Poznań British International School – St. Michael School (Malta)


eTwinning

eTwinning offers a platform for staff (teachers, head teachers, librarians, etc.), working in a school in one of the European countries involved, to communicate, collaborate, develop projects, share and, in short, feel and be part of the most exciting learning community in Europe.

The eTwinning action promotes school collaboration in Europe through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) by providing support, tools and services for schools.

TRIP TO THE FARA PARISH CHURCH AND TO THE IMPERIAL CASTLE (CULTURE CENTRE) POZNAŃ

On the 12th November the children from Class 6 went on a trip to the Fara parish church and to the Imperial Castle (Culture Centre). This visit was part of the eTwinning project that is being organised with St. Michael’s School in Malta. The pupils recorded and collected visual and tactile information about these two historical buildings. They made a number of simple line drawings, explored the detail of surface decoration, took photos and measurements. A similar activity will also be organised by St. Michael’s School in Malta. The following step will be to exchange the material gathered. Eventually, our pupil will design a small prototype of a historical site or building in Malta, while the Maltese pupils will do the same for a building in Poznań.
