Our visit to Turkey

MEETING IN IZMIR (TURKEY) on PhotoPeach


What a wonderful visit we have just had to Turkey.
We were looked after so well and really united as a group. The visit began with a day in school where we joined in with English lessons and the Turkish children dramatised their information on hot air balloons. I think we all enjoyed seeing ourselves portrayed by one of the children and there was so much detail in their play.

 After we watched the plays we had a tour of the school and went in to watch English lessons being taught. In the afternoon we had a meeting with the National Education Director. He made us feel very welcome.

 On Tuesday, all the teachers shared their presentations with the other school teachers. These were very detailed and the pupils had obviously worked very hard to create them. Some schools had also brought their scrap books to show as well, these were very detailed about the different types of transport – and the authors!
 During the meeting we discussed that every school has made a Comenius corner, some of the larger schools have made two corners so that all the children in the school could regularly see the information.
These will develop during the project to include more detail about the specific schools involved and the specific activities undertaken.

The blog is now live and provides us with a useful tool to keep up to date with what is happening in each school. We can now upload presentations and dramatisations to the blog, and information about Comenius events that have been taking place within the schools.

 We now have a lovely mascot and a logo, which schools need to include on completed pieces of work.
 All the schools are enjoying videoconferences with other schools within the project. This is a fabulous way for the children to see who else is involved within the project.
 The next round of videoconferences will take place before the end of March.

 Schools are now preparing a list of words on their transport type to translate into English. This list will be translated in to all 6 languages of the project schools.
They are also preparing dramatisations from the information that they received from the other schools about different transport types.

 All the teachers involved said how much they were enjoying being involved in the project, but, more importantly, how much the children were getting out of the experience, with finding out about different transport types and the video conferencing which allowed them to feel connected to the project schools.
 We had a very educational trip to Turkey and enjoyed the cultural experiences we undertook. We are all looking forward to the next trip, which will be in Sicily.
