C/ Virgen de los Rosales 1 – 28023 – Madrid
During the Primary Education stage, our students continue laying the foundations of their learning. Our main goal in these school years is the strengthening of linguistic skills logic skills. Arithmetic, problem solving, reading comprehension, and verbal expression – oral or written – are essential in this period.
A significant part of the weekly timetable is also dedicated to immersion in the English language. Beginning in 5th Primary, students engage in the study of a second foreign language, which they can choose freely from French, German, or Chinese.
All classrooms are equipped with digital whiteboards, through which students become familiar with Information and Communication Technologies, and learn in a highly motivational, interactive way.
Primary Education also introduces a subject devoted exclusively to study techniques, to help students establish solid work habits, and furnish them with the tools to learn effectively.
Thanks to a project launched by the Music Department, all our students are able to learn a musical instrument. Beginning in their 5th year of Primary Education, instrument lessons take place every week inside the regular school timetable, as part of the Music subject. Students can choose from violin, violoncello, flute, guitar, or drums. Music is approached both individually and collectively, as students are grouped into different ensembles.
Apart from academic learning, the school places significant focus on making students autonomous, and furnishing them with the necessary social skills. Cooperative learning structures are encouraged in numerous classroom activities. The educational project also places great emphasis on fostering positive values and healthy habits – the latter through Physical Education and a carefully structured nutrition.
Parent-teacher conferences, coordinated with the Counselling Department, are effective means or overcoming any difficulties that might present themselves during the learning process.
