Among the most important basic things in math are the combinations of ten and the doubles. Year 1 practised these skills this time with balls. They also learned to tell math stories. Each story included both addition and subtraction. One told the story and the other counted it by using twenty frames and red and yellow counters.
„Time to move“ – that’s what teachers at Kleeblattschule said more often than usuall. We try to activate our pupils by integrating an additional activity or TRP game in everyday lessons.That can be a welcome ritual in the morning, an active break in between two parts of a lesson or a TPR song in Science or English.
Besides the increased moving and learning skills, Run, jump, learn! project also offers a chance to get to know new languages. The Run, jump, learn! project club in Pöllönkangas school researched the project countries‘ languages: Finnish, Swedish, German, Spanish and Welsh. We used ICT-tools to help us find out same words in different languages. We also listened to what the words sound like and learned how to pronounce them. We compared the similarities and differences in the languages and words too. Learning languages is fun!
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!
Here are some photos of our Yogance club for our Reception children (age 4 and 5). It is a mixture of yoga and dance where they learned some relaxing breathing techniques and yoga stretching poses and also had lots of fun learning cool hip hop dance moves. This was an after school extra-curricular activity and it was very popular.
We had a wonderful winter day skiing in -8°. It was snowing a bit and there was no wind. We skied to the ski hut nearby, where everybody had lunch and some sweets as well. Some students even wanted to compete in skiing. Are they the future Olympic medalists in cross-country skiing?
