Hello and Welcome to Primary School
We would like to tell you how we spend a day at school and the activities we do here.
|8:15– 8:45||Arrival||We arrive at school after 8:15 a.m. in the morning. Some of us come with parents, some with a teacher on the school bus. There is always a teacher that welcomes and supervises us at the floor’s door and reminds us to change into our indoor shoes.
We go to class, unpack our backpack and get ready for the day. We enjoy playing games with our friends until the character education time.
|09:00-09:40||Period 1||Regular classes start at 9 a.m. as two 40-minute-periods with a short break in between. We have a snack recess after the second period. After another two periods, and an hour break for lunch and recess follows at 11:50. Some of us enjoy eating school lunch and some others bring their own. We take the rest of our time to enjoy playing games with our friends. It is a good relaxing time for all of us.
Our homeroom teachers are responsible to help us develop “Units of Inquiry” where we explore a key concept from various disciplines such as mathematics, language arts, sciences, social studies, creative art etc. One luxury we have here at Abroad is access to a number of specialist teachers to teach the subjects of Japanese, Music, and ICT. This both gives our homeroom teachers a break for planning and us to enjoy learning from different teachers.
|14:50-15:15||Afternoon Meeting||Time passes quickly and we finish a regular day with a short afternoon meeting between 2:50 p.m. and 3:00. Then some of us are dismissed to return home and the others enjoy After School Programs.|
|15:15-15:30||Dismissal||It is a dismiss time for our friends who are not participating After School Clubs.|
