Berichte vom England-Austausch 2009:

Unterricht  in England, und anderes...!



Während unseres Aufenthalts in England waren wir 2 Tage mit unseren
Austauschpartnern in der Schule. An manchen Stunden konnten wir nicht
teilnehmen, da Experimente gemacht wurden, aber im Großen und Ganzen ist zu
sagen, dass der Unterricht sich nicht sonderlich von dem an unserer Schule
unterscheidet. Obwohl die Schule in Jungen und Mädchen aufgeteilt ist, finden
manche Stunden auch zusammen statt. Die englischen Schüler haben nicht wie
wir Deutschen 12 oder 13 Unterrichtsfächer, jedoch ein viel größeres Angebot
an Sportwahlfächern, zum Beispiel Trampolin springen, Tennis, Rugby, Fußball
usw., was zum Teil 3 Schulstunden in Anspruch nahm. Der Tennisunterricht
fand nicht an der Schule statt, nach dem Umziehen stiegen die Schüler in
einen kleinen Bus und fuhren ca. 15 Minuten zu Tennisplätzen.

Weder in der normalen Schulzeit noch beim Sport ist private Kleidung gestattet. Außerdem
bietet die Schule viele künstlerische Fächer an, wie zum Beispiel Drama. An
der englischen Privatschule sind Klassen kleiner, so dass die Lehrer mehr
auf jeden einzelnen Schüler eingehen und gezielt fördern können. Es ist
keine Seltenheit, dass weniger als 10 Schüler an einem Fach teilnehmen, da nicht
alle Schüler die gleichen Fächer wählen. Am Anfang jedes Tages treffen sich
die Engländer in ihrem Klassenraum und warten, bis ein Lehrer in den Raum
kommt und ihre Anwesenheit prüft. Anschließend gehen die Schüler zu dem
jeweiligen Fachraum des Lehrers. Sie hatten häufig Doppelstunden, aber keine
Pausen zwischendurch, dafür dauerte die Lunchpause 90 Minuten. In dieser
Zeit gibt es warmes Essen, man kann draußen Rugby und Fußball spielen oder
einfach nur mit Freunden reden. Im Unterricht werden oft schriftliche
Aufgaben gemacht und es gibt wenige Möglichkeiten sich mündlich zu
beteiligen. Häufig war es so, dass die Schüler wussten, was sie schriftlich zu
erledigen hatten, wenn der Unterricht begann, und somit waren sie die ganze
Stunde beschäftigt. Der Unterricht fängt später als in Deutschland an, geht
jedoch bis ca. 15:35Uhr.


Im Allgemeinen fanden wir es gut, dass die Klassen klein waren und der
Lehrer mehr Zeit mit den Schülern verbrachte. Wir waren ebenfalls von den
vielen Sport- und anderen Angeboten der Schule begeistert, da für jeden
etwas dabei war, wofür er sich begeistern konnte.

Diary entry: 24th March, 2009

 

The first two lessons were German. Parts of the body, what we do during the day and “my town and my area around” were the issues. It was about life in city or village in which you are living. It was quite funny and we, the Germans, learned a new word: “Ellbogenmentalitӓt”. It means that in a society people only think about themselves and they don’t mind if other people get hurt by this.

The next double lesson was biology. They were about DNA and cloning. But it was difficult to understand because the teacher talked very fast and cloning includes many unknown words, like diploid.

After this, it was lunch time for about 1h30. In a huge room full of pupils, food was offered (like noodles or even steak).

The fifth lesson was English. They were talking about poems. The poem was very difficult (it’s called “the last duchess”) and we were not able to understand it. The teacher said it was about a man who killed his wife.

The last three lessons (yes, a triple lesson!) were sports. The boys played rugby and we, the Germans, were allowed to play with them (only one did, the others thought it was too dangerous if they tackled you).The ones who didn’t play were allowed to go around the school or do whatever they wanted, but that  was rather boring.

After school, we went home and did things like going to town and shopping or just staying at home and playing something.

Trip to York

 

 

For most of us our trip started early in the morning because we had to meet at  8.30 am. at Dame Allan´s School, Assembly hall. Today was a very exciting trip because we went on it together with our English exchange partners. The journey to York was very long. It took approximately two hours. When we arrived at York two guides were wating for us to show us the old part of York. One guide spoke German and the other guide spoke English. It was very pleasant for the German students that the guide spoke German. The guide showed us a lot of interesting things like the old city wall, the abbey, an medieval hospital, the minster and much more. After the  guided tour we had nearly two hours of free time. In York there are many small restaurants and some nice shops there are also FOUR Starbucks. There is a shop in which you can buy things related to movies and music groups like posters, cups with pictures on them, huge pictures etc. . After our free time we went in groups of 20 students to the „Yorvik Viking Museum“. In the museum we travelled back in time to 975 A.D., but there was an error in the system so we travelled back to nearly 860 when the vikings first arrived in York. Then we went to a second time machine which brought us back to 975 and told us the story of York from about 860 up to 975 in German or English. During the trip we saw automated people who did  things typical of that time and gave us an idea of what life was like at the time of the Vikings. After our time trip we had free time again in which we were able to walk around the viking gift shop and back to the Minster. At 4.00 pm. we had a very relaxed journey back to Newcastle.

All in all it was a very interesting excursion because we saw a lot of historical buildings and we had more free time than on the previous trips, besides that we had a lot of fun together with our English exchange partner

And last but not least the weather was great again as it has been for the whole week!

Ceilidh

 

 

Wir und unsere Gastfamilien wurden am Samstagabend zu einem Ceilidh, einem schottischen Volkstanz, eingeladen. Dieser Ceilidh war zugleich unser Abschiedsfest.

Unter Begleitung einer berühmten Ceilidhband und unter Anweisung deren „Callers“ haben wir verschiedene Tanzschritte je nach Art des Ceilidhs getanzt. Diese jeweiligen Tanzschritte hatten wir vor den Tänzen ohne Musik mit dem „Caller“ eingeübt. Der schottische Volkstanz wird in kleinen Grüppchen mit jeweils 2, 4 oder 5 Pärchen getanzt, wobei die Pärchen idealerweise aus Mann und Frau bestehen sollten. Nach jedem Tanz, der ca. 5-10 Minuten dauerte, gab es eine Pause, in der wir uns am mitgebrachten Buffet bedienen durften.

In der Mitte des Abends haben sich Christopher, Ann-Kathrin, Hasan und Tobias im Namen von uns allen bei Frau Borland und Frau Martens-Hoppe mit einer kleinen Aufmerksamkeit für den Austausch bedankt.

Insgesamt war es ein gelungener, mit viel Spaß verbundener Abend und eine weitere tolle Erfahrung.

Friday, 20th March, 2009

 

On our first full day in England, we started with lots of sightseeing in
Newcastle. After we had a quick look at Dame Allan's School, we had a
guided tour through Newcastle. The tour guide showed us all the
important old (and new) buildings in the city. Beginning with the old
ones in the city centre, we finished our tour at the quayside. After the
tour, we knew all bigger bridges over the river Tyne and how Newcastle merchants
lived in the old days, and so on...
Although that sounds boring: The city tour was probably a good start,
because we got a good overview of Newcastle.
Right after the tour, we needed that overview because we had free time
after that. One hour to look around in Newcastle, which was a nice
chance to go around, but way too short to have a look at all the shops
in the city centre.

 


At the end of our free time, we all met at Grey's Monument. Then we went
to a tour through St. James' Park, Newcastle's football stadium.
We heard lots of things about NUFC (Newcastle United Football Club, what
a long name) and we' saw the complete stadium, from the edge of the
pitch, the "boxes“ and the lounges to the last row. We could even see
the player's changing rooms. Overall, it was very interesting and a nice
way of finishing our first visit to Newcastle. Then we returned to Dame Allan’s School and went back home with our hosts.

Trip to Durham

 

Our trip to Durham was great. First of all we met at Dame Allen’s School. Then we traveled on the bus to Durham. There we met our nice guide, who showed us the sights of the city. Our favourite sight was Durham Cathedral. The best view was from the other side of the river, the name is Wear. A woman showed the whole group the inside of the cathedral. One of the details was that the first part of the Harry Potter movies was shot in it. After that interesting tour, we had freetime for two hours. At four o’clock we travelled back to school. In the school we were surprised, because we thought that Marcus sent the alarm call. The moment after we knew that this was a fire drill. And again we had an exciting day on our exchange in England.

 

 

 

 

Exchange visit to England  2009

 

Monday, the 23rd March 2009

 

That day we went to Scotland to visit Edinburgh. The journey from Newcastle to Edinburgh was about 2 hours and the train drove along the coast. First we went to the palace of Edinburgh, which was very nice, but we weren't allowed to go inside, so we had to take our photos from outside. Then we went to the House of Parliament, which was a very new and modern building. It had a very special construction. There we were allowed to go inside and we saw the big hall. After that we walked up the Royal Mile to EdinburghCastle. On the way to the castle we saw some old cathedrals and old buildings. The castle is on a hill, so it was very windy and cold upon there, but the view was great. When we arrived at the castle we saw and heard the canon at 1 o'clock. Then we visited the museum of the castle, which was very interesting and we got some interesting information. After the time in the castle we had some free time in the downtown of Edinburgh. Some of us bought souvenirs for their families like a kilt. After that we went to the Camera Obscura. There we saw the whole city with a very small mirror and we got some interesting facts. After that we had some more free time and then at 7pm went home again by train.

 

All together it was a very interesting day and we made some experince. In our opinion Edinburgh is a very nice city for tourists because of its attractions (castle, palace etc.).
