European Day of Languages – 26 September 2012

0

The European Day of Languages has been celebrated every year since 2001 on 26 September, as an initiative of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg.

Throughout Europe, 800 million Europeans represented in the Council of Europe’s 47 member states are encouraged to learn more languages, at any age, in and out of school. Being convinced that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of our continent, the Council of Europe promotes plurilingualism in the whole of Europe.

For the day, a range of events is organised across Europe: activities for and with children, television and radio programmes, language classes and conferences.

In our school, to celebrate this day, we’ve learnt more about the languages of our Comenius partners, Poland, Sweden and Slovakia, and we made some pancards with the words hello in these languages. Here you have our 5th and 6th graders showing up the pancards!!! (slovakian – polish – swedish – catalan)

 

 

El Dia Europeu de les Llengües s’ha celebrat cada any des de 2001, el 26 de setembre, com una iniciativa del Consell d’Europa a Estrasburg.

A tot Europa, 800 milions d’europeus representats en el Consell dels Estats d’Europa 47 membres són encoratjats a aprendre més idiomes, a qualsevol edat, dins i fora de l’escola. Convençut que la diversitat lingüística és una eina per aconseguir una major comprensió intercultural i un element clau en la rica herència cultural del nostre continent, el Consell d’Europa promou el plurilingüisme en el conjunt d’Europa.

Durant el dia, un seguit d’esdeveniments que s’organitzaran a tot Europa: activitats per i amb els nens, la televisió i programes de ràdio, classes d’idiomes i conferències.

A la nostra escola, amb motiu d’aquest dia, hem après més sobre les llengües dels països del nostre projecte Comènius, Polònia, Suècia i Eslovàquia. Hem fet unes pancartes amb les diferents maneres de dir hola de cadascun d’aquests països. Aquí teniu els nostres alumnes de 5è i 6è mostrant les pancartes!!! (Eslovac, Polonès, suec i català)

eTwinning project: Our digital fairytale

1

 

This year with the 5th grade students, we have been working in two different eTwinning projects. eTwinning is an educational platform where  schools from all over Europe get in touch and are able to get started in different projects of their interests.

“Our digital fairytale” is a project started by our school and  the 1st primary school of Pefki in Athens (Greece). The main aim was to work together on turning a chosen fairytale into a video presentation. The video presentation contains scanned pupils‘ pictures and a soundtrack in both languages and English. We chose the Aesop´s fable, The Lion and the Mouse, written more than 2500 years ago. Aesop (620-564 BC) was a fabulist or story teller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop’s fables. Here we show you some of the pictures of our project’s corner.

Finally have finished the video that is now published on the Internet. Here you have the link to the video: Enjoy it!!!

JUST GOOD FRIENDS

0

Last 26th April, our year 5 and 6 students went to the theatre to see the play “Just good friends”, based on the typical TV sitcom and full of warm humour, original music and songs with just the right mix of dramatic moments. The three central characters Polly, Paul and Peter are three close friends and who all have their personal dreams of becoming famous. Unfortunately each person’s dream tends to intrude on the other two. That’s one problem.

The other problem is the letter. Polly finds a love letter that she thinks is from … well that’s the problem. Who wrote it? And what happens to the friendship when love rears its confusing head…

They had so much fun!!!!
