Xmas cards 2016

Students of class I H prepared Christmas cards together with the teachers of English and Art to be sent to their European friends of the eTwinning project "Let's celebrate the European Day of Languages with us!"
They described some Italian Christmas traditions and created beautiful cards, they also wrote greetings both in Italian and in English. They also got cards from their partners from Poland, Portugal, Ukraine, Romania, Slovenia and Czech Republic and could read greetings in English and in the mother tongues of their new friends.

Here is a short video with some photos of the cards. As soon as we are back to school we will display the cards in class as well.

1 smile makes 2 smiles: a new logo!

The last days before Christmas holidays students of class IG voted for the best logo of the etwinning project "1 smile makes 2 smiles".
As the partners teachers decided not to let the students vote for the loges created by themselves we voted for all the logos except for the Italian ones.
We looked at them on the twinspace and each student chose 3 logos to vote for.

Here are some pics from this activity.

In all the partner schools of this project students and teachers did the same and this is the winning logo:


to the Turkish students and thanks a lot for this wonderful logo that represents us all!
