Christmas / New Year Postcard Activity

Students have designed beautiful cards for Christmas and New Year. They have written nice messages to each other. They have used graphics to create their cards. The aim was to make them use their creative skills in drawing and design. To make them aware of Christmas and New Year traditions, and to make them practise the target language. Especially the feeling of receiving cards from our partner school friends was great!

PEACE TRAIN

With the PEACE TRAIN activity we are trying to reinforce the importance of PEACE in the world and make children aware of reacting against global issues such as predujice, discrimination, racizm and how important it is to live in harmony and mutual love. There are no boundaries for tolerance and respect to each other as long as we accept that there is one WORLD being the home for ALL OF US and LIFE is so precious and it should be lived PEACEFULLY and HAPPILY..

In the second year of our project our Peace Train has again started travelling around... and is delivering happines and joy during its journey ... As Cat Stevens has put it forward in his beautiful song PEACE TRAIN...

Dreaming about the WORLD as ONE
And we believe it could be..
Someday it's going to come..



With the ride of the PEACE TRAIN from country to country... The whole WORLD PEACE will combine, and LIFE will be super FINE!

ROMANIAN STUDENTS VISITED TURKEY

Romanian students have visited their Turkish partner school from 22 to 28 April 2017. They also had the chance to be guests in the world's biggest Children' Festival held on the 23 April, which is celebrated throughout Turkey. Turkish students hosted their friends and made them learn about the Turkish culture. They visited famous attractions such as Atatürk's Mausoleum, saw the sharks in the big Aquarium and had fun playing bowling. The Romanian students joined lessons and experienced a typical 'Turkish' school day.
The farewell moments were very emotional since both parties had built up a big friendship and nobody wanted to leave...
Hands were waving goodbye but their friendship will stay forever...




SONGS

All partner schools have shared their traditional children songs. Teachers have taught the songs to students and now we are proud to say that we can sing in 6 different languages. The song lyrics and musical notes are collected by our Romanian partners in one songs book, which our teachers will be able to use as a course material in the following years. We thank you students and our Romanian friends for their outstanding work!




GAMES

Children love to play games. And we know that games include a lot of drama, rithym, singing and sometimes dancing.. all are forms of ART. Play provides children with efficient time to learn and improve the skills they need in the future. The role of physical education and play in emotional and social improvement of children concludes that physical activities and play truly improve their own social characteristics. That's why we are making attempts to reinforce the impact of games as well on our students in this project..
All countries shared their traditional children games. Students learnt how to play them. Our Macedonian partners compiled all the lesson plans and instructions of the games and made us a beautiful games booklet with a DVD. Now, we witness our students having fun at the playground playing these traditional children games..




FOLK TALE


MULTILINGUAL DICTIONARY

Language is one important part of cultural heritage. That’s why we have covered some activities on language in our project. We have produced a dictionary in which we have basic words of MUSIC, ARTS and GAMES in the six languages. Our Bulgarian friends have made the beautiful pictures for the words. Our MULTILINGUAL PICTURE DICTIONARY is now ready for use…




RECIPE BOOK

Culture means food, and one of the best ways to introduce a country’s culture is to visit the kitchens. But we have added a spoonful of ART in the recipes and agreed that the taste is much better….










BIG CHEFS at Work

Our students tried the recipes and experienced the delightfulness of cooking traditional dishes and tasting them.




'All About US' E-Magazine

Our students shared their letters to get to know each other and to see what is different in their cultures as well as what they have in common.
