The artist and writer Brian Pilkington visited Landakotsskóli

Brian Pilkington donated some of his drawings to Landakotsskóli

Last week Brian Pilkinton visited the school via Google Classroom. Brian is an artist, illustrator and writer and is well known for his books about the Icelandic Yule Lads. He set up a virtual drawing studio with students from the A group and the 3rd grade. The children were able to talk to him and make requests for him to draw their favourite Christmas characters. Brian made these drawings for the children and they were able to watch him work on the screen. The Icelandic students also got to practice their English, the International students now have a good understanding of Icelandic Christmas traditions.

Brian Pilkington kom í heimsókn í alþjóðadeild Landakotsskóla

Brian Pilkington er okkur að góðu kunnur fyrir teikningar sínar

Í síðustu viku heimsótti hinn þekkti listamaður Brian Pilkington, nemendur í 3. bekk og í A hóp. Hann teiknaði Grýlu, jólaköttinn og jólasveina í beinu streymi að ósk nemenda og fékk skólinn þrjár teikningar að gjöf sem nú prýða skólann. Fyrir utan góða teiknikennslu þá var þetta líka góð æfing í ensku fyrir íslensku nemendurna og hins vegar kennslustund í íslenskri jólamenningu fyrir alþjóðadeild!

The International A-group creates Shadow Play

Creativity in Landakotsskóli

 

Due to the strict division of Landakotsskóli into separate zones this semester, our teachers have had to be flexible and teach different groups and subjects than usual. 

The multi-talented team, Solveig and Hrafnkell, worked together to combine drama, music and singing with the International A-group in November. The result is a Shadow Play based on the Indian Legend How the Moon was kind to her Mother.
