THE ROBIGS CONCEPT
The ROBIGS concept is the foundation of our bilingual grade school and comprises all elements of an eﬀective school period. The successful transition from nursery to grade school is the prerequisite for the construction of the individual modules of our ROBIGS concept.
The courses in German, English and mathematics are processed individually and structured with partial working and weekly schedules. The learning of linguistic and mathematic competencies is respectively structured into six topical books. Furthermore, we decide individually for each pupil with respect to the correct moment for the written-language acquisition of the second language. All competencies are acquired at their own learning speed at the respective level of requirements. In addition, subject-transcending tasks link the teaching content.
At ROBIGS, the entire program is imparted in the mixedage class families by at least two teachers in „team teaching“ according to the „one person - one language“ principle. The subjects of music, art, D.T, textiles, P.E, science and religion is organised as a subject-transcending workshop or project lesson in so-called epochs. The subjects holistically observe a common topic from various aspects.The close link with the self-discovery lessons thus allows the lasting consolidation of content.
Self-discovery learning awakens the „great researchers“ in our pupils. Our discovery program builds on natural curiosity and provides experiences in close, practical association with the reality of the children‘s lives. The ROBIGS learn to establish and present projects as a team. In the process, own, creative and subjecttranscending access routes are found to the topics.
We care about sciences and technology. The children recognize the correlations of the world with scientifc concepts and methods though exploration, discovery and explanations. We value early technical education by observing, explaining and fnding new, innovative solutions with experiments.
The ROBIGS learn responsible interaction with media and information technology. Each pupil has access to a tablet computer for active, individual learning. Our classrooms are equipped with interactive boards to view and discuss the common results.
