Der „Dadaismus“ entstand Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts aufgrund der Geschehnisse im 1. Weltkrieg. Die unsinnigen und sinnlosen Texte der Dadaisten, ohne grammatisch logische Zusammenhänge, drücken aus, wie wenig man die absurde Wirklichkeit mit menschlichem Verstand oder mit Logik erklären könne. Von einigen Beispieltexten der Dadaisten inspiriert, hatten die Schülerinnen und Schüler der 1. und 2. Sekundarstufe viel Spass ebensolche Texte zu verfassen.
Our Kindergarten playground was enriched this week with this Tintin-like rocket painted on the floor. It’s not just a fun decoration – it will also help the children to practice counting numbers from 1 to 20 while they’re playing, and will additionally be used as a teaching tool by the teachers during their lessons.
On the hot days, the children played with water balloons and bubbles in the school’s outdoor space. This was a great way to cool off during the hot summer days and a fun activity for the children to enjoy. We also took walks to the “Spielplatz Weid” where there was a flowing stream and a wonderful playground where the kids could take advantage of the great weather. In the stream, the children could cool off a bit from the blazing heat as they would dip their feet in and have fun. Walks in the forest were also well enjoyed.
