Budding Year 8 engineers win first round of Faraday Challenge!

Tags : 


Congratulations to our Year 8 pupils who came first of their pool at the Faraday Challenge. The judges were particularly impressed by their creativity, coding and presentation skills; we could not be any prouder!

The Faraday Challenge Days are organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) with the purpose of giving students the opportunity to research, design and make prototype solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems. This year, our pupils were asked to develop prototypes that would improve the performance of the Land Rover BAR sailing team for the America’s Cup.

The winning team engineered a device that could measure the straightness of the boat’s mast and suggest appropriate amendments for the sailors.

Congratulations to all twelve participants for this fantastic achievement!

WBD - Boule et Bill  WBD - filles  P1030900


École Jeannine Manuel celebrated World Book Day on 3rd March 2016.

From Paddington to Tintin and his dog Milou, from the Cat in the Hat to Fantomette, from Sherlock Holmes to Little Red Riding Hood together with the Playing cards from Alice in Wonderland and Bill from Boule et Bill… For World Book Day, pupils at École Jeannine Manuel impersonated characters from stories that are truly without borders.

Students and their teachers, who also came dressed as their favourite book characters, started this special day with a grand parade in the hall that demonstrated the extent of their creativity, their attention to detail and their passion for literature.

After sharing and exchanging about the favourite books and characters, pupils voted for the class’ most creative costume.

This special day was also the occasion for everyone to partake in a special silent reading session in the DEAR room. Usually reserved to Secondary students this room is dedicated to the Drop Everything And Read programme that consists of four supervised reading periods per week during which 6e and 5e pupils take a moment to read from a selection of books suggested by the school.

Finally, World Book Day was also the occasion to address, with some classes, the issue of illiteracy in the world as well as to consider the crucial importance of reading as the foundation for all future learning. This gave us the opportunity to launch the Readathon for CE2, CM1 and CM2 pupils. The 2016 Readathon is organised by Room to Read, a charity which works to develop literacy skills and the habit of reading among children in Asia and Africa.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the families, pupils and teachers who put so much energy and passion in making this day a success. Thank you all and keep reading!

IMG_0053For the very first time in London, Ecole Jeannine Manuel opened its doors on 3rd September 2015 and welcomed 189 students aged 4 to 12. In newly renovated buildings located at the heart of the city, teachers and students will embrace the vision of founder Jeannine Manuel to advance international understanding through a bilingual education.

It was with no small amount of emotion that headmistress Pauline Prévot and her staff, welcomed 189 students from 34 nationalities on 3rd September 2015 on what will be recalled as the very first day of Ecole Jeannine Manuel in London. “We are extremely proud to welcome you and confident that you will form a first generation of very successful students” told the headmistress in her opening speech.

Established in a row of three townhouses overlooking Bedford Square and newly transformed into a colourful and highly functional school, Ecole Jeannine Manuel brings a team of over 20 innovative and mission-driven educators that will provide a French bilingual education to students from Moyenne Section to 5e.

Like its sister school in France, founded by Jeannine Manuel in 1954, the school will embrace the vision of its founder expressed in its mission statement: our mission is to promote international understanding through the bilingual education of an international community of students and foster pedagogical innovation through the constant exploration of best practices in an ever-changing global environment.

Students at Ecole Jeannine Manuel will benefit from the very special programmes specifically designed over the years by the school’s talented pedagogues such as the Knock Knock method of English learning, the DEAR programme (Drop Everything And Read), daily Mandarin lessons starting in CE2, a science curriculum based on scientific inquiries excursions, and more.

Ecole Jeannine Manuel whose ambition is to expand and offer, in the years to come, a complete education from preschool to high-school hopes to soon become a strong, lively, and international school community in London.
