Nursery Programme
Nursery age children enjoy participating in a range of
activities every day at Summer School. Our friendly and
professional staff place an emphasis on fun and provide a
varied and active programme for both the half day and full
day course. With face painting, music, art, gym/sport and
swimming, there is never a dull moment and learning comes
naturally in the relaxed, safe and cheerful environment.

The nursery is based in rooms especially for children of this
age. The courtyard between the classrooms is equipped
with playground equipment, sand pits and bikes with a large
sheltered and shady area for the children to play.

The children follow a daily routine which includes rest
periods where they can either have a short siesta or quietly
watch a film in a room which is created for this purpose.

All activities are creative and taught in English. Spanish
classes are given to those children who are at Summer
School to learn Spanish.

Children from different corners of the globe mix together in
perfect harmony creating a happy and memorable time for
your child!

to learn and participate in the many language activities which
encourage them to communicate in another language.

                        OLDER PUPILS

Teachers concentrate on teaching the English language, to
the older pupils, based on real-life situations and scenarios.
A broad range of vocabulary is taught and a daily Science
lesson encourages students to extend and improve their
vocabulary whilst performing fun experiments, learning
about animals and their habitats, the solar system and
environmental issues. Students also participate in role
plays, team building activities and drama based activities to
ensure a total immersion in the language. We aim to keep
the lessons interesting and diverse promoting an excellent
environment for learning languages.

English classes are organised according to age and ability
and in all age groups there are four levels ensuring that your
child is placed at the right level. Students will be moved
within these groups if the level is found to be inappropriate.
At the beginning of the course students are required to
complete an examination in English to ascertain their level.
Class sizes are kept to a maximum of no more than ten
pupils per class.

Intensive English
The Intensive English Course is designed for students who
want to concentrate solely on learning English. The course
revolves around the four language skills; reading, writing,
listening and a lot of emphasis is placed on the fourth skill,
speaking. We prepare students for upcoming exams and
specialise in the preparation for the prestigious Cambridge
English Examinations for students studying English as
another language.

The programme, as stated, is intensive so we have included
activities which still concentrate solely on the use of English,
but are designed to enhance the use of the language in
a more practical situation. Role plays include everyday
occurrences, such as job interviews, purchasing tickets,
asking for directions and other possible situations which will
all help with future education, travel, careers and everyday
communication in English. Subjects such as; History,
Geography, and Global Issues are also studied during the
lessons which expand vocabularies and provide a much
broader understanding of the language.

One lesson per day is dedicated to science where students
conduct interesting and fun experiments, learn specific
scientific terms and study science related topics.

English classes are organised according to the individual
student’s level and the examination which the pupil
is specifically aiming for. Classes will be conducted
concentrating on the different Cambridge Examination Levels
including KET (Key English Test Level A2), PET (Preliminary
English Test Level B1), Cambridge First Certificate B2,
Cambridge Advanced Certificate C1 and Cambridge
English Proficiency C2. Class sizes are kept to a maximum
of ten students per class.

Students will be expected to prepare and present PowerPoint
presentations on a variety of subjects which they will have
to research and investigate. During speaking lessons
they will be filmed and given individual feedback on their
performance. Grammar lessons will be interesting and
taught in a very practical way.

Throughout the course pupils will complete practice
examination papers and exercises, in all skills, which will
help in their exam preparation.

During the Intensive English Course individual student’s
progress is monitored very closely. Where areas of weakness
are detected more focus will be given to that specific skill.
Parents will be informed of the students’ progress and a
final report will be issued at the completion of the course.
The report will contain information regarding the student’s
level, the work they have completed and a recommendation
regarding which examination the child should sit and which
areas need improvement.

Courses are available in two or four week blocks.

Spanish Lessons
What better location to learn Spanish than in Spain itself. We
offer an exciting Spanish Course taught by native Spanish
speakers. Classes for all age groups are available. Ability
levels are ascertained and students are placed into groups
according to both their age and also their ability. Students
studying Spanish will also complete basic lessons in science,
and study history and geography as part of their Spanish
lessons. The beginner level focuses on vocabulary, grammar
rules and the structure of the language. Many topics will
be explored and students will learn how to greet people,
introduce themselves,and become familiar with words and
phrases associated with everyday conversation. Intermediate
classes are intended to extend students beyond basic
vocabulary and grammar and take them to the next stage.
Lessons will be based on the four skills; writing, reading,
listening and speaking. Once again particular attention will
be placed on the speaking skill to encourage students to
communicate in Spanish and feel comfortable in doing so.

Advanced classes are for students who already have a good
level of Spanish and are looking at improving on this level.
They may be studying for specific exams; such as GCSE
Spanish, and need their skills to be polished to get them
ready for these exams. Classes will revolve around the four
language skills, reading, writing, speaking and listening with
a greater emphasis on communication skills. Students will
be required to research a topic and give presentations to
fellow class members.

Staying With a Spanish Host Family Students learning
Spanish have the added advantage of staying with a Spanish
Host Family. This helps to reinforce what has been learnt
in Spanish language classes during the Summer School
programme. Students will return to the host family in the
evening and continue to speak Spanish. Similar to our British
Host Families, our Spanish Host Families are also committed
to helping to teach your child another language. In a home
situation students learn the language at a different level and
it is a very natural way of developing language skills. At
the same time students will be enjoying a different cultural
experience as they sample the Spanish way of life.

Intensive Spanish Courses Intensive Spanish Courses are
available to students who would like to concentrate solely
on studying Spanish without participating in other activities.
Eight lessons of Spanish per day will enhance their language
skills greatly and help prepare them for any upcoming
examinations. To break up the week there will be a cultural
tour each Wednesday where students will visit Valencia,
Xativa and local towns to visit museums, castles, markets,
cathedrals and many other special places of interest. These
excursions will be conducted only in Spanish and are a
great way to help develop a student’s understanding of the
Spanish language.

 their studies and to spend time with their friends whilst trying
 something that may be totally new to them.

Outdoor Activities for the 6 - 8 Year Olds
Every Wednesday the 6 - 8 Year group leaves the School to
participate in an outside activity. These activities are fun and
loved by all of the children. They will visit the marine park
Mundomar, the Vital Par Centre in Parcent where they will
go on zip wires, climbing walls, the ropes course and have
the opportunity to ride horses. They also visit the nature park
Terra Natura and learn all about sea animals when they go
to Oceanográfic in Valencia.

Staying With a Host Family
Lasting friendships are made during Summer School
especially between students who stay with a Host Family. We
have many native British families living in close proximity to
The Lady Elizabeth School. We have a number of Spanish
families available for students who want to learn or improve
their Spanish over the summer. What better way to reinforce
the language taught during the day at Summer School than
to go home and continue to speak in English with English
people or Spanish with Spanish people.

Our Host Families are committed to helping your child
to extend their vocabulary and knowledge of English and
develop an understanding of the language during ‘real-life
situations’ as well as looking after them in a caring manner
and ensuring that they really enjoy their summer!

We personally choose the British or Spanish Family which is
most suited to your child’s needs. All families are assessed
and we have the up-most trust in them. We look at the family
situation and the common hobbies and interests that your
children and the Host Family may have. We encourage
the Host Families to participate in a series of games and
activities which help to strengthen the relationship between
your child and the Host Family and also encourages
speaking in the target language. On the Sunday before the
course commences you have the opportunity to meet with
your child’s Host Family in a relaxed environment.

Our staff members closely monitor the Host Families and
the students and ensure that everyone is happy and they
regularly communicate this feedback to the parents.

Staying with a Host Family, in such a wonderful environment
where the sun doesn’t stop shining and the beach is just
around the corner creates an excellent atmosphere
conducive to learning another language.

A Day in the Life of
Our Students

    Students wake up in the house of their Host Family and are
    immediately speaking and communicating in the target
    language. They travel to School either in the car, with their
    Host Family, or on the school bus. The School day begins
    at 09.30 and includes four interesting and quality language
    lessons, and four fun activities including; Sport or Dance,
    Drama, Swimming, Art and Cooking. During lunch-time
    lunch is eaten in the School Cafeteria and then the students
    can participate in football or basketball matches, play
    table tennis or badminton in the gym, join one of the many
    supervised activities or just relax whilst they are waiting for
    the afternoon lessons to begin. At 16.30, after a busy but
    rewarding day, pupils return to their Host Family either via
    car or the school bus. Upon returning to the house they will
    enjoy dinner with their Host Family and can practise what
    they have learnt during the School day.

    On Thursday night the residential students stay at School
    to enjoy a pool party and a disco followed by a meal and
    then they return to their Host family. This evening activity is a
    great opportunity for the residential children to get together
    to help create lasting friendships that always eventuate in
    Summer School. Each Saturday a trip to local theme parks
    Terra Mitica or Aqualandia is organised and all pupils have
    a fun day out with their monitors and members of staff.
