Our Partner Preschool

KCIS is partnered with KCIP, a preschool for children aged between 18 months and 5 years, which neighbours KCIS. For further information about the pre-school visit KCIP website.

Inspiring Every Child to Love Learning

During the time of COVID-19, KCIS has taken learning online. The Distance Learning programme is based on international best practices and takes into consideration appropriate child screen time, realistic concentration levels for different ages and the fact that each KCIS family has very different home life situations.

 

Every class has between 40 minutes and 2 hours of real time virtual learning through ZOOM each day. This takes into consideration realistic and appropriate screen time and concentration levels. During this time teachers introduce and teach new concepts, check in with students regarding their welfare and also go through assignments. Students also present work they have completed from home.

 

Each week, a Learning Grid is shared through Google Drive. This allows students and their parents to see all the tasks set by teachers for the whole week. Every class on the school timetable has an activity set. These activities are divided into recommended and bonus activities - ideally students will complete all the recommended activities, and bonus activities are included for students and families who want or need more activities during this time. The Learning Grid allows students and parents to work at their own pace throughout the week. 

 

Each activity has its own instructions laid out by the teacher and accompanying PowerPoints (often narrated by the teacher) or videos to support the activity and explain it in more depth if necessary.

 

Students upload their work to ClassDojo, a learning platform which allows students, teachers and parents to view and feedback on completed work. 

 

We try to maintain our active learning through the Distance Learning programme, reducing on the number of worksheets and encouraging students to make videos, take photos, complete presentations, experiments and challenges that are a closer reflection of how we learn at school. 

 

Each week we also host online whole school events. This includes a weekly quiz, written and hosted by students and our weekly school assembly, hosted by students, discussing topical issues, school values and showcasing student work.
