Summer School

Age 9 to 12

Each activity lasts for one week, and is sometimes repeated in the second week. The exception to this are ESL and Design a Website, which will continue in the second week where it finished in the first week.

We are very excited about the two Exploratory Science Classes - which will delve into the Forensic Sciences.

Furthermore, for the fourth year running CIS Summer School will be offering the opportunity for students to take part in an original workshop, “Stories to Life”, devised by Rachel E. Stanners. We are hoping to work this year to develop the workshop further by creating alternative possibilities of performance to include more music and possibly the creation of their very own characters!

Graphics Editing and Design Tools: Fireworks8, Flash8, Flashpaper2, Photoshop, Image Ready.

 


^ Morning Sport

With the second semester of the 2008/2009 school year well under way, summer school 2009 is fast approaching. The sports program will again feature a wide selection of activities available to students. At this stage we are focusing on a multi-sport approach. This will involve a number of sports where skill development and application will be the focus during the first half of each summer school day. The sports will be selected so that they meet studentsí needs. We will survey the students in the near future to ascertain which sports they would prefer to take part in.

 


^ Irish Dancing

Irish Dancing 4

Spend your summer learning Irish dancing!

            Irish dancing is an energetic and challenging form of dancing, which provides the children with great exercise and fun experiences to lively music.
During the course dancers will work with basic steps and coordination exercises, leading up to a light choreography.

Dancers need no previous experience with Irish dancing. All you need to do is to bring gym clothes and an interest in learning new steps.

^ Sport

The summer sports programme is designed to give the participants a chance to show, improve or maybe uncover talents and skills in a number of different activities. During the programme the participants will all do Volleyball, Basketball and Soccer, but also be given the choice between other sports and activities such as Badminton, Hockey, Rugby, Touch-Football, Ultimate-Frisbee, 'tag rugby', modified cricket games, Danish Rounders and others.

All days will include 2 different activities for all participants. The activities can take place indoors as well as outdoors, so it is very important to bring both indoor and outdoor shoes.
The weather in Denmark is never very reliable so warmer clothes for outdoor activities might be needed. No matter whether we are indoor or outdoor, we plan to have a good time being active for the full hour and a half, so bringing a water-bottle for re-hydration is strongly recommended.
