The 27th. and 28th. of September Run, jump, learn! had a Transnational Project Meeting in Gijón, Spain. During the meeting, we did the „Atalia School Tour“, we were received by the local authorities in the Town Hall and we did a Spanish inmersion activity.
Our project was in the printed version of our local newspaper, El Comercio.
The last months every school year our school has a reading project together with the library in town. The librarians choose 12 books and our pupils read and judge them. In June we count the points every book has got and celebrate the 5 best books. The pupils who have left a vote can win a book. It’s a very popular project.
This year we wanted to integrate some motion in this project, so we decided to walk through the books. Every class transformed the classroom to a book and last Friday we had our book walk. All the pupils were very engaged in the reading and transforming.
Run, jump, learn! partner schools had a photo competition recently. The children took photos of each other moving. Each photo had to have at least three children moving. Each school then chose and rewarded the school winners. Here are the winning photos for you to enjoy!
Today we had math outside in the snow. Our goal was to practice measurement in meter and centimeter. We worked in groups of 4. First the group prepared the course. Then one pupil went down on a bum slider, two pupils measured and one wrote down the results. Every pupil went 3 rounds, then we worked inside with the results.
Now we have a lot of snow and it is cold. Therefore we have much fun every day in our breaks between lessons. The little football ground is now an ice rink and we can go skating. One the bigger football ground we still play football, even in the snow. Fortunately we have some slopes on our school yard and there we have much fun with the bum sliders.
