Welcome to Welcome to our third issue of ØISIE, Østerbro International School In English. It has been quite a long time since our last issue. There are a lot of good things going on in ØIS and ØISIE. We have new members to our staff, Zenana Ohja and Francesco Cagliardi , both from PYP5. They have both contributed wonderfully ito this issue and hopefully will contribute more in the upcoming issues. There are also new contributions from four EAL students from PYP3, who have progressed so much that they are proudly presenting their work at ØISIE. I would like to congratulate Dima, Yakup, Selma and Leann on this accomplishment. I would like to also introduce you our new section ‘Winter Recipes’. Here our writers and contributors would like to address not only to your literary expectations but also to the sweet tooth. Our editors, Emma Gyde and Emma Simonsen have written two delicious recipes . Yummm. I would also like to congratulate Prep Class students upon their achievement in reading and writing. They have worked really hard . Here we will only publish three of these youngest writers of ØIS, Amy, Ana and Mahdiyah. I would like to thank to these students and their teachers Elizabeth Toran and Angeliki Kalapotharakou, who made this possible. Lastly, I would like to thank Ms. Claudia Mclean and PYP 2 students for their winter stories and drawings. They have done really amazing and I am proud to present them here. I would like to thank to all of the staff members of ØISIE, ØIS Administration and Teachers who helped to make this happen.

Flashlight Muneeb Ahmad

Once upon a time, so long ago that, the devil had not passed away yet.The devil flew around inside Grandma’s house. Grandma was sleeping in her bed.The devil was invisible, he annoyed and killed people. “Now it is your turn to die” said the devil.The devils only weakness was light. In the light, the devil will lose its invisibility and die. ØISIE -´Østerbro International School In English 12

All of a sudden Jack came in, and turned the lights on.Then the devil flew up onto the roof so it could protect himself. Jack asked “How are you doing?” Grandma woke up “I am fine, fresh as always!” she answered. “We have to eat breakfast now everyone is at the table except for you” Jack said. “I am coming ”grandma answered.


While everyone was eating, someone poked grandma. “Stop poking me Jerry you have to behave like your big brother Jack”. “Yes that’s right” said mom. It wasn’t me Jerry said. No one listened to him. Someone whispered in Grandmas ear “Muhahahaha soon my friend soon.” Grandma got a little bit afraid. “Let’s go to work boys, it is getting late” said mom. Mom and dad went to work while Jerry and Jack went to school. While they were gone Grandma decided to read a book. After a while grandma fell asleep and began to dream. “Where am I” said Grandma. “You are in a big dark castle full of emptiness” said the devil and stepped forward. “What is that? A ghost ahhhh” grandma screamed and woke up. The devil was still inside Grandma. In that she woke, she fainted 1 second later. Jack came home with his brother and his parents.They realized that Grandma had fainted.They took her to the hospital and they were told that grandma was in coma… Jack and his family got very sad after hearing the news. While mom was crying outside the room she said “let’s go home. “No we want to be here with her” said Jerry and Jack.They decided to stay at the

hospital. Meanwhile the devil was inside grandma, he was enjoying their sadness. The devil has lost its invisibility and has formed into a bacterial blob inside grandma. The very next day nurse Joy came to Jack and his sad family and said “Why are you all sad? Your grandma is still alive”. Jack and his family went into the doctor’s room. Grandma was still in coma. “We found a blob inside your grandma” said Doctor Nelson. Doctor Nelson showed them the blob with a stick. Doctor Nelson pointed a flashlight at the blob so they could see it .The devil screamed. It was weak against light and started to melt. It was dying. Everyone got shocked. Everyone was quiet that minute. In that the moment the devil died Grandma woke up. She forgot everything about the nightmare. “GRANDMA!” shouted everyone and hugged her.They were all happy now. “Thank you Doctor Nelson” said Jack. “No problem” he answered. After all this drama they finally decided to go home. Since that day everything has been normal, and the devil has never been seen or heard of since.

Winter Time

Japan When Japan starts to get cold you may start to see some odd stuff such as: monkeys in a hot spring. That's right, every year thousands of tourists show up to see the Japanese Snow Monkeys (or Macaques) play in the hot springs of Japan to keep warm during the harsh winter.

ØISIE -´Østerbro International School In English 22

There are many traditional holidays in Japan but New Year is actually the most important one. Most businesses close from January 1 to January 3 so they can spend time with their families. They often decorate their homes with ornaments made of pine, bamboo, and plum trees and they always eat

Number the Stars

ØISIE -´Østerbro International School In English 40


Book Reviews Number the stars is a book written by Lois Lowry. Number the stars is a book about a little girl that is called Annemarie, she is aged 9. She grows up in wartime. She has a best friend. Her best friend is called Ellen. Annemarie was Danish but Ellen was Jewish. They lived in Denmark. Later on Annemarie discovered that Ellen was Jewish and she also discovered that Ellen was in danger. As you have heard, the Germans were in control of Denmark at that time and when the Germans were in control of a country they would send Jewish people to concentration camps or kill them. So Annemarie’s family hid Ellen to protect her. In some cases soldiers came into their house searching for Ellen. One time they came in and banged the door but their parents found excuses. Another time was when they went to their Uncle’s house to try to give the Jewish people something in secret. And at last, the Jewish people escaped to Sweden with a little help.

Chantal Girishan

You make me stare at my table, You make me regret that I spoke And even when you know I know the truth, you fill me up with your lies Now you're yelling at me, because I wrote a poem You hate me for it, c' ause you know, you can never do the same You make me listen to my friend cry You make me read science again and again See, I don't want to be what you are, we are not the same I don't know what you're thinking, when you're beating some sense to me But I am the one, who can feel the pain of your bad day I want to teach you, so you could know how to love, But i'm just another child in your classroom, you don't care about me I want to walk the path, that i have chosen myself So don't tell me to be Einstein, when I want to be Shakespeare ØISIE -´Østerbro International School In English 47

Look at this boy hands, they aren't nice right Then look at that again I think we have to fight, Against this, Do you think it very nice, To dig holes even at the night. Let me tell the story, Of a young young kid He had nothing to do, Until they came for him, A little thinking will help ya, How to do this, You just look at the picture And you will see everything They aren't humans They have guns in their pockets I think this is insane And that they have no brain To do this you have to have no brain

Holes

Emma Simonsen

Shoveling holes, forced by guns The king on his throne, as he watches us young Sold to their work, damaged bones and cracked up faces Mining copper, working for their bases Food given daily, but rarely enough Working down here, you gotta be tough No gloves or helmet, pocket full of filth Spades clack on dirt, covering up the hills Over populated silhouettes smothered in mud Hot sweaty faces, knuckles smeared with blood Thinking man, wish I had some luck, mining every day for the single gold buck Cellphones, computers all a waste of time but we spend all our hours digging ØISIE -´Østerbro International School In English 50


Poetry This should be a crime Alleged minutes we squander, Eyeing our holes as we ponder bout the way life could be If everyone would just see, we aren't to be used We are the slaves, everyday always abused Our surroundings harsh, Only job so close, our work rewarded with such grime marsh Yellow muck upon this earth, dragging this sludge back to my turf Situations so poor, can't even afford the price for a front door Open your eyes, watch me cry Look can't you see? I am the victim in this tragedy

Poetry

I am no different to you Darpan Gautam

I wish for my hunger to subside. I wish for my pain to cease. I wish to be loose of these heavy chains. I wish, I wish to be free. I am an African slave. I am no different to you. But to them I am an object, taken to be sold, to be sold to someone like you.

ØISIE -´Østerbro International School In English 52


Poetry Is it because of my colour, that I'm treated with so much virulence? Is it because of where I'm from that you have more rights than me? Is it because I'm poor, that you take me against my will? Or is it because you don't believe in freedom and equality? I wish not for my children to see this, these sights so abusive and cruel. I wish for them what most children have, No hunger, clothes and a school. But they see us as worthless, so they take what life we have. They make us work day in, day out, and pay us with a hand full of porridge. I hope I do not get ill, or I face a watery death. But sometimes I wonder, could death be better than this? In the bottom of my heart, there is a little spark of hope. A hope that one day this will end. That someone will stand up and make amends, That a leader will offer us a helping hand. I am an African slave. I am no different to you. But to them I am an object, taken to be sold, To be sold to someone like you.

Picture Story What are the birds thinking? Mesih Inal

ØISIE -´Østerbro International School In English 54


Picture Story We birds, we can think just like humans. Our brain might not be as dextrously as a human’s brain, but our imagination skills are superior to humans. So never see them us little and lumpish! We have our own imaginative world, just like humans, and I will be telling about our enigmatic world. We birds! We care for ourselves. We only think of our own surpassingly generation. Why should we care about yours? We always struggle! We believe that the birds will dominate the giant world one day. If we do, then we will be the first ones, making a placid world. Not a world comparable with humans. Not a world with warfare all the time. Not a world with millions of people dying from starvation. Something like this would on no occasion ever happened in the bird’s community. We are like a society helping each

other out. Never giving up even if it is death. All of us are compassionate. When someone needs succour, we help them. We are all democratic. Everybody has their self-determination and own rights. We don’t need a ruler when everybody knows how to take actions of him or herself. Polluting never happens. We are all helping the world by throwing seeds all over the surface of earth. So that trees can growth. None birds are a waste for this planet. Everybody has his or her own obligations. We are all special. We are all extensively helping you and this planet. So let the birds’ precept this marvellous world. Don’t permit the others to rule the world! ØISIE -´Østerbro International School In English 55

Winter Recipes How to: 1) Heat oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas. Toss the beef in seasoned flour. Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole. Fry the beef over a high heat until browned all over – it’s easiest to do this in batches. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Ingredients For the stew: 500g braising steaks, cut into bite-sized chunks 2 tbsp plain flour, seasoned with pepper and a little salt 2 tbsp olive oil 1 large onion, finely chopped 450g carrots, cut into chunks 2 large parsnips, cut into chunks

2) Add 2 tbsp water and the onion to the pan, stir well over a medium heat, scraping up the crusty bits from the bottom of the pan. Lower the heat and fry gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onions have softened. 3)Tip in the carrots, parsnips and bay leaf, then fry for 2 minutes more. Return the beef to the pan, stir in the tomato paste, wine if using, and stock, then bring to the boil. Cover and cook in the oven

Prep Stories In Prep class, children are learning to read and write. They have even learned how to write their first "book report"! Here are some examples of their work. The stories they read are leveled and the first book in Unit 1 has no words. We are now on Unit 9 and the current stories have 1-2 sentences on each page. Students were asked to listen to/read 6 stories and then choose their favorite part in their favorite story. They described their favorite part in their own words and were then able to copy the sentences, as they are still learning letter sounds and spelling at this stage. They did a super job!
