Ancient Rome

VBS4 loved learning all about Ancient Rome! Students worked in groups to research a topic and design their own models of Roman life. Afterwards, students showed off their knowledge by presenting their dioramas to the class. It was a treat to use recycled materials to create something fun and informative. VBS4's creativity and hard work truly shone through in their designs, as you can see below. Take a look!

The Human Body: VBS4's Day at the Traveling Zoom Museum

Last week, VBS4 went to the traveling Zoom Museum. The Zoom Museum is a museum where students learn about different topics, and our topic was the human body. We saw many interesting parts of the human body, and we learned what they do. It was amazing!

We found out about many different body parts. First, we opened up a puppet that had stuffed versions of real body parts. VBS4 could guess which organs they had and correctly place them in the puppet. It looked a little gross, but we had fun anyway.

We also had fun in different stations! One station allowed us to build a skeleton out of plastic. It was quite tricky, because the individual pieces looked quite similar. We figured it out in the end, and they looked like they were dancing and jumping around. At another station, we could colour the inner workings of the body. At the third and final station, we put on special jackets, and we had to stick models of body parts onto the jackets.

It was lovely to have this experience with VBS4! Learning about body parts was very exciting, and we had a lot of fun!

VBS3's Insect Hotels

After learning about insects and their importance for our ecosystem, VBS3 built two insect hotels for our school. This project was made possible with the help of enthusiastic parent volunteers, and we could not be more excited about the results. We cannot wait to see which insects come to stay this winter!

 

Ringstraßenvernissage by VBS4

On November 5, 2019 the Ringstraßenvernissage by VBS 4 took place in the OVS Schüttaustrasse.

On display were seven Ringstraßen-buildings, which were handcrafted by the pupils of VBS 4.

On the occasion of the open-door day, interested parents could visit the successful exhibition.

 
 

Houses Around the World Presentations

Today, VBS1 met in Zoom to present our 'Houses Around the World' projects.

 

As we couldn't do it at school, we met online to explain our posters and presentations to our classmates. It was so great to see each other after not being at school for so long, even if it was 'virtual'.

 

We have been learning about houses at school, and because we come from all over the world, we wanted to share information about what houses are like in the countries where our families are from. We looked at architectural and design features, building materials and how dwellings are adapted to suit the climate. You can see some of our wonderful posters here.

Letters to and from the Mayor of Vienna

VBS2 brainstormed what could make our city even better and wrote letters to Mayor Ludwig with our requests. We were so excited to read his response! Take a look at our ideas and his thoughtful answer below.
