Centenary Competition for Schools 2013 – Classroom project guide for teachers
2013 marks 100 years of Cambridge English exams – the first candidates took Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) in 1913. We would like to invite you and your students to be part of our centenary celebrations and participate in the currently running Centenary Competition for Schools, which finishes on 31 October 2013. We have selected 10 themes for Penfriends schools to choose from. Each of these themes has a range of activities for different ages and stages of learners. Choose an activity and share the results with your partner school. Then enter the competition as well for a chance to win some great prizes!
Classroom project guide for teachers
To assist you in preparing and entering the Competition we have devised a relevant project guide with all the details you may need. This Classroom project guide includes 10 projects you can work on with your students, each with 10 supporting activities – 100 activities to celebrate our centenary. The projects are suitable for learners from 5 to 19 years old, with a suggested age range indicated at the beginning of each project.
You can adapt the projects to suit your classes. Use a few of the activities, all the activities or make up your own. You don’t have to stop at one project; you can do as many as you like. There will be prizes for the schools that produce the most impressive project work.
The school that submits the best entry will win £3,000 of educational equipment for their school. There are two runner-up prizes of £1,000 of educational equipment. We will also publish the best entries on our website.
Starting today, we will also be publishing each Project in our blog along with the corresponding activities in separate entries. For those of you interested in downloading all the projects and activities at once, please click the link below:
We hope that, by entering our competition, you will enjoy working with your students on a class project that motivates them in their English language learning and extends the range of materials available to you.
Good luck in the competition!
