Discovery of the World

The "Discovery of the World" curriculum aims to actively involve pupils in their learning process and their personal development. The themes are central to all language sections and age groups. Specific year-group classes coordinate with each other in order to implement joint projects. The aim is to educate pupils to become responsible individuals, future European citizens and informed consumers. They should become aware of human rights, social equality, cultural heritage, and they should develop openness towards others and to the wider world.

The topics are dealt with in an interdisciplinary manner to explore key interrelations and structures. "Discovery of the World" comprises the following subjects: biology, technology, geography, history and social studies.

The content is covered according to the following principles: observing, drawing conclusions, gathering information and implementing it. A subject is taught in one didactical unit, covering the following aspects: questions, procedures, hypothesis, answers, and conclusions.

The teachers of all year groups and language sections are informed annually about the availability of local services related to the "Discovery of the World" topics, (i.e. museums, tours, etc.) the material available in school, (experimental kits, etc.) and relevant training sessions.

Besides the normal class lessons, special activities are held each year:

  • Years 1 and 2: a visit of the dentist
  • Years 1 to 4: the Youth Traffic Theatre
  • Years 5: Youth Traffic School, the traffic safety training "Hallo Auto!" ("Hello Car!"), run by the ADAC
