Looking for a fun and educational way to learn about another country? Look no further than our BRIT WEEK / SEMANA BRIT! Our students have been hard at work researching all things about Scotland, from its history and geography to its traditional sports and celebrities. And what better way to learn than by experiencing it all firsthand? This year we’ve organised a range of activities based on our research, from online visiting Scottish castles to enjoying traditional Scottish legends by watching video clips. So why not join us for an amazing learning experience you won’t forget?
Thank you all students and teachers for participating in our Semana BRIT!!

The CARLEE teacher's visit to observe lessons during BRIT WEEK was a great success. The coordinator implemented the advice given by the teacher and put it into practice in two sessions with 2nd and 3rd Year ESO students. During these sessions, both groups of students had opportunities to learn through different activities such as storytelling while drawing, mediation skills with our foreign language assistant Mckenzie O'Connor, as well as playing running dictation using bullet worksheets. These activities allowed for peer assessment which enabled them to gain a further understanding of their own learning process and that of their peers.
Overall, this meaningful learning experience provided an opportunity for all involved parties - teachers included - to gain insight on how best practices can be applied in order for everyone involved in teaching-learning processes to benefit from it; not only did they get feedback on what worked best but also what could be improved upon or changed altogether if needed so that more effective outcomes are achieved going forward. This is especially true when dealing with diverse student populations who have different needs which must be addressed accordingly if successful teaching-learning experiences are desired.
