Across the UK, about 20 per cent of primary school children don’t speak English as their first language. Some were born here or have lived here for some time but use another language at home; others are new arrivals to the UK.

The home learning policy adopted by OBS Primary School aims to reinforce this approach despite its differences to a strict no-homework policy applied at some other schools. More specifically, we ask children to read as much as possible, build their vocabulary and learn their weekly spelling, challenge their mathematical skills with our online programmes and complete any unfinished class work.
In our bilingual primary school, the subjects mathematics and German are taught in German in all grades. The subjects English, music, science, ethics as well as movement, games and sports are usually taught in English. The children speak, read and write in German and English from the first grade onwards.
Homework at primary school. It is usual for young children to have school work to do with parents at home (homework), for example, taking to school photos of home or family, sharing special objects or celebrations with the class. Ask the school office if your child is unclear about the homework. Older children will have reading homework and extra work in maths, English or science to prepare.

The best age goes from birth to pre-school.
