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.


A third grade 1 class in August 2022!


It is with great pleasure that we get to announce the addition of a third grade 1 class at Asker International School! That's right! Now we will have 60 new grade 1 students joining our ranks in August. 

The reason for this is growth, growth as an institute and not just in number. We want to show our current parent group and future parents that we are ready and willing to grow. We have the numbers and we have the reputation. 
We started with 900m2 in 2013 and 36 children and AIS managed to negotiate more space to allow our growth. There may be a few bumps in the road, but our trajectory is up. We don't believe in settling. The leadership team in AIS are builders, and they and the staff at AIS have never been afraid of all the work it has taken to make AIS what it is today. 
We are very excited to make this announcement and move towards 400 students in our ranks in August 2022. But this is not the end goal. There will be more development and more exciting things happening in the months and years to come! 


A new year

We started a new year with well-rested students who are ready to go!

In Grade 4, the students created a class vocabulary wall consisting of words from our unit. They wrote the definition, part of speech, created a sentence using the word as well as drew a picture that represented the word. A great point of reference for the next 7 weeks!

To inquire into our new unit, the students in 5A came up with questions about migration to put on our wonder wall.

In 3A, we're looking at explorers. This  week, we listened the Czech composer Dvorak's "From the New World" symphony. He wrote it while feeling homesick in New York, and we thought about what it made us feel, or what it reminded us of.

We will continue the testing and follow any government guidelines as they come up. 



Science and Art MYP

This year the Grade 6 students have worked hard to create a Norwegian Endangered Species Calendar as a part of their Science and Visual Arts classes. Their aim is to create awareness for these threatened species and to raise money for Naturvernforbundet who work to protect these animals.

The Calendars contain original artwork by our students and information pertaining to each of the species via a QR code.

The students sold the calendars for 200kr with proceeds going towards Naturvernforbundet.

AIS is marking the  International Day for People with disabilities by raising awareness within the PYP, looking at what we mean by disability. MYP students had an assembly on Monday to discuss how people with disabilities are viewed and included within our community.
