our first meeting (02 – 09 – 17)
Last Wednesday we had our first Eramus meeting. The main points that we talked about were:
o A brief summary about the project.
o Some important facts about each school.
o Topics that we should prepare for the project.
o We decided that this year all the school is going to work some aspects about each country that appear in the project.
All the teacher’s team were in the meeting. Vanessa and I explained a power point presentation and Reme (the head of studies) clarified some doubts about the project.
The feelings were quite good and a big part of the teachers seemed to be interested on the project. Looking forward to have the next one on the 15 th September.
SECOND MEETING (15-9-2017)
First of all, the coordinators set out the general of work from this moment. Thus, after brainstorming with lots of creative ideas, we all worked out a quite realistic project. We decided plenty of topics.
To begin “the water” was an issue that satisfied us, because there are there are many internal subjects for the different subjects:
• Mathematics: capacity.
• Musical education: rain-sticks and making sound with water.
• Natural science: water cycle and mixtures.
• Kindergarten: states and qualities of water.
• Values education: the emergence of a water-saving culture.
• Physical education: personal hygiene, water sports, health…
• Social science: water transports, containers...
• Plastic and Visual Education: aquatic animals...
In this context, subject envisaged several options and other interesting topics for the new project: the universe, the human body, international food, but we do not specify issues.
Our school is immersed in a comprehensive health project so this issue, we also found it interesting. For this reason, feeding, knowledge of the body, emotions, exercise, physical education, personal hygiene, breathing and relaxation could be interesting issues.
Apart from this, from our point of view, we found it interesting to share various questions with other countries and schools. For example, template exchange about educational system of the different countries of the project. What time do they come in, types of corners in early childhood education. Advantages and disadvantages about Spanish or another language as a third language.
As you know, our centre is preferred for students with autism and our centre schools about 40 students with special educational needs with other disabilities and abilities. We have two teachers of hearing and language and two teachers of therapeutic pedagogy, so we would like to know how they treat diversity in different countries and how we could do it.
