Our discovery workshops



The will of our elementary school LA BOÉTIE is that the training programs correspond to the base base pre-established and in conformity with that of the National Education (french). Nevertheless, we propose to our students various workshops that will be in constant connection with the cycle of fundamental learning.


Cross-curricular competencies correspond to know-how based on the efficient mobilization and use of a set of resources that are made available to students.

They are complementary to one another and every complex situation necessarily calls for several of them at the same time.






(*): workshops marked with an * are part of the National Education program of cycle 2 which are taught in the morning with the teacher.

Objective: The practice of philosophy should enable children to provide answers to the philosophical and metaphysical questions they raise. Also address questions, concerns that arouse in them the vagaries of their daily life or environment. The aim is to pursue a didactic approach based on the cognitivist and constructivist theory of learning (Piaget and Vigotsky). Students construct their own knowledge with the help of their teacher and other students. The aim of this exercise is to enable students to develop their oral expression, vocabulary and make sense of it.

To affirm one's ideas and points of view by giving them value while listening and respecting those of others, is also to know how to develop one's critical sense and structure one's arguments.

Purpose: Emotional intelligence refers to the ability to identify, access and control emotions and those of others.


  • Learning to manage emotions in children will evolve according to 4 levels:


1. Recognizing emotional responses through voice and face-viewing (non-verbal communication).

2. Determine the emotion and name it. 

3. Recognize the emotional situation.

4. Make connections as to the causes of the emotion and the possible consequences.




Purpose: The most widely spoken language in the world is Chinese with English. Chinese is currently the 5th most taught language in France. Switching from one language to another is a good way to "muscle the brain". The alternation of an analytic writing (French) to an ideographic writing (Chinese) proves an additional challenge for our neurons. Bilingual subjects thus develop a certain "mental agility".
