Joint Comenius evening of the English and the French projects

Our WIKI

The OUR VOICES ACROSS EUROPE projects has two pillars: folk music and pop music.
A WIKI online space was created to record the history of pop music, written by the students.  Through this wiki we will start focusing on one of the two pillars of our project, which is pop rock music. We aim to focus on this kind of music in the decades from 1950′s to 2000′s, both in the UK and in the USA as well as at a local level. This knowledge will enable our students to reflect upon their own history and social life.

We are all working in our WIKI and now our focus is on pop rock music in the decades from 1950’s to 1960’s both at a local level and in the UK / USA.

SPRING PARCEL

We were really excited and we waited for the parcel eagerly. We were really looking forward to opening it on Tuesday. The contents were the following: every student received a postcard. They were beautiful and creative. We got sweets too, of course. We ate Polish milk chocolate. Also there was a door decoration, a small sprinkler, water pistols and a sheep-shaped sweet with a typical Polish taste and we got a hand-made booklet about the Polish Easter.

Mi az olaszoknak küldtünk tavaszi csomagot, nekünk pedig Lengyelországból jött az ajándék. Nagyon vártuk már, hogy megérkezzen. A következőket tartalmazta:

  • névre szóló képeslap – gyönyörűen, kreatívan elkészítve;
  • édesség  –  megkóstolhattuk a lengyel tejcsokoládét;
  • ajtódísz;
  • pici locsoló vízi pisztolyok;
