Happy Turkey! The Short Story of Thanksgiving Day for little ones!


Thanksgiving is an American festival. It’s on the fourth Thursday in November.

On this day, American families come together to have a big dinner. They eat turkey, pumpkin pie and ice cream.



The First Thanksgiving

It’s the year 1620. A group of people from England arrive in America.  Their ship is called MayflowerThe people want to find new homes in America. But it is winter. They are cold and hungry.

Native Americans help them. They give them food and warm clothes. In spring, the Native Americans help them to grow corn and pumpkins. They also give them some turkeys. In the autumn, the people from England have a big party. They want to thank the Native Americans for their help. They eat turkey and pumpkin. This is the story of the First Thanksgiving.happy-thanksgiving-greetings-22

Happy Birthday, Kids!

Dear Children,

Have a sweet day full of Joy, Happiness and lots of Smiles! We dedicate a special poem to you:

Come meet the child/Who loves to be free,
Warmed by the sun/And kissed by the sea.

Come meet the child/Who watches each sky,
Searching for rainbows/Or objects that fly.

Come meet the child/Who hides from the dark,
Bees that can sting/Or dogs that will bark.

Come meet the child/Who’s eager for praise,
Told she is special/And loved many ways.

Come meet the child/Who’s so hard to see.
Come meet the child/That lives within me!

Happy Birthday!

Easter Symbols!

Easter falls in the spring, the yearly time of renewal, when the earth renews itself after a long, cold winter. The word „Easter” is named after Eastre, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring. A festival was held in her honor every year at the vernal equinox. The meaning of the many different customs observed during Easter Sunday have been buried with time. Nowadays, people celebrate Easter according to their beliefs and their religious denominations.

Easter Symbols: One of the oldest spring symbols in the world is the Egg. The oval shape of the egg is the same shape for a raindrop and a seed, these two were important life-giving elements. The egg itself promises new life as in spring, birds and many other animals are hatched from eggs.  Originally Easter eggs were painted with bright colours representing the sunlight of spring. InEngland, members of the royal families gave each other gold-covered eggs as Easter gifts in the Middle Ages. Nowadays the eggs are given to children as Easter presents along with other gifts. They are usually eaten after an egg-tapping competition.

Easter Bunny. On Easter Sunday, many children wake up to find that the Easter Bunny has left them baskets of candy. He has also hidden the eggs that they decorated earlier that week. Children hunt for the eggs all around the house. Neighborhoods and organizations hold Easter egg hunts, and the child who finds the most eggs wins a prize. The Easter Bunny is a rabbit-spirit. Long ago, he was called the „Easter Hare„, hares and rabbits have frequent multiple births so they became a symbol of fertility. The custom of an Easter egg hunt began because children believed that hares laid eggs in the grass. The Romans believed that „All life comes from an egg” ,Christians consider eggs to be „the seed of life” etc. Other Easter symbols: (The Lamb, the lily, the cross, the candle)

Easter in Romania. In Romania, Easter is celebrated according to the rituals of the Orthodox Church. At the Easter Resurrection Mass, just before midnight, the priest comes out of the church to give blessings; he also gives people holy bread and provide the flame from which everyone will light their candles. Everyone tries to keep the flame alive until they arrive home. After the Lent, tables, are full with all sorts of good dishes and brightened up with beautiful coloured eggs, all these contribute to a festive atmosphere in Romanian homes. On Easter, Romanians eat roast lamb and broth, spiced minced lamb and fresh cottage cheese. Our wishes for you:

„May the gifts of Easter/Cause you much delight,

And the Sun of Easter/Make your pathway bright!”

Cambridge Club Tea Party!

You’re invited to our “Cambridge Club Tea Party” on 25th February, at 11:00 o’clock! Children aged (3 to 12 years) & parents too are invited to our party!

A child tea party is a truly magical experience that can create sparkling childhood memories. A tea party is an elegant way to spend an afternoon and learn a little about a different era in history. In Victorian England, “tea” was not only a drink – it was a whole meal! Invented as an afternoon snack between “dinner” (what we now call lunch) and “supper” (what we now call dinner), tea provided a break from work, a social event, and a chance to show off your elegant manners and superior hospitality. Back then, tea was imported from India and China in speedy sailing ships called “clippers.” Because of the high price, drinking tea was a sign of class, and the lady of the house was often the only one to hold the key to the “tea box” for fear that servants might steal some of the precious leaves.

Cambridge Club Tea Party includes:

  • * Tea & Treats
  • * Short and Easy “Etiquette Instructions”
  • * Cambridge Club Kids Show (Songs & a funny Play)
  •  * Funny Games
  •  * Music & Dance
  • * Tea Party “Thank-You notes”

Topics covered:

  • * Meeting & Greeting people
  • * Magic Words
  •  * Giving, Receiving & Sharing
  •  * The 3 C’s: customs, courtesy & common sense

N.B. This is Children’s Event! Parents will sit at separated tables, watching the party. Parents with small children can sit together in the Kids Corner (children’s tea table).

Dress Code: For girls: dress, hat, scarf, gloves etc

                       For boys: suit or just a shirt, bow tie, hat etc.

Rezervations: 0757 525 372  (Free entrance!)

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s day at the United Kingdom

Mother’s Day is more popularly known as Mothering Sunday, the origins of the holiday date back to centuries when it was considered important for churchgoers to visit their home or „mother” church once a year. During Lent, the practice became quiet popular, and in a society where children were often sent off to work in other villages at a very young age, it quickly became a time for family reunions and celebrations that were fondly cherished. A special cake, might also be brought along to provide a festive touch. Later, Mothering Sunday became a day when children and domestic servants were allowed a day off to see their families. Celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent, Mothering Sunday remains a time to pay mothers their due rewards for all their love and encouragement with flowers, candies, cards, and other tokens of appreciation.

Why is Education important?

Instruction ends in the school-room, but education ends only with life.

 Without focusing on education, you will find that your career choices are limited. The best way to reach career success is to map out a strategy and set goals. You should focus on things that you like, including hobbies, talents, and interests and determine a career goal. Once you have an idea of what you would like to do, you will need to create a plan or strategy to reach those goals. Without the proper education, our kids will never accomplish their career goals.

 The more you LEARN, the more you EARN:

 Have you ever noticed that the word LEARN contains the word EARN? Perhaps that is because the higher level of education you achieve, the higher level of income you are likely to command as well.

 Learn how to learn. School teaches you how to gather, learn, and apply knowledge. No matter what career you choose, you will need to learn procedures, information, and skills related to your job, and execute tasks based on that information and training.

Develop interpersonal skills. School allows you to interact with other people and refine your communication skills, including those of persuasion, conflict resolution, and teamwork.

Learn time and task management. Learn how to manage projects, deadlines, and complete assignments efficiently and effectively.

Learn from experience of others. By attending school, you are able to learn from the experience and intellect of thousands of people who have gone before you. In just a few years, through your textbooks, research, and class lessons, school gives you a consolidated overview of theories, formulas, ideologies, and experiments conducted by generations of scientists, philosophers, mathematicians, historians, and other experts. While gaining your own personal work experience is helpful too, a formal education is a way to learn from centuries of others’ life and work and academic experience before you.

 Why is education so important?

Education gives us the knowledge of the world around us. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on everything in life. People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say, education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. They are partly right. But the conversion of information to knowledge is possible because of education. Education makes us capable of interpreting rightly the things perceived. Education is not about lessons and poems in textbooks. It is about the lessons of life.

Education is important as it teaches us the right behavior, the good manners thus making us civilized. It teaches us how to lead our lives. Education is the basis of culture and civilization. Education cultivates us into mature individuals, individuals capable of planning for our futures and taking the right decisions. Education arms us with an insight to look at our lives and learn from every experience. The future of a nation is safe in the hands of educated individuals.

Education is important because it equips us with all that is needed to make our dreams come true. Education opens doors of brilliant career opportunities. Schools and colleges define the basic framework of education. Schooling gives us the fundamentals whereas we specialize in fields of our interest, during the degree courses. But education does not end here. It is a lifelong process. Self-learning begins at the point that marks the end of institutional education. The process of self-learning continues…


English Values

From the early English times we can find a value system and culture based on the 9 English values.  English ancestors were a people we can learn much from.

1. Courage and selflessness
2. Truth
3. Honour
4. Fidelity
5. Discipline and duty
6. Hospitality
7. Industriousness
8. Self-reliance
9. Perseverance

These 9 Values can mean a variety of things to a variety of people. Here is one set of interpretations:

1. Be Brave, stand up for yourself and what you believe. Do not turn the other cheek.
2. Be honest with yourself. You only kid yourself if you lie be truthful to others.
3. Believe in your self. Stand by what you believe.
4. Stay true to yourself, your family, faith (in England,) and folk.
5. Develop self discipline and inner strength rather than relying on other stimulus. Follow these values. Teach others.
6. Your hearth should be welcoming to family and folk and help those in need.
7. Work hard to achieve your goals and make strong your inner Self.
8. Try not to rely on others, do what you can yourself.
9. Life is a hard path at times, but push yourself on till you reach your goal.

Learn these values yourselves and teach others to do the same!

Invatarea limbilor straine de la o varsta frageda

Ce spun Specialistii?

Un copil poate şi este indicat să înveţe o limbă străină de la o vârstă cât mai fragedă.

Un copil poate să înceapă să vorbească o limbă străină de când începe să articuleze cuvinte în limba maternă. Capacitatea creierului de a recepta şi de a învăţa limbi străine este foarte mare la vârste mici. Aşadar, la vârsta de 2-3 ani, când achiziţionează limbajul matern, copilul poate învăţa, în paralel, şi o altă limbă. În plus, copiii au o capacitate surprinzătoare de a face distincţia între cele două limbi pe care le învaţă, deci 2-3 ani nu este o vârstă prea mică”-psihopedagog A. Stănculescu.

La 3 ani, copilul devine mai curios şi adulţii pot colabora cu el, pentru că vorbeşte şi începe să înţeleagă sensul cuvintelor. Este recomandat totusi să se aştepte întâi învăţarea limbii materne foarte bine, înainte de a învăţa să citească într-o altă limbă.  Dacă se vorbeşte şi în casă acea limbă, este cu atât mai bine pentru copil, pentru că la 6 ani va ajunge să vorbească în două limbi”- psiholog A. Ivan.

 Pe la vârsta de 4 ani, devine activă şi se manifestă capacitatea de memorare. „Vârsta aproximativă de 4 ani, în funcţie de dezvoltarea psiho-neuro-somatică a copilului, este prielnică în a asimila o limbă străină. Dar trebuie să se insiste şi să se menţină un program permanent de învăţare a limbii alese, deoarece copilul uită repede, pentru că fixarea este fluctuantă şi adeseori superficială”

 În concluzie, puneţi-l pe copil să înveţe o limbă străină încă de mic, şi nu la şapte ani, concluzionează specialiştii. „E bine să înveţe o altă limbă cât mai de mici şi până învaţă scrisul şi cititul la şcoală”.Copiii nu fac confuzii între cuvinte, dacă învaţă mai multe limbi

 Specialiştii demontează de asemenea şi mitul potrivit căruia copiii pot face confuzii între cuvinte atunci când învaţă mai multe limbi.Pentru copil nu este mai dificil să înveţe două limbi în acelaşi timp decât una singură. Copilul este capabil să diferenţieze mai multe limbi încă înainte de a începe să vorbească. Creierul nefiind format, înmagazinarea mai multor limbi în paralel se face natural”, psiholog. Izsak.

În situaţia în care părinţii au divergenţe asupra limbii pe care copilul să o înveţe, atunci fiecare părinte îl va învăţa limba preferată, deoarece copilul va şti cum să vorbească cu fiecare dintre ei, spun psihologii.

 Metode de Invatare!

Pedagogii şi psihologii au căzut de acord că, modul cel mai eficient ca un copil să înveţe o limbă străină este conversaţia.“O limbă străină se învaţă cel mai bine prin conversaţie permanentă.  Copilul învaţă permanent, făcând orice activitate – merge, se uită la ceva, se joacă. Toate aceste activităţi verbalizate în limba în care vrem să înveţe îl ajută să achiziţioneze acel limbaj”, pedagog A. Stănculescu.

Totuşi, metodele de învăţare diferă de la copil la copil, în funcţie de particularităţile de dezvoltarea ale fiecăruia şi de ritmul propriu de învăţare.

Metodele trebuie să fie personalizate, pentru ca cel mic să atingă nivelul de cunoştinţe necesar fără ca acest lucru să însemne o oboseală prea mare din partea sa. Unii copii sunt mai avantajaţi în învăţare prin susţinerea conversaţiilor, alţii prin repetarea expunerii unor imagini concomitent cu verbalizarea”

„De aceea, la această vârstă, la 3-4 ani, învăţarea este cea mai indicată prin joc ca metodă de predare-învăţare. Jocurile didactice sunt jocuri cu reguli în care domină strategii intelectuale”

„Jocurile, cântecele reprezintă o metodă bună de învăţare, pentru că cei mici nu au răbdare să stea pe scaun şi să li se predea o lecţie”

Atenţia voluntară creşte de la 12-14 minute până la 45-50 minute în joc, audiţii, vizionare de diafilme, teatru de copii”, spune Izsak.La copilul şcolar mic se utilizează forme de învăţare simple bazate pe solicitările memoriei. Sunt mai active formulele legate de impresionabilitate şi atractivitate (culoare, imagine).

Specialiştii nu sunt însă de acord cu învăţarea de la televizor sau cu ajutorul CD-urilor, pe care le văd nişte metode statice.  TV -ul şi CD-urile „leneşesc” neuronii

“Televizorul şi CD-urile sunt o activitate statică, la fel ca şi calculatorul. Aceasta este o activitate pasivă de învăţare, dar copilul devine sedentar şi neuronii care ar trebui să lucreze activ pentru învăţare stau, pe când, în jocuri, copiii sunt activi, devin implicaţi”, psiholog A. Ivan.

Cu acest articol sper ca am reusit sa vin in intampinarea parintilor, dandu-le informatii precise si utile, de un real folos pentru buna dezvoltare si educatie a copiilor lor.
