The students of the astronaut class worked in the science course on the topic: “How was the school 100 years ago?“. At the beginning of the course we studied old timetables from 100 years ago and compared them with ours. Furthermore we compared the school rules of that time with our school rules and found a lot of differences. We had a lot of fun doing the practical exercises with pen and ink. We have learned how to write on slate writing boards with slate pencils. We have also tried…read more
Hi everyone! We held our ‘big planning meeting’ for the theme of ‘Challenge’ before Christmas. Each staff team had a ‘table top challenge’ to complete then give feedback – information is below along with photographs from the evening – great fun was had by all. Teachers have been busy planning the challenges for their pupils, to begin after the Christmas holidays, in January. We will provide examples of planning and challenging activities later on in the New Year. We hope you all had a restful Christmas!
In the speech therapy class was working about the emotions and the voice. Our mood influences the voice and the way of speaking. We work on emotions, how we feel, how the other feels and we talk with different voice tones.
In art lessons, the students of the tiger class created a 3D image from a shoebox on the theme “The dissolute time” by Salvador Dali. First of all, the artist and his picture were introduced.

A white shoebox, water color, a small piece of wood, paper and polymer clay were used for the implementation. First, the cardboard was painted, then a piece of paper glued into the box and finally kneaded the watches from…read more
The rocket class has had a really exciting time by exploring how people used to send messages in the past. Travelling through time they constructed drums and tin can-telephones and used morse codes. Of course they also sent messages by these and veriefied the different communication tools. They also tried communication by letter and telephone and had a lot of fun to find out how long the messages took to arrive at the addressees.
Making music needs a good feeling for timing. The Rocket Class practised a lot of timing and the pupils composed their own rhythm-composition. The Highlight was, of course, being on stage in front of all classmates and performing the own composition. Everybody could be very proud of their performance. Applause to all talented and brave musicians! Rocket class in concert:
Our time for the Time-Theme is coming to its end and the Rocket Class got four more boxes to spend their play and rest time in a creative and varied way. The new boxes contain the possibilties to experiment with water and sand, to do some bakery and to play with plasticine. Most of the pupils love choosing a box in the beginning of their leisure time. Some of them need some help to dare the experience which makes them able to make a decision. You can find the description…read more

Finally, everyone…read more
