Butterflies across Europe

Butterflies are beautiful and some fly great distances across Europe. In this project, children will create their own paper butterfly and write messages for children in the partner schools. The message will tell the children something about what the butterfly has seen. The children will receive butterflies from each of the partner schools. Finally one butterfly will travel to each of the partner schools and what it sees in each country will be recorded on the shared webspace through photographs. It's progress can be monitored throughout the life of the project.

Hello partners,

Yesterday I was the first day back to work in kindergarten.
Today we sent our butterflies on their journey.
Fly to Poland , Greece, Norway, Spain, France, Great Britain and Turkey.
The mice children were very happy with the many post they have received.
We have pinned all the butterflies in the group room to the wall.
We have a map of Europe so that the children can see where the butterflies have departed.
In the photo you see the butterflies on the wall.

Butterflies of Friendship

Posted by: Dave Sherratt

Butterflies of Friendship is a single butterfly that comes to your school. It has very short and simple messages of friendship from the other schools. You should talk with your children and decide what you will write, then send it to the next school on the list.

This is the list. If you wish to join the list, you should add your own name or ask me. Well friends - we begin Friday 19th November 2010.

Butterflies have arrived

Posted by: Dave Sherratt

It is Tuesday morning and the school is filled with colourful butterflies of every shape and colour that have travelled from all over Europe to our little school. I would like to thank all the teachers and children involved. I will put some photographs of our butterflies on the eTwinning webspace for you to see.

Many thanks,

Dave
