Honeywell

Our fourth-graders had the opportunity to participate in the Honeywell program for schools. During short workshops, they found out why and how planes fly, designed their planes to be functional, experienced the feelings of a pilot in the cockpit, used robots to write their names or program them to find a way out of a maze. Many thanks to our hosts for a pleasant day filled with interesting activities and we believe that we have not visited Honeywell for the last time.

School as gallery, gallery as school

This December, the 8th graders visited the creative environment of artists right in their studio. In the school building, a wooden object by the sculptor and restorer Ondřej Mácha has been on display since the beginning of the school year. Together with other artists, they create in studios on Dukelská, where many moved from Zbrojovka. They managed to meet Vendula Chalánková, known especially for her illustrations and collages. Petr Lysáček, who uses a wide range of media in his work (some of which he mixes together): installation, object, photography, painting, video, performance, and they also saw the work of Ester Hotová, who moves between painting, illustration and installation of prepared biological material. The object on display at the school is made of material that Ondřej recycled. These are the windows of the halls of Zbrojovka, where the artist had studios together with other artists, which collapsed. The installation also includes Verka, a sassy writer popular with children, reacting to the events in her world in a unique way. "She writes wherever she wants and lately she has also been sneaking into exhibition spaces from the street. Mách's grandfather, a hunter, found her freshly run over on the road. He took her to his friend, a taxidermist, and he made sure that Verka could delight others for a long time with his apt lyrics." ................................................... .............................. The event took place as part of the School as a Gallery, Gallery as a School project with the financial support of the statutory city of Brno. Thank you

Project week with the partner school Bielefeld

In November, the 7th grade students had a project week together with the students of the partner German school in Bielefeld. The topic was air quality and the effect on our health, but the main goal was to enable the pupils to get to know each other and practice their language skills - we will be visiting Bielefeld next May. Thanks to the great work of the Black Peppers student team, you too can go through the program of the individual days at a glance.

HOW A BOOK IS CREATED

On Monday, second graders experienced a workshop on HOW A BOOK IS MADE with Pavel Pražák aka Mae Sara. In the beginning, the children learned how a book is created and what forms it can take, they got to know the different professions that are related to the creation of a books, and they tried to make a leporelo. In the second part, children created their own comic stories, situations, illustrations for specific topics. Come see for yourself how they managed to do it on Monday, November 27, 2023 at 4 p.m. at the DIGI Center on the 6th floor of the White house. We cordially invite you to a meeting with the author and a guided tour of the paintings. You can find out why the author calls some of them "pillows" and you can also look forward to a musical surprise. MAE SARA loves watercolors, illustrates, animates, combines images with music. He runs a low-cost publishing house and helps various publications to the world. https://maesara.cz/ Now a campaign is currently running on Hithit, where you can order a leporelo with a pocket atlas of devils in a watercolor version. .............................................................................................................................................................. .........................................................

6TH GRADER'S PROJECT WEEK: SUSTAINABLE NEED

The sixth graders dealt with the issue of sustainability in the first week of November. The aim was to realize how different areas of life work and how each of us can contribute to behaving responsibly towards our planet. The children gathered information not only through various workshops but also in the field (e.g. at the Young Primitive company, which sews sustainable fashion, or in packaging-free shops). In practical workshops, they tried manufacturing according to the principles of reuse/upuse/recycle. In the sewing workshop, for example, they used fabric scraps to make bags for packaging-free shops, in the carpentry workshop they made soccer goals and flower curtains from wood scraps, and in the kitchen they processed organic apples for dried apple chips or apple dessert. On Friday, the sixth graders prepared a presentation for their parents and everyone left with their personal "action plan" for sustainable behavior, i.e. in which way they will try to change their behavior in the following month in order to put less burden on the environment.

LAB-O-WEEN AT LABYRINTH

At the end of October, our school again tuned in to the Halloween note. With the support of the Democratic School Parliament and the afternoon school club, Lab-o-ween was organized thru the whole school. The costumes were really imaginative, there were activities and various goodies. Also there was an election of the best masks. Katie, Adina and Anička from the 6th grade prepared a Halloween candy store. Halloween learning was going on thru whole day. Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favor, so the afternoon light parade on the way to Petrinum could not take place, but the children still enjoyed their Halloween day.

To the Eiffel Tower and beyond

The third week of October brought to our sixth graders the discovery of new landscapes, tastes, smells and, above all, new Czech-French friendships. As part of the Erasmus+: Mobility project, we explored the beauties of Paris and our partner school, Lab School Paris. A warm welcome awaited us at the school accompanied by a tasting of French cheeses and the preparation of pancakes. We did not leave the discovery of Paris to chance and visited everything that a true traveler must see. We viewed the city from the top of the Eiffel Tower, we admired Notre Dame in the evening, relaxed on a cruise on the Seine and immersed ourselves to the past with the beauty of art in the Louvre. We brought home not only a lot of experiences from Paris, but new friendships too. Not just among Parisian children, but especially among us sixth-graders, and that counts.
