Information for Wednesday, 9 June 2021

Dear parents,

As you have probably already learned from the media, all the children from one class can come to school at the same time from Wednesday, 9 June 2021. This email is to inform you of how we plan to organise this development.

The current plan will continue until the summer holidays, with the only change being that all the children in a class should attend and come to school every day. Start and end times, as well as break and meal times, remain the same. Besides subject teaching, the focus in the last two weeks will be on bringing together the two groups that have been separated for months. The teaching staff will carefully initiate this process with excursions, detailed discussions and social learning.

Since compulsory attendance is suspended until the summer holidays, we would be pleased if you could pick up your children immediately after classes or let them go home themselves. However, childcare until 4.00 p.m. is guaranteed if required. In this case, please speak to the educator responsible.

As things stand today, full classroom teaching will continue in the next school year. If there are any changes, we will inform you in good time.


Yours faithfully,


  1. Effenberger


In memory of Laura Kluge

Dear parents,

Unfortunately, I have to bring you the sad news today that our colleague Laura Kluge died  during the Easter break after a serious illness. We are all shocked, stunned and left in deepest sadness. Laura left us much too early. We will miss Laura very much.

No Face-to-Face from April 12th

Attention please note!

From April 12th, face-to-face classes will continue for all grades in divided groups (A and B weeks). If there are any changes to this fact, we will inform you immediately.

The Senate Administration has decided that from April 19, a Corona rapid test will be mandatory for all students, twice a week.

This test should be guided in the school by the teacher. The Senate Administration has also published an explanatory video on the process. So that you can get an idea of ​​how the test should work, you will find the link to the video here:

Here is the official brochure on the rapid tests

Class 5 eu A Winner of the Schulterblick Festival

Corona Phantasien 5euA
First Place Winner Of The Schulterblick
We are the 5euA and we won the Schulterblick Festival! Our teacher, Ms
MacLean, had the idea of us making a film. So, she asked a film director,
Carsten Volk, if he would make a film with us. Even if he had the fullest
schedule known to man he still came! We already had a plan for a film,
so we told Carsten and Carsten thought for a day. Then he came back and
said what we could do better. After he told us what we could do better, the
filming began. Sometimes some of us would still have lessons because
only the actors would go to places where the scene was going to be acted.
All the scenes together took 5 days and Carsten´s cutting and adding of the
music t ook 3 days. We saw it on Thursday. When Ms M a c L ean told us
about the festival and we heard that there were 22 films competing we all
lost hope and thought that we wouldn`t even be shown. Then it was time.
We all were watching from home. Lots of films were s hown but not ours
we had all officially lost hope! Then the last film was shown. We all
thought it wouldn`t be our film. Then the moderator said, “and now the last
film, 5euA from the Charles Dickens school”. We all couldn`t believe what
we were seeing! Then they listed the films. It started ! W e thought that we
would be 5 th place directly but we weren`t 5 th Not 4 th not 3 rd and not 2 nd
and then we all knew that we were 1 st And that we would all get a voucher
of 65 Euros! But the main thing was the f un we had making the film

What is the Corona Stufenplan? 

The Corona Stufenplan is a four-tier stage-plan (i.e. a plan consisting of 4 stages or phases: 1. Green,  2. Yellow,  3. Orange, and 4. Red ) for Berlin schools. This Corona Stufenplan serves as a guide for the measures to be taken based on the rate of infection in Berlin, in the local district and at the affected school. This stage/phase plan shows which measures are to be taken if there is a change in the rate of infection.

The first two pages of the Corona Stufenplan (Berlin Corona 4 Stages/Phases Plan) are particularly relevant to primary schools in Berlin. Please go to:
