Update on European Project
Our European project is going well and all the group members are now busy messaging one another. The logo design competition is complete and most of the group have now voted for their favourite design. The winning logo will be revealed shortly and added to our project journal.
Design a Logo
This week, all children involved in the project will design a logo. Designs will then be numbered and uploaded onto the competition site on Etwinning. Students from all participating countries will then vote for their favourite design. The winning design will be used for our project.
1: Each student can vote only once.
2: Students can't vote for his/her own logo picture.
3: 15 students vote for each partner school.
Etwinning Project Autumn 2018
My Favourite Game
We are pleased to announce that our new European project My Favourite Game has been endorsed by the National Support Service on the Etwinning site.
Over the course of the term, we will be working on a project with three other schools in Europe - Spain, Poland and Slovenia. Our aim is to share our favourite games, giving clear instructions of each, so that each participating school will be able to play and then review the games. All work will be uploaded and shared on the Etwinning site. We will finish with a book of our favourite games that will hopefully be played for many years to come.
What we plan to do
1. Students record a short video showing their school and introducing themselves.
2. Students in small groups choose their favourite game and make a poster using all kinds of supports: paper, pictures, drawings, Powerpoint...explaining how to play (instructions, number of players, material needed, time, rules and personal information about them).
3. Students record a short video showing how to play the game.
4. Share posters and videos with school partners.
5. Introduce new games in our PE lessons.
6. Give a review about the games on PADLET.
7. Christmas Postcards.
- To know how different/similar schools are in other European countries

Travelling Teddy Bear
19th March 2014
Mrs North has been accepted to join a group of nine other European schools to work on a new, exciting project entitled ‘Travelling Teddy Bear to Discover Other European Schools’. The project involves adopting a teddy bear mascot, which travels from one country to another, keeping a diary and blog about each school and the activities that take place.
Mrs North will be in regular contact with teachers from the various schools, which include: Netherlands, Turkey, Romania, Croatia, Estonia, Poland and Slovakia.
Throughout the project, children at St Mary’s will discover lots of interesting facts about the different countries and the daily lives of the children who live there.
Malaga-February Half term 2014
10th Feb 2014
This was a fabulous week and I have returned to school with new ideas and greater confidence in my Spanish speaking skills. I have now developed a link with the school I visited, and children in Year 2 have already written to their new Spanish friends. We look forward to receiving letters from them.
