Everyone can, no one has to

Afternoon classes can be stressful. Homework too. That’s why we prefer to do neither. We build tree houses during playtime. Study short but concentrated during learning time. And perform circus tricks in an elective course. All in the company of classmates, under the guidance of the auxiliary teacher.

Afternoon sessions are offered from Monday to Thursday. Two are part of the core program and are therefore mandatory. Any additional afternoon sessions are optional and can be booked for half a year at a time. The choice of afternoons for both the mandatory and optional afternoon sessions is up to students and parents. All afternoon sessions consist of playtime, learning time and a range of fun elective activities. The sessions end at 4:05 pm. On Fridays and days when no afternoon session is booked, the school day ends at 1:25 pm.

80 minutes of outdoor games, or indoors in the gym if it rains. We play games such as cops and robbers, build huts, tree houses or igloos. The auxiliary teacher leads the playtime which concludes with an afternoon snack.

20 minutes of math, 20 minutes of German. During this time the students do a variety of practice exercises and drills, supported by the auxiliary teacher. This is enough – because it is quiet and is easy to concentrate. No further homework is required to be done at home after this learning time.

Musical or athletic, artistic or technical: in our elective courses students can try things out, enjoy new experiences, discover talents and find their own individual way… all in the company of their peers. Elective activities usually last 40 minutes. Options include:

  • Kapla, magical building blocks
  • Adventure gymnastics
  • Handicrafts
  • Science experiments
  • Games, indoor and outdoor fun
  • Circus skills
  • An introduction to art and drawing like an artist
