P4x have now completed their first eTwinning project; ‘Christmas’ with our partner school in Aleksandrów, Poland. We have made our own online profile and found out a bit more about the Polish children’s hobbies and interests. We have learned a few facts about Poland too.
We then exchanged PowerPoints about how we celebrate Christmas in Scotland. We found out lots of interesting information about Christmas in Poland by viewing their fantastic PowerPoint. There were lots of similarities but also quite a few differences. We have communicated with the Polish school using a special blog, e-mail and also through the post.
The children from both schools designed and made Christmas cards and decorations to send to one another to say Merry Christmas. Unfortunately, the snow delayed their arrival slightly so we had a nice Christmas package arriving for us in January! The Polish children have designed beautiful Christmas cards, which they have written both in English and Polish, and also some fantastic decorations.
If you would like to find out more about the project, ask somebody from p4x or come and see the display in our class area and on the special work wall.
The final part of this project was to write to the children to say a big thank you for all of their hard work. We have really enjoyed the project and are hoping to continue the partnership and begin a new project together very soon.
P4x have now moved on to our exciting ‘Scotland in the Future’ topic where we are very busy trying to help Dr Who with a special challenge he has given us. We will let you know how we get on next time…
