Does school have to be always so serious? Does sending your children to school puts an end to their childhood?
Definitely not. Radom Bilingual Primary School have created a unique educational program, which will enable each child the opportunity to have fun, play and at the same time to follow their passions. „Transition” time is an essential period in a child’s life. This is a transition from kindergarten and typical kindergarten behavior to first grade, where challenges and responsibilities await.
What is the purpose of transition?
For sure, it is gentle support of a child’s skills, interests and talents, need in further education and everyday life. Therefore transition class students work on projects, as a method of stimulating their activity and abilities involving work-group, creative thinking, experimenting and experiencing.Such methods of working evoke children’s questions. Students ask questions, they analyze and come up with their very own conclusions.
Each day in our school brings new challenges. Students start their adventure at the very moment of stepping in the school building. We greet ourselves by saying „Hello” „Good morning” and „How are you today?”. We always have time for a chitchat about what have happened-anything sad or happy,our feelings, current mood. This is how we educate our students, how we indicate a role-model, how we show them to be empathetic. We help them see what’s good and what’s bad. Students are shown how to work on shaping emotional resilience, deal with stressful situations, failures and difficulties.
