It's not every day that classes take place in an embassy 😁👩‍🏫

With the 🇱🇻 Latvian Day of Independence 🇱🇻 coming up this week, our Latvian students had the chance to visit the Embassy of Latvia in Estonia yesterday.

With their teacher Diana, they learned how important it is to build relationships between countries, 💡 and also how close and related 🇪🇪 Estonia and 🇱🇻 Latvia are.
Our students had the chance to see the embassy building and were lucky to meet the Latvian Ambassador to Estonia, Raimonds Jansons. 🤝
Is there a better way to prepare for Independence Day? 🤓

❤️ Today is Father's Day! 👨‍👦🙌

Our kindergarten families already celebrated 🎉 earlier this week:

They met up for some fun activities, like going on a quest 🕵️‍♀️ to find reflectors on our school grounds with headlights 🏡🔦.

Everyone was expecially excited about the sports competition that the little kids and their parents took on in teams! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ And afterwards, the fathers received self-made cards from their proud children. 😊🎁

👋 Fathers of the TIS community and elsewhere:
💪Today is your day! 🙏

❤️❤️ Happy Father's Day! 🤗

Our kindergarten children saw a theater play today! 😮

In "The key", the children followed the adventure of 5-year old girl Säde. 🗝️ They listened closely to what happened on the stage 🎵 that our hall had suddenly become...
From the smile on their faces, they quite enjoyed the play! ☺️

Thank you to 🎭 Miksteater🎭 for visiting us and adding excitement, even more curiosity and smiles to our day! 👐

This play is funded by the Estonian Ministry of Culture (Kultuuriministeerium) and is free to all kindergartens in Estonia.

👀 "Oh look, a squirrel in our lesson!" 🐿️

Outdoor lessons play an important role at our school - and for today's 🌐 International Outdoor Classroom Day 🏕️, most students spent the day outside. Not only Grade 3 discovered wildlife during their Estonian lesson... 🔍

🕷️ Grade 1/2 learned about all the spiders that call the school grounds their home

🌳 Grade 4 worked on their project called “Future Green Cities” in Toomemägi park

📜 Grade 6 played a game to learn about Egyptian gods in history outdoor class

🗲 Grade 9 learned about the nervous system and reflexes. (After testing their own reaction time, our oldest students can proudly say it falls between 0.17...0.23 seconds. Not bad! 🤓)

Being part of the Schools in Movement network🏃‍♀️, we believe that active inquiry-based learning outside is the best way to learn!

👻 A spooky day at school! 🕷️🕸️

As is the tradition to celebrate Halloween🎃🕯️, the students and teachers came dressed up in costumes today. 🧙 Some were scary, some were spectacular, but all made the school day so much more interesting! 🪄🦇

Tomorrow will also be an exciting day: our teacher Maarika will announce the winners 🏆 of today's Creature Hunt 🐉, for the challenge to guess how many candies there are in the jar🍬, and for the competition for best costume! ✨

Today is the first day of autumn break 🍁- but our school's hall is filled with children and true scientific spirit! 📐🧪🎓

For the beginning of the student camp 🚀 Rocket 69 🚀 - organized in cooperation with AHAA Science Center- the participants are going through 3 challenges.
They will need clever ideas, 💡 teamwork skills 👐 and the joy to solve a problem in order to master all of them. 🕵️It is amazing to have three days of excitement and learning in our schoolhouse!

Wishing everybody else good holidays!

Today's 👩‍🏫 Teachers Day ✨ was truly special!

Some of our older students were teachers for one day, teaching the younger ones for one lesson. 💪 Shout out to our brave and creative students! 🎨

🍁Autumn Sports Day!🍁

Today our school had its annual Autumn Sports Day! 🏃🏀 TIS really shines when it comes to our students working together and supporting each other. 💕

Thank you 🌻Grade 5🌻 for organizing such a fun sporty morning!

A week ago our 🏵Kindergarten🏵 had just as much fun on their own Sports Day! 🏃🍂🏑 It was great to see so many parents join their little ones for an active event on a chilly Autumn evening. 🍁

Thank you to our PE teacher Hasso for taking the lead on both events! 💚
