The partnership will focus on the
involvement of pupils, teachers and parents from five countries across Europe
in creative arts activities sport and outdoor education. Pupils and staff will
have the opportunity to travel to their partner schools and experience each
others lives and cultures. Individual school visits will be made and host
schools will plan activities that reinforce the objectives of our project. At
the beginning and end of the project we will meet together to cement
friendships and create enduring partnerships.
Classes from partner schools
will be twinned with each other and pupils will communicate and collaborate on
joint projects that will improve their IT, reading and writing skills and their
social and environmental awareness. They will exchange letters, post cards, e
mails, flags and artefacts and through the use of SKYPE they will share
regional and class celebrations. Students with limited communication skills
will be included through the use of signs and symbols.
Those pupils who are not
directly involved in the Comenius project will also have the opportunity to
experience and increase their awareness of European lives and cultures. We have
planned a range of activities and projects that will strengthen the European
dimension of our respective school’s curriculum and have a positive impact on
teaching and learning.
