Experience - We investigate the properties of magnets.
During the science lesson, the sixth class explored the properties of magnets and their interactions, as well as the effects on various objects. They worked with the magnets, the horseshoes, and the ones they brought for the lesson. They learned the construction of the magnet and its practical use in everyday life.
The students showed great commitment and diligence.

to the forest of Autumn Lady
Taking advantage of the arrival of the Polish Golden Autumn, we went on a short trip to the nearby forest. We admired the unusual colours, in which leaves changed the colour, listened to the sounds of the forest and breathed full breast. Pupils from the second class have proved that they are well aware about nature protection, knowing that they should take care of nature, and that in the forest they must not leave trash, burn fires, scare the animals or make noise. This was another good opportunity to raise the interest in nature, to enrich knowledge and to shape environmental attitudes. We explored nature by looking, listening and touching. Divided into small groups, the children looked for the things I asked, so "something red", "something hard" "something soft", "something green". The students showed remarkable observation and creativity bringing treasures of the forest.

Together we can do more- volunteering and
The School Volunteer Club from the Konopnicka Primary School in Janowice altogether with students from the Silesian School Complex in Czechowice-Dziedzice took part in an action, Mrs Katarzyna Jordanek had donated the material for ecological bags. The action is also a result of a joint operation of the club with the wheel of nature, because the sewing material bags is an element of action: "STOP foil disposable earrings!". Material bags are meant to replace foil disposable and commercial bags and thus protect our planet from unnecessary waste.
The next step in our efforts will be to encourageto the purchase of the bags. Some volunteers will be able to decorate them according to their own ideas. We hope to convince citizens of Bestwina and surrounding areas that our bags are great for pre-Christmas shopping or even for a gift.
The money gathered will be donated to charity.
We are very grateful to Mrs Katarzyna Jordanek, who volunteered by herself to give us materials and students from the Silesian School Complex in Czechowice-Dziedzice, who agreed to sew the bags in their spare time. I would also like to say thank you to all ladies who expressed their willingness to help in sewing bags.

Autumn is a great time to have a walk, admire the beauty of nature and consolidate your knowledge through the observation. Due to good weather conditions, pupils from the third class have visited the grove near to the our school and took a longer walk to the forest. The students recalled the names of the deciduous and coniferous trees and their characteristics, by which they can be identified with. They looked at all the layers of the forest and searched their inhabitants. In the wood they had the opportunity to see the pasture and talk about how important it is to help the animals to survive the winter. One of the students was so fortunate that while watching the lowest inhabitants of the forest layer he found the king of mushrooms - the noblewoman, but it was also nice to see the poisonous mushrooms that charmed their robes. The students also had the opportunity to look at the devastation in the forest made the last storm and could not believe that the wind broke such huge trees. Of course, during the walk, the children also developed their motor skills through natural obstacles: they jumped through a small stream, passed over a fallen tree and broke through a layer of undergrowth.
Try to quess by the smell and taste
Pupils from the third class have discussed topics related to crop, cereals and fruit. In addition to theoretical knowledge, it was necessary to find out in practice what was not so easy. The students had the task of recognizing selected vegetables and fruits by smell and touch. Although some vegetables seemed impossible to guess, everyone was having a great time. At the end of the class everyone had the opportunity to taste the white variety of watermelon planted in the garden of one of their colleagues. It turned out that it was also a surprising experience because the watermelon looked like all the other watermelons, but it tasted like melon.
We have started our cinema voyage
On the 10th October we have started our adventure with the cinema .A group of 20 students, under the care of Mrs. Teresa Maroszek and Mrs. Agnieszka Czerwińska set off on Tuesday afternoon to spend time in an interesting and pleasant way. This time we were on the fairy tale "My Little Pony". Traditionally, after the show we managed to get some good snacks and cought a bus to Janowice, where parents were already waiting in order to pick up their children. Everyone went back a bit tired , but also very happy. Of course there are questions about the next trip! Probably we will go in November.

National Education Day
On the 12th October at our school we have celebrated the National Education Day. Students from the third class altogether with older students from the Student Government prepared a set of short scenes from the school life. Although in real life, it is common that students make up thousands of excuses to justify lack of a task or preparation for classes or from time to time they give funny answer to questions. The most important thing is that they are very creative, and that is what teaching is all about. The performance was also filled with songs prepared by all studentsfrom 4 - 7 class under the supervision of Mrs. Anna Makuchowska. There were songs called "Advances", "Samba for Lady" and "Wishes". However, the most interesting point of the program was the moment when students from the 7th class played the song "Happy birthday" for all teachers on musical pipes. In the end, the students handed out handmade thank-you cards.

to the groove.
On the 10th of October, the first-graders went to a nearby grove to look at the plants. We paid special attention to the trees and the differences between them. Children with binoculars and magnifying glass saw needles and leaves of trees, they also observed that the leaves of each specimen differ from each other. The students also realized that the tree trunks differ in color and texture. At the end of our trip we were looking for signs of autumn, and found treasures we took to school.

They were the first of ten planned activities.
UNIKIDS Children's University is a science-based learning experience.
The lectures will cover many scientific disciplines, such as: Astronomy, Physics, Palaeontology, Medicine and Art.
In the first lectures the children learned what temperature the dry ice was, what will happen when we put dry ice in a bowl of water. Children watched the volcanic eruption of foam, learned how the balloon can be inflated in an unusual way.
It was a great fun!
We look forward to the next classes!

An apple in the leading role ...
Hate is an Internet-based process targeted at individuals. A phenomenon that is increasingly common, about which not everyone are aware of leads to tragic consequences. Remember before you share something online - think about it twice! All parents should check what their children are doing online!
The roleplay with the apple during IT lesson brought students closer to the phenomenon as well as the film about Simon make Pupils aware of cyberbullying process. It is an element of hate speech that must be tackled, reported, reacted and not allowed to be futher cyberbullying. Hate is a form of psychic violence, and as with any other form of violence, everyone has the right to defend themselves.

The Animal World Day
On the 4th of October we celebrated the Animal World Day in the fifth class. It became an opportunity to present our student's pets. The pupils prepared beautiful descriptions, drawings and pictures of their animals, such as cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits. Children talked about taking care of them. This Science lesson has also become an opportunity to show the problems of homeless animals.
The Animal World Day was established in 1931 at the Ecological Convention in Florence and starts the Animal World Week, which is taking place until the 10th of October.

do we get to know the world?
The answer to this question the first class students had tried to answer to. During the course they tried to identify the various objects by the usage of senses: taste, smell and touch. The blindfolded children tasted various food and tried to recognize them. The students had the opportunity to taste sweet, sour and salty products. As it turned out, product identification was not always an easy task, and sometimes there was a discrepancy between the students, but eventually each product was recognized. Then, with the sense of smell, children identified various odors. Lemon fragrance students recognized very quickly, but with the smell of orange and almond was slightly more difficult. At the end of the task the students had to recognize the objects hidden in the bag, of course only by the sense of touch. The children came up with great enthusiasm and bravely solved the next puzzle.

Clean Up the World!
As part of the "Clean Up the World" action on Wednesday, Students from the sixth class during their science lesson have discussed the human activities leading to the reduction of rubbish in the surrounding environment. For this purpose they have worked on the metaplan method. They had a problem "What to do to make the world less trashy?" The students paid special attention to the need for segregation and the removal of disposable items. The task has certainly made us aware of the need of taking care of our natural environment.
Students from the forth and fifth class took part in the nature trip to the grove, where they were able to observe various mushrooms, insects, arachnids, rings as well as the possibility of admiring the autumn beauty that nature gave us.
The pupils in the grove solved ecological crosses, which were a summary of today's expedition.
On the same day, students from the sixth ands fifth class during their Polish lesson had the opportunity to talk about wise segregation of waste, multiple use of packaging and various types of objects, thereby reducing the amount of waste produced. Also, there were presented other ways of different solutions for waste separation and reduction of their production.
In addition, as part of the cooperation of nature lovers with volunteers of our school (and not just schools), the action "Stop fooliówkom!" Has already begun! Some people resigned from disposable foil packaging for paper bags and reusable packaging. Bravo!
But it is not everything!
Since October, "production"of reusable bags has started :)Soon we will present our work, which we hope will replace the commercials and foil disposables. The teachers, parents, students of our school, students of the Silesian School Complex in Czechowice-Dziedzice and the Public Library in Janowice joined our work.

A first class policeman's visit
Safety education of the youngest pupils is a very important element of their education. The meeting with the police officer took place in the first week of our school year, during which we were talking about safety in school and on the roads.
We had an honor to talk with a policeman, a junior warrant officer, Kamil Chrapek from the Police Station in Czechowice – Dziedzice.
During the meeting, the children had the opportunity to talk about road safety, proper emergency notification, how to behave when a stranger starts talking to us, and things that are dangerous to the child and which should not be used by the child. Great excitement, however, aroused when the pupils could listen about policeman’s stories and had the possibility of touching, or even trying on some police accessories. Children could wear a cap, a bulletproof vest, touch the handcuffs or the police stick.
At the end of the meeting the students received the reflective bands they had promised to use. But it's not the end of the attractions yet! To the great excitement of the pupils, in front of the school there was waiting for them a real police car, which children could not only look at from the outside, but could also enter it and even turn on the lights and signals.

Roksana completed a special volunteer course. The girls had an interesting way of approaching the present to the fifth class students on the topic of help.
On the 29th of May, we delivered three boxes of books to the Regional Methodological Center in Bielsko-Biała, which were handed over to libraries in hospitals.
Thanks to the kindness of many donors, we managed to collect books for children and adults. Students and preschoolers also performed launders for small patients and wrote letters. We hope that thanks to these gifts, the faces in the hospital were happier.
On the 9th of June, our students wanted to share with seniors (and not just) the knowledge and skills related to computer and computer software. Mrs Alicja Englert prepared a poster, invited the Public Library to take part in such activities. The Volunteer Club was in charge of selecting volunteers who had the right knowledge, skills and willingness to pass it to others.
