How did we enjoy the Jizera Mountains?

Throughout the whole week children from Grades 4 and 5 fully enjoyed the beauty of the nature of the Jizera Mountains. The children were involved in various activities prepared for their classes - they explored the forest through their senses, or they tried Hucul horse riding, there were also a bee-themed trail and workshops such as felting (sheep wool products), farming, or discovering the microworld of water.

On Wednesday we set off for a daylong walk. We ended the day with building a campfire in the evening and also a sleepover awaited us in a stylish teepee.

Despite of many positive experiences we were looking forward to going home.


What does one day in School in Nature look like? Lower El. in Šumava

Today we woke up to the clouds setting on top of us. It was foggy as we started our hike to Pancíř for group one. Our journey was two kilometers to Horská chata Pancíř 1,214 meters above sea level. We enjoyed a leisurely hour and a half hike that included observations of the biomes and ecosystems on the mountain without a drop of rain. At our destination we climbed many stairs to the top of Pancir tower, where we only saw the clouds and our friends on the ground. On our way back, some of us took a small 5 minute trip to a spring which is the beginning the river Úhlava.   

Group two took a trip to Eco center in Železná Ruda, and interpretive center showing various animal, plant and geological formations in Šumava. Their hike was without rain also and they enjoyed the forest and the sounds of nature.

After lunch we played games, read books and did some art in Družina along with swim time. We also experienced some great thunderstorms with heavy downpours.

Tonight we will be dancing away at the Disco and enjoying watching our friends share their talents at the talent show.


How was our TALENT SHOW 2018?

We believe everyone has a hidden treasure. We help them to discover and make the most of their riches." This is one of our values, and we seek to uphold this value not only through our own approach, but also through our school events. Talent in all its forms can also be one of these treasures. Children were given an opportunity to show us their talents, diligence or just excitement about some kind of skill at the Talent Show. The show took place at our school on 3 May with the participation and great support of parents and friends. Children sang, danced, or played the piano, the flute or the guitar. The music resounded through the school, and the applause from the audience for every participant could hardly be missed on the afternoon of that day. Every child received a music pencil with a souvenir card for their courage.

We are already looking forward to next year’s event and we would very much like to thank the children for such an enjoyable afternoon!

April Became the Recycling Month in Duhovka

In April, we recycled! During art classes as well as regular instruction time, children made beautiful things out of recycled materials. They brought old newspapers, magazines, leftover fabric, old buttons, paper rolls, polystyrene trays, corks, small boxes, plastic bottles with caps etc. You can see a plastic whale in the picture – made by the children from Orange class.

Turquoise decided to organize a “clearance”, selling old items for a small amounts. This helped children understand that not everything that is old must be thrown away and whatever doesn’t bring them joy anymore can bring joy to others. They will donate the money collected to a shelter for abandoned animals. There was a lot of interest in the items on sale right from the beginning! Galery here


We celebrated Earth Day and we have new project - COMPOSTING

Composting has become an interesting long-term project of our school in which not only children but also employees of the school and some parents participate. We have recently supported recycling of bio-waste by organizing a training for school employees and consequently children as well. For this purpose, we have equipped the premises with special bins and our compost In the garden thus receives regular supplies. Thank you also to organisation Ekodomov, Kateřina Koubova.
During Earth Day celebrations on Friday, April 20th, parents participated in garden maintenance. One of the activities consisted in working with compost. During this, we made an interesting finding which will result in us having to treat our compost matter with great care. We found out that rare species, European rhinoceros beetle, made his home in our compost. This beetle is strictly protected on our territory because it belongs to endangered species. These beetles often take a liking to compost where the larvae take several years to develop.  Gallery here
We would like thanks to parents who accepted our invitation and came on Friday, April 20th to celebrate Earth Day with us and help us maintain and clean our garden.
