Day 4 Erasmus+ project meeting - Spain

Thursday in Cartagena started with class 5B and Teacher Lola, talking about what they considered to be symbols of being British. They worked in pairs to find 32 symbols in a picture that they then discussed as a class, then they sorted some symbol cards to decide on the 5 that they felt typified British to them. There were lots of votes for the Union Flag, the Royal Family and tea, but very few for bad weather which was a relief!

After that, 5A and B tried to talk via Skype with children in Elefsina in Greece. The connection wasn't very good but they managed to talk to each other and we could see each other. At breaktime Señora Stevens and Mrs Harding went out into the playground to see the children playing traditional games including El Pañuelo. And after break, Señora Stevens sneaked into 2B to see them playing some clapping games which she videoed. She'll share them when she gets back to the UK. And Mrs harding had a go at using a potter's wheel.

All the teachers shared something about their school after that. Señora Stevens talked about how defining being British is tricky as we all have different ideas of what it means and feels like, shared how we have no outsiders at our school, valuing diversity and explained that whilst we talk about 'British values' they shouldreally be universal values. Mrs Harding talked about how we do this using examples from our Class Learning Journeys which really interested the other teachers.

After a teachers' meeting at which the teachers planned the next phase of the project, they all went to Murcia where they looked around the town, attended a concert in an amazingly opulent room, then had dinner in the very exclusive, very stylish and very posh Real Casino. It was a very full day and a very late night!
