December concert-week :-)
Please make sure that your child has their costumes ready. 
Grade 1, 2 and 3 students should come in dressed in their colour from morning. Wollen underwear or tights and longsleeve is perfect. They can wear it underneath. Please minimise print.

Please check your childs blogpage if you are uncertain of colour, or ask your child. Looking forward to Thursday!

Wednesday 18/11
Please see your childs grade page(Remember to scroll down for updates) for information regarding December Concert in Asker Kulturhus 17th of December at 5 PM.
Regarding costumes and expectations.

 If your family will be traveling and not present at the December Concert, I ask that you inform Mr Robert in writing this week.

Thank you so much to the parents who have started to create costumes for the students. If you would like to help 
I am certain that the lovely ladies (men welcome too ;-) ) will give you something to do. 
Please let us know if you have any tutus(ballerina skirts) or lion costumes that we could borrow.
Thanks :-)

Thank you so much to the parents who came to kick-off the costume club today. I am super excited to see what creations they come up with. I am sure they have a job for you if you would like to join. We are also looking for possible costumes that parents may have at home. Please let us know if you have and are willing to lend out any of the following:
Lion suits
Black capes
A big Thank You :-)

Production Unit
In November all groups will start working towards our Winter Show on the great stage in Asker Kulturhus. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to show themselves and others what they have achieved and learned.

For now I will not reveal our plans and ideas,
 but we are hoping to put together a group of volunteers for making of costumes and a few simple props. Let me know if you would like to help.

Welcome back!
PYP (grades 1-5)All grades have new units and they have been presented on each grades`blog.

Welcome to PA at AIS August 2015.
This first week we will be getting to know each other, the PA room and expectations. 
Looking forward to playing, creating and learning with all students this semester.

Students have this past week shown through various presentations adaptation of skills that we have trained. We can see that we have learned a lot, and that we still have a lot to learn :-)
Looking forward to a creative start to the new year in August and also the start of MYP Drama.

Have a fantastic Summer Break!

Welcome back!
Our new year has started fresh and with the knowledge the students acquired last year, we continue to build our skills in the PA room.

18th of December 2014
All our hard work paid off, and I am very proud of all students for their participation in our winter show yesterday. I am pleased to see how much they have learned and look forward to following them further in their development.

God Jul og et Godt Nytt År-

Have a lovely December break-see you all in 2015 :-))

Miss Kirsti
ALL students get a chance next week to choose an exercise to demonstrate, explain and put in their portfolio. (19/9-14)

It is great for students to try to explain in their own words what we are doing in the PA room, and what they are experiencing.
 Use this blog to follow their development and to keep up with terms and skills that they acquire.

Welcome to the blog for PA at AIS. I will post examples of students` work and weekly updates on what we are working on in the PA lessons. Homework will not be given on a weekly basis, but when they get homework, it will be posted on the top of their grade page. I ask that you keep updated on the blog on a weekly basis.

In performing arts we will work on areas such as coordination, movement, voice, concentration, improvisation, characters, stories and imagination. Lessons will consist of exercises that will emhasis and strengthen these qualities.

The PA lessons will in addition to strengthening basic skills and providing students with tools for this type of work, also actively use the IB learner profile and attitudes and incorporate the units that students are working on in their classrooms.

I am looking forward to learn, explore and play in our PA lessons this semester!

If any questions, please don`t hesitate to contact me at :


As in all areas of the school, students are encouraged and expected to implement the IB learner profiles and attitudes in their work and at school in general. 
In the PA room we will work especially on being:

Risk takers
And we show........
A positive attitude

This is important to ensure that all students can develop to their full potential.
