Under the expert leadership of NMS teacher Viola Weikert, students from NMS Primary’s Tanz AG participated in the Berlin-wide “Tanz in der Schule” event on June 13.

Over twenty schools from Berlin and Brandenburg took part in the dance recital at Sporthalle Schöneberg. Students performed a total of 26 dances of many different styles from around the world, ranging from traditional folk dances to modern interpretations of pop songs such as Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You”.

Mit einem herausragenden (fast unglaublichen) Erfolg für unsere Schülerinnen und Schüler endete der diesjährige Wilmersdorfer Staffeltag
am 2. Mai im Stadion Wilmersdorf über je 6 x 400 m. Insgesamt fanden 5 Staffelrennen in unterschiedlichen Altersklassen statt. Unsere Teams gewannen 3 x Platz 1, 1 x Platz 2 und dazu einen 5. Platz. Damit gelang nach 2016, 2017 auch mit 2018 der 3. Gesamtsieg in Folge und der endgültige Gewinn des Wanderpokals für unsere Schule. Nun werden noch die Namen all unserer Teilnehmer*innen auf dem Pokal eingraviert.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch allen unseren erfolgreichen Teilnehmer*innen!

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.

Yesterday, on Thursday, 9e of B24 went to the Clever@TU-Berlin Lab. As we at the B24 don´t have a lab, we were very excited to see what it is like to be in a real science Lab.  We met up at 9 am at the Technical University and were welcomed by Dr. Merkel, the Head of the Lab and the inventor of the project “chemistry-experiments for secondary school students in an academical lab environment at the TU Berlin”. Even though some where late ; ), we managed to get into the lab by 9.10 am. Then an assistant of Dr. Merkel, Julia, handed us lab coats and safety goggles....

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.
