Introducing Global Campus Junior: learning made fun for early year’s students

by Expat Life

Nord Anglia Global Campus takes education beyond the classroom. Bringing together our 69 schools around the world, it is a fundamental part of how we teach our students to be truly global citizens. The highly personalised learning platform provides a safe space for students to connect and collaborate with each other, it offers a huge variety of engaging extra-curricular activities and is a part of how Regents students explore independent learning.  

Following many years of success with our older students, we are thrilled to have now launched a version specifically for our youngest year groups. Whether in the classroom or learning at home Nord Anglia Global Campus Junior is now live for students to enjoy, wherever they are in the world. 

 

“Many of our Primary students like to engage with the Global Campus challenges during lunch and break times in the STEAM Machine”. Mr. Edwards, STEAM Coordinator & Teacher, Regents International School Pattaya. 

Exploring Global Campus Junior 

Introducing our new features, exclusively created for Regents International School Pattaya early years students. 

Story Stacks 

Story Stacks is an exciting weekly staple for our youngest book lovers. This new audio book launches every Monday with story time favourites specifically aimed at children under the age of eight.  

To keep our listeners excited, we have plenty of fun and educational follow up activities available to enjoy afterwards. Alongside each audio book are a series of tasks for children to complete. These are designed to complement the key areas of the early years curriculum: language, art and design, literacy, maths, understanding the world, personal development and physical development. Every task has been created especially to ensure early years students learn all they can from each week’s story.  

Forest School  

Learning should be an adventure! Introducing the Forest School, an explorative Nord Anglia teaching tool designed to inspire curiosity in every young mind. Each week Nord Anglia students around the world share in the fun of a new leaf appearing on the Forest School tree. When the leaf falls it unlocks a new activity! This could be anything from a town and city scavenger hunt, to a mindfulness task or guided mini beast research. Combining outdoor learning with play, the Forest School has been created specifically to teach children important skills like investigation and observation whilst exploring the nature on their doorstep.  

Junior Elements   

We know that engaging young children in many of life’s most important lessons isn’t always easy! That is why we have created Junior Elements to make the process simple for children and parents alike. This section of Global Campus Junior is all about helping early years students learn new skills through methods which encourage them to practice and retain what they’ve learnt.  

Every project in Junior Elements is designed around a simple three step learning process: learning something new, practicing the skill and producing something afterwards to demonstrate what has been learnt. Each month we launch a new themed project. This might be something like ‘managing risk’, for example. This includes lessons on how to stay safe at home, such as exploring which items are safe to touch in the house, and can be put into practice through a task like reading a book afterwards to identify all of the risks that can be found within the story.  

Supporting Regents parents 

Young children need lots of stimuli to stay engaged and we know that this can be a challenge for parents who have lots to juggle. We have created our Global Campus Junior activities so that they can all be completed offline to reduce screen time, without the ongoing guidance of a teacher or parent.  

We know our parents want to do all they can to help their children flourish. To support this, we’ve also created a top tips section with Global Campus Junior which is packed with useful information for parents on how to guide their children, understanding effective learning techniques and getting the most out of the platform.  

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) 

The IPC is the perfect springboard for Secondary school as children develop their academic knowledge, skills and understanding whilst also developing the personal qualities and characteristics to help them flourish in our increasingly connected and dynamic world. In short, the IPC unlocks student’s imagination and transforms their education.
