MYP 2 students are currently researching and analysing different instruments and their repertoire with their music teacher, Ms Aniva. Today, we had the pleasure of having Mr Guido (our ISE Caretaker) play music using a "saw". He was able to share his love of music and illustrated the idea that music could be played with any kind of instrument including unusual ones, that can be expressed in different ways.
We would like to thank Mr Guido for sharing his music with us! Aitäh, Mr Guido!

Another inquiry-based STEAM learning experience for PYP3 students where we invited a professional spray painting artist and the students created a painting that looked like a photograph! Students wrote a reflection and researched facts for the unit, How the World Works.

👍Officials from the Estonian State Education and Youth Board, (Haridus- ja Noorteamet)visited ISE today to learn about our experiences and practices implementing a wide variety of learning resources to support a learner's curiosity and interest. ISE is a textbook free school. How we utilize both on and offline learning resources was a talking point of the meeting. During the visit to various classrooms, guests encountered a guest speaker presentation, a book reading session, as well as online group research.

The International School of Estonia has been celebrating the European Day of Languages for the last four years. At the Council of Europe’s initiative, the European Day of Languages has been celebrated every year since 2001 on 26 September - together with the European Commission.
This year the language learning students have been actively participating in the various activities planned by Ms Maren and Mr Valerian. The students created the language and culture portraits to celebrate home and family languages. Also, our students designed posters, played interactive quizzes and conducted surveys about the diversity of languages at ISE.

Ms. Ujjala in PYP3 always starts a unit with a provocation to hook the attention of our students. Students were asked to draw their impression of the universe. It was accompanied with True/False statements pre-assessments which showed their current knowledge.👍

The International School of Estonia celebrates Home and Family Language Days in English Language learning classes. The English Language Learning (ELL) Teacher Mr. Valerian has planned interactive activities for the English Language Learning students to celebrate, promote home and family language, linguistic diversity, multilingualism, and raise awareness of the European Day of Languages. The activities start on the 21st of September and will last until the 27th of September during English Language Learning classes. The ELL students engage in interactive activities to share their home and family language experiences with each other. This helps students to overcome language barriers and express viewpoints in home and family language. Students collaborate and engage in conversations about language for learning as they move along the continuum of language development. The activities advocate for language learners to have equitable access to new languages.

PYP3 went on a field trip to the Health Museum as they are studying about the human body and the interconnected systems. Students had an interactive session with a guide where they explored different body systems. Trying electronic exhibits was a lot of fun for everyone.

👍New Teacher Feature - Sandra Soomann, PYP Co-Teacher.
Sandra is from Tallinn, Estonia. She has a BA in Education (Special Education) with a minor in Psychology from the University of Tartu and is pursuing an MA in Special Education. She has previously worked as a kindergarten teacher and as a nature education specialist conducting hobby classes and school programs, so she has a lot of experience with children from different age groups and backgrounds. Sandra is a firm believer of inclusive and inquiry-based teaching, so ISE seems the perfect place.
In her free time, she enjoys learning new things (last year it was candle making and needle felting), discovering new places, spending time in nature or just lounging at home with her two rabbits.

👍We’re Back!
Welcome, or if your family is continuing in our community, welcome back. After much time preparing, it has been wonderful to see and hear our building filled with students this week. We thank all our families who have trusted us with the education of their child/ren and look forward to working in partnership with you to give them the best education we can.

📌MYP & DP Camp.
This week I had the opportunity to attend Part 1 of the MYP & DP camp at Varemurru. A late summer school camp may conjure up a picture of lazy days by the sea with teachers and students taking the opportunity to brush up on their already fading suntan. But this is the Baltics! Our camp, while wonderful, was far from this idyllic picture,-it rained quite a lot. It was, however, a great opportunity to build year level relationships and prepare students for the academic year ahead. I was impressed by the organization and sheer hard work of all the ISE staff who attended and the commitment that the students showed to both the academic and not so academic pursuits. (Probably best to not mention the students who went swimming in horizontal rain when it was about 8 degrees) Part 2 of the camp continued on the ISE Campus and around Tallinn during Thursday and Friday.

📌In Case You Missed It.
Starting 26 August, a mask must be worn in public indoor areas where COVID certificates are not checked. In addition, in public areas where infection safety must be proved, all customers or participants, regardless of the number of people, must present a COVID certificate. More information: https://www.kriis.ee/en
On the ISE Campus, in keeping with Ministry guidelines, masks are very strongly recommended. We will also continue with weekly Rapid Antigen Testing of students and staff. Visitors to our campus may be asked for evidence of vaccination, recovery or a recent negative test.

📌Just a reminder
The area just outside the school on Staadioni Street is a no stopping area. This means you are not allowed to wait there to pick up your children. Out of respect for our neighbours and the safety of our children, we would encourage you to find solutions for picking up and dropping off your child/ren, that don’t include using this no stopping area.


Enjoy your weekend, stay safe.

Choosing an International School

Making a decision what school to enroll your child in is one of the most important decisions you will make. At International School of Estonia we think it is important to make sure that you are clear about what schools offer before you make your decision.

So how do you know you are making the right choice for your children?

The starting place is to visit the school and meet the people who work there; talk to them about the expectations you have for your children; and ask lots of questions about the school's core values and pedagogy of learning.

Some questions you might like to ask.
