Summary: Besides the swimming program, Wellington College China also focuses on other sports and activities, such as football, tennis, gymnastics, skateboarding, kung fu, basketball, golf and others.

Shanghai, China, November 5, 2019 – Sports and physical activities are very important for a child’s overall growth and development. This is the reason why Wellington College China focuses a lot on sporting activities of their pupils, besides the academic programs. Children can enroll in different sporting programs as per their interest. The school provides opportunities in basketball, football, golf, gymnastics, kung fu, skateboarding, swimming, tennis and others. They have the complete facilities for pupils to engage in a sporting activity with fun and safety.

For example, the school has introduced the Children swimming in Shanghai program that is aimed at improving the swimming abilities of the children. At the same time, they are given opportunity to groom up as a professional swimmer. According to the spokesperson of the Wellington College China, their swimming academy could be equally helpful for both beginners as well as advanced swimmers. The academy is led by Grace Wang, who is the former competitive swimmer. As a qualified swimming coach, she is available to offer her guidance to children who want to become professional swimmers in the future. Grace starts her training with the basic swimming lessons and gradually tries to improve the swimming capabilities of kids.

According to Grace, she first tries to make children comfortable and confident in the water environment. At the Children swimming in Shanghai Academy, children are taught breathing techniques to help stay calm while in water. With their proper leg-focused movement, beginners can learn to swim with confidence. The swimming academy has different swimming programs with 10 sessions and 15 sessions each, respectively. The classes are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Pupils can choose from morning, afternoon and evening sessions. Each swimming session is designed in a manner to gradually improve swimming abilities of the kids.

During the swimming sessions at the Children swimming in Shanghai Academy, every pupil learns swimming under the personal guidance of Grace Yang. The swimming training program is planned affordable, so that pupils can explore their swimming abilities and can become physically fit, besides achieving an academic excellence. The Wellingtonian principle focuses on the complete growth of its pupils and this is the reason why the Wellington College China maintains all types of sporting facilities at their premises. The spokesperson of the College reveals that students happily participate in these sporting activities. Sports like swimming and skateboarding are very popular among young children. The seats of the swimming academy are filling fast, and parents need to support their child’s sporting spirit, which will enable them to grow as a complete human being.

Wellington College China Launched Managing Assessment For Teacher Training For Early Years Or Nursery Education In A Bilingual Context19/11/2019

Body: The process of making judgments on what pupils know and can do is fundamental in education. The good teachers should be good at gathering evidence to inform judgments on pupil progress and development, which then shapes the learning opportunities subsequently provided for pupils. Wellington College China pointed out that frequent and formative assessment best informs teacher practice and creates the best conditions for learning, in both monolingual and bilingual contexts.
Making effective and accurate judgments on what pupils know and can do is challenging and often comprises a balance between achieving validity and reliability in the evidence gathered versus the “do-ability” of the assessment. Moreover, standardized assessments can inform the summative judgments of what pupils know and can do. These are standard practices about teacher training for early years or nursery education in established education systems.

Collecting evidence of learning and development in a bilingual context is fundamentally more complex than monolingual systems. Validity, reliability and accuracy are hampered through the process of externalizing mental operations in a second language. Moreover, relevant standardised assessments for Chinese and English bilingual education are few and far between. This renders the act of judging what pupils know and can do difficult, impairing the capacity of a teacher to precisely define next steps in learning for pupils.
How to support teacher training for early years or nursery education in bilingual schools?
Firstly, there must be absolute clarity on assessment and its use. This is supported by utilising the following four principles of assessments:
1. Purpose
It is essential that there is clarity in the purpose of assessment; what is being assessed, why is it important and how will it advance learning for the pupils?
2. Validity
In its simplest form, validity in terms of assessment can be defined as: does the assessment measure what the teacher intends for its measure?
3. Reliability
For an assessment to be reliable, it must be reproducible. That is, if what one child knows and can do with fractions is judged to meet age related expectations, the judgment made on other children in the class or across the year group must be consistently similar.
4. Value
Valid and reliable assessment only becomes effective when it is used to advance learning. How the outcome of the assessment is communicated and used by the learner determines the value of assessment.

Wellington College China employs the following three actions to make assessment effective for teacher training for early years or nursery:

It is essential that the teacher is clear on what learning and development entails so that assessment practices can be purposefully designed.
2. Triangulation
It is essential to ensure validity to triangulate assessment approaches. For instance, drawing evidence from a range of assessment approaches; e.g. tests, observations, open-ended projects and conferencing with pupils. Each approach can be undertaken in both Chinese and English.
3. Moderation
The act of defining what evidence best represents differing levels of performance in what pupils know and can do is essential to ensure reliability. Moderation by comparing judgments between teachers in or between schools to ensure consistency and accuracy in assessment judgment is essential.
Effective approaches to developing effective assessment practices is one of four themes that feature in the Inspiring Learning Conference led by the Institute of Learning in Shanghai on the 19th and 20th October 2019 and will be led by Professor Rob Coe, a world leader in assessment.
