On the occasion of the Education Day, on behalf of all students, representatives of the Students' Self-government submitted beautiful wishes, and then an academy prepared by the 4th class under the direction of Mrs Aleksandra M±kosa took place. The fourth graders took us all to Hawaii, and in this extraordinary transfer we were helped by the beautiful floral wreaths prepared in the day-care room activities (thank you very much to the educators for huge help!), which teachers and school staff received. The climate of the staging was emphasized by the beautiful decoration, prepared by Karolina Wróbel and Marcelina Kubiczek. Moreover, the prizes for the winners of the competition about the portraits of teachers working in our school were given.

of the poviat competition "Human and the environment"
We are pleased to announce that on the fifteenth edition of the competition, "Human and the environment", organized by the Poviat Eldership in Bielsko-Biała, two students from class 1b were awarded in the category of art work.
Daniel Heczko won the second place, and Wiktoria Zolich received the special prize of the Chairman of the Committee on Economy, Transport and Economic Development - Mr Bogusław Stolarczyk.
On Wednesday, the 10th of October, an unusual guest visited us, Mr. Sławomir Łyczko, together with his wife - Agnieszka, runs the Wild Animals Rehabilitation Center "MYSIKRÓLIK" and the Mysikrólik Foundation - Help Wild Animals.
Mr. Łyczko told the students about the foundation's activities, about how the day in the center looks like, how much time it takes to care about wild animals, what effects it brings and how difficult it is to look at the suffering of animals, especially when you can not help them.
Students devided into two groups, 5-8 graders and older kindergarten students with grades 1-4, watched videos about "Mysikrólik", heard about the process of treating animals and releasing them (if it is possible), about the extraordinary sensitivity of people who every day deal with the rescue and treatment of charges and veterinarians who do not refuse to help and support the activity of "Mysikrólik". It also turned out that our school community includes pupils and their parents who work with the center.
At the end, Mr. Sławomir presented to the pupils two young hedgehogs that are currently recovering at the "Mysikrólik" center. The animals probably liked our school and children, because they did not look scared and looked at students with great curiosity.
After the meeting, the students shared their impressions during the classes, and they were very positive. They liked the "live lesson", they showed empathy and maturity, as evidenced by donations given to the foundation. The collection will last until the end of next week.
PS During the time when Mr. S. Lyczko held a meeting with his students, his phone constantly informed him that an intervention (help) was needed somewhere. This is proof of how much the organization's activities are needed.
- lesson about disabilities
In one of the lessons of the Polish language, the sixth-graders experienced an extraordinary experience. On the occasion of discussing the "Katarynka" of B. Prus they could check on their own skin what it means to be blind. They would bring dolls or stuffed animals, clothes and cutlery and mugs for the lesson.
At the beginning, their eyes were tied. The first task was to dress a doll or teddies in the clothes of a younger sibling. It turned out to be quite difficult, the girls managed better.
The next task was to eat prepared foods, using cutlery and drinking water from the cup. This time it was not without damage - spilled water, butter fingers, mixed food.
It was an amazing experience. Nothing makes you as sensitive as experiencing the experience of otherness on yourself. I think that students will remember this lesson for a long time.
new in the first class?
The first month of learning is behind us. So what's up with the youngest students of our school? The first year very quickly became true disciples. They already understand their rights and obligations. School reality did not turn out to be so terrible. During the lesson students are able to focus more and more on the task, they are active and interested in the world. They have already learned the first letters, numbers, exploring the secrets of nature. Recently, willing children from class 1b could tell their colleagues about a chosen forest animal. So they prepared posters and talked about animals, arousing curiosity among their peers. I hope that in the following months I will be able to observe the same commitment and satisfaction among my students.
-what we love ... "
On Saturday, the 6th October, 26 students from grades 4-8 under the care of Monika and Janusz Krężelok and Jolanta Kuczynska set off to conquer the Beskid peaks in the XVII Poviat Autumn Hiking Trip "The Brown Leaf".
In perfect moods, with fantastic condition, incredible weather (though at times the mountain gave solid signs) and in the company of mountain guides we went the route (15 km) from the Cygański Las through the Kozia Górka, Przełęcz Kołowrót, Siodło pod Klimczokiem (there in the hostel we spent approx. 30 minutes) to Chata Wuja Toma on the Mountain Pass Karkoszczonka, from where we went to the bus stop to Szczyrk Biłej, where a coach was waiting for us.
At the finishing line of the rally, grilled sausage, tea and various competitions were waiting for us, in which students were eager to take part, and some even won prizes.
In total we spent together (from 7.20 to 16.20) nine hours, and they were extraordinary.
All hikers deserve great praise for: culture, kindness, joy of life, interesting conversations, presented knowledge, passions of all kinds, sense of humor, fitness, actively spent Saturday.
At the students' request, the next way out to the mountains will soon be, because "in the mountains is what we love and we get to know each other better", teacher-student, all barriers disappear.

- "Independent" Project
Onthe 3rd October, students from 6th ,7th, and 8th classes went on a day trip to Krakow, where they learned the history of the Kosciuszko Mound, paid tribute to Marshal Piłsudski in the Crypt of the Silver Bells on Wawel and visited the unusual museum - Oskar Schindler's Factory, which he was awarded the Righteous Among the Nations.
The students were accompanied by their educators and a pedagogue.
The trip was not easy, but it moved the hearts and minds of the students. Nothing tells history like experience.
Thank you to the Parents' Council for covering 30% of the cost of the trip.
differently - "Hobbit"
Sixth graders consideration about "The Hobbit" had ended creatively- creating board games in groups, which check the knowledge of the text and at the same time play and consolidate the material they had learned.
The students showed inventiveness, knowledge of reading and dexterity.
The new cinema season
On the 25th of September, under the care of Teresa Maroszek and Agnieszka Czerwińska, we went to the cinema for the first time this school year. This time, the students from the younger classes weremostly presence, because we went for a fairy tale "Princess and Dragon". On the eve of her seventh birthday, Princess Basia, who loved reading the most in the world, reached for a new book that turned out to be enchanted. When the girl opened it, a multitude of multicolored butterflies flew out of the pages! When Basia wanted to catch one of them, she magically moved to the fairy-tale land. Delighted by the beauty of the new place, she decided to stay for a while. Wandering around an unknown but beautiful area, the brave girl met a nice dragon called Smokus - because of its charming nature. Smoku¶ and Basia liked each other and spent the whole day together in great fun. When the girl felt tired, Draco escorted her home. "It was my best birthday," thought the Princess, and fell asleep in her bed extremely happy. This is how the adventures of Princess Basia begin, which on the day of her seventh birthday, she left the royal palace for the first time and entered the fairy-tale world. From that day she returned to the newly known place every evening. After seeing the wonderful adventures of Basia, we went for a snack and then return home :). I do not need to add that ... there are questions about the next trip.
Day in 6th class
It was a very tasty Friday. The girls with the tutor prepared (Kinga baked) the cake and lollipops, which were quickly consummated. They also wished them all the best! It was a lovely day.
The title of the nicest boy in the class was given to Mikołaj. Congratulations!
On the 30th of September, we had celebrate Boy's Day. In our school, no one had forgotten about this important event and the girls (including the tutor) made sure that the boys would feel special that day. No student left the class without a small gift, and the girls, a little jealous of the boys, inquired as to how long they would have to wait for their holiday. We hope that the whole weekend was just as nice for our boys as every Friday school day.
Reading Day in grades
The National Day of Loud Reading was established on the initiative of the Polish Chamber of Books in 2001. The date of the 29th September refers to the birth of Janina Porazińska, the author children and youth books. We celebrated this special day at our school on Friday, 28th of September. Students from 1-3 grades with invited guests: Mrs. Director Monika Krężelok, Mrs. librarian Mrs. Ilona Wójtowicz and Mrs. Ewelina Moczek - the manager of the dayroom gathered in the gym. The event was hosted by Mrs. Elżbieta Żmij. The students were divided into four groups, in which they solved tasks related to the main character of the day, that is: "the book". Each group under the supervision of their teachers ( E. Nikiel, A. Pycia, M. Kubiczek, and K. Wróbel) had to solve the crossword, guess the literary heroes to which the collected items belonged, guess the riddles hidden in colorful balloons, as well as the rest of the pieces of poems known to them. Mrs. Ilona Wójtowicz read out "Stefka Burczymucha" by Maria Konopnicka - the patron of our school. Subsequently, the director acquainted the children with a fragment of the story from the book about"Sweeties".
The aim of the campaign was to promote loud reading, acquire the pleasure of reading and listening, as well as the sense of belonging to the reading community. The students promised that the day of loud reading would also be celebrated in their homes. We hope that loud reading will become a habit, not a "holiday" event. Remember that reading aloud stimulates the development of children, enriches their vocabulary and develops the imagination.
On Thursday, 27th September, the first disco this year took place in our school. The play was great. It was obvious that everyone came to have fun and good time. Despite the initial difficulties with music, the situation was manageable and everything went smoothly to the end. A great event took place thanks to the special involvement of Kinga Czana, Julia Wójcik, Martyna Ziobro, Weronika Lorenc, Piotr Zeman and Krzysztof Kasolik. As a supervisor of SSG I thank them very much :) Of course, there would be no school disco without Teachers! This time, we would like to thank Mrs. Jolanta Kuczyńska and Mrs. Aleksandra M±kosa.

handicraft lesson in the 6th class
Educational lessons can be very different. During one of them, the sixth-graders learned how to make bracelets under the watchful eye of true master Katarzyna Jordanek. It was not easy. Difficult tangles and knots caused trouble, but it worked! Friendship bracelets were created, and one of them was given to me as a tutor.
Thank you, Kasia, for the materials, patience and great kindness that you gave to us. As it turned out, we are not too talented in this direction, but the lesson was very popular among students. We are looking forward to the next one! :)
"Clean up the
As part of the "Clean up the World" action, sixth-graders have created posters during the educational lesson. Both groups cooperated in order to create works promoting positive behaviors and denying inappropriate ones. Remember, the world is us!
Pana Kleksa according to the fourth graders.
The fourth grade students during Polish language had the opportunity to discuss the fairy tale written by Jan Brzechwa entitled "Akademia Pana Kleksa". In order to make their classes more creative, I proposed to create a 3D academy model. The idea was approved. The students showed ingenuity, good cooperation, knowledge of the text, and skills. It was not easy, but the results showed that it was worth taking the trouble of creation.
The students used the knowledge of the reading-world presented and the principles of cooperation.
Dot Day is an increasingly popular holiday in Polish schools. On the 13-14th of September during Integrated Skills Classes as well as English Language, pupils from 1a, 1b and 2 participated in various exercises connected with this wonderful holiday.
It all started with Peter Reynolds' book The Dot, telling the story of a little girl- Vashti. The whole story leads through the subject of resignation, lack of one's talents, the great role of the teacher, until the happy ending - believing in one's own abilities. That is why the Day of the Dot is a great opportunity to help students to believe that each of them has some unique skill and if they only want, they can do anything!

"School Adventures of
the Sweeties Gang"
It is not necessary to convince anyone that reading is extremely important in the process of the development of a child. It has been known for a long time that it influences the stimulation of the imagination, teaches independent thinking, exercises memory and concentration. To encourage children to read on a daily basis, students from class 1-3, along with tutors and parents, were included in the competition organized by the shop "Biedronka". The children received an album with a "reading tree" in which for each day of loud reading (at least 10 minutes) confirmed by the signature of the tutor they will receive a sticker with one member of the gang
"Reading tree" is one of the elements of the contest "School Adventures of the Sweeties Gang". The preparation for the competition will be celebrated on the 29th of September during "National Loud Reading Day" (in our school on the 28th of September - Friday). And the competition will consist in drawing or writing a shared story about further adventures of the Sweetie Gang.
I hope that albums with stickers will become a good motivation for spending free time with a book, and the competition task will stimulate the imagination of children and integrate students of grades 1-3.
Every Tuesday, at the 6th lessons, the room 1.24 turns into a Small Artist Studio- due to the activities organized as part of the art club for first graders. During the classes, children can develop artistic interests and abilities, also they are allowed o trelease and development of aesthetic sensitivity, as well as cognitive processes. The curriculum also allows to shape the skills of organizing work as well as cooperation in a team, and improving the skills of focusing on the activity that is performed. Classes are conducted by the first class teacher, Mrs. Karolina Wróbel and Mr. Marcelina Kubiczek.
During the first meeting the students "went" to the rough sea, after which the sailboat drifted. In order for such an effective work to be created, the children had to demonstrate their ability to plan, cut, design and be creative. Each work was different, some at the bottom were algae, shells, and in others, goldfish. Thank you for your presence.
"Holidays are over, it’s time to come back to school ..."
On the 3rd September, all students, teachers and parents, full of holiday experiences and energy, had welcomed the new school year. After the mass they came to school, where after introducing the flagship and singing the national anthem, our headmaster Mrs. Urszula Kal had warmly welcomed all those gathered in the gym, especially the first-class pupils with their parents. The academy was performed by 3rd graders, under the guide of their tutor Mrs. Elżbieta Żmij. The third graders in their jocular program reminded about holiday adventures and gave tips for further school year.
Then the first graders, under the watchful eye of their tutors: Mrs. Marcelina Kubiczek and Mrs. Karolina Wróbel, made a solemn oath, after which, with a huge pencil, they were knighted as new students of The Konopnicka Primary School in Janowice.
Then everyone went to classrooms to reminisce about summer adventures and say hello to their tutors and classmates. The students started this school year with a smile. We hope that he will accompany them to the last days of the school year.
We wish all children starting their adventure with the school, that this place will be friendly and safe place for joyful learning and support the development of your passions and talents. However, we would like to wish all teachers and parents a lot of perseverance and enthusiasm in taking up new educational challenges.
