Recently in the NMS Vege garden at P23 we had an expert come to visit and check on the progress of the garden, whilst also teaching the students valuable lessons about caring and harvesting the vegetables. So far it’s been quite successful as we have already harvested some radishes, strawberries and various salads. We hope to continue to grow the garden together and hopefully in the future the kids will also take some valuable life skills with them.

Our podcast team has finished with our first English media project!

Dear NMS community,

In Mrs. Adler’s English classes 7ABCD, we had a really fun project making podcast book reviews about books from our NMS library.  In class we selected for you the top three or four from each class (Daniel, Gnima, Laurin, Aidan, Lilli, Lindsay, Anna and Alyssa). Listen to our podcasts to hear sound effects, summaries, and stories. Learn about the themes, setting and characters in the stories and decide whether you would like to read this book yourself.

On the 3rd week of May 2018, three journalists came to 5B in Pfalzburgerstrasse 23 because we were learning how to write newspaper articles. They were Ms. Janelle Dumalaon from Deutsche Welle, Ms. Carolyn Malasig who writes online articles for Rappler and Forbes Company, and Mr. Derek Scally, a writer for The Irish Times. They talked about their jobs and gave us tips on how to be good writers and reporters. They also showed us some articles and videos of the work that they do. It was a very interesting week for us.

Das „Zeichnen mit Licht“ wurde zum Thema im Kunstunterricht der 8d in den letzten Wochen. Unterstützt durch die Fotogalerie Friedrichshain durften die Schüler*innen mit selbstgebauten Leuchtkästen experimentieren. Dabei standen selbstkomponierte Stilleben mit gefundenen Materialien vom Schulhof im Vordergrund. Zusätzlich gibt uns das nette Team der Fotogalerie Friedrichshain die Gelegenheit ausgewählte Fotos in einer Ausstellung in ihren Galerieräumen zu zeigen! Konkrete Infos dazu folgen in Kürze!
