Programme Summary

 

There is no ceiling on what we can offer at The Academy.     At present, we’re offering the following topics but perhaps your children have a passion and they’re bursting to learn more about it.     Please let us know!    

 
 

Digestion and Nutrition

In this programme, we will use biology skills to examine the digestive system, learn about nutrition, nutrients, food groups, discuss body types and calorific requirements. We will identify and describe the distinctive properties of digestive organs.


Prepped, Planned, Prepared - Readiness for High School

Our Year 7/8 skills-based programme to aid future success with academics, organisation, emotions and social skills and really prepare for the transition to High School, Intermediate School or Boarding School.

 


Full STEAM Ahead - toys with levers and cams

Using a range of STEAM projects chosen for our Academy students, the children will: Research, design, learn about the properties of materials and how to test them, construct, adapt and evaluate to solve real life problems. Having learnt a range of techniques, the children will identify personal topics of interest for their own monster projects.


Fun active Maths for 5-8 year olds. Develop mental agility and strategies through small group work and a “hands on” approach. This terms focus is measurement, seeing the students develop confidence with using and converting between appropriate units for length, height, temperature, mass/capacity and volume, as well as time and money.


We will learn high frequency vocabulary and sentences in a fun environment, with the visual support of the teacher's gestures to help with memorising. We will focus on speaking skills and also start writing in French. The other aspect of the course introduces French culture to children. 


Building Blocks for Building Buddies is a social development programme which helps children with autism spectrum disorders and related social communication difficulties or other impulsive behaviours or social communication issues .

This course has a very specific structure, tailored to the particular needs of students.  Programme runs on request.
