Lights, Camera, Action!

The schools involved in the "Travelling Towards Multicultural Europe" project are scheduled to video-conference with one another at the end of this week. Hopefully, all partner schools will give us an update about what was discussed and share with us the information that they gathered. 

The English and Northern Irish schools are having some minor technical difficulties at the moment, but are hoping to video-conference with one another next week instead, fingers crossed. 

Year 6 pupils at Stanley Primary School in Blackpool have nevertheless been busy today preparing questions to ask their counterparts at Botanic Primary School in Belfast. They were keen to find out what time school in Belfast starts and finishes and what lessons they have. They also wanted to know what Botanic's school uniform looks like. They were curious about whether the Northern Irish children have the same hobbies as they do and whether they play the same games. 

Hopefully, they will be able to remedy the technical issues and get to ask their questions very soon! 

In the meanwhile, they have posted their questions off to the Northern Irish school, via "snail mail". 

Here is the envelope (complete with stickers) and some examples of the letters we sent:


  1. Hello everyone,
    Spanish students have been very busy too, preparing some information about our school and Oviedo, our town. They want to know more things about Turkish and Greek students. They are excited waiting for the video-conference.
    Our partners have told us they are very happy as well. It's going to be an amazing experience.

  2. Hi,
    We are going to have a conference in 5 minutes! Keep your fingers crossed!;-) We hope there won't be any technical problems.:)

    1. Teachers and students from Poland - Siedlin. This is our first video-conference with Italian students.

  3. Students and teachers from Turkey and Spain have had a successful video-conference as well.
    A great experience!
