Card trees!

Classes I G and I H of the school "L. Da Vinci . O. Nucula" in Terni celebrated the European Day of Languages within two etwinning projects as explained in this post some weeks ago.

To display the cards we got from the other European countries we decided not to create a cardboard poster but we wanted to be more creative and ... here are our "Card trees"

Talking about Pride and Prejudice and Jane Asuten

3rd year students studied the characteristics of the the Romanticism and of the novel at that time. They also studied the novel of manners and read some pages of "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. Some days ago they watched the movie too and now it's the turn of English! As Jane Austen was English and her novels are very popular around the world still nowadays here is a padlet with some activities for my students. They can cary out the tasks I prepared for them and also add some info writing a post on their own.
So ... let's enjoy Jane Austen and her works!

Happy European Day Of Languages 2017!

The school year has started again and we are already involved in etwinning projects!
To start with we have two projects in which we celebrate the European Day of languages.

Students of class I G of "L. Da Vinci - O. Nucula" school are involved in an etwinning project called "Teenagers in Europe" and they will work with students from Finland.

Here is a map of the project.

Students will:
- improve their English
- use English to communicate with their peers
- work in teams
- improve their technical skills
- get to know other EU countries and cultures
- broaden their horizons through realizing we are part of a bigger community: the UE.

To start with they wrote postcards using both English and Italian to celebrate the European Day of Languages

and they received cards from their Finnish friends from Karstula.

This project will last until the end of the school year and we will post more in the following weeks.

Students of class I H are involved in another etwinning project called "Let's promote diversity - the European Day of Languages" and they will work with students from a lot of countries in Europe.

Here is a map with all the schools.

Students will:
- use English to communicate with their peers
- be aware of the Europe’s rich linguistic diversity
- listen to the sounds of the alphabet of other European languages
- learn about other European countries in a fun way. 

Here are the postcards they wrote

Here are the cards from the other countries, we will get some more in a few days. 

This will be a short project and will soon be finished. Students of this class will join another etwinning project next month.

Making FIlms, Making Friends: the end!

The school year has already finished in Italy and the last days of school all the students of the partner schools voted for the best logo within the etwinning project "Making FIlms, Making Friends"  and 

the winner is ...

to Giulia Gallina 
class III G "L. Da Vinci - O. Nucula" school in Terni.

The last activity our students have been involved in was "Stories from and for films" which saw students working in international groups. A group of students created the beginning of a story starting from the ending of one of their favourite film, then the other students from the other groups continued the story until the end. As students from Norway, Portugal and France are still going to school some of the stories haven't got an ending yet so ... start reading the stories and come back to this blog in a while to read the end! 

Here are the links to read the stories.
