Please read about our eTwinning projects, which are listed here. At Steeton School, we often work with our international partners in cross-curricular projects. We believe that this both broadens and deepens our curriculum, enabling our pupils to share with, and learn from, other children around the world. We also often learn some words in a new language during our work!
Our recent international eTwinning projects include:
A Year around Europe. This is our current eTwinning project. Schools in Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Italy, Moldova, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK will share our work through the year. We plan to hold a video call with our partner schools. We will be exchanging letters and cards as part of this project.
Songs and rhymes 2 Year 2 pupils are working with schools in Cyprus, France and Ukraine to share songs and rhymes.
Christmas Connections Through Art 2017 in which we have been working with schools in Croatia, Estonia, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Moldova, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine. Our Year 2 class researched the artist L S Lowry to make cards inspired by his work and we held a video call with our neighbouring school in Eastburn. All the schools in the project exchanged cards inspired by artists and this led to art gallery displays in all the project schools! The project was awarded a Highly Commended at the national prize ceremony in June 2018!
Christmas Connections 2016 working with other local schools and schools in Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and Ukraine.
