work on "Stop Climate Changes"Posted by Birgit Dünow Mon, May 29, 2017 13:01:26 Visiting the Center of Future Mobility in Dresden
Students learn a lot about technology and environment
at school from teachers and schoolbooks. How does all that work in reality and
what does it cost? That is important. At the age of 14 or 15 it is also
important to get ready for future life. That means choosing a job training and decide for a place to live.
We have learned a lot about mobility. How can we get to work one day and what
does that cost. How can we get from one place to another. Some of us will live
far away from friends and family so the question is very important.
So we - class 9a - decided to visit the Center of future Mobility
in Dresden. We went on a class trip, so we didn’t need extra money for
We could learn a lot about modern car technologies.
The interactive models were a lot of fun. We could touch and experience car
models. One example is the full size glass frame model of the e-Golf. Now we
know that car technology has a short history and the next step is not too far.
Some of us will work in car industry one day.
The main thing we realized is that you don’t need to
compromise between enjoying driving and environment when you decide for an

A nice environment also helps to feel good and
have fun to work in a team
Workshop on 3rd May 2017
6graders made an interesting class trip to the south west of Mecklenbourg. They
spent most of the time outside and made different workshops. On one day they
especially worked to the project: “Stop climate change”. Their idea was to
build a wooden raft. In preparation to the project they were informed about
different kinds of wood and other materials which can be used from our nature.
Then the students formed groups and made construction plans. The instructor
gave some help to get the rafts swimming. Then after some hours hard work the
time came to try the rafts in the lake. The students were very excited.
Although the water was still very cold, all students wanted to test their raft
and climbed on it. Look into all the happy faces! It worked! What a nice
example for living in a healthy nature.

First day - Saturday, 6th May
The weather is very nice for the ferry trip from Rostock to Gedser. We join the bus that is coming from Kleipeda. All the students from there and the Polish students look very tired, many of them were on the road for nearly 20 hours. We are very excited about what will happen in Nykobing. Our first impression of Marieskolen - a very modern and big school building! You can get lost here. We prepare everything for a night in classrooms. Then we meet all the other participants. It is very nice and we soon start to talk talk to each other.Second day - Sunday, 5th May
A sunny day, we have a wonderful breakfast at school. We meet in a circle and get to know each other, say how we feel, our names and where we come from. Then we go for a walk in Nykobing. The food at lunch is great again, we are a bit jealous because the Danish students can have that every day. Soon we start working in project groups with Booma, Daniela and Boris. It is great fun. We all try to give our best from the beginning. Time goes by very fast.
In the evening we have an intercultural evening. Every country presents something nice like a song or dance. But the best are the food tasters, we walk from table to table and enjoy the sweets, cakes and cheese and talk a lot.Third day - Monday, 8th May
We take our luggage out of the rooms, something we have to do every day-it is a school!
It's Philip's birthday. His dance course sings an extra song for him. Then we work hard to get ready for the performances on Wednesday.
In the evening we go on working on our ideas against climate change. Photo number five shows the winners.Fourth day - Tuesday, 9th May
We get ready very fast in the morning, have those fresh made rolls which we like so much and it is easy not to have our daily cornflakes.
Some games in the circle and we hurried to the project rooms. We get better and better. Some paintings have to be finished in the art project. Some steps have to be added in the dance project. Some changes have to be practised in the music project. And how can we combine all the results to a nice performance and show the audiance our ideas for a work against climate change?
The rehearsal in the ecening is perfect-is it a good sign for tomorrow?The last day - Wednesday, 10th May
A rainy day. That doesn't matter to us. At 9 we get on the bus to Vaeggerloese for the first performance at school there. It is a short trip. We are not too excited. We perform our program in a very nice and old gym, the audience is wonderful and gives lots of applause. We get freshmade buns and a drink as a treat and enjoy everything after the performance. The next performance at Sophieskolen is a lot of fun too. Time goes by too fast now. We have some freetime before we meet for the closing circle. It is still raining, pity, because we would like to go into town for a while with our new friends. Talking in English is easy now.
We get our certificates and say good bye to the Danish group. After the bus trip to Gedser and a nice ferry trip to Rostock we have to say good bye to all the other friends which is not so easy.
We would like to visit them or work in a project again as soon as possible. Good bye friends and see you soon

We collected lots of ideas about what we personally can do against climate change. One of them was: bye presents in Nykobing's wonderful second hand shops.🇩🇰

Fantastic playgrounds at school

Sophieskolen is a very nice host. About 50 young people are working in different workshops and there will be performances in two different places tomorrow. Sophieskolen is one of them of course.
Thank you to the staff here, especially to Lydia and to all the nice people in the kitchen who prepared the delicious meals for us.
