Holidays in the UK in March.

While being in England in March I found myself in the centre of three important holidays for British people. First of all, on 13 March the British celebrated RED NOSE DAY. The aim of this day is to raise money for people in need. All children in schools wore red noses.
Secondly, I could celebrate MOTHER`S DAY on 15 March.
And finally I could see people in London celebrating ST PATRICK`S DAY (which is actually an Irish holiday) with marching in  parades of green.

Greetings from London, England.

The British people celebrate Mother's Day today, on Sunday 15 March. The whole London is celebrating with nice flowers and small presents. Shops are nicely decorated and parks are full of happy families.

Student exchange.

On the 11th of March our 6th graders changed places with the 6th graders of Palupera school. There were 7 of us in total, while 7 stayed at school. We went to Palupera  without any teachers from our school, so it was a bit scary.
From this trip I learned that people sometimes treat new people with curiousity and that  can be quite confusing being in unknown places with unknown people.
There were no problems in the lessons, even though some students went a little bit too playful.
I liked the fact that  experience was fresh with new teachers. It's good because you can get bored of the ordinary lessons fast.
I didn't like that when we had our first lessons, the 4th and 5th graders opened the door and looked in. It was quite uncomfortable. The rest of the day was all good and nice.
At first I was  scared by the unknown house and people, especially because it was a manor school and the halls were really tight and small. I was also afraid that I'll get lost, what could really happen, beacause inner of the school was  like a maze.  
The 5th graders really should take part of it  next year! The experience was cool and awesome, doesn't matter if you are at a different school with different teachers or at your school with different students.


I’ll write about our English lesson in Palupera basic school.
At first the 9th grade student talked about their parish, manor and school. It was quite interesting. I understood everything. Then we watched a cartoon “Goldilocks and the three bears”. It was a little bit different from the fairy tale. We had to watch it carefully to say if the sentences about the cartoon were true or false. All of us said right answers. We had some time left before the end of the lesson so we  played a computer game named “Wordbird”. We studied nouns in that game. Then the lesson was over. Some of us thought it was easy. Now I can say how was the English lesson in Palupera basic school.
I liked this day.

German journalist visiting our school.

On 25 February our school was visited by a German journalist. His name is Karsten and he is 24 years old. He collects  some material for  German children radio shows. These shows reflect  children's life in different countries. He saw some interesting data about our school in Estonia and so he decided to visit us in Konguta school.
Karsten interviewed  some of our students. He was interested in digital learning days, homework and everyday computer using. He also took part in  year 3 students` programming lesson. In robotics class he saw some works of the boys and girls in the classroom and talked to robotics teacher Tõnis.  He recorded meetings with some students from different classes. I talked to him too, and he was really interested in the fact that I had tried coding a website once and he also asked me will coding be an important thing to know in the future. I thought it would be really important.

The journalist was happy with the meeting, because he got a lot of useful information. Friendly and cool Karsten was also liked by our students.
