Friday morning we visited Escola Martim de Freitas. We had to wait in a beautiful room.
After a warm welcome and explanation about the school system there was an English class who gave us a guided tour around the building complex and everywhere a student gave a short explanation.
There was a group of 6 children with special needs who attend some lessons (dance, music and drama) with other children. These children have their own work space with an organized structure. There are two teachers who guide these children. It was good to see how the children were integrated in the common group.
The lessons we attended gave an impression about the school culture. Also here the pupils payed lots of attention to the teacher. Overall we’ve seen motivated teachers and pupils who pay attention. Outside the classrooms the children are very vivid.
We are grateful to have this experience.
