Good morning mommies and daddies,

Yesterday was a special day for all students. It was the Oscar’s Night here in English Summer Vallclara. The day went through, as always kids had class in the morning and early afternoon. Then, taking advantage of another sunny day, we went to the swimming pool. Afterwards children played Olympic Games and got ready for such an elegant party.

The party had three main parts; first of all, the couples took some pictures together. Right after, there was a really fancy dinner where the monitors were the waiters. Finally there was a ceremony to award divers’ prizes. It was a great night, children loved it! Again, the turn its getting to its end and we won’t everyone to enjoy as much as possible.

Parents, remember you can send email for your kids to esfvallclara@englishsummer.com as well as follow us on facebook,twitter and flickr! And remember to read the blog to keep updated.

Доброе утро, дорогие мамы и папы!!!

Как же мы рады, что вы следите за нашими новостями!

Вчера был особенный день для каждого ребенка. У нас состоялась церемония вручения Оскар в лагере Вальклара. День пролетел достаточно быстро. Все дети были взволнованы и говорили только о вечере, с кем пойти, записаться ли на VIP-столик, что надеть. Прерывали эти мысли только спортивные игры и уроки английского и испанского языка. Учителя, как всегда, стараются разнообразить занятия различными играми, заданиями. Даже в перерыв дети не отрываются от учебного процесса и продолжают практиковать языковые навыки!

После очередной серии Олимпийских игр дети переоделись и прихорошились. Каждый спустился со своей парой по красной ковровой дорожке под приветственные овации вожатых и учителей.

После того, как все расселись по своим местам, у нас состоялся торжественный ужин с церемонией награждения Оскарами детей в различных номинациях. Для нас стало приятным сюрпризом, что дети подготовили свои награды для каждого вожатого и учителя! :)

Good Morning!

Yesterday was another regular day, with better weather than the previous day, which made for a lovely time in the swimming pool, which the kids loved.

It was also the last day of new content before the English exams today! The results of the exams let us see the progress of students, but also some students are leaving us at the end of the week, and the teachers need to write reports for these students.

All of our teachers work hard to create fun lessons for the children, where they can learn in a fun way. Yesterday class 1 was learning about clothes, and to help them remember the names of the clothes there was a fashion show with the children in the class.

Good Afternoon!

The overcast weather, and rain continued yesterday unfortunately, however this of course did not interfere with English Classes, but we did have to change the evening party. We had organised an outside Despicable Me party, but the monitors decided to play it safe and have Casino Night inside which ended up being a big hit with the children.

During the day we were fortunate enough that the rain stopped allowing the children to have an afternoon swim in the pool. It also stopped long enough for the kids to participate in some more of the sports half of the olympics.

The first of the English Challenges, which contributes to half of the olympic score, started yesterday with a particularly difficult crossword. The children, and even the teachers, really struggled with this rather cryptic crossword, which really stretched everyones minds and encouraged a lot of teamwork.

Finally the party, Casino Night, went off with a bang. The children were given froggy money, to play card games, bowling and spin the wheel, with. However the night was shaken up towards the end, when some pesky bandits, the English teachers, robbed the Casino! The children went mad with excitement, and we are pleased to report no children were harmed or taken hostage during the heist!

The children thoroughly enjoyed the caper, and the evening in general. While the weather has been undesirable, it hasn’t stopped the fun and excitement of the children in the camp, and we continue to look forward to the days ahead!

Good morning all,

Yesterday was a lovely day, the sun was out, the birds were cheeping and the students had English classes first thing in the morning, however this didn’t last long, as shortly after lunch, the weather took a turn for the worse.

The monitors spent all morning preparing an outdoor Roman party while the students were in class. However as the clouds came over, decided to play it safe and packed up the roman set to prevent it from being damaged by the fast coming wind and rain.

Not to fear however, the monitors always have a plan B. Quickly the monitors worked to set up, and most importantly the students loved it. The efforts of the monitors didn’t stop there, they also helped arrange new costumes for the children and assist them with designing a skit a skit for the carnival show.

We are very proud of our monitors who work so passionately and tirelessly for our students, so three cheers for them!

Good Morning!

Yesterday was the students first full day at Vallclara and it was a fun filled day for the students! The day started with some morning exercises to wake them up and get them ready for the day ahead.

After breakfast it was straight into English class, with our energetic teaching team ready to start teaching for the term! Each day we have three English classes and to make sure the students can stay focussed they have a break in between where they can get a snack, run around and get the blood flowing before the next class.

Yesterday the monitors took the students to the pool for a swim in the beautiful town pool. It was the perfect way for students to wind down after four hours of english classes.

Last night the Olympics began, and we had a guest appearance from the Queen and Mr. Bean. The students were divided into six teams, the bears, bees, dolphins, eagles, geese and snakes, with the snakes coming first place in the games for the night. The Olympic games in an English Summer camp wouldn’t be right without some sort of language challenges, so we have added an English challenge which will make up half of the points of the Olympics.

Good Morning!

Yesterday we were excited as the students started checking in from 4pm, and we are glad that every student arrived safely yesterday, which is the perfect way to start the term!

After saying goodbye to parents, we held our first assembly for the term, where we introduced students to English Summer-Vallclara! We also outlined the rules and expectations of the summer and introduced students to their enthusiastic monitors, who will be looking after the students for the term.

Afterward the students went to their first english class for testing. The tests allow us to see the levels of the students, so that they can be placed in a class at an appropriate level. Doing this allows the teachers to maximise class effectiveness and also allows all of our students to have the best possible learning experience.

Finally to wrap up the day, we held a party for the students to welcome them again to English Summer, and to get them excited for the weeks to come! We also introduced the students to our dear old friend Froggy!

We have added some high resolution photographs to the English Summer SA Flickr account, which you can follow here.
