The corona virus may force us to stay at home but H4U is unstoppable! This has just given our project a new dimension! Here we upload ideas how to deal with this pandemic. There´s a lot you can do right now for your physical, social and mental health!
The new hygiene measures required by Covid-19 have motivated our school to redesign the schoolyard. Classroom lessons are still a risk due to aerosols. So the pandemic has motivated students and staff in St. Veit to think about new teaching locations. The schoolyard is big enough for both working places and places to spend our breaks. But until 2020 it wasn´t really inviting and well equipped. Class 3bhw has made it their special project to change that! From now on, outdoor meetings and lessons are possible. As part of their UDLM subject students to ask their peers what they would like to see in the new schoolyard. Most of the wishes have already been fulfilled.
Tables and benches have been purchased as well as sun shades. And we are far from being finished...
Wearing a helmet often is not considered to be cool or necessary. So, how do we get our students to protect their heads? We give a good example! The picture/poster campaign was open until end of November! See our collection of pictures and posters, motivating people to "Wear a Helmet" - cycling, down-hill skiing, skate-boarding, white water canoeing, horse back riding or whatever sport! The proud winners of the foto challenge are: Helimi Jauhiainen, Daniela Wieser and Angelika Hebenstreit.
How about breakfast in Dublin, Helsinki or Lisbon? Seems impossible in times of Covid-19, but really is no problem at HLW St. Veit! The Erasmus Days inspired our classes to learn more about the European country they had drawn. Greek dances and the history of Estonia, Danish sweets and Romanian family connections - there was a lot to learn and discover! Thanks so much to Mikko for the Skype conference with our 3rd Graders! We learned a lot about Finland. If we can´t travel Europe we will invite Europe to our school!

H4U project budget made it possible to buy a DinoLite digital microscope and 15 phonescopes for science classes at HLW St. Veit. Cell phone microscopes easily allow taking pictures of plants and animals on field trips, without further equipment or light source necessary. Health related topics can be taught in a very practice-oriented way.
DinoLite pictures can be shown to the whole class via the projector which enables us to look at one cell sample together at the same time. Even the size of the photo on the computer screen seems even more impressive to the students which increases their interest in scientific topics.
