The day begins at 9:00 with a morning circle, separated into each of the four learning groups. A singing bowl sounds and a candle is lit. Each group has their own rituals, such as singing together, narrating stories or experiences, reading books or stories out loud. The program or the “offers” of the day are presented and every child shares with the group in which of them he or she wishes to participate. The young children attend two learning periods during the day. In the first one (09:30- 10:30), “Free Work” takes place. During this time, the children decide on what they want to work on and with which materials, and do so alone or in small groups. The teachers move around and support the children individually; they also make sure that the children are frequently engaged in reading, writing and mathematics.
A half-hour break is followed by the second learning period (11:00-12:30), which is the period of the offers. One of the four teachers always offers a second session of “Free Work”. Offers that are currently taking place are chess, music, sewing, art, puppet theatre, creative writing, secret writing, geometry and natural sciences. The period is long but the children can decide for themselves when they need a break and how long it should be. The fourth to sixth years are more structured. The children have three learning periods (09:30-10:30, 11:00-11:55, 12:05-12:50) and attend English, German, Mathematics, Geography and Natural Sciences in fixed groups. Free work takes place daily; there is also time for attending offers, such as music. Children learn according to their needs with individualised weekly or monthly plans, or develop a new learning plan every day. After lunch and the subsequent break, a new round of offers begins. The offers are now open and common to all the children of the school. At present, the adult led offers consist of pottery, building marionettes, drumming, singing, woodwork, gardening, yoga, ballet, swimming and sports, while those offered by children are theatre and football. The participation is here completely voluntary; many children prefer to play freely or spend the time in a non-organised form. Outdoor Activities & Forest Day One of the school’s main focuses is learning in and from nature. The children have the opportunity to spend a lot of time outside every day: during offers, free work, individual or common breaks and in the afternoon zone. Wednesday is the school’s official “forest day”. The children can choose between four outdoor modules, which are open to children of all ages, and change every two to three months. The current groups are “Theatre in the Forest”, “Free Play”, “Herb-Detectives” and “Wild life: Tracing Traces”. Every group chooses the part(s) of the forest where they want to spend the day. Participation in a module leads to the enrichment of one’s personal Nature School Pass, where the competences acquired in each module are noted. Decision-making in the school’s daily life Once a week and during the morning circle, some of the groups have their “class session”. During this time, everybody can express their wishes, issues, suggestions or problems. Decisions are made either by consensus or majority. In other learning groups, this procedure unofficially takes place every day: the moderator of the circle asks if somebody wants to share something with the group. The specific structure of “class sessions” varies and is codetermined.
