The ISB Annual Winter Dinner and Dance 2019 had all the right ingredients for a perfect evening and was definitely one of the highlights of the school calendar.
The ISB Glee Club Society Choir greeted the guests on the stairs with their singing and all were entertained before dinner by our very talented girl band from Grade 10. The school community enjoyed the delicious buffet, were transfixed by the generous raffle prizes and danced the night away to great live music provided by The Flying Soul Toasters, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Our warm thanks go the the ISB PTA who did a tremendous job in organising this event - a social gathering not to be missed!

A group from the Deputation for Children and Education (Deputation für Kinder und Bildung) of the Bremen Senate, members of the FDP (Free Democrats), visited the ISB on Tuesday 26th November. They enjoyed a tour of the school and visited classes to get an idea of how the International School works and to discuss how to support us in the future.

Following three very exiting Handball House Tournaments the ISB House point board has changed once again with Roland now in the lead with 680 points followed by Lloyd (612 points), Hanse (506 points) and Schnoor trailing behind (490 points).

Elementary, Middle and Senior School demonstrated great skills and enjoyed some exciting Handball games. As always, the games were very close, and it is a shame that not every team can leave the field victorious.

Congratulations to all the winners and participants:

Elementary School
1st Hanse
2nd Roland
3rd Schnoor
4th Lloyd

Middle School
1st Schnoor
2nd Lloyd

As part of their IPC topic, Grade 5 were on a "Mission to Mars" when they were very privileged to receive an Aerospace guided tour at Airbus Space and Defense in Bremen. They learned about how water and food reach the astronauts and how they live, sleep, and carry out research in zero gravity. They saw a replica of the Columbus module, parts being constructed for the Ariane 5 rocket and last but not least, had a peek at the Space Shuttle laboratory.

ISB expresses their grateful thanks to Airbus Space and Defense for making this fantastic visit possible.

Take a look at the photos and two grade 5 students' Field Trip reports below. For data protection reason some faces have had to be blurred.

On November 1st, 2019 two of the ISB's very talented teachers, Jose Carceres and Marcela Caro shared Jose's new bilingual book "Die Tiere meiner Welt" (The Animals Of My World) at a very special performance held at the Bremen Instituto Cervantes as part of the Internationales Erzählfestival Feuerspuren 2019.

We all know how much is a Meter or how much a Liter is, but how much is a Newton? How big is it? Or how small is it? Our 9th graders have just started their new IGCSE unit "Forces, Work and Energy". Force is measured in Newtons and students did an activity to have a feel for Newtons, the unit of measurement of Force. They predicted how much force is needed to do some random activities like sliding a chair, opening a window, lifting a backpack etc. They then used Force meters to measure the actual force required to do these jobs. It was a fun activity to have an improved understanding of Newtons.

On 16th October, representatives of Grade 1 visited the local organization Trauerland Zentrum für trauende Kinder und Jungendlich e.V., where they proudly handed over the funds they raised through their recent Bake Sale.
Trauerland is very worthy local organisation set up to support grieving children and teenagers cope with the loss of a loved one.

Grade 8 students have just started their first IGCSE lab report for Physics. Students are exploring various factors that could affect the flight of paper airplanes. They had to choose one factor that they were interested in and conducted an experiment to see how their chosen factor affected the flight time / flight distance. Some chose to study the effect of the material with which the plan was made, while some chose the wing length and some the mass distribution. This week, they conducted their experiments and completed the data collection, and they will now further analyse their data and draw a conclusion.

Who Am Eye...?
Whose Smile Is This...?
Whose Tracks Are These...?

Early Learning 1 Parents were confronted with these questions in their children‘s project „All About Me“ where they were invited to identify their child‘s own features. It was not as easy as you might think...!
