Workshops

Workshops are additional, free of charge activities for all our students from Years 0-5. They cover various topics that extend student knowledge and broaden their interests. They take place every Thursday from 3:10 pm to 3:55 pm. During this time no other activities take place.

WORKSHOPS

 

0AK – Artur Maciejewski – Musical excperiment

Little-year-olds discover the world not only during the preschool classes. It is also worth spending time with them at home to learn about new phenomena together and arouse cognitive curiosity in children.

During the music workshops, we will conduct simple experiments and rhythmic games that will surely interest every little explorer.

 

1CF – Kevin Marston – LEGO workshops

Dear Parents,

I would like to invite your kids for the LEGO workshop.

Lego workshops will involve themed projects and monthly challenges, sometimes to practice common KS1 topics, sometimes just for fun.

I would like the workshops to develop the creativity of your kids, and to help to build good teamwork in future.

 

1AM – Aleksandra Maliszewska – Coding workshops

I have a pleasure to invite you to the unique workshops which introduce children to the topic of coding, developing creativity and logical thinking as well as awaking interest.

Here are the sample tasks:

  • Coding by colouring – colouring the relevant fields to create a picture. Thanks to these tasks, children practice spatial orientation, logical thinking, the ability to associate and draw conclusions;
  • Symmetrical drawing – creating the same images (mirror image). It is an exercise that develops perceptiveness, concentration and eye-hand coordination;
  • BINGO – sticking coloured notes to create a picture.

 

2MP – Christina Daly – Gardening Art Workshop 

This workshop will provide kids a fun, hands-on way to learn about sustainable gardening and an opportunity to make gardening art projects. It should be a fun and creative time!

Terrariums: Kids learn how to create a tiny self-sustaining indoor garden called a terrarium. Students will enjoy this interesting and fun activity creating their own terrarium that they can keep and take home.

Planting: Simple activities like potting up seeds into cups and nurturing them as they germinate help build a love for nature.

Hydroponics Activity: The idea of growing plants in non-traditional ways like by using hydroponics techniques can really capture kids’ attention and get them excited about gardening.

Pottery: Students will have an opportunity to create and paint their own clay pottery.

Rock painting: This will be an artistic project with lots of rocks and paints.

Kitchen Scrap Gardening: With little effort and a pinch of creativity we will devise some very imaginative indoor gardens from your kitchen leftovers!

Plant People: Homemade “Chia” pets are the perfect activity to make because they are cute and silly.

 

2MF – Marie Fahrenholz – Outdoors: skipping rope when weather allows, indoors: drama 

My workshops will take place outside when the weather allows it (if it’s cold we will dress warm and still go outside). The children will learn to skip on the long skipping rope, and on individual skipping ropes (disinfected and kept in their lockers, not shared). If the weather is bad, we will create plays from stories we will read together, we will play role-play games and other situational games and drama activities.

 

3CD – Dariusz Szymaniak –Music and dance workshops 

Objectives:

  • Developing of psychomotor skills and motor skills (dancing / singing);
  • An opportunity to express yourself by presenting your musical tastes to your colleagues;
  • Getting to know the issue of trends and subcultures.

Classes are to be based on:

Learning about songs  / music tastes / subcultures that are interesting for children; developing a schedule for presenting / listening to them and then discussing the content presented in a given work / subculture with them.

4RA – Patrycja Kowalewska– Lyrical workshops

The topic of my workshops will be the meeting with literature and art. It is very important that various fields of art intertwine with each other. Thanks to this, children can create poetry, painting, drawing, collage in a sense of harmony and interdependence.

This school year, I suggest that the workshops are closely related to literature. I would like to put every topic within the framework of a poem, short story, prose fragments. The works will be accompanied by a literary text that can stimulate children to creativity. We – adults – should be given the opportunity to talk to the child about his/her vision of literature and art.

One work, one painting and endless possibilities of interpretation. I count on it and I wish you a lot of fun during the “Lyrical Meetings”.

 

4KM – Monika Pękul – Workshops for the future journalists

Main goals:

  • Acquainting pupils with the main riddles and problems of contemporary journalism;
  • Mastering the basics of journalistic art and its practical use in creating short press forms;
  • Learning to search for information;
  • Improving language skills and caring for the culture of the word;
  • Getting to know the works of outstanding journalists;
  • Awakening creativity and self-esteem.

 

5MJ – Aleksandra Przybyszewska -”The Gift of Bilingualism”

The workshops that will be conducted by me in grade 5MJ will be about “the Gift of Bilingualism”. This topic is very close to me, because I myself I have been a bilingual person since I was a child. The classes will be aimed at introducing the issue of bilingualism. The history of the concept will also be presented. During the workshop, children will be able to find out what degree of bilingualism they have, what are the characteristics of bilinguals and how the brain of a bilingual person functions daily. I hope that it will also be an opportunity to share experiences and observations on functioning in both languages at the same time. And who knows… maybe three or more!

I would like the workshops to motivate students to learn other languages because it is a great skill, and for bilingual people learning another language is much easier!

The children will also return home with a “user manual” for taking care of their bilingualism.

 

5AW – Rana Al-Hamdani – Arabic for beginners

In this workshops young learners begin by learning the alphabet, and then learn to speak Arabic through situations that relate. This is done by giving them stories and interesting puzzles that revolve around important topics such as: jobs, colours, numbers, food, outings, etc.
