As the school is reaching the end of the year, the teachers have organized "special activity days" for the children. Mixing pedagogical goals and informal activities, the children got great opportunities to interact with other grades and learn at the same time.
During one of those days, the pupils from 2nd to 5th grade focused on practicing English. Stage plays, power-point presentations, short films and table games: all the children from 3rd to 5th grade prepared something in English to share with the others. One of the purposes is to introduce the youngest children in an entertaining and playful way to the study of the English language. Two other days focused on Hebrew and Arabic.
Later in June, an entire day was dedicated to a series of lessons all around the topic of health, from healthy nutrition to reflexology. The children from 1st to 5th grade moved from one station to another to meet with experts in the broad field of body and soul wellness. They learned about general medicine, dental hygiene, science of nutrition, veterinary medicine, reflexology and yoga. All the lessons were held in a very entertaining and amusing style, in order to stimulate the participation of all children.
