School information:

The British School in the Netherlands (Junior School, Leidschenveen Campus) is an international primary school located in the Netherlands. We follow the English curriculum adapting it to match the needs of our international community. The student body is aged between 4 and 11 who are from 43 different nationalities around the world. Many of the children are multilingual using English as their communicating language in school.

Our adventure has already begun, we are currently building up to our whole school STEM event ‘JSL in SPACE’ and our opportunity to ask the astronauts living in the International Space Station questions. We are encouraging the children to use SPACE as the learning vehicle for the whole curriculum during this time. As part of this we are designing t-shirts, creating rockets as part of a whole school competition, working together across year groups on space related projects, along with learning about how radio communications work. We have guest speakers from our parent body, who have links with ESA, Delft University and from other organisations, coming into talk to the children on topics about space rubbish to a topic on Jules Verne a science fiction writer.
