We can confirm that from the 1st of September 2014 we will be using the new Cambridge Primary science, Cambridge primary mathematics, Cambridge Global English, Cambridge handwriting and Cambridge ICT starters with all our children in primary and lower secondary school from year one to year nine.
The teachers planning and preparation will be based around the units of each of the schemes and assessment will be done at the end of each unit in science and at the same time periodic assessment of ICT, mathematics and English. In addition each unit taught in maths and English will have a unit assessment at the end of each unit.
To support your children you will need to purchase the relevant text books for each series. You are advised to buy the books for the year group your child will be studying. Stage 3 is year 3, stage 4 year etc.

The University of Cambridge has over 100 libraries. The central library alone (the Cambridge University library, or the ‘UL’) has approximately 8 million volumes, and is able to request a free copy of every book published in the UK and Ireland.
One book in the CIS Festivalnaya library that I recommend is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.

Here at our school, each student can choose a club they like the most. In this issue, we would like to tell you more about the Journalism Club.
Dr. Carol Dweck devised the terms ‘fixed’ and ‘growth’ mindset to describe the attitudes people have about their learning and intelligence.
Global Perspectives is a new Cambridge course that we are implementing this academic year at Festivalnaya.
A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition.
