At PEC we are committed to providing education all year round. Our teachers plan camps that run during summer and winter time. Our extra curricular camps combine a balanced mixture of educational learning as well as creative activities.
Previous winter and summer camps have followed themes such as: the seasons, carnival and seasides. Each unit focusses on every aspect of the UK curriculum allowing young minds to experience science and history through one immersive topic.
We encourage parents to book early.
SUMMER CAMP 2015
Pirate Camp Comes To An End.
After four weeks sailing the seas, Pirate Camp at PEC is coming to an end. We have seen a fantastic amount of learning taking place. With key vocabulary at the heart of the day, students have learnt the different pirate terms, names for the parts of a pirate ship as well as the names of the crew needed to sail the pirate ship.
Throughout the weeks students have taken part in a wide range of pirate themed activities. They have included sewing and making their own treasure pouches, creating their own pirate flags, writing descriptions of dangerous pirates, tea staining treasure maps and going on a treasure hunt and lastly crafting 3D pirate ships.
Our older students worked on producing written descriptions of their pirates as well as detailing older and more famous sea fairing pirates from the past. This was a great learning experience as students used iPads to research more about these villains of the sea. We learnt more about the different materials that float or sink and talked about why this happens. During a science experiment, some of our predictions were challenged as we tested different materials in water.
As well as different pirate related activities, children have been given time to communicate in English. Each morning starts with a small reading session where students either heard a story or read them independently. In the afternoon students played badminton outside or gold and table tennis indoors.
The first four weeks of PEC Summer Camp have been fantastic, with all students attending getting the most out of their day. We now start the second phase of our summer camp with Seasons starting on Monday. There are still places available.
Students will be spending each week on a different season, learning about the changes in weather, environment, animal behaviour and how each season can influence us.
