Introducing Global Campus Junior: learning made fun for early years students

15 November 2020

Nord Anglia Global Campus takes education beyond the classroom. Bringing together our 69 schools around the world, it is a fundamental part of how we teach our students to be truly global citizens. The highly personalised learning platform provides a safe space for students to connect and collaborate with each other, and offers a huge variety of engaging extra-curricular activities. It is an essential part of how The British International School Abu Dhabi students explore independent learning.

Following many years of success with our older students, we are thrilled to have now launched a version specifically for our youngest year groups. Whether in the classroom or learning at home via our virtual school experience, Nord Anglia Global Campus Junior is now live for students to enjoy, wherever they are in the world.

Exploring Global Campus Junior

Introducing our new features, exclusively created for The British International School Abu Dhabi Early Years students:

Story Stacks

Story Sacks is an exciting weekly staple for our youngest book lovers. This new audio book launches every Monday with story time favourites specifically aimed at children under the age of eight. Around the world our early years students can enjoy beloved tales like The Gruffalo or The Hungry Caterpillar, read aloud by their teachers and occasional guest appearances from the authors themselves!

To keep our listeners excited, we have plenty of fun and educational follow-up activities available to enjoy afterwards. Alongside each audio book are a series of seven tasks for children to complete. These are designed to complement the key areas of the early years curriculum: language, art and design, literacy, maths, understanding the world, personal development and physical development. Every task has been created especially to ensure early years students learn all they can from each week’s story.

Forest School

Learning should be an adventure! Introducing the Forest School, an explorative Nord Anglia teaching tool designed to inspire curiosity in every young mind. Each week Nord Anglia students around the world share in the fun of a new leaf appearing on the Forest School tree. When the leaf falls it unlocks a new activity! This could be anything from a town and city scavenger hunt, to a mindfulness task or guided mini beast research. Combining outdoor learning with play, the Forest School has been created specifically to teach children important skills like investigation and observation whilst exploring the nature on their doorstep.

Junior Elements 

We know that engaging young children in many of life's most important lessons is not always easy! That is why we’ve created Junior Elements to make the process simple for children and parents alike. This section of Global Campus Junior is all about helping early years students learn new skills through methods which encourage them to practice and retain what they’ve learnt.

Every project in Junior Elements is designed around a simple three-step learning process: learning something new, practising the skill and producing something afterwards to demonstrate what they have learnt. Each month we launch a new themed project. This might be something like ‘managing risk’, for example. This includes lessons on how to stay safe at home, such as exploring which items are safe to touch in the house, and can be put into practice through a task like reading a book afterwards to identify all of the risks that can be found within the story.

Supporting The British International School Abu Dhabi parents

Young children need lots of stimuli to stay engaged and we know that this can be a challenge for parents who have lots to juggle, especially if the whole family is learning and working from home. We have created our Global Campus Junior activities so that they can all be completed offline to reduce screen time, without the ongoing guidance of a teacher or parent.

We know our parents want to do all they can to help their children flourish. To support this, we have also created a top tips section with Global Campus Junior which is packed with useful information for parents on how to guide their children, understanding effective learning techniques and getting the most out of the platform.
