Last Friday 8th. we celebrated Carnival at school. We have been working on Prehistory, learning how to get shelter in caves, to set a fire with stones, to paint in stone walls... At the end we dressed up as people from the Stone Age, brave hunters and great artists, like the ones who painted the Altamira caves nearby. It was great fun, yaba-daba-doo!

Project Contents:
The whole project is aimed at children being introduced to the surrounding world in winter. It includes all parts of the General Education Program and uses experiential learning. The project lasts one month and is concluded by a presentation: an outdoor festivity together with parents. It is mainly aimed at the life of birds – how we can help birds to survive winter – bird feeders, bird food. Next in the project we develop the factors that influence the life of birds – ice, snow, cold, and they are followed by experiments.

The making of the bird feeder
Bird food – bird salami, tallow balls, nut cones, peanut chains
Experiments with water – examining the state of water – ice, steam, water, freezing the water, evaporation of water, discovering the properties of water
Drawing on the snow
Building and decorating snowmen
Making paths in the snow using feet – creating labyrinths
Making “Angels“ in the deep snow
Exercise, music and dramatic games
