School on Tuesday
15. June 2020
Every Tuesday, we have a full day of school with our teacher Ms Huser. Schools begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. In the morning, we start with the German lesson. Those who have grown up in Switzerland practise spelling and grammar, while those who are still learning German practise vocabulary and grammar. I find the German lesson interesting and it’s fun because I learn new words and can formulate better sentences. After the break, we have time to concentrate on mathematics in two lessons. We have two different levels. The first group is currently still practising fractions and the second group is looking at equations.
At 1 p.m., after a one-hour lunch break, we start writing applications or improve our general knowledge with topics relating to Swiss geography or history. This also makes the lesson very varied. In the last lesson, we have PE with Nox until 5 p.m.
We all enjoy coming to school every Tuesday to learn many new things and catch up on what we have forgotten.
A variety of sports
Every Tuesday afternoon, we have a PE lesson from 4.15 p.m. to 5.15 p.m. For this, we always need a towel, water bottle and sportswear. We start with a warm-up, then we stretch. After stretching, we do strength and endurance training. At the start, it was very hard and we always had muscle pain during the first sessions. Now it’s not very strenuous and we no longer have any pain. However, there are also interns who don’t like the exercise.
At the start of the internship, we had KELLER volleyball from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on a Thursday. We were only supposed to take sportsgear, a bottle of water and shower things with us. After we had got changed and gone to the hall, we had to set up the net. Before we started playing, we made two teams. During the game, our PE teacher Mr Dillier always changed the game rules so that he won. He wanted to get to know another side of us and he did so to help us learn to organise ourselves and think autonomously.
