Notes of an International School IB Educator - International School of Tallinn In many ways the life of an educator is a journey down the winding path of life that is not so unlike anyone else’s, however, once an opportunity presents itself to enter the global international school circuit everything changes.

PYP EXHIBITION 2021

This morning we will share the last remaining project presented in the PYP Exhibition 2021.

This time we have a group of students: Luisa, Ademi and Sofiya chose to research paranormal stories. They learned all about the scary tales of Tallinn and made a video in Old Town retelling the story of Tallinn's famous black monk.

They also conducted an experiment with their classmates to measure heartbeats in different scary situations.

Spooky... and very interesting! Nice work, girls!

Our second PYP X project today comes from David. With the help of his mentor, David created a 3D animation to explore what is happening in the world and people's reactions. He also explored editing with music and sound effects.

His very creative and well executed work can be seen in the video below.

What a great animation, David! We are very proud of you.

This morning we present to you Danila's Fortnite project. Danila explained technical aspects of the game, like "first person" and "third person" perspectives, analyzed how different strategies can help you, and made a connection with his real life experience in Taekwondo.

This was an interesting way to connect video games and real life learning. Great job, Danila!

PYP EXHIBITION 2021

The second project we want to share with you today belongs to Grade 5 student Aleksandr.

As the new IST building is currently being designed, Aleksandr had the idea to recreate the new building using Minecraft. He researched the new school using the rendered images available on our website and constructed the outside of the building to perfection.

Not only that; he explored his creativity to design the inside of the building, creating classrooms and common areas that will inspire the architects to see the new school from a different angle.

Great job, Aleksandr!

PYP EXHIBITION 2021

We are proud to share with our school community that, last week, Grade 5 held our first PYP Exhibition online. The PYP X is a very important milestone: it marks the culmination of a student's journey in PYP with the development of a project. Our Grade 5 students worked on diverse and exciting projects for several weeks, mentored by IST staff and other professionals. The results of their research were presented last Thursday in several online sessions throughout the day.

We were also happy to see Grade 4 drop by and watch the presentations in preparation for their own PYP X, coming next year.

Over the next few days, we will be sharing each student's work here.

Today we start with ISABEL:

She is a skilled horseback rider and decided to do a project on "How horses can affect people's mood". Isabel's project included instructions and videos showing horseback riding, as well as measuring how people's moods increase when in contact with horses.

We congratulate Isabel for her wonderful presentation and very interesting project!

Our Story

The International School of Tallinn is a new school located in Ülemiste City, Tallinn.

We opened our doors in autumn 2017.

Ülemiste City, a fast-developing smart city in every sense of the word, is attracting people from many parts of Europe and beyond who sees Estonia as a hub of opportunity. This is one of the reasons why the owners of the International School of Tallinn decided to establish an international school in the Ülemiste City District where one can also find a local kindergarten (Kalli-Kalli), a private Estonian school (Emili School) and the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences.

The International School of Tallinn (IST) offers international education in English from Grade 1 to Grade 8 and now also Preschool for 4 to 6-year-old students. The school´s language of instruction is English while Russian, German, Estonian or French is chosen as an additional language.

IST is an IB Candidate School for PYP (Primary Years Programme). We will introduce Grades nine and ten during the 2019/2020 school year and grades eleven and twelve the following year.

At the International School of Tallinn we believe that every little person must have the opportunity to feel valuable and brilliant so we support this through our activities and care.

We are open for new applications throughout the year!
