Visiting artists…

Before we had our spring break, we had a visit from our artists. The students had been very much looking forward to this visit. Louise and Christian, our artists, were ready to inspire us to create a greater connection to nature. The students were divided into two teams. One team went with Christian out into the natural surroundings; here they had to do different exercises. Before the trip with Christian ended, they had all found at thing of natural origin which will be following them throughout the project.

At Louise’s the students were asked to express themselves through dance and music with nature in mind. The teams swapped, so both teams had been with Louise and Christian. We all ended the day together practicing the choreography of the dance – it was really good. The students have got homework to do. They have to write a story about their natural object from the surroundings. They have to make it into a live figure. They also have to make a drawing of their object.

We look forward to continue working with Louise and Christian. They will come and visit us again next week for three days.

Rubbish

Rubbish

Last week we went out to take a look outdoors. We had to look for things we didn´t like. Our focus was pollution.
It is unbelievable how much rubbish we throw away. We have to do better.

In science we decided to make an effort to change this.
We went out taking photos and search for information about what rubbish does to nature.

We want our school to make an effort – each and everyone. Our pupils’ council have decided to make a “Rubbish day”.
In science we talked about wanting to be better at taking care of nature. We will treat nature like we want to be treated.

 

Our headline is: “Nature is hot, rubbish is not”.
We make campaigns, slogans, a rap and pamphlets.

At the moment we are working with at story called “Wild Bill”. It´s about a boy called Bill. He has a fantasy about being an American footballplayer like his father. One day Bill borrows his fathers gear, and he imagines he is playing  the match of his life.

On the photos above we draw and write about our fantasy.
