1st. Year Primary School

When regarding the change from Nursery School to Logos International School, the necessity that children should have their own playground, classrooms and dining-room environment in both 1st and 2nd grade of primary school has been taken into account. Establishing these privileged areas within the school’s grounds helps young pupils to adapt to this new stage in a calm, steady and balanced way in accordance to personal development.

The step to primary school is an extension of learnings and the projects worked on at Logos Nursery Campus, where in a climate of values ​​that emphasize respect, solidarity, tolerance and personal responsibility.

Student-teacher-family communication continues to be dynamic and closeYou will find a team of consolidated, dynamic teachers with extensive experience and vocational spirit.

El Ruedo: an exclusive building that makes the change from the recently graduated infant school to “the big school” possible.

PROGRAMME

Through all primary stages, teaching at the Logos School is bilingual in English and Spanish. Language immersion has proven to be the most effective and natural way of learning. The bilingual programme was implanted in Logos School in 1984, so we can be considered pioneers in this aspect.

  • In primary school, pupils have the same English and Spanish teachers for two consecutive years. We believe that this experience enables us:

_ To obtain the best from our students.

_ To get to know our students very well and establish bonds of trust between   family and school.

_ To detect quickly and efficiently any special measures they may need to be taken.

    • A qualified ICT teacher is responsible for the teaching of Computer Science in English, using iPads in the classroom with 1st grade primary pupils and the ICT Laboratory in 2nd grade.
    • All elementary school children have their English and Spanish classrooms. 1st and 2nd primary also have their own arts classroom.
    • Physical Education, Artistic and Dramatic Expression are very important pillars of Integral Formation at Logos and this can always be seen reflected in our way of teaching.
    • English conversation classes weekly with native assistant teachers.
    • Assimilation through “ gamelogy “and applications to learn both in English and Spanish through iPad weekly.
    • We firmly believe in the formation of values, where teachers listen and talk to the students from 1st grade onwards. Children are taught to value and respect themselves, as well as their peers and teachers and the world around them.

      Learning has a significant base with multiple resources, both human and material

      Logos International School could be defined as a traditionally- modern school that aims to be in continuous evolution while committed to the world around us. Teachers are in continuous training and new ways of working in classrooms are implemented based on the actual circumstances and reality of our students.

      The classrooms are equipped with the most modern resources on the educational landscape: computers, i-pads, digital whiteboards, in which both external programme content and specific applications for the corresponding course are displayed.

      The methodology we use is CLIL (Integrated Learning of Content and Foreign Language) which is combined with active, varied and flexible methodologies that are based on “learning by doing”, always agreed upon in department meetings. This method aims to familiarize children with each one of the different activities, and so, in this way, enabling the development of the key competences of the curriculum throughout elementary school and thus maximize learning by intelligences.

      The subjects taught follow the following table: 

      Spanish areas

      English areas
      Spanish language English language
      Mathematics Nature Sciences
      Religion/Social and civic values Social Sciences

      Tutoring is one of the basic pillars on which the centre’s methodology is based.

      The tutors:

      • They coordinate the relationships between teachers and students.
      • They favour the integration, interests and activities of the group.
      • They guide students in their process of intellectual growth and maturation and control their academic performance.
      • They devote special attention to the personal and professional guidance of their tutors.
      • In direct contact with families, they inform parents about the situation of their children and seek, together with them, the best solutions to personal and academic problems.
