Norwegian Essays

In their Norwegian lessons, Grade 8A have been working on writing argumentative essays about a topic they are interested in. After brainstorming, researching and polishing off their writing, the students sent in their pieces to the local newspaper Aftenposten. These were positively received and hopefully will be published for many to read! 

The topics covered everything from parental control over e-sports, to whether pineapple belongs on pizza. The students have worked hard and we can’t wait to see their published texts, stay posted on our social media account! 



Year of the Tiger

This week, we have started to celebrate the Chinese New Year at AIS. This year, we are opening the Year of the Tiger and closing the Year of the Ox. The Tiger is the third animal in the Chinese calendar and people born in the Year of the Tiger tend to be natural leaders with confidence and courage. During the Chinese New Year preparation, those MYP students who were born in the Year of the Tiger really demonstrated all these wonderful qualities. 

For the Chinese New Year celebration, all MYP students had worked hard to create exciting and wonderful performances. They have always worked as one united team for the Chinese New Year celebration and this one-team spirit continues each year because of every single MYP student! PYP students also participated in a series of Chinese New Year crafts activities both rich in content and entertainment. The whole school truly enjoyed the fun-filled celebration. 

Mr. Chang Quansheng, the first secretary of the Chinese Embassy also joined us. Thank him for sending his best wishes on this special day.

The Year of the Tiger is upon us! Happy Chinese New Year!




Fulfilling Dreams for a thousand streams

We are very fortunate to live in a country that is very good at national charity drives.

The students at Asker International School wanted to start another one. This one is about the cleaning of fresh water sources around the world.

I encourage everyone in Norway to join in. If we all turn our charitable attention towards The Ocean Cleanup, an organisation that is attempting to clean plastics and other waste from our oceans and rivers, then maybe they can set even more ambitious goals for 2022. We will drive this for the month of February. 

The VIPPS number below is limited to Norway, but borders shouldn't restrict outreach. All the best! #school#water#charity

Science experiments

It has been a busy week for Science at AIS. The Grade 7 students conducted a scientific experiment to test different foods for the presence of starch, sugar and protein. The students were engaged and treated the equipment with great care.

Grade 1 have been making balloon rockets to try and understand how the thrust of a rocket works. They conducted a proper scientific investigation to see what factors affect the force of the rocket’s velocity.

Second Grade students took their Maths learning to the forest this week! Using watercolor paint, students created regular and irregular polygons.
