Beginning in June 2015 we will offer a Summer Camp programme in Italian and English for children from ages 3-11.
Our BSchool Summer Camp provides an opportunity for children to learn Italian and English in a safe, relaxed, enthusiastic and creative atmosphere. The focus is on developing conversational language and the children begin to learn and develop language skills (everyday phrases, fluency and vocabulary) in both languages through play and a programme of engaging activities. These include art projects, music and movement, songs, drama, cooking, dance, games, photography and by using the language in a natural context throughout the day.
The children will participate in activities that are led by mother-tongue speakers and alternate between Italian and English. Our instructors plan closely together to deliver a cohesive themed summer programme.
Two groups, one for children ages 3-5 and one for children ages 6-11, will work with a mother-tongue Italian or mother-tongue English instructor, and an assistant. Our camp instructors are caring and experienced professionals who are passionate about working with children of all ages.
Places are available for 9 children from 3-5 years of age, and 14 children from 6-11 years of age each week.
We will offer different themes focusing on the world, which we are going to explore over a six week period from 22 June through 31 July.
The Themes of the Weeks
We will explore one continent every week. Weekly activities will be divided into four different themes.
Arts in Action
Arts in Action recognises the role of the arts in self expression. Children will experience a wide range of expressive activities, developing their confidence and sense of self.
Art and Science
Children will embark on artistic adventures linked to the world of science. They will experience a variety of materials and artistic approaches to art forms.
World Bazaar allows children to explore the cultural differences existing in world and how these are expressed through languages, traditional crafts, games beliefs and daily rituals.
The environment matters to us at BSchool, and this theme encourages children to consider the world and its resources, and their responsibility as a new generation. Activities will range from investigating flora and fauna habitats to recycling material in adventurous ways.
