DISTANZ-UNTERRICHT

Berlins Schülerinnen und Schüler lernen wieder online. Unsere Schule ist mit der G-Suite-Enterprise-Lizenz bestens ausgestattet. Die Daten bleiben in der EU, alle Schülerkonten sind pseudonymisiert und werden von der Schule verwaltet. Die Lernplattform Classroom und das Videokonferenztool Meet werden entsprechend unserer Datenschutzrichtlinien aus dem Jahre 2018 eingesetzt. Unsere Lehrkräfte werden in jedem Monat professionell weitergebildet. Das Online-Handbuch vom Juni 2020 enthält viele Tipps und Hinweise zum Online-Lernen. Da dieses Handbuch recht umfangreich ist, haben wir hier einige wichtige FAQs für Lehrkräfte, Schülerinnen und Schülern und ihre Eltern zusammengefasst.

A musical offering from Primary Choir volunteers in year 5 & 6. Huge thanks for amazing advice and technical help from the multi-talented Julia Naji.

We present in a cappella: 'Silent Night;' 'Mary's Boy Child;'  'We Wish You a Merry Christmas.'

As we have spontaneously recorded the Libertango by Astor Piazolla on the last day of school, which means the day before yesterday (Tuesday 15 the December), we would like to share this with the NMS community.

Stayathomechoir

Video #StayathomeChoir: Memories (Maroon 5) - Cover Dezember 2020 - YouTube

The love of music connects us even in these difficult times. Together with over 140 students from the Nelson-Mandela-Schule Berlin, the Max-Steenbeck-Gymnasium Cottbus and various choirs and orchestras from Germany, Sweden, Austria, the USA and the world, we recorded a large choir video at the end of 2020. We are happy that music-making and singing together can take place even in such difficult times, but we are also looking forward to singing and making music in school again. The project was carried out by Felix Theuner, who is currently teaching as a practical semester student at the Nelson Mandela School in Berlin.

Hört ihr, wie´s knallt und zischt? The children of class Flex A performed the traditional German poem "Der Bratapfel" as a recording for their parents. It is a famous German poem, known and recited by kids all over Germany. Find out, maybe even your parents know the poem if they grew up in Germany?

The children were very excited to make this recording, especially as we had to make sure that all the Corona safety requirements for everyone, such as singing with masks, washing hands before and after, disinfecting instruments and keeping enough distance while singing, were met. In the end, it all worked out well and the kids performed wonderfully.

Don´t be surprised if after listening to this, you feel you really would like to enjoy a mouthwatering and delicious Bratapfel?

Enjoy Flex A´s "Der Bratapfel".

Am 10.11.2020 morgens um 8:00 trafen sich die Schüler der Klasse 7b  im Klassenzimmer, um Kunstprojekt durchzuführen.

 Sie waren aufgeregt und freuten sich auf das Bemalen der Wand. Zuerst wurde die Klasse in 6 Gruppen aufgeteilt. An diesem Tag fand kein normaler Unterricht statt, weil es ein Projekttag war. Jede Gruppe war der Reihe nach mit dem Bemalen dran. Sie malten 60 Minuten lang Töne als abstrakte Formen an die Wand.
