Happy 5th Birthday eTwinning!
Today, 5th May, marks the 5th birthday of eTwinning.
The birthday was celebrated across Europe with balloon releases, cake eating and national events.
In the UK we were encouraged to plant blue and yellow flowers – the colours of the European Union and also the eTwinning logo.
At Whitehouse Common, 1DS marked the event in several ways.
1. we watched the eTwinning videos below – the children (aged 5-6) completely understood the message of the first clip – ‘eTwinning makes lessons more fun. The kids looked much happier when the eTwinning man arrived.’ And they were highly amused by all the ball throwing in the second!
2. we made paper doll chains to symbolise people holding hands as friends – surprisingly they all successfully cut out their dolls in a chain (although we had one set of decapitated dolls!)
3. we coloured in flowers in blue and yellow for a display
4. and best of all, we planted some marigolds and a blueish daisy in the dragon planter.
So – Happy Birthday eTwinning from WCPS!
