We want to encourage our pupils to learn independently inside and out of the classroom so we have created these fun challenge cards! Each card explains how to play a game or activity and every card is different. Some challenges require a group of people to play, others can be completed independently. Photographs and a ‘star rating’ help pupils to choose suitable challenges for their ability and environment. Each school created 10 challenge cards so we now have a pack of 50 fun outdoor activities to try in our schools!
The 27th. and 28th. of September Run, jump, learn! had a Transnational Project Meeting in Gijón, Spain. During the meeting, we did the „Atalia School Tour“, we were received by the local authorities in the Town Hall and we did a Spanish inmersion activity.
Our project was in the printed version of our local newspaper, El Comercio.
Run, jump, learn! partner schools had a photo competition recently. The children took photos of each other moving. Each photo had to have at least three children moving. Each school then chose and rewarded the school winners. Here are the winning photos for you to enjoy!
In our school we try to celebrate cultural events where perhaps Spain and the UK overlap. Pancake Day or „Martes de Carnaval“ is a good example. Pacakes or „Frixuelos“ (as they are called in Asturias) make that link. Pancake races are something we have been doing for at least the past 15 years in the school and is popular in the UK.
Last Friday we ran the much loved Pancake Races. Fun was had by all and the pancakes were very yummy yummy yummy!
Do you eat something special for Carnival?
