Hans tells us he has been 12 years as a principal. The students start at 8 in the morning and finish at 15 in the afternoon. The classes last 45 minutes and then they have a 10 minutes break. They devote 20 minutes to have lunch. He tells us that there are 600 students, 100 students of them do not have Estonian as its first language, so they have 2 hours per day of Estonian language. There are between 22 and 25 students per class and 65 teachers, including pedagogical and logopedian teachers. In 5th grade, students can choose to study a 2nd language such as Russian or German. Education is free and although there are 3 classes with special need, the 15 specialists are integrated in the school. Ukrainian students get 2 extra hours learning Estonian. The principal can choose all the teachers and all the staff that works in the school. The school get the money from the government and the community, so during a week, parents can enter the classes to see how the teachers work. For 20 years, the families know everything about their children, recently, they do it through an app. From 1st until 9th grade, education is compulsory. After that, students have state examinations on Maths and Estonian.
Annika nos ha introducido las apps más utilizadas en la escuela de Kostivere, por ejemplo NEARPOD y CLASSROOMSCREEN. Nearpod nos ha gustado especialmente porque puedes hacer presentaciones con todo tipo de imágenes, cuestionarios, diagramas, dibujos.
Hi ha unes 15 classes amb màxim 24 alumnes. De 7 a 8 del matí, les famílies poden deixar els seus fills. a les 8.30 l’alumnat esmorza i a les 13 s’acaben les classes. A partir de les 13 hores, l’alumnat pot participar en diferents activitats extres i l’escola es tanca a les 19 de la tarda. Ens encanta com des de petit, l’alumnat treballa autònomament.
