Primary School – Lyon International School

In the Early Childhood Education group (EYU: Transition-, Pre-, Junior and Senior Kindergarten) and Primary School (grades 1-5), children’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm form the basis of an exploratory approach to learning with using the methodology of the International Baccalaureate. Primary School Program (PYP) for which the school is fully accredited. This is implemented using the game approach in EYU.

PYP prepares students for active, caring lifelong learning that demonstrates respect for themselves and others and is able to participate actively and responsibly in the world around them. Using PYP’s child-centered curriculum model, ISL educators create a stimulating and diverse learning environment that allows each student to develop to their potential. Children are encouraged to share their diverse social and cultural experiences and develop the ability to think analytically, make connections and be independent and creative participants in their own learning. Their personal development is facilitated by the learner profile, which is at the heart of the philosophy of PYP and IB as a whole. nine0005

A variety of assessment methods, including student self-assessment, self-assessment and peer assessment, allow for continuous assessment of learning and regular feedback from both children and parents.

In addition to language (reading, writing, and speaking), mathematics, science, technology, and social studies, we offer a rich program of visual arts, music, movement, and drama to stimulate creativity in all areas of the curriculum, as well as weekly pastoral , social and physical education activities contribute to further personal development. Primary students also benefit from a balanced physical education program as part of their weekly schedule, using facilities such as our small gym and our newly installed artificial turf sports field. The elementary students also use the local municipal swimming pool during part of the year. nine0005

English Beginners in Grade 1 and above are offered ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) support for an additional fee if needed, and all children learn French as a foreign language or language of their home country.

EYU and elementary students benefit from frequent extracurricular visits and trips associated with their study blocks, and all grades 1 through 5 receive an annual residential trip of at least three days. The school prioritizes travel to France or nearby border countries in order to minimize its carbon footprint and make the most of the wealth of opportunities available without traveling too far. nine0005

The elementary school had an IB PYP evaluation visit in October 2021 and a group of visitors received rave reports showing that the school had met all requirements for IB re-membership. However, ISL’s biggest reward was hearing from them that the word they heard most often in interviews with students, teachers, and parents was “happy”!

Festivals and projects

The work of the VIII International Youth Orchestra Academy has ended in Yekaterinburg. This year, along with the artists of the Ural Youth Symphony Orchestra, 10 musicians of the Donetsk Philharmonic became its participants.

The Academy’s two-week rehearsal cycle was summed up by three performances by the united team – the International Youth Tchaikovsky Orchestra. Two of them – with a program of symphonic film hits from Hollywood and Soviet cinema – took place as part of the “Air Season with the Philharmonic” on the main stage of Mayakovsky Park. The final one was held in the Great Hall of the Sverdlovsk Philharmonic. On September 6, the Tchaikovsky Orchestra performed the Serenade for Strings and the Second Symphony by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. By tradition, the Academy completed its work with the music of the great Russian composer, whose childhood years were spent in the Urals. nine0005

In 2022, the International Youth Orchestral Academy was headed by the new Chief Conductor of the UMSO, winner of the Evgeny Svetlanov International Competition Dmitry Filatov. According to him, “The Academy is a kind of creative union created for the sake of joint creative enrichment and enjoyment of the process of making music. Each of the participants is an accomplished musician with his own style. They draw something new from each other, there is a creative exchange and growth. For 2 weeks of rehearsals, group classes, master classes and joint performances, they became a single team. nine0005
