Field trip

On 31th of March we went to Niedrāju-Pilkas bog to have an adventure - bogshoeing. We went there with 25 students and 4 teachers. We divided students into 6 groups and they had worksheets to fill during our trip. Our guide Kristaps helped us to study a peat bank and collect peat samples. Our trip was 3,5 hours long and during that time we walked 6 kilometers. Although we were walking on “floating soil” it was really cool experience and we are hoping to find us wearing bogshoes again.

Conclusion of the first year


ITALY

eTwinning and tasks there are really interesting, but it is hard to use it with phones.

2. Presentation of the Project poster

On our poster there are flags, cranberries, tablets, crane and Erasmus+ logo. The author of the idea is the 5th grade student Rasmus. It represents our project idea – to connect nature and IT.

3. Questionnaires for students and teachers.

This year both questionnaires were created by Estonian teachers. We decided that Italy is responsible for creating questionnaires about the 2nd project year for students and teachers. It will be created with the help of www.mice-t.net/mice.html . Those will be on eTwinning and from each school up to 20 students are required to fill it out.


4. Introducing the Project for the second year

Rehearsing and performing plays

Rehearsing and performing plays will improve students´ communication, creative, presentation and confidence skills. Students will prepare to perform plays in English about nature (up to 5 minutes). Best play of every school will be presented to others by using IT (Skype).

Charity sale

The aim is to give our students the experience of entrepreneurship, building confidence and learning about your strengths through teamwork, developing critical thinking and problem solving, improving communication skills, getting some knowledge of risk bearing.
