On Monday, 20 September, 4M had a Science Day – Herbarium of leaves. First, students worked on research skills and tried using the identification Tree key. Then, based on their leaves, they found the names of the trees to which the leaves belong. For each leaf, they wrote the name of the leaf’s tree, location, date, and type. They also designed a table of contents and front page and developed their organization skills. All groups proved that they have good social skills and that they know how to divide work equally. Their results can be seen here.
On Friday, 17 September, the PYP students had a cultural day. The topic was ‘Internationalism’. Students were involved in various activities connected to different cultures and customs, food, games, clothes, music and literature. They especially enjoyed sharing the artefacts and other materials associated with their countries.
As part of the project Library under the treetops, MYP students spent an English lesson reading outside in our school’s playground in September. They found the activity relaxing, calming and healthy since they could spend some time outdoors in the warm sun. Their reflections on ATL skills and Learning profiles are posted in the school hallway. We encourage the students as well as their parents to continue reading outside whenever they get a chance!
On Friday, 10 September, grade 1 students had a very special Library Lesson. After getting to know the Library rules, they had a guided tour and hands-on presentation of our school library, followed by a reading session under the trees on the school playground.
We learned many new things and had great fun while reading “Forest Friends Go To School”, a book by Kathryn Warner, which also talked about respecting the books and the library.

Grade 6 students have prepared an unforgettable shadow puppetry performance consisting of six short plays. They wrote the scripts themselves during Language and Literature under the mentorship of Ms Tina Frelih. The stories were classical fairy tales with a modern twist and important morals of the story. The shadow puppets were made on the collapsed day and finished at Drama lessons. All students exhibited a lot of focus and cooperation in a short period of time. We did not have the usual rehearsal time due to the lockdown. Students have put on a really excellent show, considering we only have 45 minutes a week. We finished the puppets, backgrounds and rehearsed in small groups to show a well put together performance.

Nina Koželj and I cordially invite you all to join us for the Summer Museum Night – an (inter) event of the LIKfest Art Festival.
“We are all in the same boat.”
in front of the Pionirski Dom building on Vilharjeva cesta 11, Ljubljana
OPENING: Saturday, 19 June, at 9.30 pm [until 5 July]
The past year’s reality has profoundly interrupted the continuous exhibition production of the art festival LIKfest. It also made it impossible to present children’s works on the theme of landscape in the gallery of Pionirski Dom. The natural landscape has therefore been replaced by a virtual one this year. The spatial installation in the garden of Pionirski Dom interrogates contact and touch with the help of a virtual language, more precisely a video documentary, where its primary linear narrative, the artistic element of the line resides and settles through the hologram. The light line is subjective and elusive, but above all, difficult to repeat and manifests itself in the installation as a light record. It forms a hologram in the form of a juxtaposition of the work of several cartoonists. The project’s production took place in school environments and continued as group work, hence the installation title.
PARTICIPANTS: Primary school students of the City of Ljubljana

Thank you to everyone who will participate and help us with the project!

You have really made our day. Thank you for your support, guidance, encouragement and participation throughout this tumultuous school year as well as the final days at our school.
Thank you very much!

Students of 5m have finished with their PYP Exhibition this week. It has been a long process and quite an experience. Maria Madeleine Svetlana Magnus wrote an article as part of her action for the exhibition. Through writing it, she has learned how to improve her vocabulary and organization of texts. You are welcome to read it and learn what the PYP Exhibition was all about. (click here)
