What is going on in class?

Structure of educational process. Class activities. Schedule and evaluation system
First half of each day (academic block) is devoted to mastering basic school disciplines and skills. Part of every lesson tasks students with solving discipline-specific problems and exercises individually, behind their desks, as they would in a traditional school. The rest of it, however, is organized in a more flexible, versatile, cooperation-oriented way suggested by the Singapore method.

Throughout the day children find themselves in the presence of two adults: an English-speaking teacher and their assistant. Together the two provide individual approach to pupils; they also combine efforts in mixing and matching different forms of class activity to suit current study subject and group dynamic.

Second half of day is reserved for the project activity block. Each project takes about 1-2 study weeks to complete. Project topics are formed together with children to incorporate their proposals, interests and preferences - with teacher and assistant functioning as moderators. By the end of the year each pupil comprises a portfolio of their own. Not only do children get a say in what topic they will be working on, but they also take turns evaluating and commenting on the work done by their classmates.
By the beginning of 3rd grade, children take over the task of picking out the team scrum master. From there on, «labour division» is done with only the minimal necessary input from adult moderators.
Evaluation

There is no grading system in primary school. But to keep the motivation going, we use kanban-boards. At first the board is overseen and updated by the adults, later pupils overtake that responsibility. Kanban system helps children keep track of their individual achievements - and along the way develop basic time-management skills, ability to set goals and reflect on their completion.
