FEATURED PROGRAMMES OVERVIEW

English 


The English course will cover key topics, with a focus on grammar and appropriate writing style. Word origin and structure will be the main topic for the first term, helping students see the building blocks of meaning. Sentence structure, syntax and logic will be the main focus for the second term, with particular attention toward correct verb usage. Writing voice and style conventions will be covered in the final term, allowing the students to create original writing with better skills and more confidence. 


Literacy development is the goal of English language curriculum. Literacy learning is a communal project and the teaching of literacy skills is embedded across the curriculum. 


However, it is the language curriculum that is dedicated to instruction in the areas of knowledge and skills – listening and speaking, reading, writing, and viewing and representing – on which literacy is based. 

• Students will read various texts to promote a keen interest in literature. They will utilize language to express creativity, learning and reflection. 

• In accordance with the holistic philosophy, language will be used to further develop personal growth and social interaction. 

• Topics under consideration are fairy tales, myths, idioms, business vocabulary

• Each unit will contain a listening, speaking, reading and writing component. 

French 


In our French Program, the students will: French will be taught daily beginning at JK and will be enhanced with French extra-curricular activities/workshops. Our students will have ample opportunity to practice their newly acquired language skills with an array of engaging and age-appropriate activities. 


In our French Program, the students will:

• Develop a solid foundation in grammar,

• Build a rich and broad vocabulary,

• Acquire written and oral communication and comprehension skills.


Students will have the opportunity to progress through grade- related Math, Science, History and Geography topics in French.

For example...

We are discussing the following topics:

Grade 4 Months of the year, numbers and hour/time of the day; common expressions (phrase-starters, questions) 

Grade 5 Fruits/vegetables, dairy products; 1st group verbs and expressions using the most common verbs

Together as a group we work on audition, exploring a variety of authentic video and audio documents.  

 

 Math and Logic


1. Acquisition of the system of math knowledge and skills which are necessary for using in practical activities, study related subjects, continuing education;

2.Intellectual development: the formation of individual qualities necessary for full human life in today's society:·

the clarity and precision of thought,
critical thinking,
logic,
elements of algorithmic culture,
spatial ideas,
the ability to overcome difficulties;

3.Conceptions about the ideas and methods of mathematics as the universal language of science and technology, modeling tools of phenomena and processes;

4.Attitude to math as part of human culture, understanding the importance of math for scientific and technological progress;

5.The systematic development of the concept of numbers, operations with numbers;

6.Developing skills of translation of practical problems into math language.

 
Math in Erudite School.
 

 Science. Physics


The general purpose of the programme: 

1. Acquisition of knowledge about the fundamental physics laws and principles that underlie the modern physics picture of the world;

2. Intellectual development of interests and creative abilities in the process of knowledge and skills in physics using various sources of information and modern information technologies;

3. Learning to apply knowledge of physics to explain various physical phenomena and properties of materials, practical use of physics knowledge;

4. The skills to evaluate the accuracy of the data of natural science;

5. The utilization of knowledge and skills to solve practical problems of everyday life, safety of his/her own life, environmental management and environmental protection, a sense of responsibility for environmental protection;

6. Belief in the possibility of raising the knowledge of the laws of nature; 

7. The need for cooperation in joint tasks, respect for another’s opinion when discussing the problems of natural science content.


     
     

     Science. Biology


    The core topics will correspond to the provincial curriculum; however, more emphasis will be put on the use of mathematical methods in problem-solving and hands-on activities. Experimental work will be included in variety of forms; simple lab experiments, field trips, videos, etc. 

    We have studied in 1st term three Kingdoms: Bacteria, Archaea and Protists. We have discussed their cells and organelles, linking specific structures to their adaptive values. We have studied evidence that suggests how the eukaryotic cell evolved from its prokaryotic ancestor. We have learn about important roles microorganisms and algae play in ecosystems and how humans use them. In the winter and spring semester, we are going to elaborate on the structure and equilibrium of ecosystems. We'll study how essential elements are cycled between the biota and abiota and how each segment of the ecosystem, including humans, can disturb the equilibrium.


     

    For example...

    Ecosystems. What elements do we need? What is CO2 and why is it important to have it? What are the consequences of having too much or too little? What is the outcome of global climate change for the biota?

     

     Drama

    Our drama program features a range of theatrical styles including shadow and puppet theaters, mimicry, improvisational acting and traditional plays. Students will explore expression through game and activities as well as more serious productions for the school concerts. Instruction will focus on depth and sincerity of expressed emotion as well as concentration and teamwork.


     
     

     Physical Education


    Students will experience a variety of activity both indoors and out. We will be playing a variety of team-building games and coordination activities in the fall, followed by outdoor skating in the winter and track and field sports in the spring.


    Students will also benefit from a physiotherapist-led fitness program to build athletic and healthy physique.The purpose of our lessons is to promote the harmonious development of personality, to ensure the implementation of creative and motor capacities, to improve health and to instill the skills of a healthy lifestyle. We've designed a set of special exercises for the children of our school in order for them to develop the following personal qualities:

    - Strengthening of the muscular system;

    - Ensuring the development of physical abilities;

    - Formation of correct posture, proper gait;

    - Prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system;

    - Training in basic skills applied;

    - Improving the health of the body;

    - Developing of moral and volitional qualities;

    - Education organization, discipline, ability to work in a team;

    -Removal of the neuro-muscular tension;
