Our great partnership started on the 1st September 2015!
After many hours of hard work and a lot of documents to be filled, we finally have it: the partnership in Erasmus + : Let`s Meet Together…
The partner group is amazing: from far south of Europe: Spain , then Turkey, Hungary, Poland, Lithuania and Norway in the north. The schools around Europe who want to work for 3 years!
The first meeting was in Poland – the coordinating country. All schools came on 15th October to Częstochowa , to Zespół Szkół nr 2 to start the first part of project: “ Let`s Meet Together... In our regions. The meeting finished on 21st October according to the schedule.
We had a great fun together while getting to know each other, working on the common glossary and learning different languages of partner countries. We are so different and so similar! All schools prepared some national dances and songs to be performed. We could dance and sing together.
There were also many hours of hard work. There were lessons for teachers with the usage of active training methods and some lessons for students to work on common products of the project and to get to know better. Later the students had the possibility to work manually making: candles, paper and clay sculptures.
We also had the possibility to visit the regions and some important cities like Kraków and Warsaw. We had a tour guide with a quiz about Częstochowa, the host city.
On Monday we worked hard to show the partner groups our regions, schools and neighbourhood and to explain how we live and what is special about our schools and towns. The schools showed their films and slideshows to learn about their countries. We learnt a lot. The teachers decided about details connected with the future work in the project and some precise dates of the next meetings.
On Tuesday the president of Częstochowa met the project group and respected our great work and cooperation. Finally the host families prepared the farewell dinner to show their hospitality. We hope that all visitors were satisfied with the meeting. WE had a lot of great memories and thousands of photos!
We will see soon at the videoconference on 26th November!
It was so nice to see the after- meeting- slideshows concerning the visit in Poland.
Especially it was a great fun because we visited the same places, did the same activities but our slideshows showed different aspects of the visitJ
On the 26th November 2015 we had the first international videoconference. We used skype. It was a great success. We could see and hear each other. The students answered some questions concerning the work on the slideshows and films about their cities and schools. They were well prepared and their opinions seemed to be thoughtful and precious for our cooperation. It was the evaluation of our project. This time we wanted to get to know students` point of view.
It was also very moving to see each other again. We feel that we miss each other!
Next videoconference within our project!
On 11th February 2016 we had the second possibility to meet via Internet during the international videoconference. All partner schools took part in the meeting. We were discussing the pros and cons of the project activities. We were trying to assess what the students like and don`t like about some products and tasks we are obliged to do. The students gave funny answers to some questions and were well prepared to explain their point of view. For the Polish students it was nice to hear other partner schools` opinions about the meeting in Poland. They could learn a lot about that how their country was perceived by other European citizens.
What`s more, it was surprising how the Valentine`s Day is differently assessed by our students from different project countries. Unfortunately, we couldn`t have the proper discussion because of some technical problems. Some countries didn`t have the correct vision of all partner schools and some schools weren’t` heard clearly which were a little confusing. The good point was that some of the students who were taking part in the videoconference ( from Spain, Norway and Poland) will meet again at the visit in Hungary in May. We are so excited about the meeting in Kiskunfélegyházi Móra Ferenc Gimnázium! “Let`s Meet Together… at music”, this timeJ.
There are some photos below…
Before the Easter Time in our school the students had prepared a lot of projects connected with this holiday. They had the choice in the form of telling about Easter Traditions in Poland. Most of them prepared the posters which showed the Easter Traditions like paining the eggs, Wet Monday or the basket full of food which the Polish carry to the church to be sacrified and to be eaten at Holy Saturday morning. We liked the posters a lot and the teachers prepared a special boards with the posters to be seen by parents and other people who enter the main school corridor. Finally, some students decided to make some albums and slideshows about Easter Traditions as well, so we have downloaded them into the files of e-twinning twin space. We have also included the photos of the posters to be assessed by all partners.
Europe Day 2016
On the 23rd of May there took place the Europe Day in Polish school. We started with the presentation of the slideshow and a film from the meeting in Hungary which took place from 8th to 16th May in Hungary within Erasmus + project: Let`s Meet Together…
The students and teachers ( S. Cyran and B. Żurawiecka ) who participated in the meeting described the visit, what they had done, what aspects of the project had been realized, what kind of activities they had attended. The students explained that the main purpose of the meeting was : Music. They explained while showing the films and the slideshow that they had prepared a short performance with folk songs and dances and that all countries had similar performance to teach each other their national cultures. They students and teachers were very satisfied with the meeting in Hungary. The next visit will be in Lithuania.

The presentation after the meeting in Lithuania within the project Erasmus +
On Friday 4th of November 2016 our students and teachers, who took part at the Learning/Teaching/Training Activities at Lithuania within the project Erasmus + “Let`s Meet Together….”, presented their slideshows about this meeting in front of all students and teachers of our school at the gym. The headmaster praised the students, who had taken part at the L/T/T activities for their abilities to communicate in English. He explained that the only way to have the conversation during the meeting was to speak English because all partner schools came from countries like Norway, Lithuania, Turkey, Spain and Hungary and we could not speak their difficult languages. The only possible way of communication was to speak English. The headmaster urged all students and teachers from the school to learn English and to involve in all project Erasmus + activities. Thus the students and teachers will be able to take part in the L/T/T activities within the project Erasmus + in the following years. Our students: Mateusz Biernat, Kacper Blukacz, Karolina Weran, Aleksandra Dawid I Katarzyna Sitarz told other students and teachers about the lessons and works they participated at the L/T/T activities. They told about the partner school in Lithuania, the city Druskiennikai, the products they prepared at the meeting and they explained what they had learnt. At the end the students showed their photo reportage about the chocolate production because they took part in the lesson about this topic.

The presentation after the meeting in Norway within the project Erasmus +
W poniedziałek 22 maja w naszej szkole obchodzony był Dzień Europy. Uczniowie z klas starszych szkoły podstawowej i gimnazjum zaprezentowali ulubione utwory muzyki europejskiej w formie Mini Playback Show. Królowała muzyka hiszpańska i Alvaro Soler z Moniką Lewczuk. Doskonale się bawiliśmy, ponieważ uczniowie przebrali się za ulubionych wykonawców w bardzo ciekawy sposób. Prezentacje były urozmaicone układami tanecznymi, które czasem były na bardzo wysokim poziomie. Po konkursie Mini Playback Show grupa uczniów, która uczestniczyła w wymianie międzynarodowej w ramach realizowanego w naszej szkole projektu Erasmus + „Let`s Meet Together” zaprezentowała pokaz slajdów z wizyty w szkole partnerskiej w Norwegii. Uczniowie bardzo ciekawie opowiedzieli o wizycie, czego się nauczyli i jakie wnioski wyciągnęli z pobyt w Bergen. Przede wszystkim zachęcali uczniów naszej szkoły do nauki języka angielskiego, który stanowi podstawę komunikacji podczas pobytu w szkołach partnerskich. Uczniowie przybliżyli czego dotyczy projekt i zaprezentowali działania, które podejmowali podczas spotkania w Norwegii. Prezentacja bardzo podobała się uczniom naszej szkoły, ponieważ mieli możliwość poznać całkiem inny system edukacji i inny kraj z relacji swoich rówieśników.
On Monday 22nd of May 2017 in our school we celebrated the Day of Europe. The students of Primary and Secondary School showed their favourite pieces of European music in the form of Mini Playback Show. The most popular was the Spanish music, to be honest : Alvaro Soler and Monika Lewczuk. We had a great time because the students dressed up as their favourite singers in a very funny way. The songs interpretations were spiced up by the dance choreography at a very high level sometimes. After the competition of Mini Playback Show, the students who took part in the international exchange within the Erasmus + project “Let`s Meet Together…”realized in our school, showed the slideshow presentation of the meeting in the partner school in Norway. The students described the visit in a very interesting way and told us about their conclusions after their stay at Bergen. First of all, they encouraged the students of our school to learn English whose knowledge is crucial to communicate during the partner school exchange. The students explained the idea of the project and told about the activities participated in, during their stay in Norway. The school students liked the presentation very much because they could find out about a different system of education and another country from their peers` point of view.
