The traveling water

Posted by in Elements

In secondary school we are working on water. We have decided the name of our project: the traveling water. We work through experiments and it has been a fun activity. We have known the primary colors and also how new colors are created. We have seen how the water goes from one side to another side through paper. Because we liked it a lot, we wanted to share this activity with the whole school and we went to class by class to teach how water traveled.

Dinosaurs Experts

Posted by in Time, Topics

During the topic “Time” the Dragon class (first year) has worked on a big dinosaurs project and pupils became real dinosaurs experts. Teachers decorated the whole classroom with big photos of dinosaurs. They brought books and toys  about the topic, which were available for the pupils all time.

We also crafted dinosaurs out of paper plates and…read more

How was the school 100 years ago?

Posted by in Time, Topics

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!

Posted by in Time, Topics, Uncategorised

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. Thereafter, the students together thought about how you could transform the image into a 3D image. 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

Communication through time

Posted by in Time, Topics

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.
