Dasha is an exceptional student who has made outstanding progress in all curriculum areas.
Arriving in Reception with no English, Dasha quickly adapted to her new surroundings and learnt English at an outstanding rate. Supported by her peers, her class teacher and the EAL (English as an Additional Language) specialists who have an excellent programme of integrated learning, with minimum disruption to regular timetable class activities.
Dasha was born in St Petersburg in Russia and came to Shanghai with her family in August 2011.
When in Year 1, Dasha was already producing written work at the level expected for her age and loved to extend herself in Numeracy through applying her skills to everyday problems. Now in Year 2, Dasha’s qualities of hard work, determination and focus are enabling her to work at levels beyond that expected for her age in Literacy and Numeracy.
We are in no doubt that Dasha will perform exceedingly well, achieving top results in the SATs assessments at the end of the year.
