Today we tried two challenges that we got from Germany. The „Sailing trip“ was fun, especially the fight with sharks. The „Wall sitting“ was hard on our legs but we fought!

This January the pupils in the preschool classes learn about bird’s life, their food and their body parts. We make paintings, sculptures and our own books about birds.
Every week we go to the forest with our 22 six-year old pupils.
This week we learned about birds. In the forest, we split in small groups who worked together. Each group got a rope and a picture with a bird. The challenge was to use the rope to make the bird’s body contours. The other parts of the bird was to be done with things from the nature.
Pupils in Year 2 (ages 6 and 7) have been really active so far this term. They have been Mexican dancing as part of their learning on celebrations and also took part in a Bollywood Dancing session lead by a parent! Every Tuesday lunchtime there is a scooter and cycling club too.
Every classroom in the Foundation Phase (ages 3 to 7 years) has a SKIP area. Here, pupils can practise their physical skills. Pupils can scan the QR codes to watch a video to help them improve these skills. Every partner in our project now has these QR codes, which were made by the Plascrug Bronze Ambassadors.
The first graders in Oulu have studied animals in science. Recently they practiced classifying animals into vertebrates and invertebrates by playing tree tag. Each student had a picture of an animal which were first studied and classified in class. They had to stand by their own tree. If the teacher shouted „vertebrates“ or “invertebrates”, everyone with a that kind of an animal changed from one tree to another. At the same time, the teacher tried to catch the them before they reached a new tree. The ones caught became new captors.
A tradition at Kleeblattschule is the bicycle training in year 4. In science our pupils learn the all about traffic rules, to read traffic signs and what to do in all kinds of situations a biker can experience. In addition we have a practical training with the police. Pupils improve their bike performance skills for example cycling single handed. In the end they all pass a theoretical and practical test and receive their bicycle riding license.
