Eramus + Project
We are part of an Erasmus + Project entitled ‘neuroNesting3.0’
We are working with partner schools across Europe to support our teaching and learning in the school. The project has six member schools which include schools from Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Spain and Portugal.
The project runs for two years and will focus on themes linked to the impact that humans have had on the environment especially affecting birds and their migration routes. We will be looking at multiple intelligences when doing joint projects. Each school is sharing their work in a variety of ways using media and IT to develop links. There are many opportunities for the teachers at Ash to learn about new strategies and approaches in teaching and learning for the children in the primary school setting. The children are involved in working together and there will hopefully be an opportunity for some of the older pupils to visit another school to meet with pupils from the various countries once we are clear of COVID. The children will act as ambassadors representing Ash Church of England Primary School working and playing with their new friends.
One of the first activities which we did together was to design a logo for the project. Everyone sent their entries and then voted for the one we felt represented the project the best. A Greek entry was selected and is seen above.
Members of the teaching team may have the opportunity to visit some of the schools and to lead presentations on the work we are doing at Ash. It is a very exciting experience for adults and children alike and we are especially looking forward to the pupil mobilities when they are able to commence.
