The Fashion Museum

The Fashion museum is located in the north of bath near the Circus. The Museum has an elegant atmosphere that makes you feel uncomfortable, not well dressed and you don’t want to touch anything because you might break something. ( TRUTH ) In the museum you’ll see all kinds of different dresses from the early 1800’s century to 2012. In the beginning off the museum you’ll get a phone like device witch is an audio guide,. You choose witch dress you want to hear about press the number into the device and it will be a story about the dress, who made it, when was it modern, who wore it. There was also different kinds of gloves from the early 19th century, some shoes and corsets. In The middle of the museum there was a station were you could try out some clothes from the Victorian time period. There were costumes for both women, children and men. When you were done walking around in the museum, there was another station were you could write down how to make the museum better and design your own dress. When tired of the dresses there was a gift shop on the top floor.

The Postal Museum

The Postal Museum is a little museum located underneath “The Post Office”, in central Bath. The museum it’s most about the history of post.

I the beginning you get a brochure that you can follow, but if you want to you can just go around by yourself. You don’t read much on the museum, you’re learning by listening.

In the beginning of the museum it’s a little gift shop where you can buy souvenirs from the museum. The cash-desk it’s actually a very antique old desk from the first postal office ever in Bath.

The first room you’re coming to if you’re following the brochure is the “Room of Firsts”, with a collection of postal firsts.

The other things you can learn about in the museum is the history behind Ralph Allen and John Palmer, the Victorian post office, sounds of different post horns signals, how old post boxes and stamp machines looks like, the history of communications and more things about post history.

Some other and more fun things you can do is perforate your own sheet of collectable stamps and cancel your own stamps to solve a puzzle. There is another game too called “Potholes and Pitfalls” that you can play. You can also dress up as an old/present postman or Ralph Allen and John Palmer.

We think it’s a very small museum, but even though you learn a lot there. It’s a interesting and fun museum. The staff is really nice and helpful. We would like to visit them again!

Work experience

Take charge Bikes

We had our work experience at a place that sell and hire electronics bikes. Benjamin and Ulf ride bikes 20 km on the work experience day. That was a very funny day with some really beautiful thing to see. We also cleaned the bikes we have used. It was a really good day and we are very happy to do our working experience at the bike shop.

December 25th

We’ve been working at a Christmas shop called December 25th. The store itself isn’t that big, but it was full with toys and a variety of Christmas decorations. The store is located on Cheap Street and is a 4.8 km walk from our youth hostel. Since we only worked one day we didn’t do very much. We mostly unpacked and labeled different goods.

The Body Shop

We have worked at The Body Shop. We had a really good time there. On the first day we talked very mutch to the costumers’. The second day we tot to wrap thing up. The one who worked on the store were nice and kind.

The Roman baths

We’ve been working at the Roman baths. The people there were very nice, and it was a good experience working there. We got a lot of knowledge in history and English while working there. If we were to work there longer we would probably do the same thing we’ve been doing this past week, witch was talking to the staff and costumers, learning about how the Romans bathed and about their believes. Everybody that was working there were very helpful, and it seemed like they wanted us to have best time possible!

Bath Aqua Glass

We have worked at Bath Aqua Glass. The things we did on our work experience were to knot strings on the bubbles the glass blowers had made. We also tag them with little notes on the string. We have talked much with the staff and they were very nice to us.

Bath information Center

Anton: I have stand behind the desk and watched when my ‘’teacher’’ talking to tourist. The last hour I walked upstairs where Amalia was, and helped her with some questions about our Swedes.

Amalia: I worked at the information center. I worked with questions about Swedish travel media. I sat in an office with a Scottish woman she was very nice. Everyone was nice to me and it was kind of fun.

The Courtyard

I worked in a café called the courtyard where I washed dishes. My co workers was very nice and I liked working whit them.

Bubbly

We have worked at a shop called Bubbly. Bubbly serves bubble tea – which is a kind of ice tea with juice bubbles, origin in Taiwan.

Whilst there, we got to do a lot of things; for example, we got to walk out with free samples of tea to offices in Bath. We also got to come up with advent offers (different offers everyday in December until Christmas) and promote those. But most important – every member of the staff was lovely, we got to talk a lot, and it was the best work experience we’ve ever had!

The Postal Museum

We had our working experience at the Postal Museum. The Museum was a really nice place and we liked it very much. Peter was really ice and fun to talk too and we learned a lot. The museum was very small, but it was a lot of stuffs there. If we could, we would do it again!

Ida-Martina

Abbey church

Our work experience was at a church near the Abbey. It wasn’t a church café, but a café in a church. It was really nice and there was much more visitors then we thought. We got to dish, clean the tables, fill the sugar bowls and stuff like that. We also got free lunch and some hot chocolate. The staff was very nice, one of the girls was from Australia and one of them could talk danish.

Toystore

My work experience was at a toyshop and I work for 2 hours and on the two hours we were in mostly in the coffee room and drink chocolate, and I did´t talk so much so it was a really bad work experience.

Stonehenge

mmm 1912013-11-24 14.20.57mmm 182 

Sunday the 23d of November we went to Stonehenge. We got to see the stones from about 10 to 30 meters distances in different angels. We got a walkie-talkie-looking thing that we used to listen to different stories about Stonehenge. There were seven signs with numbers on, each number had a storie. Stonehenge is over 5000 years old and many of the stones have fallen. In the beginning, when Stonehenge was completely it worked as a calendar because the sun was shining on a special stone each month. It felt a little bit mysteriously to be walking around Stonehenge but it’s was really cool!

Bath 2013 – Thursday

Three days has passed since our arrival in Bath. This far, we have been to museums, ”hiking” around the city, and we even got time for work experiences!

 

We live in a youth hostel in Bathwick hill. Basically, Bath is surrounded by hills which makes the city core in the middle of a ”pit” and everything in the nearby area is built upon the mountains. From our hostel, it is a good walk to the city.

This is why you probably will see  a bodybuilder as your teen gets home.

So, now to the museums.  We have already been to a handful of museums, most notably is The Fashion Museum and The Roman Baths.’

The Fashion Museum is a museum that shows how fashion has changed during the history and how it got affected by historical occurrences. You could even try to dress up as a Victorian person.

The Roman Baths is a museum that exhibits how the roman people came to Bath and dug out baths from the hot springs.

The views around Bath is amazing. As you may or may not know, Bath is on the UNESCO’s World Heritage list. It makes some of the old Georgian houses look absolutely stunning.

Inför Öppet Hus

Det är fredag den 4e Oktober och snart fylls lokalerna på skolan med nära och kära – och förhoppningsvis nyfikna innevånare. Eleverna är för stunden djupt engagerade i musik- och redovisningsträning. Det är god stämning och ser ut att bli en väldigt bra dag.

Denna vecka har varit fylld med skolarbete, förberedelse inför Öppet Hus och elevrådsutbildning för elevrådet. Det sistnämnda hölls i Jokkmokk i onsdags. Det var en trevlig dag där vi fick lära oss mer om hur elevrådet fungerade och om viktiga saker som vi vill ändra på. Maten var jättegod också!

Åter till det öppna huset; nu har det sakta börjat komma lite folk och stämningen är på topp.

Nu måste vi återvända till musikträningen, kom på Öppet Hus och lyssna! Om inte, ha en trevlig helg!

Gymnasieinformation

Trots att det känns som att läsåret nyss börjat är det hög tid för eleverna i årskurs nio att börja fundera på sina gymnasieval. Elevernas första informationstillfälle kommer att bli fredagen den 11 oktober. Ni föräldrar kommer också att få en grundläggande information om kommande gymnasieval. För vuollerimföräldrarna blir det torsdagen den 10 oktober kl 18.30 på skolan. För Harads/Svartlåföräldrarna blir det torsdagen den 17 oktober i Harads. Lokal meddelas senare.

När kursplanerna är som bäst

Eleverna borde få större frihet att tolka kursplanerna. Kommande skolverksinspektion torde knappast ha någonting att anmärka på upplägget och tolkningen av några av ämnet idrott och hälsas samt hem- och konsuments centrala innehåll.

  • Lekar och andra fysiska aktiviteter i skiftande natur- och utemiljöer under olika årstider.
  • Badvett och säkerhet vid vatten vintertid.
  • Kulturella traditioner i samband med friluftsliv och utevistelse.
  • Måltidens betydelse för gemenskap.
  • Bakning och matlagning och olika metoder för detta. Hur valet av metod påverkar arbetsprocessen och resultatet.
  • Redskap och teknisk utrustning som kan användas vid bakning och matlagning och hur dessa används på ett funktionellt och säkert sätt. Read More

Dubbelvinst eller ”win – win”

”Vänner som man kan ha nytta av, ska man vara rädd om” var det någon som sa. Stor nytta blev det för alla inblandade då elever från Bokenskolan besökte oss och genomförde en fysikdag. Och kanske bäst av allt – nu känner man både några elever och lärare inför den kommande gymnasieutbildningen – och det kan man ha nytta av.  

Andraårselever från Bokenskolan i Jokkmokk agerade lärare för en dag i fysik för eleverna vid Vuollerims Friskola. En skoldag som nog eleverna från de båda skolorna kommer att ha nytta av i framtiden – på många olik sätt. Förutom nyvunna kunskaper och relationer får vi se detta som en dag i entreprenöriell anda.  Efter att eleverna med sin lärare Björn hade lämnat oss var det många elever som inte gjorde sig någon brådska hem. Det fanns lite att smälta och fundera över. Alla uttryckte samma sak – att det hade varit en rolig och lärorik dag.  Här nedan några citat från elevernas reflektioner över dagen. Read More

Öppet Hus

Dagen började med att eleverna Read More
