May 2022 – A visit to a partner school in Vilnius, Lithuania
International Day of the Planet Earth
Every year on April 22, the International Day of the Planet Earth is celebrated with the aim of raising awareness of environmental threats, as well as drawing attention to the significance of protecting nature and preventing negative consequences to the environment. This year we celebrated this important date with various activities:
On the Day of planet Earth, we handed the canvas bags that we made from used clothes. We also handed flyers with eco messages.
First-grade students planted two white pine seedlings.
During planting, they learned about the importance of protecting the environment and the importance
Within the project Teaching, art and science third class students realized the project Relief of our region. Modeling clay used for shaping and sculping was made by children, using only natural materials.
In order to increase biodiversity and sustainable development of our region, the older students planted a mini forest of indigenous species of trees and shrubs.
In order to increase biodiversity and raise awareness of the importance of plants for human health, younger students planted medicinal plants.
On Wednesday, May the 19th, 2021, students of our school participated in the Kahoot quiz with students from schools in Lithuania and Slovenia. The aim was to establish interaction between teachers and students, improve English language skills, and strengthen friendly relations between students and employees of our school and students from Slovenia and Lithuania. The activity was carried out within the Erasmus project Promoting the development of personal knowledge and creating a sustainable lifestyle.
On the occasion of Planet Earth Day, each student of our school made a small contribution to the health of the planet and all living creatures. We planted some plants, composted, cleaned the environment, collected secondary raw materials, sewed canvas bags from discarded materials and distributed them to citizens, and wrote and shared eco messages.
Our 3rd and 4th-grade students and their teachers made and exhibited their eco Christmas trees and decorations. They used materials for recycling which they gathered while selecting waste in their households. Their work has been promoted in our school hall and the ‘tickets’ for the exhibition are plastic bottle caps, as our support to the humanitarian activity Bottle Cap for Handicap.
Festivity time is coming. Our students traditionally make greeting cards for Christmas and New Year.
On the 7th of November, The European Day of Science, the students presented their work and exhibited their photos in our school hall. They also tried to animate other students to take part in sustainable activities: select garbage at school and at home, collect bottle caps for humanitarian purposes, etc.
Our librarian often organizes literary meetings where students read and discuss literature. This school year they dedicated several meetings to reading Slovenian and Lithuanian authors.
