Enjoying learning about other countries
Annie Asgard, the Irish coordinator of the Erasmus Plus HAPPENS Project from the Claddagh National School was invited to attend an international conference on Health Promotion Participatory Research Projects at the National University of Ireland in Galway in May 2017. She shared the Erasmus Plus HAPPENS Project with researchers from around the world as well as learned about participatory research projects taking place.
Here you can see the slideshow she presented to the conference. Dr. Siobhan O’Higgins, of NUIG, also attended the Claddagh National School Europe Day on May 9th.
This is a school project related to Erasmus happens about wellbeing at school. We have implemented it for students with fewer opportunities (SEN students) in order to give them a chance to improve relationships in their classrooms.
All the students in the street of the Battipaglia for the Erasmus day. All the associations of the territory were invited and we disseminated the results of our projects and the Erasmus project of all the schools of Battipaglia.
All the three schools in Battipaglia involved in Erasmus Projects together for the Europe day.
Teachers were given an explanation of the Gymnastics Scheme used in our Welsh partner school where infant aged children are told a story where animals are used to illustrate various gymnastics poses and actions to help them to understand how to use their bodies in different ways. The resources given to our school were shared with the staff and in particular, with the infant class teachers, who will begin to incorporate these new ideas into the lessons.
Anna Parkinson shared the fun transition activities she learned at the Cardiff LTTA with the staff. As you can see, these brain games and lesson transition activities went over a bomb with the staff who love to learn something they can use the very next day with their students.
In the game seen in the photos, the staff must try to remove their finger from the person beside them while simultaneously trying to grab the finger of the person on the other side of them! We’re not sure the staff are up for this level of eye-hand coordination on a Monday morning after a long January but we did our best and we’re certain the children will love this and the other games we learned from Ms. Parkinson!
