Over the past two weeks the students have been hard at work completing their final project of Unit 2. Using the insight they have gained into the behaviours and uses of materials over the past 2 months, the students embarked on a collaborative building effort.
Hello everyone at Peace & Unity.
My name is Mr. Andreas Nielsen. I am 27 years old and I will be working at Magic Years International School for the next 6 months in Peace & Unity. I am an intern from Copenhagen, Denmark, where I am currently studying Social Education, a program which takes 3.5 years to finish. This internship will be my last out of 3 internships during my social education studies. I will graduate in January 2018. I am one of two interns from Denmark who have started at Magic Years this week and we both live together at The Lakeside Condo not far from the school. The other intern’s name is Nanna and she is in Joy & Confidence.
I previously worked for 6 years with children aged 1 to 3 and for 2 years as a substitute with children aged 1 to 6 back in Denmark before starting my social education study. I am here in Thailand at Magic Years to learn, and further develop new qualifications and skills that will be valuable to me in my current study in Denmark and my future work. I also wanted to experience a new culture different from the Danish, which I hope will develop me as a person as well. I will be at Magic Years from 8 to 14.30 everyday, so I hope to meet you all soon. I have already met most of your children who have made me feel very welcome and part of their community.
I hope to meet you all at the current campus or at the brand new campus in January. If any of you have any questions about me or my internship, you are very welcome to ask me.
All the best,
This week our class completed an experiment in the kitchen. As part of our inquiry into Changing Materials we decided to find out what happened when we put plastic cups and cup lids into a hot oven.
