Italian teachers and students wish you a Christmas full of happiness, serenity and peace. Happy new year! we are so exited to continue to build the Europe with you.
See you soon Euroknitters!
This morning the students of IC Kennedy gathered in the school canteen for the official presentation of the Euroknitters Project. The coordinator, Martina Coliva, illustrated the different steps of the project, telling the students about the various activities in which they will take part in the next two years.
Videos about the four partner countries were shown to curious students, who then watched the promotional video and the presentation of the TV channel and were enthusiastic to see their mates acting as speakers and reporters.
When Martina talked about the mobilities, the students were very excited at the idea of travelling to a foreign country, meeting friends speaking other languages and having the opportunity to be with them at home and at school during a whole week.
During the presentation, it was made clear that everybody, not only the children who are going to travel abroad, will have an active part in the project, as actors in the theatre play, as correspondents in the news, as promoters of their country. Each student will learn some Greek, Estonian, Portuguese and Spanish, and everybody will be able to improve their knowledge of the English language.
Students and teachers started to make the first edition of “Euroknitters TVchannel” that will be ready before the end of December. The TVchannel’s directress, the newsman, the newswoman in the studio and the reporters introduced themselves and the topics too: news about Italy and Reggio Emilia, school events, sports and the weather forecast too! “Thanks, it was a fantastic experience!”…these the words of one of the students involved in the video: collaboration, good spirits, enthusiasm…are the ingredients that will characterize this work during the next months. Enjoy!
