English as working language
BIPS-Krones (Bilingual International Primary School) is a primary school with an emphasis on languages and inclusion. The main teaching language in the school is German, however, each class has a designated native English teacher. In addition to one hour of general English language learning, which includes grammar, the children are taught general studies, such as geography, history and science, in both German and English. Learning also continues outside the classroom, as our English teachers accompany their class on field trips and speak to the children in English. Each year group has one integration class, which is led by the primary school teachers and qualified special needs teachers. To give students, who have to attend the intense German class, the opportunity to train their English, there are also extra-curricular English activities on the afternoon.
During the school year 2021/22 we offer: Computer Club, Art Club and Creative Writing.
In each year group there is one integration class, where healthy students and students with special needs learn together in a classroom.
