SUMMER SCHOOL 2020
We have many new and exciting programmes on offer as
well as the old favourites.

Nursery children will once again learn in the comfort
and security of the specialised Early Learning areas at
The Lady Elizabeth School in Benitachell. They will learn
English during play and fun activities which include,
dance, swimming, gym, art & craft, dance and free
play. They will be in the care of our friendly, professional
and highly qualified nursery staff and their assistants
who focus on the children following a fun and varied
programme.

The 5 - 8 and 9 - 11 year old children will enjoy learning
English during inspirational lessons. Our professional
English teachers focus on the four skills of learning a
language with particular emphasis placed on speaking
and communication. A variety of activities are included
in the programme and in 2020 we have added exciting
activities and workshops. Children will love to learn
Circus Skills and sporting activities such as Tennis
which have been included in the new 2020 Summer
Programme.

In 2020 teenage students will be able to choose specific
programmes so that they can focus on something that
they really enjoy, rather than doing activities which
might not be of interest to them. They will combine an
Academic Subject with a specialised activity which is
chosen before the course begins. They have the choice
of four Academic Subjects and eight Elective Subjects.
We feel that this choice allows students to participate in
subjects that they like and have a passion for.

Our excellent Residential Programme, where students
stay with a Host Family, continues in 2020 with the
fabulous addition of our wonderful Boarding House
Facility, situated within 30 minutes of The Lady Elizabeth
School. Students will have the choice of whether they
stay with a Host Family or they can opt for the Boarding
House where they will stay with up to 25 other students
from countries all around the world.

Please note: Registration and orientation of all pupils will take place the Sunday before they start the course. The balance
of any payment will be made on this day and children will get to meet their monitors. Parents and children will have a tour
of the school so they are familiar with where they need to go each day. Set times will be allocated to different age groups
on Sunday and parents will be notified when they receive all Summer School information relevant to the start of the course.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE 12 - 16 GROUPS

Due to Academic and Elective Subjects being two week programmes, ALL students in the 12 - 16 Group need to sign up
for at least one session and even though students can do a three-week programme, they must start at the beginning of a
Session. They cannot join the second week of a Session which has already commenced. They can do two, three, four, five,
six or eight weeks but they must always start at the beginning of a Session.

It is preferred that the 9 - 11 Group also join at the beginning of a Session, however, as their programme is more flexible
under special circumstances they will be allowed to join on the second week of a Session.

Younger children can join the Summer Programme at any time.

NURSERY
                               2 - 4 YEAR OLD CHILDREN

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

Each fortnight even our youngest Summer School children will
participate in activities relating to the fortnightly theme. In the first
two weeks of Summer School our little ones will learn some fun
and exciting circus skills which they will show to their parents at
the performance.

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 are 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!

Chocolate brownies, pizzas, cup cakes, pancakes and other tasty
treats are made during cooking lessons which are loved by this
age group.

Swimming is part of the routine with all young students having
the opportunity to swim everyday. It is an excellent way to gain
confidence in the water and to cool off. Certificates are given for
reaching certain milestones in the pool as children improve their
swimming skills vastly during their time at Summer School.

Art and craft classes are also part of the daily timetable with
children having the chance to show their artistic talents using a
variety of different materials to make interesting masterpieces. It
is important that children have a lot of fun whilst also learning
English or Spanish. The activity programme provides just the right
balance.

English. Students of different nationalities work together during
the activities and communicate in the common language, which
is English.

With a combined English and activity programme, and by
splitting the English programme into morning and afternoon
sessions, we find that our students start each English lesson
refreshed and ready to learn.

This programme is ideal for students who want to learn English
but also want to participate in fun activities.

ACADEMIC PROGRAMME
                                   ENGLISH LANGUAGE
Students sit an English examination upon arrival at Summer
School and are put into groups based on the exam result. There
are generally four levels, Beginner,
Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate and Advanced. Special
consideration is given to students who are looking at passing a
Cambridge or equivalent exam and they are put into a class with
others who have the same aim.

English is taught in a relaxed environment with a lot of emphasis
on speaking activities.
Students work in pairs or small groups to build confidence and
fluency in real life scenarios. They develop skills in thinking,
reading, writing, listening and speaking in English. Class sizes are
small so that teachers are able to give students individual support
and help during the lessons.

Group activities include University Challenge, Running Dictations,
Quizzes, Student Presentations and Debates. These activities
encourage students to work in teams and to have fun whilst
learning.

                                       CREATIVE WRITING

The Creative Writing Summer School Programme is designed for students of
all levels and interests who want to explore their own potential and challenge
themselves creatively.

Based on a two week programme the Creative Writing Programme is recommended
for students 14 and above due to the nature of some of the themes covered.

Workshops will introduce students to all phases of the writing process, including
idea generation, writing and revising drafts and editing. Teachers will help
and encourage students through the different stages until both student and
teacher are happy with the outcome. Students will explore different genres of
creative writing and look at the work of different poets, short story authors,
playwrights and lyricists.

Students will write extensively and the course is intended for those who desire to
understand the power of creative language. They will enjoy producing original
poems, scenes from a play or movie, song lyrics and short stories.

The course includes snorkelling for fish identification
and looking at the characteristics of Mediterranean
habitats. Students will visit local marine parks,
Mundomar and Oceanographic to investigate dolphin
communication and animal training. They will also
kayak to look at the plate tectonics and coast formation
and spend time sailing to help them to understand
ocean currents and meteorology.

The course is an exciting introduction to Marine Science
and is very practical. Much of the student’s time will be
spent in and on the water, conducting research. This
will then be combined with classroom activities where
they will collate their findings, conduct experiments
and through the dissection of marine animals,
invertebrates and fish, find out about respiratory systems
and diffusion along with other facts about animal
physiology.

ELECTIVE PROGRAMME
    STUDENTS CHOOSE ONE ELECTIVE SUBJECT

Students choose one elective subject to study for three
hours a day, in total this will equate to 24 hours of
immersive class time for the duration of the two weeks
and 48 hours for the four week programme. Students
are also able to do two weeks of one subject and then
change and do two weeks of another subject if they are
doing the four week course.

The subjects on offer are:

•   Photography
•   Creative Coding
•   Sport
•   Master Chef
•   Performing Arts
•   Art & Design
•   Woodwork
•   Multi-Activity Programme

Please note that there are limited places in each of the

These activities are for students aged from 12 - 17.
Younger students staying with Host Family will follow
a programme which includes English and a mixture of
activities.
ELECTIVE PROGRAMME
                                           PHOTOGRAPHY

There’s much more to photography than just pointing and shooting with a mobile phone. Photography is an art and this fun and
practical elective is aimed at all budding photographers, from beginners to more experienced students. It will teach pupils how to use
a camera for the first time, or help to explore new avenues and techniques for students who already have a good understanding of
photography.

The class is structured around practical assignments, which will be collated in a mini portfolio as the basis for future work and
study. Students will study the composition of photos and look at ways of enhancing their own work using different programs such as
Photoshop and Lightroom. Pupils will leave Summer School with a sketch book full of their own work with annotations describing the
techniques they used and how they improved the look of the photo.

Learning outcomes include:

•   ✔Understanding your digital camera
•   ✔ Shooting in manual
•   ✔ An appreciation of composition
•   ✔ Improved editing and portfolio -building skills

This is an introductory level class for students interested in computer programming, technology and gaming.
Students will learn the fundamentals of coding, theory, language and animation including planning, writing and programming code.
They will work on projects ranging from Virtual Reality, Robotics, Game Design to App Development, gaining an understanding of
STEM and future career opportunities. This class develops problem solving, teamwork and communication skills.
ELECTIVE PROGRAMME
                                             SPORT

We understand that some students just want to play sport and are
not interested in other activities on offer. In 2020 there will be a
programme of sport.

Pupils will be able to try new sports or improve on old skills. Football,
volleyball, rounders, rugby, cricket, swimming and many other sports
will be played throughout the weeks at Summer School and there will
be regular competitions and team events for everyone to participate
in.

Outdoor education will become part of Summer School with students
who follow the sports programme able to participate in activities
such as mountain bike riding, orienteering, kayaking, stand up
paddle and regular visits will be made to local padel and tennis
courts.

                                         MASTER CHEF

Cooking is an all-time favourite at Summer School, but in 2020 we are
taking it to the next level where students have the chance    to learn to cook
three-course meals and specialist dishes. They will also learn about food
preparation and presentation with each two-week course finishing with a
Master Chef competition.

Whilst learning how to cook, students will also learn about nutrition, healthy
options and the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.

As part of the course students will visit local markets and supermarkets to
choose ingredients for their competition.
The idea is to make it a lot of fun but it is also about learning English and
how to cook!
ELECTIVE PROGRAMME
                                     PERFORMING ARTS

Our Performing Arts course gives students a new and interactive way to hone their English skills and become stars of the
stage! Teachers will run sessions on improvisation, stage settings, and theatrical techniques.

At the end of each fortnightly course students will perform for their parents. The performance will be based on the theme for
that fortnight.

Students who like art and to be creative will love spending their summer working on some great artistic projects based around the
fortnightly themes.

Their chance to shine will come at the end of the course when their work is displayed for parents and other students to see. They
will have the choice of different mediums and will work on one major piece to take home with them. There is nothing nicer for
artistic and creative people to spend time with like-minded people pottering in an art room.
