Escuela 7 D.E. 8 - Jornada del British Council



SCHOOL Nº 7 -8TH DISTRICT

“NIÑAS DE AYOHUMA”

Last year we were invited to join the Northern Irish-Argentine cluster together with other schools in BA (School Nº 18-21st District and School Nº 1- 12th District). We exchanged letters, crafts and other things with our partner schools in Northern Ireland. They are learning Spanish and we are studying English at school.

The aims of the project are:

1. To develop pupils’ understanding of other cultures, lifestyles and interests of their peers in another country (Northern Ireland and Argentina)

2. To develop learning communities between pupils and teachers to facilitate the sharing of good practice.

3. To establish a curriculum based link with schools in Argentina / Northern Ireland

4. To enhance collaborative work in the classroom and among school partners in Argentina / Northern Ireland

5. To enrich pupils’ learning experiences and skills across the curriculum (ICT, Communication and Languages, PDMU, Around the World, The Arts)

6. To develop a cross cultural and cross curricular dimension to education in our cluster schools.

7. To celebrate and share our project with parents and the local community.

So far, we have swaped introductory letters, researched their own culture and identified symbols, food, coins, stamps, art and music that represent their country. In return, they have also researched something about our country and our traditions. Throughout the course of the project pupils from both cultures have shared their countries’ festivals, customs and festivities. Besides, pupils have compared their traditional music and popular dances of their countries and exchanged DVDs and CDS of their own dance and music.

Last June we got together trying to share everything we prepared to be sent to Northern Ireland. We sang some traditional songs from Soledad, Fito Paez and narrated a traditional legend from Northern Ireland from our Narrator Group we have at school. Children really enjoyed the experience and eager to see what they will get in return from their mates in Northern Ireland.
