Lunch

  • Eating culture and sharing good company: developing a shared eating culture is important to us. The food is tailored to the needs and wishes of children. It is varied, healthy and balanced. We attach great importance to self-determination on part of the child. The children therefore decide for themselves whether, when, with whom, for how long, what and how much they want to eat.
  • Selection of a food supplier: in choosing our food supplier “Porschke”, we ensured that
    … the food is predominantly prepared with fresh ingredients and the ingredients are preferably organically grown.
    … ingredients that some of the children may not be able to eat for religious reasons or due to food allergies/intolerances are avoided.

Projects

At Furtweg all-day education and support of children (GBS), a multitude of projects are offered from Tuesday to Thursday by both internal and external staff. We are mindful of children’s and parents’ wishes and suggestions and implement them if possible. Special skills and abilities of the all-day schooling team are woven into the project activities in accordance with what is required. In the social space, there is close cooperation with the Spielhaus recreational facility as well as the community centre in Eidelstedt.

Offers/projects

  • The open activities can be visited by all children without obligation, so participating in the respective project takes place from 2.15 p.m. to 3.15 p.m.
  • The binding projects are chosen within the framework of the core group jointly with the children and the team leader and are binding for one school term.
  • The gym is available to the different age groups every day on an alternating basis. In addition, the respective year-based teams have their own activities. The children can decide for themselves every day (unless they have opted for a binding project) whether they want to take part in an open project or remain within their year.

Free playing time

During the playing time from 1 p.m. to 2.15 p.m., the children can move freely between the rooms listed below and on the entire outdoor grounds. Besides the classrooms and gym, additional rooms are:

  • The playroom: this room can be used freely for playing. Construction materials, board games, costumes and craft supplies are at hand.
  • The library: the children already know this space from the mornings. In the afternoon it is open every second Tuesday from 2 p.m. The children can read a book here peacefully or simply take a quiet moment.
  • The activity room: in the afternoon the auditorium serves as an additional space for physical activity, in which the children can move about freely with hoops, ropes and often with music.

Learning time

With the start of full-time schooling, the previous homework regulations changed. The students receive working materials especially for the subjects German and mathematics. These are tailored to our school’s own learning plan and syllabus. During the individual learning time the children work on the assigned tasks independently. The educators support them if required. Solution booklets provide the children the option of controlling their own work. At the same time, we want to strengthen the process of learning with and from one another. In addition to the educators helping, the students are also meant to help each other during the learning period.

The entries in the learning diary provide more transparency for students, teachers, educators and parents.

Cooperation // History // Spatial concept

Since the 2012/2013 school year, a cooperation within the all-day education and support of children (GBS) has been in force between the Furtweg primary school and the two independent providers Stiftung Kindergärten Finkenau and SVE-Bildungspartner Hamburg as junior partners.

SVE Bildungspartner gGmbH is a wholly owned subsidiary of the SVE Hamburg sports club.

 

The spatial layout

… of the Furtweg all-day education and support of children (GBS) was developed jointly by the school, the independent organisations and the parents. In the planning it was important to offer the children free spaces to play as well as quiet corners (see also “Free playing time”).

Further cooperation takes place by regular participating in the Eidelstedt district conference (STAKO) and being part of the Eimsbüttel/Eidelstedt districts’ Sozialraumteam (“social-space team”, abbreviated SRT).

Appointments 2021

We always strive to keep news up-to-date, but binding statements and announcements as well as information on closing times are only available from the facility itself.
