The Kids&Us Universe
At Kids&Us we offer a large variety of complementary activities and services to provide our students with an all-encompassing experience.
At Kids&Us we do not want English to stay just in the classroom. We want English to be an experience shared with those we love, and we know that there are a number of factors that help strengthen the learning experience: emotion, surprise, joy, experimentation, fantasy and emotional support.
That is why Kids&Us has created a universe of stimulating quality products which seek to expand and enrich our children’s contact with the English language.
Welcome to our world!
At Kids&Us, we believe that reading is a fantastic way to free children's imaginations. Our stories, games and readers for older children are complementary resources that help improve English comprehension and language learning. Our collection of educational games and resources is constantly being developed to expand and improve the range of products we provide our students with.
We want learning English to take place in a multi-dimensional way, which is essential for any kind of learning. A combination of varied inputs and interesting activities are used to stimulate all the senses.
Imagine a universe full of planets that each represent a particular theme. Whoever sets foot in this universe will discover never-ending stimuli in English. Kids&Us has created a universe of planets so that children can learn and have fun at the same time, doing workshops for short periods of time or doing activities during the school holidays.
What is Kids&Theatre?
Kids&Theatre is an extracurricular theatre activity in English, in addition to Kids&Us language classes. The course consists of weekly sessions culminating in the performance of a musical play at the end of each term.
Who is it for?
Kids&Theatre is for 4 to 7-year-old students who study English at Kids&Us. The plays and songs have been written by Kids&Us educational experts to ensure that the vocabulary and structures are suitable for the children's level.
There are between 6 and 10 children at most in each group, and children are not split up into age-based groups.
Where does it take place?
Kids&Theatre is conducted in the school as a complementary extracurricular activity, in addition to the Kids&Us courses.
How long does it last?
The Kids&Theatre course comprises 36 sessions + 6 extra sessions, which last for one hour.
What does Kids&Theatre consist of?
Classes are fun and lively. Rehearsals are alternated with acting activities and games involving mime, sound, movement, music and craft activities to make props that will be used in the play.
The teacher only uses English to communicate with students in Kids&Theatre classes. That way, English is not only used for the final performance but also throughout the entire process of preparing the play.
