Packed with fun and adventure, our juniors will walk away with a curious ‘explorer’ spirit.
Junior Explorer has all the elements of our popular Explorer series, but has been adapted to meet the needs and abilities of students aged 7 – 10 years old.
Our focus is on encouraging your child to build their confidence, practise their language learning at all times, gain eye-opening experiences and meet new friends from all over the world.
On this course, your child will:
- Develop their English in reading, writing, listening and speaking
- Expand their vocabulary and improve pronunciation
- Gain critical life skills for learning, life and work
- Build on their confidence in using English
- Create a portfolio of work to use back at home
- Meet new friends from across the world
Lessons are specifically designed to engage juniors and develop their critical skills at this key stage in their life. Our project-based learning approach means students work to produce something together while developing new skills, vocabulary and confidence using English.
This approach helps students learning faster and more successfully. It also guarantees that students will learn something new every time.
Summer themes for Juniors include:
- My Body
- You & Me
- Super Food
- Amazing Animals
Led by a specialist Activity Leader, our junior-friendly activities open up opportunities for students to develop new interests in a variety or areas while practising their English. This helps students develop a natural, fluent use of the language.
In the evening, students also have an activity programme which includes various social events like competitions, treasure hunts and film nights.
Gaining new life experiences
There is no better way to learn about British life and culture than to experience it for yourself. Our juniors will visit some of the UK’s famous destinations!
Study tours are so important to our learning approach. Students prepare for their study tour in class and have educational tasks to complete during their trip, this is then discussed in lessons afterwards.
Enjoy study tours to exciting attractions like:
Museum of Zoology
The University Museum of Zoology is one of Cambridge’s major attractions. Their brilliant galleries showcase the diversity of animal life, from marsupials to monkeys, mammoths to manatees.
Students will discover stories of extinction, survival, evolution and exploration.
Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre
Get hands-on in the three galleries, packed with activities perfect for 6 to 12 year olds. Find out about Roald Dahl’s school pranks, peek into the author’s original Writing Hut, and discover how Roald Dahl’s real-life adventures inspired his stories. The Museum puts your imagination centre-stage to help students create their own stories – just like Roald Dahl did.
Paradise Wildlife Park
Paradise Wildlife Park is the leading zoo in the UK and Europe for ‘animal experiences.’ Students will have incredible access to some of the world’s most exotic and endangered species, including lions and tigers, meerkats and lemurs. These experiences are very safe, educational and allow our juniors to establish special bonds with some of our animals.
