SKYPE CONNECTIONS

HOSPITAL SCHOOL

Our pupils at the Children Hospital Schools were involved in 3 Skype connections with the Primary School in Denia.  During the contacts we exchanged useful information about our countries, our education system, our common activities and plans about the project. Our students created a quiz game about Italian food and the Spanish pupils interacted with them.

Our students loved chatting to the Spanish pupils. In the beginning they considered it as a challenging activity but later they gained self-confidence, realized that they had improved their communicative skills and had learnt a lot of things about Spain.

FOOD IN CARVED STONE

The tour was focused on Parma’s major attraction: food. The students, exploring the historical buildings overlooking the Cathedral Square in Parma, found out the origins of our most important specialities: cheese, ham and wine.

The students enjoyed  spending a few hours in the Cathedral square exploring the relationship between art and food and they learnt to see the monuments in a new way.

Exchange of seeds

ne of the many common activities of the project is called Exchange of seed. The idea of this common activity is to exchange a selected number of seeds between the countries and plant them across borders to see if something will grow. We strongly believe that the seed from Sweden and Norway will grow in Italy and Spain, but we are curious if the opposite will happen. The exchange took place in Bergen when they arranged the mobility for students in September 2017. The Mayor of Bergen was attending the Exchange of seed. The new plants will symbolize both the growth of the project and all the new friendship across borders. The different schools brought different seed into the exchange.

Kaland skole: mixed carrots, cabbage, squash.

Pou de la Muntanya: rosemary, lavender.

Istituto Comprensivo “G. Ferrarri”: tomato, rocket.

Lugnviksskolan: watercress, peas, basil.
