🎉And the international spelling competition Word Mania continues!🎉 Our grade 9 students have become one of the 10 global finalists in their year level! Good luck in the final round!

Congratulations to all our 🇱🇻️Latvian🇱🇻 friends!

🔬Have you ever wondered what a pice of moss or a scar on your skin looks like under a microscope?🔬

Grades 4, 5 and 6 visited Tartu Nature House to find that out.

✨How well do you spell? Our grade 6 students spell really well, for sure! They achieved excellent results in international Word Mania spelling game competition round one! Good luck to them in round two! ✨

✨Mardisandid, mardisandid!✨

Don't be scared, if you get a knock on your door today and are greeted by a song which goes: "Laske sisse mardisandid, marti-marti!"

Tomorrow is mardipäev or Martinmas in Estonian folk calendar and today is mardilaupäev or Martinmas' Eve. This means that children disguise themselves and go from door to door, singing and telling riddles.

Let them in and treat them with apples, candies and other sweets, because in the olden days it was believed that letting them in brings good luck for the next year!

This autumn Tartu City Government is funding our project "Nature-related activities in the free-time club". Thanks to that, our grade 1-3 students have already:
🍁picked some apples at the Eco-Center at the Estonian University of Life Sciences;
🍁visited the botanical gardens;
🍁taken part in a Tartu Nature House workshop about pets;
🍁learnt about urban nature with the help of University of Tartu Natural History Museum.

There is still plenty of fun and exciting activities to come! The students are going to:
🍁do bird watching around the school house;
🍁visit Tartu Observatory to learn about our solar system;
🍁build a feeding house for the birds with the help of SPARK Makerlab;
🍁go to the University of Tartu Natural History Museum to get to know more about marine wildlife in the Baltic Sea.
