当教学没有黑板 FCG Outdoor Learning
当人们在谈不用黑板教学，实质在谈论什么？是让学生拿着 Ipad 上课与做作业？还是在谈论未来教学？《中国未来学校2.0：概念框架》在描绘未来学校时表示，“真正成为一所未来学校，要改变教育模式，首先要改变的就是教学空间。”广州市斐特思学校的校园建筑已实现这点。
How do teachers teach without a blackboard? Teach with tablets? Teach with technology? "China's Future School 2.0: A Conceptual Framework" states: "To truly become a school of the future, schools must change their education model; and the first thing to change is the teaching space." At FCG this has been achieved.
Community Design in A Global Context
Community Design is one of the core courses in MYP Grade 8, requiring students to integrate their knowledge of MYP8 disciplines and 5 learning skills to explore the functions of community in complex global contexts. Students engage with the local community, providing service and support through projects such as:
Tree Reflection Areas--Students make the most of the available space on campus to create a comfortable area to relax.
Respect for campus environment – Students visit our campus maintenance teams to learn about their working conditions and call on teachers and students to protect the environment – understanding that even small changes make a difference.
We encourage students to learn beyond books and out of the classroom, to explore with interdisciplinary thinking, to experience with open mind, and to apply what they have learned in changing community and outside world.
The Spirit of Olympus
The FCG Festival of Sport is an annual event where students work together and support each other as teammates. of FCG. In line with our commitment to holistic education we encourage students to strike a balance between academic learning and sports. Through developing a passion for sport they will maintain a positive attitude towards life. The school is equipped with a full range of high-quality facilities, such as a FIFA football field, FIBA basketball stadium, heated swimming pool, volleyball and squash courts, climbing wall, indoor golf hall, and gym.
English Course - A Campus Adventure
英语怎样学才能既有趣又能娴熟地被运用？小学部的 Owen 老师带着他的学生探索了整个美丽的校园，教授他们如何用英语正确地描述从一个地方到另一个地方，和准确地运用介词来表示位置和方向。学子们拿着地图，在 200 亩的校园内里充分地运用英语听、说、读、写的能力来完成探险任务，让英语学习充满乐趣和吸引力。除此之外，通过了解校园每座建筑的设计理念和文化底蕴，他们对 FCG 又有了深刻的认识。更重要的是，每位学子都乐在其中。
How can English be fun to learn and skillfully used? Mr. Owen took his PS students on a tour of the beautiful campus, teaching them how to correctly describe the route in English, and how to accurately indicate location and direction with prepositions. With maps in hand, the students made full use of their language skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing to complete the adventure on the 200-acre campus. In addition, they learnt about the design concept and cultural heritage of each building on campus. It was a great experience, enjoyed by all!
1+∞ Equestrian Enrichement
Last week we had our first professional Equestrian Enrichment class. Originating from Britain horse riding is an elegant and niche sport full of fun and challenges, demanding courage and a strong body. Under the guidance of the trainers, students learnt about horsemanship, experienced the fun of riding and feeding horses, and broadened their minds.
与高尔夫一样，马术作为一项小众的运动项目，除了自身的健身与观赏价值之外，在一定程度上提高了学生在海外一流大学申请的竞争力。不少精英家庭从小培养孩子学习高尔夫或马术，不少孩子凭借出色的体育专长获得了世界前 100 大学抛来的橄榄枝。
Another benefit of horse riding is that it may improve the competitive edge of students applying to first-rate universities overseas as children from elite families often learn golf or horsemanship from a young age, and have their sporting expertise valued by leading world universities.
Splash Day -Early Years Education(EY)
What is water? What is the state of the water? What is it used for? How do children overcome the fear of swimming? If it's too boring to teach a child this knowledge through books, then water splashing is a wonderful way to help children improve their general knowledge and understanding of water.
Unit of Inquiry - Arbor Day
斐特思幼儿园拥有独立的大型的游乐园、STEM 教室、木工房、剧院、图书馆、攀岩墙、大面积户外活动区域和生态种植园。能满足展形式多样的主题探究课的需求。如IBPYP 主题探究之世界怎样运作，我们以植树节的形式带着孩子在户外学习根、茎、叶、花、果的知识；一起种植多肉植物；发挥创意，用蔬菜做拼贴画；到生态种植园植树，了解自然规律、四季变化，春耕秋收的知识。
With a large amusement park, STEM classrooms, woodworking room, theatre, library, climbing wall, large outdoor activity area and eco-garden, FCG EY is well-equipped to carry out various types of thematic inquiry, for example, the IBPYP inquiry project, ‘How the world works’. With perfect timing for Arbor Day, we took children outdoors to observe roots, stems, leaves, flowers and fruits, planted succulents, made collages with vegetables, and planted trees – all helping the children understand the laws of nature, the changing seasons and an introduction to farming.
Reading is as Important as Experiencing
We live in a big world where there are so many places to see, people to meet, and experiences to be had. In addition to the outdoor teaching on campus, we extend the "classroom" outside the school, so our students develop great vision, broad minds, strong will, independence and confidence.
Perseverance Programme - outdoor events for teachers, students and parents. Developing a strong attitude towards wind and rain, our students challenge themselves to conquer a peak each year, learning perseverance and persistence along the way.
Field Week - Students participate in our autumn harvest festival and learn to appreciate the value of food.
Environmental awareness activities include trips to museums, zoos, aquariums and an ecological jungle. The learning journey for our students involves connecting theoretical knowledge with the real world, and inspiring innovation and creation.
We hope that through this innovative form of teaching, learning can be a joy that is eagerly anticipated by our students. No matter who they will be in the future, they will have a lifelong passion for exploring things and maintain lifelong learning in their changing world. We hope they will develop close relationships with their natural surroundings, showing appreciation, awe, curiosity and respect.
