Enjoy watching as much as we did recording it!! :)

Finland, the country of green gold and thousands of lakes

In the Erasmus+ project, we work on the Earth theme. The pupils are divaded into two groups. One examines Finland`s green gold, forests and another topic is thousands of lakes.

The group are mixed with 3-6-classes students (aged between 9-12 years old). This is one of our school´s multi-disciplinary learning set. The new curriculum sets up to 1-2 multi-disciplinary learning set per semester.

At the same time we teachers observe the pupils´skills. We use the S.A.T. (School Evaluation Tool)
is the main tool of this Erasmus+ project.

This time, the theme is earth. We have three countries in this Erasmus project which are located around the Baltic Sea. For this reason, Poland, Lithuania and Finland have decided to cooperate.
Each country will focus more on 1-2 topics which are typical of the country.  Poland: Mountains and hills, Lithuania: Flat land and Finland: Forrests and thousands of lakes.

During the week, we could enjoy Art Workshops where other subjects were included as well: Maths and Arts, ICTs were combined with music and a wide range of artistic tasks and many more activities that gave us the opportunity to experience daily life of this school of artists.

We also attended a class about the creation of jewelery with elements of nature. It was gorgeous and extremely original. Congratulations!

We would like to thank you to the amazing team of Romanian team who made this movility even more incredible.
