Our European signpost, shown above, shows the European partner schools we have worked with over the last few years; it is sited near our school entrance.
Our links with schools across Europe allows for interaction between schools to promote understanding of other cultures and enhances a wide European perspective.
In September 2016 we started a new project with partner schools in Europe entitled Arts and Traditions in Modern Settings. Our partners for this new project were from Romania, Turkey, Estonia, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Spain, Greece, Sweden, Poland and France.
Staff from all the schools visit one another to learn about the culture of the country and approaches to teaching, learning a new art technique to bring back to school and teach to all of the children.
Children also undertake joint projects and tasks to share ideas and forge new friendships. They use video conferencing, website videos, letters and songs to communicate with each other.
Below, you will find pictures and information about each country the teacher's visited.
The project has now finished and a website was created by a University in Burdur, Turkey, which shows all of the art techniques we learned in each country. Here is the link to the website.
