Working Together & Learning Together

Age: 10,11
Project Year: 2010-11

Collaborative work on the theme of poetry

The children learn about creating poems (acrostics, limericks etc) on various themes, individually, within groups in their own school and unltimatley in collaboration with the rest of their group in their partner school. They also shared information about themselves and their lives using the pupil profile templates in the wiki and via the forums using themed questions such as school uniforms, holidays etc. Video conferencing was also used to share information and to work on their presentation and communication skills.


Our Face to Face meeting took place on March 29th in Lisnaskea Share Centre. The children were matched up in their groups and took part in a wide range of team activties such as Acid Lake, The Rope Course, The Night Walk and Giant Tangram among others. They got to know their partner children from their group and thoroughly enjoyed the highly skilled instructors. Even the weather agreed with us!
