Last Thursday, we spent the morning in the ISBerne Early Learning Center (ELC) and watched our students prepare for Friday’s Thanksgiving celebration. We asked Miss Allison to talk about what a special place the ELC is for play and learning. The centre is located in the charming old Gümligen Post Office, a traditional chalet at the edge of campus, and includes a garden and outdoor play space. Miss Cook shared how she and her colleagues, Miss Desta, Miss Janny, and Miss Trish, create a warm, inviting and loving environment for our youngsters. The ELC is an important introduction for students to the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.
Do you know someone with young children who may want to know more about the Early Learning Center? We encourage you to connect them to us! Send us a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org or recommend a visit. We cannot wait to showcase the magical moments happening in our school each and every day.
It’s all about strong relationships surrounding students: A typical day at the ISBerne Elementary SchoolPosted: November 9, 2012
In this short interview, our Principal, Mr Scott Jackson, shares what a “typical day” is like for the young students at the ISBerne Elementary School. He continues by discussing the quality relationships between the teachers and parents and how they are critical to each student’s success. It all starts with a special group of diverse teachers, carefully selected and committed to creating a rich learning environment. From morning fitness to mathematical enquiry, and from foreign and native language classes to chances to work with innovative technology tools, the ISBerne elementary students have focused and fun daily routines. And at the end of the day, for Mr Jackson, it all comes down to a focused commitment to building strong ties between the school and the home.
In this clip, ISBerne elementary school physical education teacher Lena Lundberg talks about the Perceptual Motor Programme, where students learn to develop skills such as Language, Reading, Writing, Math, Memory, Problem Solving, and PE skills…as well as gain confidence. They do this for 20 minutes each morning through different activities focusing on five spheres for formal learning; Balance, Locomotion, Fitness, Eye-Tracking, Eye-Hand and Eye-Foot Coordination.
