about the school activities

MUSIC
Margarita Malkina is our music teacher. Both classes receive weekly music and movement lessons that last 30 minutes.

The development of co-ordination, first of gross motor skills and then fine motor skills, is an important aspect of being able to perform music. The whole body is used to interpret musical rhythms. The child is encouraged to identify freely with the music he hears, and as a result, listening skills are developed.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Our gym teacher Alizee Gosslin, creates a safe, playful environment where the children develop their gross and fine motor skills. She trains them to use the whole body while running, hopping, jumping, climbing, catching, rolling etc., to increase the co-ordination skills. Children participate in Physical Education exercises every week for 30 minutes.

Children will be asked to take off their slippers and socks to have a good grip while performing their exercises. Weather permitting, sessions also take place in the garden, where they wear their outdoor shoes and coats.

 

SWIMMING
Swimming lessons take place at ‘Sports Club de Wezembeek-Oppem, and are for those children who are 4 years and older. The children are taken to the pool in a private bus (wearing two-points seat belts is obligatory). We encourage the children to dress and undress independently. The pool requires a swimming cap and tight fitting swim wear. Children who require wings or other flotation devices are asked to bring those in and leave them at the school.

Our swimming teachers will show the children how to move freely in the water, and encourage them to go underwater. When this has been achieved they will receive more specific instructions and learn how to swim.

 

EXCURSIONS
Each term both classes focus on a particular topic of study. These topics may vary from the study of a continent, a specific country, Ancient Rome, Egyptians, the Solar System, dinosaurs, the colour spectrum, life cycle of  an animal etc. These topics guide us in the venue we choose for our excursions - a theatre performance, a museum or other local events.

Twice a year the children venture out on autumn and spring walks to the Woluwe Park nearby.

The teachers are usually accompanied by parents as the children explore the forest and enjoy a picnic in the sun.

SUMMER SCHOOL

When the summer holidays begin, the school offers a Summer School programme (see School Calendar). This is a voluntary, non-academic programme for those who wish to send their children and is subject to an additional payment. From 8.45 to 12.15 the children participate in arts and craft, cooking, gym and music. A visit to a local event might be part of this special programme.

Spaces are limited (maximum of 16 children) and the fees are calculated per day.

During this Summer programme the school closes at 12.15 pm, and there is no ‘Garderie’ service.
