The newest eTwinning project in 3rd class is now gaining momentum as pupils are planning their cards that they will send to the partner schools. We are partnered with ten other schools for this project and pupils will work in groups of three of four to make a card and write a little about our school to include with each card. They are also preparing a Christmas Banner that will be sent via the eTwinning Platform. Part of the project also involves telling the partner schools about CHristmas traditions in Ireland and we in turn will learn of the Christmas Traditions in other European countries...Busy times!

 

 

Postcards have been arriving from around Europe. It is very exciting to receive each new card and to learn a little about each class in our eTwinning project.

We have already strated working on this year's eTwinning projects - 3rd class have signed up for two projects so far: A Postcard to Go Far & Christmas Cards Project 2018. In the first project, a group of 33 schools from throughout Europe will exchange postcards with each other. This is sure to be very exciting for the pupils - learning about children & their schools from around Europe as well as getting the opportunity to tell those children about our school and Ireland. Pupils have already been busy using their Atlases to find the flags of the countries participating in the project.

Exciting times in 3rd class...pupils were busy writing a postcard to each of the 37 participant schools in their eTwinning project "Postcards From Afar". Pupils made flags of each of the participating countries to decorate the eTwinning notice board and there has been great excitement when each new card arrives. 

 

 

3rd class used their Green Screen to record their St. Patrick's Day greetings for their eTwinning project "Discovering Europe Through Children's Eyes".
