On Tuesday we will visit the Naturkundemuseum in Mitte to look at their dinosaur exhibit and study fossils. Thank you to Iwona for helping us out and coming along to chaperone our trip. Students will only need a small backpack containing a snack, a drink and their pencil case for group work at the museum.
We are planning on crafting our own flower exhibit and are looking for cardboard tubes from kitchen towels. If you have more than one to spare, please send all of them in, as we need extras.
A handful of students already have the whole multiplication table memorized by heart, others are still using their addition skills to tackle the more difficult problems. Beginning this week, I will ask the students to start memorizing the tables 5-9. You could support your child by playing games at home, letting them use the Blitzrechnen App and `testing' them or letting them play 10Monkeys Multiplication on the phone or iPad.
Upcoming Events :
Excursion to the Allied Museum: With the motto of 'When Chocolate Rained Down from the Skies', we want to take a journey back in time to the Berlin Airlift. Highlights of the tour are the story of the “chocolate pilot” Gail S. Halvorsen and an inside tour of a British Hastings TG 503 airplane used in the Airlift. Students will craft their own “chocolate parachutes” and have them dropped from the Airlift plane. We will use this excursion to get our historical timeline started, where we will include events that are important to us, our families birthdates and much more.
On the 15th of May the author Lena Hach will visit us in the library and give us a reading from her latest book.
In den Garten der Sinne gehen wir am Montag, den 20. Mai (9:00 Uhr). Schüler lernen hier mit allen anderen Sinnen außer ihrer Sicht ihre Umwelt wahrzunehmen. Sie führen sich gegenseitig mit verbundenen Augen und barfuß durch einen Parcours. Bitte an diesem Tag keine Strumpfhosen anziehen!
We are invited to visit the Barberini Museum in Potsdam on Wednesday the 5th of June for a workshop about Picasso and his late works. We will get a tour of his paintings, talk about his distinctive style and will then go to an art studio inside the building to get our inspirations onto paper and try some of the methods we learned about.
The year went by so fast! We will go on our end-of-year picnic to the playground in Kladow. We will go by S-Bahn to Wannsee and then take the fairy to Kladow on June 14th.
