Hi again friends!
This year we are repeating the project with our colleagues from the Czech Republic.

And this is class 5B:
This is how we are preparing and practicing with our boxes in the Txec Republic:
Here you have the videos from SPAIN:
And the videos from the CZECH REPUBLIC:
This year we’re repeating the activity My box of life with our friends from Turkey. The school is called Ali Durmaz Ortaokulu and it’s in Bursa.
Here you have some pictures of the group:
And this is the group 5B from our school who is sharing the activity with them:
We decided together who would be recorded by assessing each other using a grid with 3 items for the text, the voice and the pronuntiation (from 1 to 5):
And this is the final result…
And after all the wonderful work of our students, the teachers could finally meet in Braga! And pupils could exchange some wonderful presents.
This project has been created to work on the pupils’ identity and diversity. Through their boxes of life, the 5th level students showed briefly which are their origins, who they are and who they want to be in the future.
They had to bring 3 or 4 objects to put into their boxes:
- A family picture.
- Something typical from their countries (for immigrant families).
- An object which is important for them for a special reason.
- Something which represents what they want to be in the future.
Once they had their boxes ready, we put everything in common within the class, using Catalan and/or Spanish so that they could feel confident about their explanations.
The next step was using a very simple guide to translate the texts into English. We did it in the English class and then they had 2 weeks to “study” their texts.
After that, we recorded them one by one, talking and showing the objects in front of the camera and we uploaded the videos in Youtube.
The final stage of the project was a video interchange with a French school in Brest which had also followed these steps.
It’s been a very emotive project which has engaged and motivated pupils to talk about themselves, use English and know about the others. We’ll surely repeat it with other classes and levels!
Here we have the videos of our friends from the school Paul Langevin in Brest. Good job!
