喬治小王子新學期課表曝光,網友:小王子竟要學這門課!

暑假即將進入尾聲,新學期在招手,此刻心情如下圖……

Like children everywhere, Prince George will soon be heading back to school for the start of the new term.

和世界各地的孩子們一樣,喬治小王子很快就要回到學校開始新學期。

我準備好去上學了喲

去年9月7日,喬治正式開始就讀於倫敦著名的私立學校托馬斯巴特西學校(Thomas’s Battersea)這所學校位於倫敦西南部,距離威廉王子夫婦的住宅肯辛頓宮(Kensington Palace)僅有20分鐘車程。

托馬斯巴特西學校是一所男女同校的私立學校,招收年齡4歲到13歲的學生,現有560名學生,每班約有20人。同時,學費價格也不菲,每年的學費高達2萬英鎊(約合人民幣17.7萬元)。

雖然喬治小王子還沒開始新學期,媒體們卻通過學校的官網了解到了他的課業內容。雙語君(微信ID:Chinadaily_Mobile)這就帶大家一睹為快。

據《每日郵報》報導,新學期裡,小王子會換個教室,迎接一位新老師,還有不少課程要學:

Not only will George be settling into a new classroom and meeting a new teacher, he will also be taking on new subjects such as Science, History and Geography, as the curriculum becomes more challenging.

喬治不僅會換一個新教室、見到一位新老師,還會學習包括科學、歷史、地理等在內的諸多科目,同時課程也更具挑戰性。

According to the school’s website, Year One pupils will build on what they learned in reception and develop key skills including joined-up handwriting, fluent speech and a greater understanding of Maths.

根據學校網站的介紹,一年級的學生將在學前班的基礎上,培養更重要的能力,包括連筆書寫、流利地演講,對數學也要有更好的理解

joined-up 成熟老練的、(書寫)連筆的

除了剛剛說的科學、歷史、地理等常規課程,小王子還有這些課程要學習:

法語課

George and his classmates already know some basics in French and will expand on this through learning fairy tales and songs in a weekly 35-minute class taught by a specialist teacher.

喬治和他的同學們已經掌握了一些法語基礎知識,他們每周將上35分鐘的課程,通過專業老師講授的童話故事和歌曲來進一步學習。

They will also expand their vocabulary with winter clothes, days of the week and classroom objects.

他們還會拓展詞匯量,比如冬天的衣服、一周中的天數和教室裡的物品。

宗教學習

In Religious Studies, taught by George’s Form Teacher, children will ‘develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity’ and be taught to ‘appreciate the cultural differences in Britain today’.

在喬治的班主任所教的宗教課中,孩子們將「拓展對基督教的知識和理解」,並學習「欣賞當今英國的文化差異」。

Bible study will introduce the children to key stories including Noah, Joseph and David and Goliath.

聖經學習將向孩子們介紹包括諾亞、約瑟、大衛和歌利亞等主要的故事。

計算機課

George and his classmates will be given weekly Computing lessons in a dedicated suite equipped with 22 computers.

喬治和他的同學們每周在一套配備了22台電腦的專用教室中學習計算機課程。

There they will improve their mouse usage, be introduced to Microsoft Word and ‘develop a greater understanding of algorithms’.

同時他們將熟練對滑鼠的使用,使用微軟的文檔編輯,並且「培養對算法更好的理解」。

課外活動更是豐富多彩,涵蓋戲劇、藝術和芭蕾。

其中最值得一提的是芭蕾課。

Ballet is taught to all pupils in Year One by a specialist teacher in one 35-minute lesson per week and each class is accompanied by a live pianist.The curriculum follows the Royal Academy of Dance Pre-Primary in Dance syllabus.

所有一年級的學生由一名專業教師帶領,每周上一節35分鐘的芭蕾課。每節課都有一名鋼琴師現場伴奏。課程是按照英國皇家舞蹈學院的學前舞蹈教學大綱制定的。

許多網友表示,沒想到喬治小王子也要學習芭蕾啊!

腦補一下萌萌的小王子跳芭蕾的樣子,雙語君(微信ID:Chinadaily_Mobile)露出了「嘻嘻嘻」的姨母笑……

踮起腳尖,我就是可愛本人

Meanwhile PE lessons cover topics including Games, Gymnastics and Swimming.

與此同時,體育課程涵蓋了遊戲、體操和遊泳等項目。

此外,托馬斯巴特西學校有超過24個課外俱樂部。

喬治小王子,社團活動了解一下?

Don’t assume George will be merely moulding Plasticine or painting papier-mache models.George has the chance to join a debating club — it’s never too early to train for the Oxbridge societies — study philosophy, learn Italian or try his hand at songwriting, fencing, golf or pottery.

不要以為喬治只會捏橡皮泥或畫紙模型。喬治還有機會加入辯論俱樂部,以便早日加入牛津劍橋的社團,為此他們將進行哲學、義大利語的學習,嘗試作曲、擊劍、高爾夫或陶藝

看了喬治小王子要學的課程,不得不感嘆英國王室的精英教育真是從娃娃抓起呀。

下面,來跟雙語君(微信ID:Chinadaily_Mobile)一起圍觀英國王室成員就讀過的學校,看看他們成績如何吧!

喬治小王子

2016年1月,兩歲半的喬治小王子開始就讀於位於英格蘭東部諾福克郡的韋斯泰克·蒙泰索裡學校幼兒園(Westacre Montessori School)。這家幼兒園平均每天收費33英鎊。

按照英國王室先前的傳統,王室成員小時候一般不上幼兒園,而是接受私人教育和輔導。據英媒評論,威廉夫婦安排喬治小王子上平價幼兒園,似乎是在踐行他們自己的理念,即應該讓小王子盡可能像普通孩子一樣成長。

夏洛特小公主

英國王室為夏洛特小公主選擇的則是威爾科克斯幼兒園(Willcocks Nursery)

At her nursery school, the little Princess will enjoy pottery and poetry classes at the sought-after nursery, which is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and located next to the Royal Albert Hall.

小公主將會在這所熱門幼兒園裡學習陶藝和詩歌,這所幼兒園被英國教育標準局評為最高等級,位於皇家阿爾伯特音樂廳旁邊。

威廉王子&哈裡王子

William was thefirst future monarch to attend nursery beyond palace wallsand was a pupil at Mrs. Mynor’s near his home of Kensington Palace from the age of 3.He then attended nearby Wetherby School from the ages of 4-8.

威廉王子是第一位在宮牆之外上幼兒園的未來君主,從3歲開始在他家肯辛頓宮附近的Mrs. Mynor’s上幼兒園,4到8歲時就讀於附近的韋瑟比預備小學。

From the age of 8, William was a boarder at Ludgrove School in the middle of the Berkshire countryside. There, boys were encouraged to build dens and camps in the woodland and grow their own flowers and vegetables in the shared gardens.

從8歲開始,威廉王子在伯克郡郊外的拉德格羅夫小學當寄宿生。在那裡,學校鼓勵男孩們在林地搭建營地,在公共花園種植自己的花草和蔬菜。

13歲起,威廉王子開始就讀於著名的伊頓公學。

伊頓公學

William was in a prestigious prefect society called Pop and left with three A levels: an A in geography, B in history of art, and C in biology.

威廉王子那時在一個有聲望的名為「Pop」的高年級學生社團中,並參加了3門A-level考試:在地理學考試中取得了A,藝術史取得了B,生物學取得了C。

William started out at St. Andrew’s University studying history of art (likehis future wife, Kate Middleton), but at the end of his first term, he switched to geography and left with a 2:2 degree (Kate did better with a 2:1).

威廉王子在聖安德魯大學學習藝術史,與他的妻子凱特王妃一樣,但在第一學期結束時,他轉修了地理學,以2:2(二等二級)的成績畢業(凱特的成績更好,是2:1,即二等一級)。

2005年6月23日,威廉和凱特在聖安德魯斯大學參加他們的畢業典禮

與哥哥一樣,哈裡王子同樣就讀於Mrs. Mynor’s幼兒園、韋瑟比預備小學、拉德格羅夫小學和伊頓公學。

哈裡王子在伊頓公學

Less academic than his big brother, Harry left school with two A levels — a B in art and D in geography — after dropping art history the previous year.

哈裡王子沒有哥哥學習好,畢業時參加了兩門A-level考試:藝術取得了B,地理學取得了D,而且在前一年放棄了藝術史。

Harry is the only one among his cousins so far who hasn’t gone to university. He had never been academic and followed in the footsteps of his uncle and godfather Prince Andrew by going straight into the military.

哈裡王子是迄今為止他的表兄弟姐妹中唯一沒有上過大學的人。他從不擅長學術,跟隨叔叔和教父安德魯王子的步伐,直接進入了軍隊。

比阿特麗斯公主

比阿特麗斯公主是英國女王伊麗莎白二世的孫女、約克公爵安德魯王子和前妻莎拉·弗格森的長女,在英國王位繼承人順序中排名第7。

Princess Beatrice attended Upton House School nursery from the age of 3, followed by Coworth Park School in Berkshire and St. George’s School in Windsor. She was diagnosed with dyslexia as a teenager and delayed taking her GCSEs for a year but was later head girl in her final year.

比阿特麗斯公主從三歲開始進入Upton House預備學校,後來去了伯克郡的Coworth Park小學和溫莎的聖喬治中學。她在青少年時被診斷出閱讀困難症,將GCSE考試推遲了一年,但中學的最後一年裡當上了女生代表。

Beatrice studied history and the history of ideas at Goldsmiths University in London, graduating with a 2:1.

比阿特麗斯公主在倫敦大學金史密斯學院學習歷史及思想史,以2:1(二等一級)的成績畢業。

尤金妮公主

尤金妮公主是英國女王伊麗莎白二世的孫女、約克公爵安德魯王子和前妻莎拉·弗格森的次女,比阿特麗斯公主的妹妹

Eugeniefollowed her big sister to Upton House School, Coworth Park, and St. George’s, before moving on to Marlborough College, where Kate Middleton had been a pupil. It’s been said of Marlborough that it “Spits out girls who are Able All Areas: the City, music, business, fashion, politics. They’re bright, they do sport, drama, art. They’re also very glossy.”

尤金妮公主跟隨姐姐就讀於Upton House預備學校、Coworth Park小學和聖喬治中學,後來去了凱特王妃小學時就讀的馬爾堡學院。據說馬爾堡學院「培養出的女孩能夠駕馭所有領域:金融、音樂、商業、時尚、政治。她們聰明,擅長運動、戲劇、藝術,還長得很漂亮」。

Eugenie fit the bill and left with an A in art, an A in English literature, and a B in history of art.Eugenie then went on to study art history, politics, and English literature at Newcastle University, graduating with a 2:1.

尤金妮公主印證了這個說法,在英國文學和藝術考試中都取得了A等成績,在藝術史考試中取得了B等成績。後來尤金妮公主進入了英國紐卡斯爾大學學習藝術史、政治和英國文學,以2:1(二等一級)的成績畢業。

查爾斯王子

The prince received private tuition in the Buckingham Palace nursery before attending Hill House in West London — a mixed-gender school that specialises in educating children to be in a world community. At the age of 8, Charles took after his father, Prince Philip, by going to Cheam in Berkshire, a mixed school with a fishing lake, shooting range, and sensory garden.

查爾斯王子在白金漢宮接受私人教育,後來進入倫敦西部的希爾豪斯學校——一所男女同校、專門教育兒童適應國際社會的學校。8歲時,查爾斯王子像父親菲利普親王一樣去了伯克郡的契姆預備小學,一所有釣魚湖、射擊場和感官花園的男女混合學校。

At 13, the prince went to Gordounston in Scotland, as his father had, but hated the experience and has said he felt lonely and isolated. Charles then headed to Trinity College, Cambridge, studying archaeology and anthropology, but as his son was to do many years later, he changed his mind during his course and graduated with a 2:2 in history.

13歲時,查爾斯王子去了蘇格蘭的戈登斯敦學校,但是他討厭那段經歷,曾說自己感到寂寞和孤立。後來查爾斯王子前往劍橋大學三一學院學習考古學和人類學,但像他的兒子多年後所做的那樣,上學時他改變了主意去學歷史,以2:2的成績畢業。

伊麗莎白二世女王

The Queen was schooled at home in Buckingham Palace by tutors, alongside her sister, Margaret. Their governess was Marion Crawford, and private tutors included the provost (senior academic) of Eton, Henry Marten.

女王和妹妹瑪格麗特公主在白金漢宮接受家庭教師教育。她們的女家庭教師是Marion Crawford,她的私人家庭教師還包括伊頓公學的教務長Henry Marten。
