自己的节奏练习,直到学生对自己的表现和正常的课堂感到更加自信和舒适为止。

也有一些学生进步很快,他们在资源课上得到额外的作业,目的是挑战他们自己,保持学生的积极性和参与性。 .

在这两种情况中,我们都希望通过为学生提供资源支持,他们能够继续享受学习英语的乐趣,因为学习动机是成功的一半。

科技是一项技术

科技的使用一直是课堂上的挑战。多少算多?多少算少?在黑利伯瑞中学部,我们的老师接受了数字化教育的专业培训。我们在教室里使用投影仪,这有助于学生的学习。教师在教学中融入的其他多媒体文学作品,包括U-Tube视频、资源书视频和Quizlet。我们两年前开始使用Quizlet,它已经成为学生在课堂内外学习的有效工具。我们计划在不久的将来继续实施新的教学方法,如Edmodo和其他共享文档。

 杰莉娜·斯坦科维奇女士


所有的学生在前6周都在努力学习,现在准备期中考试。学生们和老师一起提高了他们在阅读、写作、口语和听力方面的英语技能。为了取得更好的成绩和提高社交能力,学生们通过小组合作互相帮助。根据我们学校的座右铭“每一个学生每天都至关重要”,我们鼓励学习者向前迈进,学会独立,并开始努力做出自己的决定。
