Lessons

Curiosity is natural. Learning is a matter of practice. Our lessons aim to make learning a joyful and pleasurable experience. Lessons start at 8:15 am and end at 1:25 pm. A delicious class lunch, in the company of the teacher and the auxiliary teacher, is included every day.

We teach in two inter-grade classes: Years 1 and 2 form one class, and Years 3 and 4 another class. There are 12 students per grade, 24 students per class. Each class is led by the permanent team of class teacher and auxiliary teacher. Two rooms are available for each class so that the class can be divided if necessary. In subjects such as art or music, the class is usually taught together.

Learning according to the cybernetic method is based on the connection that exists between the mind and the senses: eyes, mouth, hand and more. Arithmetic, reading and writing can be learned much more effectively this way. We teach German and mathematics according to this method from the 1st grade onwards.

We know from experience that the most effective way of teaching young children English is not through vocabulary lists and grammar books. Language must be experienced – through touching, listening, moving, singing, retelling, and playing. Starting in the 1st grade, our students pick up English as they would a native language, and in a fun and natural way. Soon they start speaking in complete sentences; by the third grade, they learn to write as well. The Helen Doron method of English teaching supports us in this process.

There is a lot of activity during lessons – and not only mental activity. Coordination games, gymnastics, reaction and posture training are all part of the daily routine. And during the long class break of 40 minutes, there is time for skipping games, hockey and other ball games, with the auxiliary teacher. An hour of sports on school grounds or in the large gym is also part of every day.

What’s for lunch today? Lunch together is a highlight of the day – for students and teachers alike. Meals are freshly prepared every day. Once they are seated and settled, the younger children are read a short story while they eat.
