LET'S EXCHANGE CHRISTMAS CARDS AWARD
Moderation comments: “Congratulations on being awarded an eTwinning Quality Label for your project "Let's Exchange Christmas Cards". It is great to see a simple and effective collaborative project with partners which has broadened horizons and perspectives early on, contributing to language learning through authentic material from partner schools, as well as to the R.E. and I.T. curriculum. It is a great way to inspire learning and bring awareness of other cultures and countries to the classroom. We particularly enjoyed the range of pictures and cards shared by all the partners on the twinspace. Achieving this award is a public statement of your commitment to quality, high levels of good practice and to European collaboration"
PLAYGROUND FUN AWARD
Mrs Culshaw (Modern Languages Leader) and the children launched the project, ‘Playground Fun - a European Day of Languages’. This was a project to share information about the activities and games that our children play in the school playground. They discovered the games they have in common with their European neighbours and which activities are specific to their own culture and country. This was a brilliant topic - the children immersed themselves in high quality international learning. We enjoyed this project because we felt that we were part of a learning community in Europe. It was good to open up our classroom and share what we do in our school. Seeing the children learn from each other was a very rewarding experience.
What the judges said:
“Congratulations on your Quality Label for your project, "Playground Fun - a European Day of Languages project". A great choice of topic, clearly linked to the curriculum, and inspiring for pupils beyond what was originally planned. The project illustrates the impact eTwinning can have on motivating pupils for learning. The PDF produced is an excellent display of the pupils' shared experience and learning. Well done.”
