A Child’s Life in MIP

Theme of the week: (February 4 - 8): Food Groups

Would you like to know what our students have been doing recently? We are happy to tell you!

Children from the middle group during the first days of February have been studying in detail the topic “Food Groups”.

In literature classes, students have become acquainted with fables and tales about the topic of food. As for Russian works, they read the fairy tales, "The Cock and the Bean Seeds" and "Porridge from the Ax". Concerning foreign literature, the children liked the story of the “The Gingerbread Man” the best.


In our English classes, the youngest students enhanced their vocabulary on the topic "Food". The children learned how to describe the different tastes of food and expressed their own taste preferences.

In our experimentation lessons, our researchers were enthusiastic during the sensory game of guessing smells. This type of activity has helped to develop their sense of smell.

Perhaps, after reading this information, you are all in need of a snack!

Theme of the week: (January 21 - 25): Funny Farm

What interesting things happened in the youngest children’s group recently?

"Funny Farm" – This was the theme of the week for the smallest members of Mipreschool.

All days long, children were making animals shapes and crafts, they sang about animals, read fairy tales about them and, of course, studied many English words on this topic.

In the developmental classes children were learning to love and respect their pets, and also learned to distinguish the animal sounds.


In the literature classes, children became acquainted with the fairy tales “Moo, Moo Brown Cow ”, “Have You Got Any Milk?” And “Chicken Ryaba”. Yes, our students get become familiar with foreign literature in the original language!

And in the creative classes they have been feeding pets.

Theme of the week: (December 17 - 21): Concept of time

Here is the final report from this year regarding the classes of Mipreschool students.

Last week our children studied the concept of time.

In their creative classes, the children, as part of a team made a magic clock. (Are you wondering what the magic was?)

In English classes, the younger group became acquainted with the different routines of the day. The students did their favorite finger gymnastics “Hickory-Dickory”, and also with their teacher Jason, asked the question: “what do the children do at different times of the day”

During the week in developmental activities included the children meeting the dwarf ‘Tik-Tak’ and guessed the answer to many riddles which were given by him.

That was a very interesting time for children and that is how we finished expiring 2018!

Theme of the week: (December 10 - 14): Eternal Winter

Time has flown and it’s already Friday!


This means that it’s time to summarise this week’s learning outcomes and tell you what interesting things the children have been doing.


Eternal Winter was the theme of the week for the older children.


In speech therapy classes the children built on their knowledge of winter and it’s features and also practised answering questions in complete sentences.


Especially informative during the week’s ‘Young Polymath’ lesson, was a study of the Northern Lights and how the people in the far north live in extreme conditions.


During experimentation classes children expanded their understanding of Arctic Animals and created a ‘Snow Strom’.

As always, we have presented to you just a small sample of the things we have been doing.

Theme of the week: (December 3 - 7): World of Dinosaurs

What interesting things have been happening in the classes of children from the older group? 

During the past week, the children studied the "World of Dinosaurs" and found out about their different varieties and the habitat in which they lived.

The children learned about paleontologists and what happened during the Ice Age in the “Young Erudite” lesson. By the way, apparently, there is a favorite dinosaur cartoon for many students!

Also, during the lesson ‘Around the World’, the children studied dinosaur footprints and became acquainted with the theories of the extinction of these ancient animals.


Creative activities were especially fascinating for the children. They modeled the reptiles which they had studied before, using clothes-pegs and created a "dinosaur habitat" diorama.

It is possible that after taking part in such exciting activities and using all the interactive equipment (we will give you more details about this tomorrow), some of the children will want to become paleontologists!

Theme of the week: (December 3 - 7): Winter and winter activities

This week the children have learnt a lot about winter and winter activities. The children read and listened to many stories and learned themed poems. First of all, these were the well-known “Frost”, “Toptyzhka” and “Children's Tale of Winter”.

Children were especially excited during science and experimentation classes. Children from the nursery group saw how snow and ice changed state, and when melted, they discussed why it shouldn't be eaten! After the research, they froze magic icicles.

During their favorite English classes, the children learned the names of the winter months and thematic words. The children also trained their fine motor skills-they dressed a cartoon boy for a winter walk (by gluing the missing elements to the picture). Through play, children quickly memorized new vocabulary.


These are all the interesting things our students have been doing this week!

Theme of the week: (November 26 - 30): Good manners


We are eager to provide you with an update on the new knowledge and achievements of the students at our kindergarten.


Throughout the past week, children from the middle group have devoted their time to the study of a topic concerned with “Good manners.” After all, it is very important that, from the first years of a child’s life that they are taught how to have a proper conversation, to show respect to other people and to be friendly and polite. ⠀


The children also learnt about the history of Thanksgiving Day, and in which countries it is celebrated. Young scholars, with the involvement of their teacher, took part in a discussion and thought about the symbolism of this holiday.


The lesson with our speech therapist got the children very involved and interested. They were exploring articulation and taking part in finger gymnastics.


During the creative master-class the students made “Turkey puppet” and modeled fictional characters from salt dough. This was which intended to help them to remember to be polite.


Last week was a busy and successful week at MIPreschool!

Well, that Monday crept up on us quickly! That means it's time to tell you what Mipreschool students have been doing during the last week. Today we want to share with you the favorite activities from the older group children.

Our students made a lot of presents for their beloved mums during creative classes. Children drew flowers  and made crafts from felt and cards and other materials. During lessons about ‘The world around them,’ the children became acquainted with the traditions of Mother's Day celebrations in other countries.⠀During the English classes, our students have been talking about the ways in which they help their mothers and have also described how their mums look, and some of their favorite things.


Throughout the week, the touching atmosphere of love towards the mothers in our lives has filled the walls of our kindergarten!

Our 6th birthday


It was really hard to keep this a secret, but now is a good time to share this with you.


We’ve celebrated our 6th birthday as a preschool on the 27th of October. Unbelievable!


And because we decided to share this special moment with everyone, we organized a theatre play “Cipollino” for all of our children. This was such a real spectacle for everyone, including our staff members! Take a quick look at the photos below.
