    ONE EUROPE , MANY VOICES

    The project was a language development initiative, put forward by schools from Ireland, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany and Italy. The project was entitled “One Europe, Many Voices” and centred around Chris the puppet who travelled from partner country to partner country, exploring school life, home life and the national culture of each country involved. The project was primarily used to stimulate language learning initiatives among staff and cooperative language based project work among pupils. Consequently, staff were encouraged to acquire and improve upon their methodologies towards the teaching of language within the classroom and pupils improved their language skills. Furthermore, the project allowed for a deeper European dimension to learning as children explored life in other European countries.

  • The Puppet Chris visits the Grundschule Fleestedt

    i the beginning of the project the Grundschule Fleestedt recieved the puppet "Chris" in a parcel from the Irish Partner School. "Chris" stayed in our school for two weeks and during that time he attended all the classes and took part in all kinds of acitivities. The pupils documented what they experienced with Chris. Each class did a little presentation to show our Partner Schools their experience with Chris (f.ex. a diary, a poster, some pictures, fotos, a book to introduce our school.)
