PROJECT TITLE: Traditional clapping games as a cultural bridge.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
This project aims to bring traditional clapping games to the forefront of our curriculum by offering a different approach to lessons allowing them to be more interesting and stimulating for the pupils. Children love interactive songs and through this project we will learn coordination, body awareness, rhythm and teamwork. We will work music, art, values, PE in a crosscurriculum way and English, as the means of communication between teachers and pupils. We will focus on the use of ICT tools to improve and advance in New Technologies.
The main objectives of this project are learning the language of sound, our and others traditional clapping games and to collaborate each other in European mix teams.
