Let's Go Cultural! - A 'welcoming' task

letsgo

This week in assembly we talked about how we can welcome our Erasmus+ visitors to school in March (9th-13th) and here are two ways that children can make sure we offer the best Whitehouse Common welcome we can!


1. SINGING  We rehearsed our two songs and the children sounded really good. With a little more rehearsal, particularly of our special welcome song, we'll sound positively angelic, and I defy anyone NOT to be impressed!

The lyrics and a link to the music for our Welcome song is here. The Hello song has been shared previously but here's the karaoke version so the children can see if they really have it memorised!

2. DRAWING   We also talked about how the chidlren in Spain had welcomed Mrs Harding, Señora Stevens and all the other visitors with smiles and flag waving. The Language Leaders suggested that children might have a bit of time over half term to have a go at making some Welcome posters or flags that we could wave and display to make our visitors from Austria, Greece, Spain and Turkey feel welcome. Images to help are at the start of the post and here's how to say 'Welcome' in the various languages of our project! 

German (Austria) - Willkommen

Spain - Bienvenido

Greece - Καλώς Ορίσατε

Turkish - Hoş geldiniz

 [The project logo hasn't come out very well on the image at the top but it is on each post on this blog so there are better versions to copy!]

 

Let's go cultural - A visit to La Casa del Folclore.

final logoDuring the meeting in Cartagena, Mrs Harding and Señora Stevens along with the teachers from the other participating schools were taken to visit the Casa del Folclore (the House of Folklore) which is a special building where culture and folklore is celebrated and safeguarded for the future. They saw artefacts from Cartagena's history as well as typical decoration, historical pictures and agricultural implements. They were also treated to a demonstration of traditional music and dance.

 

 Hope you enjoy this snapshot of the visit!

 

Let's go cultural - Clapping games at CEP Antonio de Ulloa

final logo

During the meeting in Cartagena, Señora Stevens was beckoned into a classroom where the children were desperate to share some clapping rhymes and games in Spanish. Some are traditional and some were adapted by the children. Señora Stevens was inspired and you may see and hear some of them in a class or playground near you!

Here's a video to inspire you! Which is your favourite?

 

Let's go cultural - Romans and Carthaginians

final logoLet's Go Cultural! is all about sharing our own culture and learning about the culture of our partner schools, enjoying new experiences and celebrating our similarities and differences.

The Festival of the Romans and Carthaginians happens in Cartagena every September and commemorates the 2nd Punic Wars over 2200 years ago! (You can find out more here.)

During the meeting in Cartagena, the children of CEP Antonio de Ulloa shared their work on the festival and staged a procession for the visitors dressed as Romans and Carthaginians complete with music and drumming! 

Here's a video to give you a taste!

 

 

Let's go cultural - Welcome to Cartagena!

final logoHere's a video of how the visiting teachers were welcomed at CEP Antonio de Ulloa on Day 1 of the first transnational project meeting for Let's Go Cultural! 

Our Spanish partners have set the bar high!

Whitehouse Common - we're the next hosts so we need to match and even better this! 

 

 

Thank you - Gracias - Danke - υχαpιστώ - Teşekkür ederiz

open eveThank you to all those who popped into the Think Tank last Tuesday during Parents' Evening to find out about our Erasmus+ project. It was lovely to meet parents and be able to share details of Let's Go Cultural! including plans for the upcoming visit of our partners to Whitehouse Common. It was also great to hear that children have been going home and talking about our partners in Spain, Greece, Turkey and Austria, and to share some videos from the first transnational meeting held in Cartagena. 

Apologies that the opportunity was not offered on Wednesday as well; unfortunately Señora Stevens is elsewhere on Wednesdays. In the following posts, you can see the videos that were shared. Additonally, should you want to ask questions and/or find out more, Señora Stevens is usually happy to talk to you before or after school on Tuesdays or Thursdays, or via a message to the school office.
