Fundamental II


In this segment, we observed significant changes in the development of students "the last traces of childhood give way to a new body and new ways of understanding the world".In order to respond to these changes in adolescence, Colégio Castelo introduces two new challenges in school dynamics, through which it seeks to maintain a positive link with learning and the knowledge that is built in previous grades.Gradually, the curriculum gains a more political character and is increasingly focused on the universe beyond the school walls. It is time to deeply discuss cultural, political, economic, technological and environmental events, whether in close or distant contexts.


Since the early grades, there are Pedagogical actions aimed at learning effective ways of studying. In Fundamental II, this purpose is intensified, and the study becomes the central theme around which the teaching proposals are developed. It is important to learn to study, and the student must safely face the challenges of the various disciplines in the segment. Specialist professors are dedicated to teaching and applying appropriate procedures for each area of ​​study.

At various times, teachers contribute to expanding the repertoire of study strategies. They guide the production, resumption and reflections on the work developed by the class. Before the evaluations, they give guidelines for specific studies, suggesting ways to review the contents worked on. Progressively, each teacher and the students themselves develop study guidelines based on known procedures, which they share in class, becoming more autonomous.

At this stage, studying is no longer limited to making lessons proposed by the teacher. Students are expected to devote about an hour and a half to two hours of home study each day, including proposals, study activities and autonomous review, as well as readings of their own choosing or indicated by the school. You don't learn to study just by doing homework, others are necessary for this achievement.

The curriculum of Colégio Castelo is organized as a spiral, in which the concepts appear many times over the years, with an increasing degree of complexity. Understanding and deepening are privileged, and memorization is seen rather as an instrument of learning. Learning situations are always significant and, when possible, integrate more engaging projects. Among other resources, didactic sequences are activities organized according to the students' possibilities of understanding, which ensures that they establish the maximum possible relationships between the contents, resulting in real knowledge. School situations are important experiences that bring a lot of knowledge beyond the disciplinary ones.


A escolha do sistema de avaliação decorre da metodologia, de modo que ela começa antes mesmo da atividade de aprendizagem, estando presente durante o trabalho com os alunos e também ao final do processo. A cada conteúdo, definem-se o que os alunos devem aprender e os critérios de avaliação, ou os indicadores de que eles aprenderam.

Durante o trimestre, várias ferramentas serão utilizadas para os professores sondarem a efetivação da aprendizagem. Entre outras, ocorrerão Avaliações Multidisciplinares, Específicas Parciais, Provas Principais, Trabalhos e Tarefas de casa.


The family's participation in activities within Colégio Castelo, establishes the child's emotional bonds with the school. Each year, family members participate in activities in the school environment. They are highly anticipated occasions for all, when students receive their dear guests to do different things together (tributes, cantatas, visits from parents to talk about their professions, friend's day, etc.).
