    Overview of project:

    This year-long project will have environmental issues as its key theme. Classes will work together to suggest ways to reduce our environmental impact in our schools and everyday lives.  The project will facilitate collaborative international peer learning.

    The project will include a Christmas card exchange, using recycled materials. We also plan to make environmentally friendly Christmas decorations. Over the course of the year, we will share tips and suggestions about how to ‘tread more lightly on the Earth.’

    We will also share information about our schools, towns and countries. Partners will share pictures and information about events in their school throughout the year, particularly when these have an environmental theme.  The project will include the promotion of healthy habits - more exercise and healthy, seasonal food.

    We will learn some of each others’ languages through the project.  eSafety will be a key theme throughout, including sharing activities for Safer Internet Day and help for pupils and families using the Twinspace.
