Holidays at the school by trimester in 2019-2020
Obtaining knowledge is the most important stage in the development of any personality, therefore it is necessary to organize this process competently. The standards of work and rest of schoolchildren dictate frequent breaks in school, and minimal psychological stress. This can be achieved by dividing the 2019-2020 school year with the help of vacations into several trimesters. Children are more likely to relax, but they also regularly write control sections.
About the trimester training system
One of the first advantages of a modular education system was appreciated by German teachers, who introduced this approach to learning in the last century. Of course, those trimesters that are now being introduced in Russian institutions are fundamentally different from the foreign prototype. The German experience is taken as a basis, and further adjustments are made within the Russian system.
Disciplines in the Russian Federation are not studied separately for 1 semester, but are stretched for the entire academic year 2019-2020. A significant difference also lies in the fact that the summer holidays for schoolchildren last 3 months. For Russians, the plan under consideration divides 9 months into six work blocks, and between them the school goes for a week's rest.
According to professionals, trimesters have a number of advantages:
- Firstly, frequent rest reduces the workload, which reduces psychological and emotional stress, and the load is distributed evenly.
- Secondly, in the presence of three periods of training, teachers have a more accurate assessment system, and this eliminates possible contentious issues.
- Thirdly, trimesters help to reduce the incidence rate, because vacations often fall on spikes of viral infections.
Of course, someone rejoices in such a training scheme, while someone votes for its elimination. What problems do parents of schoolchildren often have? First of all, there is the problem of who will look after the children during the holidays, with the trimester system of education, and it is also difficult to adapt some children. After all, someone after a period of "buildup" requires a long time to gather for study.
Structure of the 2019-2020 school year
It should be noted that the first call in the 2019-2020 academic year falls on September 2, while the last - on May 25, it is possible to extend studies until May 29. The first half of the year includes modules lasting 5 weeks, and the second six months - 6 weeks each.
In the first trimester, studies will begin on September 2, and will last until October 4 and 5 (for five-day and six-day days, respectively). Vacations will begin on October 7 and end on 13 so that the children go to classes on October 14. Then, until November 15 and 16, students study, going on vacation from November 18 to 24.
The second trimester starts on November 25, and until December 26-28, children receive knowledge, after which the New Year holidays in 2020 will begin and will end on January 8. For study, schools will open on January 9, the next vacation will start from February 17 to 24. After studying from February 24 to April 3 and 4, the children will go to rest from April 6 to 12. The educational process will resume on April 13 and end on May 25 so that summer starts holidays from May 26 to August 31.
School holidays schedule
The first vacation period falls immediately in October, and falls on the week between October 7 and 13. Schools with five days will have a rest of 9 days: 7 vacation days, plus weekends. The beginning of the second vacation shows that the first academic trimester is completed. Rest will last from November 18 to 24.
New Year's holidays, the third in a row, will last from December 28 to January 8, which is less than the usual period. Five days will allow you to relax for 12 days: 10 vacation and weekend. Winter transfers are possible if January 4 and 5 go to 9 and 10. Then the children will go to school on January 13, on Monday. When transferring, rest will be 16 days in a row. Scheduled February holidays during trimesters will be held from February 17 to 24.
The fifth vacation period will begin on April 6, and will end 12. So, the final sixth block will be held as quickly as possible, since it covers the May holidays of 2020. The scheme of May work and rest has not yet been approved, and there is the likelihood of a long weekend. Sixth summer vacation starts on May 26th.
Possible timing adjustment
Quarterly boundaries very often force schools to transform work schedules and schedules, which happens less often with trimester divisions. Therefore, the dates shown above will remain approximate, and some changes are possible. Naturally, there remains the risk of quarantining the institution in 2019-2020, or stopping the study process for other reasons. But the shift in the timing is not allowed for more than 2 weeks.
A new trend in the educational sphere is the system of trimesters, previously alien to the Russians. But trying to establish an individual framework, the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation relies on overseas experience, and as a result they produce a domestic product.
