eTwinning Project
San Ġorġ Preca College, Valletta Primary

Our Year 4 students are taking their eTwinning project to the next level! This time, they've sent a special gift to their partner schools: an in-house book written by one of our past students, all in English!

We're so proud of their creativity and initiative in sharing this book with students from other countries. It's a fantastic way to bridge cultures and foster a love of reading!

Special thanks to our eTwinning ambassador Ms Melrose Borg Muscat and our HoD Digital Literacy and Transversal Skills Ms Tania Formosa

The students of year 4.4 of Mr. Roger took part in an eTwinning Project called 'Wellbeing Heroes'. They had an activity where they had to decipher colour coded bracelets. These bracelet came from from our partners. Each bracelet had a positive message related to one's wellbeing and the students had to decipher what message their bracelet had. Likewise, our students made a number of Bracelets which were sent to our partners and the foreign students needed to decipher our own positive messages. Well done 4.4.

Our year 3s together with students from Latvia and Turkey collaborated on a project entitled ‘United by the Sea’.

During today’s special assembly they shared some of the activities they carried out and highlighted the web 2.0 tools used. Through this project, students not only enhanced their knowledge about the sea and oceans but also learnt how to use information and communication technology in a meaningful way, and making the most of 21st-century skills.

During the month of May, Year 5.3 had the pleasure of welcoming Polish students who have been our pen pals since last December. It was their first visit to Malta and their first time interacting with our students in person.

On the first day, we engaged in various ice-breaker games, introduced them to traditional Maltese games, and participated in a treasure hunt around the school to help them familiarise with our school. The Polish students also shared one of their traditional games in their language, fostering a fun and friendly atmosphere.

The second day was dedicated to cultural exchange; we watched a video about Maltese traditional food, tasted the famous Maltese cheeselet (ġbejniet), and collaboratively made a ftira, a popular local dish.

The Polish students also participated in our Music lesson, adding to the enriching experience. We are excited for more activities together in the coming days and deepening our newfound friendships.

Maths -Tails - St Thomas More College, M'Xlokk Primary

St Thomas More College, M’Xlokk Primary is participating in s multi-lateral Maths and Literacy project based on the story 365 Penguins by Jean-Luc Fromental.This project is being tackled through different subjects throughout the scholastic year. During this collaboration, each country will send a wandering penguin that will travel to each participating school.

The Year 3 and 5 students prepared their penguin called Peppinu to travel to their eTwinning partner schools with a passport and online travel journal. They also presented him to all 4 foreign schools during a video conference while getting to know the other penguins who will be visiting their school in the coming months.

Another activity was done by the Year 5 students in the school grounds. They had a Maths trail with Actionbound and also a Treasure Hunt to see where Chilly, the little penguin with blue feet from the story 365 Penguins, travelled to. This activity continued on the following day during a literacy lesson where the children created postcards for Chilly about the country he's visiting. Great thanks go to Ms. Morris (HOD Maths), Ms Gatt (HOD DDLTS) and Ms Spiteri (Support Teacher DDLTS) for the creation and organization of this activity.

Back in October 2021, I was invited to take part in this project alongside 10 Turkish educators.  The project aim was to support young children’s muscle development through enjoyable and age-appropriate activities. In parallel to these simple activities, we aimed to support our students’ Cognitive, Language, Social and Emotional development areas.  Regular meetings between us teachers, made this project a successful one as we all got to discuss in real time the tasks to do and the challenges that one might encounter. This helped us all to adapt the activities as needed depending on our student’s ages and capabilities. The project was a success as the expected results were achieved! Our students worked well together, supported and learned from each other. Looking forward for the next one!

 

Sharing with you a link to a coding activity video done with my students:

What’s your story?

The project gave our students the chance to develop creativity and combine the English language with art, expressing their special but diverse skills and talents. Improving language skills, especially using English as a common tool of communication was a major objective.

Cooperative learning was used to help students share their thoughts and ideas. Discussing European stories and carrying out literacy activities using digital tools increased students’ interest in the English language. It helped to develop their cognitive skills and key competences.

The students created a variety of writings including comics, fake Instagram profiles, different story endings, Bio poems, interviews with characters from the stories, Escape rooms, story cubes and newspaper articles among others. They used various digital tools to carry out the literacy activities including WordArt, Pixton / Storyboard, Flipgrid, Linoit, Padlet, Genially (to create Escape rooms), ReadWriteThink, Storyjumper, Author Premium, Vocaroo, Fodey, Author Premium and Learning Apps.  Students participated with enthusiasm. In transnational groups, students chose a participating country and a topic and searched for information about it. They then presented this work on our countries on a Padlet map.

eTwinning Project : Beat the Boredom
IMG_20210528_092942.jpg

This scholastic year we embarked on a journey through classical fables and fictional tales together with partners from Malta, Poland, Italy, Turkey and Germany. The project came to an end after a whole year of monthly planning, implementations and evaluations in which we turned stories into various activities. 

 

Monthly, the chosen stories were challenged with various tasks in which as a class we investigated through play and s.t.e.a.m education. Taking slots and pieces from the stories to highlight our learning outcomes was smooth to all partners because there was consistent collaboration even during school lock downs. 

 

From the start the aim of this project was to ensure that activities could be done anywhere and by anyone, there the pandemic did not hinder our learning. This is why on Friday 28th May 2021, we decided to meet up online through Twinspace Live events in order to celebrate together the end of this successful project we all have put our minds and hearts into. While meeting online, each representative country made flags to wave and use throughout the event. During the event we showed the students our collaborative video which we did as a whole team, the ebook and our padlet. The excitement was indeed visible in everyone's faces and a heartwarming moment when students refer to each other as "my friends". 

 

Before hanging up on our call, each participant joined in with singing and dancing to do a last celebration together as part of our etwinning journey.
