Playing the piano is like dancing with your fingers…
Celebration in May in School club was a joyful thing,
Sun, music and games, that's what comes with spring.
Winter is gone and spring is here, the sun brings its warming cheer.
Flowers blooming, animals waking, we will see what the garden will bring.
The children put on masks,
having fun was their main task,
Carnival came just in time.
Wars, fights, abuse,
There's not enough love.
After the world slows down,
Peace comes into our mind.
Listening and understanding are our tools of peace,
Not just in the big world
But also in our daily routines.
Helping gives us wings to fly,
our hearts are never shy.
Our parents, sweet as honey,
Bought our love-gifts with their money.
With the last autumn rays shining and keeping us warm, we continued with our crafts and decorations
One afternoon, School club 4 turned into a secret slime production Factory.
We had a lovely and playful autumn afternoon.
On June 13, 2018, two musical concerts took place at our school. The first was performed for pupils of the first year and the second concert was for the parents. Yamaha pupils showed what they had learned during the year and played on these musical instruments: flutes, guitars, keyboards and drums. You can also see our music talents in photos too.
At the end of the school year, everyone enjoys the ending performances. One is called STARS. Students and pupils from BESST went to the school yard on June 8, 2018 and presented singing, dancing and language skills and talents to family and friends. They presented these clubs: singing, hip hop, Spanish, dramatic and dancing. There was a loud audience applause in the sunlit playground.
On June 7, 2018, a piano concert was traditionally held at our school. You could hear beautiful tones of modern and folk songs. Our pupils had the opportunity to try out what it is like to play in front of the audience and they showed what they learned.
In April, we had an interesting and also educative presentation called Recycling. Children learned how to separate waste, watched video tutorials, presentations, and verified knowledge through entertaining quizzes. We used recyclable materials (eg plastic bottles, rolls, tops from the PET bottles, cans, plastic bags, polystyrene and newspaper paper) to produce artworks. Children made a great deal of interest and were looking forward to what they could produce from non-traditional materials. Our poster boards are now decorated with beautiful green snakes, interesting colorful seahorses, playful turtles, nice lambs and chameleons, aquariums with fish, spring flowers, funny octopuses and original paper bags. Older students from the Teens club helped us with the title "Recycling" from different materials. We celebrated the Earth Day in this way too.
The spring came with the Easter holidays as well. Weather and nature around us are changing, and we remind ourselves of Easter traditions. For a few days our school club changed into a Easter decoration factory. We drew chickens, bunnies, and decorated with interesting techniques. We also tried to work with water glass and plant easter rye. Older pupils made some bunny noses and learned hor to weave „korbáč“.
Teens club is the aftertnoom school club, which represents fun and rest for second graders pupils. Pupils play board-games after school, talk to each other, and use ICT for creating projects. They have good conditions for preparing for school for the next days. Their educator is Mr. John. He is helpful and openminded. When students do not have after school activities they have opportuninty to spend their time actively by playing table tennis, dodgeball, football or just being outside and using work-out machines on back yard. In this club we are always allright.
At the end of February, our gym turned into a colorful carnival. There were princesses, pirates, dancers, but also warriors, Indians, cowboys and other original masks. The competition was a piece of cake for some kids and they were full of fun. The reward was applause and diploma, which hold the red team. Carnival continued with dances and evaluation of masks. The prize and diploma won eight of the most beautiful masks and one hand made mask. The sweet reward did not leave any of the masks. We look forward to this action again next year!
The month of January was in the spirit of "The small people" living in the end of the world, full of secrets, mysteries and legends. Eskimo, or Inuit,
small, strange yellowish and brownish colour, with round faces, slanting eyes, wrapped up in furry fur, became the object of child creation in the after school club.
Polar bears, seals, whales and beautiful portraits of Inuit drawings are the result of the effort of our children and they decorate the common school boards.
Christmas spirit was present in every corner of our school in December. The Wish Fulfilling Tree was lit once again with love and compassion as we gathered gifts for non-profit organization Plamienok. The organization works with terminally ill children, so they don't have to be at the hospital but at home, with their parents and close family surrounded by love. The professional team visits them at home and provides them with medical, nursing, psychosocial and spiritual care. Thanks to BESST parents, students and employees we were able to help by donating gifts and fundraising money (437 euros) at The Club Christmas Market. Big THANKS to everyone involved!
We tried to promote a good thing and we decided to sell our products from Christmas markets and pay for the non-profit organization Plamienok. We organized charity markets with children and we opened a small booth with our products in one afternoon. Children turned into skilled salespeople, and parents and teachers became generous buyers. We collected a nice amount of money for which we thanks everyone.
We can feel pleasant Christmas atmosphere in our school. We are already the mood too, and in the days from 04.12. - 08.12.2017 we opened Christmas workshops in ŠKD. We invited Mrs. Claudia M., who is a mum of our student Aila M. We created hand-made Christmas decorations, glittering snowflakes, little Christmas trees from cones, snowmen from clothes pegs and Christmas greetings. Pupils from other clubs Art workshop, Intuitive crafts, Art studio joined in with us too and they were creating hearts from beads, angels, Christmas wreaths, candleholders and weights. We are slowly creating the Christmas atmosphere that you can smell everywhere in our school
