Democracy with playmobile

Every year there is a special meeting for the speakers of the peergroups. In each class are two pupils elected to live democracy also in this age.
In the recent meeting they discussed about democracy and found out what does it mean to the people. They again used playmobile characters to visualize this hard topic. They created posters and lapbooks.
After the hard work they went to the climbing area in our wood. There they enjoyed the challenge.

Democracy- What ist it to us?


The rooster

Otto Dix (1891-1969) was a famous artist and was born in our city Gera. In this year there would be the 125. birthday of Otto Dix. Since that the towns mayor has announced an award for the best childrens arts belonging to the great son of our town.
Our art tea
cher was wondering for a longer time, because Otto Dix has also created some paintings about the war and the hard life of poor people. Not each one can be understood by our children. So she choose "The rooster".
The pupils in our 4th grade got known to the painting and they decided to create their own rooster. They did very different linocuts. First to draw it, then to cut it into the linoleum, than to cover it carefully with colour and eventually to press it on a piece of paper. Hard job!

 And they got the award!! Congratulations!
 They won one day and a guided tour in the zoo! And they could baptize two roosters!

The literature fair lasted one week.

All pupils from nursery to Primary School were divided in different places to listen to a tale read by a teacher or a volunteer.

Like we did last year, some classes went visiting an exhibition of visual arts based on youth literature books in cooperation with schools of our city.

Literature Fair

The 11th of May was a very special day at our school  because we were celebrating The Literature Fair.  Some students prepared  guessing games based on popular tales like Pinocchio, Cinderella, Puss in Boots, Snow White, Red Riding Hood etc. The youngest  pupils tried to recognize and guess the tales. The students of the middle school put on a play The Cracow Dragon which was based on a very popular Polish legend. Everybody had fun.
