An interesting story about the first month of the new year in ou schools. Are you ready?
🌠We rode the technological wave of January to reach the Space:
💫We visited exciting space exhibitions – calculated our weight on each planet, learned about various types of rockets and their purpose.
🚀 💫Now we know that space exploration became possible due to invention of jet-propulsion engine and further studies that led to creation of rockets. By the way, a rocket is shaped like a squid – a see clam demonstrating an example of jet-propulsion movement in nature. That’s why each team used improvised means to demonstrate jet-propulsion movement, which they received in different ways, at the defence of projects.
💫We created the model of movement of the Earth, the Moon and the Sun – the «Telurium».
💫We made a video episode of a scientific TV show, in which we presented our knowledge about the planets of the Solar system.
💫We amazed the audience with our magic tricks, illusions and performances.
💫We created models of our own planets. Some of the planets were edible, so we had quite a treat 😉
💫We built space crafts and systems at the robotechnics lessons.
💫We presented our own inventions: a helicopter, a lamp, a telescope, a compass, a wheel.
💫We cited rap about the planets.
💫Having landed on the Moon, we applied our knowledge in robotechnics to save our planet satellite from garbage. And in order to return home, our space explorers had to crack the rocket launch code. For a safe and soft landing, they danced a nice dance and gave each other a warm hug. With every new day we explored amazing new facts about the Space. An now we are off for a new adventure. At the end of this February the children will presented their own startups within the new wave immersion.
Christmas farewell ceremony, or “Rozkoliada”, became the final point of our winter holidays. 💫Happy and abundantly, with koliada (hose-to-house caroling), vertep (the nativity performance) and the goat walking (miracle-play with a goat, traditional for Christmas in Ukraine), the students of 1-4 grades said good-bye to the winter holidays. And they also spent a lot of time together, joking, talking, having fun and caroling.
💫Some famous and rare schedrivky carols were sung by the students of the first and the second grades. The third grade student performed the nativity play (vertep) both in the traditional and the new way, drawing the audience’s applause and fascination. The fourth-graders told us about Ukrainian Christmas traditions and customs, and then played “the goat walking”.
💫Senior school students presented Christmas traditions from different parts of Ukraine (Halychyna, Polissia, the Tracnscarpathia, the Southern Ukraine), uniting them all with Vertep – a nativity play with caroling and jokes.
We always wait eagerly to see Vertep for Christmas, in our homes, offices and on the streets.
Our third meeting was devoted to presents for the kids and the ability to balance between the needs and the fancies. In revealing this topic, we were assisted by psychologist Ms Nataliia Pashko and the book by Ron Lieber “The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who Are Grounded, Generous and Smart About Money”. We hope that everyone had insights and received the answers to their questions. Continue reading →
