Age range:9 - 11 years
« Our community» is a programme in primary education, intended for pupils aged 9 to 11 (Cycle 3.2 or 4.1).
The programme consists of five didactic units (5 × 50-60 minutes) and provides pupils with the necessary skills and knowledge, in order to understand how people, businesses and municipalities work together, as a community. Furthermore, it forges a link between formal education and the reality of the economic environment. The units provide a variety of age-appropriate exercises and activities which complement each other and foster pupils’ development, skills and interests.
Taking decisions, as well as continuously adapting to the world of work and its requirements are important skills. The programme thus aims to develop children’s sense of initiative, their ability to identify and value their personal qualities as well as assuming their responsibilities in a group.
This programme is taught by a specifically trained volunteer from the business world who will be provided with educational material.
