To celebrate eTwinning Day our activity was uploaded on a padlet with so many others to showcase our event.
Our school has received once again the eTwinning School Label for the year 2021-22 . It is one of 11 Maltese schools which managed to do so. Well done to all those teachers and students involved in this year’s eTwinning projects.
Two videos showing the Year 5 and Year 6.2 working on the eTwinning project Countdown to the Tokyo Olympics 2021.
Last year’s Year 5 classes were awarded with the Best European Project during the Embed Digital Literacy Ceremony Awards which was held online.
Last year’s project won the national quality label and the European label and since the Olympics were not held due to the Covid 19, it was decided to continue with the project Countdown to Tokyo Olympics 2021.
As part of the eTwinning project, Countdown to the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020, the Year 5 children had a treasure hunt around our school. The Winter Olympics and the Paralympics were the main topics of the December challenge. Children were divided in groups. And each group had to look for 14 QR codes. Once scanned they had to work out a Maths investigation related to the Winter and Paralympic Games. Watch video ->
Year 5 teacher Mario Mifsud has attended a conference in Dublin, Ireland entitled ”From Virtual to Reality: Moving from eTwinning to Erasmus+ in schools” between the 28 and the 30 November 2019. During this conference, our school had the opportunity to create new connections between several European schools. A number of new partners were formed and already started working on a virtual eTwinning project. The aim is to then change this virtual project into a real life Erasmus + programme where the exchange between students and teachers to these new partner schools could be possible.
