Team- and Projectwork | Phorms Hamburg

    We attach great importance to guiding our students towards autonomous learning and to supplementing our teaching by hands-on experiences. For this reason, our teachers regularly use projects as a framework for the delivery of contents.

    Students undertake activities such as excursions as well as theatre and museum visits to relating topics. They interview experts, construct models, carry out experiments and prepare presentations. The children learn how to approach a topic in an independent and creative way, how to work from a number of different angles and how to conduct a group presentation.

    It is important to us that our students learn appropriate social behaviour and how to work in a group. Group work is a source of motivation for the children. They assume responsibility together, learn how to organise themselves, inject their own ideas and learn from one another. For this reason, we are always seeking to form teams. This is an approach we adopt in sport, where fair play and team work are an integral part of teaching, and as an overall philosophy which extends across the other subjects.
