Congratulations to all students in Kindergarten and Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 who sat their LAMDA examinations last term.
All students worked incredibly hard and the results have been outstanding.
All students who sat this examination gained merits or distinctions and all achieved full marks in their discussions with the examiner- a real- life skill to be able to engage confidently in a conversation with a stranger for a period of time. Well done Rosie, Lea, Elisabeth, Eleanor, Thomas C, Jacob, Jack, Oliver, Joseph and Thomas B.
The examiner commented on how delightful, enthusiastic and polite all the students were and what a lovely afternoon she had had examining all the candidates. You were a credit to Oakhyrst Grange School and I am very proud of you all. The next session will commence in September and lessons are available for students in Kindergarten to 6.
LAMDA examinations are designed to equip learners, whatever their age, ability or aspirations, with a range of skills which will serve them throughout life.
They are an excellent way of developing a child’s vocal and communication skills as well as their understanding of the written word. They combine an opportunity to unlock imagination and creative thinking and to build confidence in a non- threatening and enjoyable environment.
The examinations include a discussion with the examiner which is excellent practice for Entrance Examination interviews. LAMDA examinations are also viewed very favorably when they appear on a student’s application form and the latter Grades now count as UCAS points towards University entrance.
