Welcome to ART ON THE MOVE project --------------------------

This is a COMENIUS PROJECT, in which we are involved 5 schools from different countries:
SPAIN, POLAND, FINLAND, ENGLAND AND BULGARY!
Let's know each of us a little more:


SPAIN

Our school name is:

RAMON MACIP - DOLORS GRANÉS


L'escola d'Espanya té alumnes des de 3 fins a 12 anys. La nostra idea és realitzar aquest projecte implicant a tots els nens i mestres de l'escola, així com a tots els pares que vulguin participar i aportar el seu granet de sorra:)
El projecte sorgeix a partir del treball realitzat en anys anteriors amb l'eTwinning i, sobretot, a rel d'observar la millora en la motivació dels nostres alumnes des del moment de treballar l'idioma estranger com una eina de comunicació amb nens d'altres països i no tant sols com una matèria més dins del curriculum. El nostre primer soci va ser l'escola de la Joanna de Polònia i, des de llavors, no hem volgut perdre el contacte a causa de la seva gran dedicació i gran entesa entre els mestres. Actualment alumnes de 3r i 6è de l'escola estan realitzant algun projecte eTwinning amb aquest centre. Com no, per a nosaltres és el soci més actiu i el que més ha aportat fins ara en el nostre Comenius.

The Spanish school has children from 3 to 12 years old. It’s a quite well structured school and we will run the project with the whole school, without selected students; they are from standard classes, with different knowledge and different motivation. The social class where parents come is lower middle, being factory workers and little time to take care of, or help children. There are some pupils with specific needs and about 10% of migrants’ students. There are also few pupils at risk of social exclusion, but we would like to involve all students in the same way.
With the Polish school we have been cooperating during the last two years, by the eTwinning platform. Our results are excellent (3 European Quality labels and also 1 Spanish National Prize). We would like to share our experience with our other members, as it is their first European project. eTwinning platform helped us to find our new partners. Our school is also running an “Experimental Plan of Foreign Languages”, which we started last September 2008.

ENGLAND

Our school name is:

St Vincent's Catholic Primary School


The English school has children from 3 to 11 years old. All the students aged 7 to 11 are beginning to learn Spanish, but we are still just starting. This is our first Comenius project and we are looking forward to getting to know a lot more about other schools and countries. St Vincent's is in the centre of Birmingham. and is very multi-cultural. We have many students from Pakistan, the Carribean, and Africa and also a few from Eastern Europe. Our students speak many languages including French, Urdu, Portuguese and a number of African languages. Most of our students do not have the opportunity to travel and we are looking forward to bringing Europe into our classrooms!

Nazwa naszej szkoły to Zespół Szkół nr 2 w Czerwionce-Leszczynach. Nasza szkoła składa się właściwie z 2 szkół. Pod okiem jednego dyrektora funkcjonują 2 szkoły: Szkoła Podstawowa oraz Gimnazjum. W naszej szkole jest około 200 uczniów w Gimnazjum oraz około 300 uczniów w Szkole Podstawowej. W szkole uczy około 30 nauczycieli. Nasza szkoła jest bardzo miłym miejscem z przyjemną atmosferą. Biorąc pod uwagę projekty europejskie od jakichś 2-3 lat uczestniczymy w programie e-twinning. Naszym pierwszym, wspaniałym partnerem była szkoła Cristiny. Od tego czasu wielu nauczycieli zainteresowało się podobnymi projektami i teraz są integralną częścią naszej szkoły i cieszą się wielkim powodzeniem zarówno wśród uczniów jak i nauczycieli. Uczestniczyliśmy również w projekcie Comenius ze szkołą włoską co było dla nas bardzo miłym i ciekawym doświadczeniem.
