ICS Côte d’Azur Kindergarten Activities
Jennifer Wallace

Get a glimpse of what fun trips our Kindergarten classes have been on in the past.

We can’t wait to be able to go on exciting and fun trips again soon. Over the last few years our Kindergarten classes have enjoyed some really interesting activities including:

  • A visit from a local beekeeper
  • A visit from a dog trainer about how to respect and interact with dogs!
  • A trip to Phoenix park in Nice
  • A trip to a goat farm (Chèvrerie du Bois d’Amon) where the children tasted some cheese, watched goats being milked and met some donkeys too!
  • A visit to the Musée Océanographique Monaco

And we celebrated events like Halloween, Christmas and Carnival at school with fancy dress and fun games!

Full STE(A)M Ahead

Exciting plans are underway for creating a STEM hub in 2021!

“We foster curiosity and questioning through play and project-based learning.”

Exciting plans are underway for creating a STEM hub in 2021 for innovative learning at the heart of the school. In the meantime, we will be gradually introducing robotics and coding to groups of students as part of our partnership with Lego Education, as well as investigating STEM inspired projects to enhance our Primary Years Programme (PYP) investigations.

In PY3-6 every child has access to a personal iPad, and in KG1-PY2 each class has a set of shared iPads (10 per class). Specialist subject teachers (EFL,FLE, Music and Sports) also have a set of iPads dedicated to their classes. Furthermore, we have an Apple TV in each classroom, as well as 4 smart boards distributed among the classes. Our teachers receive continuous iPad training so they can use them for a wide range of subjects.

We can’t wait to share more updates with you!
