Primary 5 & 6
The Primary 5 and 6 sections are open to children who are ten or eleven years old before August 31st. Our language of instruction is German following the Curriculum of the Canton of Zug.
In P5 and P6 we prepare the students for our Secondary 1 Level at United World College of South East Asia. In order to ensure a smooth transition, the English program is continuously expanded. In P5 four English lessons and three science lessons are an integral part of our weekly timetable. In P6 not less than 10 lessons are taught in English: six English lessons, two Science lessons and two Project lessons.
In the subject of German, we use the teaching material Die Sprachstarken and in the mathematics we work with the teaching material Das Zahlenbuch.
In addition, in P5 and P6, 2 lessons of French form an integral part of our weekly timetable. For our lessons we use the teaching material Envole.
We offer a holistic educational programme. This includes music, arts and crafts, artistic design and sports.
In Primary 5 and 6, there is an annual class camp either in Indonesia or Malaysia. The adventure week combined with a Writer’s Camp, which we organise with the help of professional writers, is the highlight of the school year.
As in the previous school years, children receive an interim report after the first semester and a final school report with marks for all subjects at the end of the school year. There is one parents’ talk per school year.
