Everything you need to know about our November/December Open House
Would you like to experience how we teach? Our Open House events are an opportunity for parents and young learners to explore our facilities, meet our friendly Academic team and have some fun. Here’s all you need to know about our upcoming Singapore dates.
Who is it for?
Our next Open House event is for parents and all young learners, from Early Years (three to six years old) through to Secondary (up to 15 years). Come along with your child to discover our motivating, interactive and engaging learning style first-hand, and ask any questions you may have.
What will happen on the day?
You’ll get the chance to see how our highly qualified and passionate teachers provide a uniquely British Council learning experience. There will be a limited number of free trial lessons for Nursery 2 and all Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary year groups, lasting around one hour. We highly recommend that you book your preferred time slot as far in advance as you can.
Learn more about our curriculum, and the ways in which we strive to nurture confidence in the classroom and beyond. You might also be taking home some prizes – we’ll be organising storytelling and a number of fun fringe activities complete with goodie bags for everyone to enjoy.
Here’s a look at some of the exciting trial lessons we have lined up. You can view the full two-day schedule with lesson descriptions when you register via our Open House page.
Our Nursery courses are designed to prepare your child to learn with confidence. We'll meet Shaun the Sheep's cousin, Timmy, starting with some fun songs and focusing on the vocabulary that will feature in the Learning Time with Timmy video we will watch together. We’ll then answer some simple comprehension activities before learning today's letter, 's’, and finishing with a craft activity.
Our aim is to nurture Lower Primary students to become creative thinkers and confident communicators. We’ll read a story about a young boy and his set of unhappy crayons. The story contains letters written by each of the crayons in his pencil case who are unhappy with him for different reasons. In the final part of the lesson, learners will plan their own letter for a colour not featured in the book.
The British Council’s Secondary courses place a strong emphasis on learning English for the real world. We’ll look at an excerpt from George Orwell’s classic novel, 1984 and discuss the main themes of the text before reading for detail so that students can explore the writer’s purpose. We will also look at some challenging vocabulary from the text, and engage students in some collaborative work. Finally, learners will share their ideas and opinions on the text to demonstrate their understanding and encourage critical thinking.
What are the perks for attendees?
Not only do we hope you’ll enjoy a fun and informative day, we’ll also be offering exclusive perks for everyone who attends our Open House. As a thank you, enjoy S$100 off course fees for new sign-ups made on the day and a S$60 waiver of the course registration fee.
