Due to the pandemic in the schools of the region, it will not be possible to organize New Year's parties in the usual mode, but educational institutions still managed to create the spirit of the holiday. So, in the Lyceum of the city of Sovetsk, they organized a competition for the best decorations and held intellectual games. Of course, on a Christmas theme.
Toys nailed to the ceiling are New Year's decorations. Even from the entrance to the Lyceum, students are greeted with many trees, Christmas wreaths and garlands. The children made some of them on their own.
EVGENIYA SOLOVYOVA, CORRESPONDENT:
- When creating winter fairy-tale characters, the children went to the end and even named their New Year characters. So there is a snowman Shy, his brother Hot-I-melt, Karandavik, made of used pencils. There is also the Aldente tree, which, of course, consists of pasta.
Not without the topic of a pandemic. The “Self-isolation” tree is a 150-apartment building. In each window there is a distance learning student and a parent working remotely. There is also a Christmas tree made of medical gloves.
The Christmas tree is an excellent student, a plump New Year's beauty and brutal, black with thorns. Ahead - the jury's assessment. It includes employees of the local administration and school teachers. But the first opinion about the exhibition was given by children.
All roads lead to ROME, so the children after a school day rush there, and not home. This is an acronym for "Christmas Intellectual Marathon".
NATALIA SOLOVYOVA, TEACHER OF RUSSIAN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE:
- The questions are not the easiest ones, they were metasubject questions. That is, at the junction of different objects. These were questions about New Year's customs, about how the New Year is celebrated in different countries.
Each team came to the intellectual competition in themed costumes.
EVGENIYA OSIPOVA, RESIDENT OF THE SOVIET:
- We started looking for snowflakes, because we originally called ourselves that. And then we found these capes and decided that we would be fluffy snowflakes.
"Santa Clauses", "Snow Maidens" and even "Deer" answered questions about the New Year celebration on the ISS, learned about the underwater tree, and tried to learn the wishes "Happy New Year!" in Vietnamese, Somali and Sardinian.
