Comenius - Multilateral partnership

8th International meeting

Venue: : Primary school, Widnes, Velká Británie

               Primary school, Llandudno, Wales, Velká Británie

Dates : 7th October – 11th October 2013

   Mobility description: This year we started the regular visits within Comenius project by a trip to Great Britain. We were invited by one basic school in Widnes, England and one in Llandudno, Wales. From my point of view the management of meeting was perfect. Not only we were wholeheartedly welcomed by the staff and children, but there was also taken a good care of us. We had a great chance to find out about atmosphere in partnership schools – ways of teaching, traditions and customs, as well as test our communication skills in English. We could compare our school systems and share our ideas and experiences in teaching. Again, we could taste typical English school meals in canteens, which was a great experience. We were showed round by several generous pupils. Others prepared a welcome programme in both schools showing the studentstalents in singing or playing instruments. Moreover, both schools had presentations about each of partnership countries. Teachers from each state co-worked with English pupils in given tasks. Czech teachers of course talked mainly about the Czech Republic. English kids had a lot of questions and were really communicative.

On one of the common meetings we discussed future tasks such as events diary, questioners, web pages, sport activities, project on “food and sport in arts”, and communication among pupils. More details were spent on planning the meetings in Sweden, Turkey, and final Olympic games in Greece. In the rest of the time we visited historical points of interest such as King Edward I. Castle in Conwy. We sighted port city Liverpool, beautiful small town Chester and seaport Llandudno. In the evenings we had a lot of fun with our English friends. In overall, we had a great time and brought home lots of great impressions. Not only we explored another piece of the world but also we made new friends.

We thank a lot to all teachers and pupils from Great Britain for their effort to make us feel at home.

On the first day of stay in the Czech Republic, hosts took care of the health of their arrived guests and took everyone to the swimming pool, where colourful slides enjoyed the greatest interest.

In the afternoon everyone went for the five-kilometre walk to the nearby spa town - Podebrady in which the castle and the beautiful fountain are located. Kolin is situated near the Prague, therefore our host partner organised the trip around this unusual capital city.

Pupils and teachers were really surprised during the touring. A dress which everyone had to put on, enjoyed the great interest.
