Etwinning project

Do you know Etwinning?

Etwinning is part of a European Programme which promotes inter-school partnership. The schools which become partners share an internet based class project. Last year we started an etwinning project with an English school from Gloucestershire. The name of our partner school is Chosen Hill School.

The Spanish teacher at Chosen Hill School is called Miss Elena Mai Evans. (Apparently "Elena" is the name of a Welsh queen). She visited our school last year and we organized and discussed our class project. Our students exchanged emails and posters about our cities and our countries.

Here you can an example of the English students' work:

This year we have started exchanging letters with our 12 year old students.
Listen to this song while you're working.

  • 1st ESO bilingual: You have a penpal from Chosen Hill School. Tell us about your penpal, his/her description, his/her hobbies, his/her likes, routines or anything you would like to say.

  • Find on THIS map where Gloucester is and name a city or town which is situated next to it.

Our language assistants

Thanks to the fact that we have a Bilingual Section at school we have three language assistants this year. They come from different countries and we are very happy to learn different things from them. Here you have them:

    • In your opinion, what are the advantages of having a language assistant in class?

    • What are you learning from them?

    • Write any positive comments you would like to share with your classmates.

    Thank you
