Placing historical events to the time line was experienced as difficult, especially when the different matters take place at the same time and in many separate places.

At the stage of construction of the context, some of the pupils supposed that out of this does not become anything and that everything is chaos. Pairs of pupils chose a interesting subject of the Ancient Greece to examine. Of this subject, the problems, in the teachers' control (a formulation of the problem), were set. These subjects were studied by becoming acquainted with different source of materials. The work started on the basis of an own working theory.

L’école primaire de Huhtinen

  • Enseignement de haut niveau dans un climat de sécurité
  • L’école primaire de Huhtinen a ouvert ses portes en 1995. Des travaux d’extension ont eu lieu en 2002 et 2003.
  • En 2007, l’école compte 25 enseignants et 7 assistants scolaires. Le nombre d’élèves avoisine les 290. Dans le même bâtiment, une crèche accueille les enfants en bas âge. Divers partenaires de notre école – tels que des clubs de musique et de sport – organisent des activités périscolaires dans nos locaux. Notre établissement se propose d’offrir un enseignement de haut niveau pendant les six premières années de la scolarité obligatoire dans un climat de sécurité.
  • Les locaux de l’école sont dotés d’équipements des plus modernes : une cour de récréation avec des jeux, un gymnase, une cantine ainsi que des classes pour des activités spécialisées, telles que l’informatique, la musique, les travaux manuels…
  • L’année scolaire est divisée en trois trimestres, chacun avec un thème différent. Ces thèmes varient d’année en année et s’intéressent à un large éventail : des questions environnementales aux traditions culturelles. L’école coopère également avec la crèche. De 2007 à 2009, l’école de Huhtinen participe au projet international Comenius avec d’autres écoles, britanniques, italiennes et hollandaises.

Högklassig grundundervisning i en trygg omgivningHuhtinen skola blev färdig år 1995 och utvidgningen togs i bruk i augusti 2003. Nu har vår skola fina och moderna utrymmen och en bra utrustning.

Skolan har nu fått bland annat den efterlängtande gymnastiksalen samt en textil- och slöjdklass, datakommunikationsklass och matsal. Skolgården är trivsam och lekställningar finns det också ett antal. Vid skolan finns det också ett näridrottsområde som är nästan färdigt. Under läsåret 2006-2007 finns det 290 elever och 25 lärare samt 7 skolgångsbiträden.

I nedre våningen finns det Kuutamopolun päiväkoti som har två förskolgrupper och en syskongrupp. Skolans samarbet-partner arrangerar i mån av möjlighet olika eftermiddagsaktiviteter i skolans utrymmen.

Skolåret är delat i tre perioder och varje period har sitt eget tema. Vi koncentrerar oss på högklassig grundundervisning i en trygg omgivning, internationell undervisning med Comenius-projekt, att slå vakt om traditionella festligheter och gott samarbete med dag-hemmet.
