After School Activities in English for Kids

Swimming Activities, Activities, Sports and Fitness, Useful Information on 11 September 2015 by Larissa

We have a huge and expanding list of after school activities in English, interestingly, many of these are parent-run groups wanting to share their passion for a particular hobby or pursuit. A wide range of courses are on offer covering artistic, sporting and academic classes for school aged children down to toddler and baby classes. Some have started, most are about to. Either way, if you’re interested, now is the time to get in touch with the organisers.

ENGLISH LITERACY FOR NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS

Class Acts BOHEMIAN BILINGUALS* (ages 6 and over)
Bohemian Bilinguals (BoBili*) for school-aged kids fluent in English who would like to develop their speaking, reading and writing skills in a supportive and creative environment. Most of the children in these classes are bilingual and attend Czech schools where they are at a different linguistic level from their classmates. BoBili strives to tailor the classes to the students’ needs while also encouraging them. BoBili classes balance spelling and grammar with activities and games that promote literacy and creative writing and give the children the opportunity to make friends with other English-speaking children. My daughter attended this program last year and it has advanced her literacy and interest in English tremendously. You can join your child to any of the courses, it depends on their age and ability. There is a need for several of the classes to increase in number particularly the Londýnská group for year 5 students. Registration is via the website and payment can be made upfront or paid in instalments over the 2 semesters.
Bohemian Bilingual Courses will be running in following locations:
Prague 3 - ZŠ Jiřího z Poděbrad - for 3rd and 4th graders
Prague 3 - ZŠ Londýnská - for 2nd and 5th graders
Prague 5 - FZŠ O. Chlupa - for 3rd, 4th and 7th graders
Prague 5 - ZŠ Drtinova - for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders
