Information about the project

The children learn English at schools but they have got only a little chance to use it in real situations. We provide an opportunity to the children to know other children from different countries and take parts in real communication, work together through wide range of activities. They can make friends with children in their age and share their ideas and experiences in different topic.

Aims

Our goals are to find partners from other countries, to inform the parents about the project.
The children will be able to: 
• introduce themselves, their interests to each other
• make a poster/ Prezi from their home town
• send a postcard for Christmas
• share their nativity play
• read a story (Tiddler, the story-telling fish by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler)
• make a board game to share with each other
• introduce a traditional game and teach the rules and play together by video chat
• say Goodbye

Work Process

• At the beginning of October: Children will send a card about themselves "All about me" 
• In November: They make a poster/PPT/Prezi to introduce their home town and their school
• At the beginning of December: They send a postcard and a small present (bookmark, Chirtmas decoration, etc.) and share their nativity play (if they make a performance).
• In February: The teachers make an activity to the story and send it to the other participants. In the class each teacher will use the others activities too during working with the story. After reading the children make their own board game that is based on the story and share with each other to play with it.
• In April: The children make a video and show how to play a traditional game in their mother tongue. They share a text and the song if it is necessary. The learners will learns the songs/rhymes at the original language and send it back to show it how does it work.
• In May: They say farewell to each other. They make a collage from the activities that they took in part during the year.

Expected Results

• They make friends and use English as the tool of communication.
• They learn to respect each other country and nation.
• They learn from other children's life and their traditions. 
• They open their minds to know more about the countries where the partners live.
