Grand Kids' Grandparents

There are numerous reasons that grandparents are special and so important in children's lives. Through this project we want to explore the grand grandparent - grandchild relationships. Grandparents will be invited to our classrooms and they will share their skills, tales, stories, hobbies and traditions. Pupils and their grandparents will have a great opportunity to spend time together, learn from each other – grandparents how to use modern technology, children find out more about culture and history. Moreover, grandparents will teach their grandchildren some useful things and stay in touch with their grandchildren’s school –teachers and schoolmates. AIMS Pupils will: • learn about old skills and hobbies • find out about the life in the past time • improve their ICT skills • improve English skills • develop story writing • find out about the similarities and differences between the cultures • share the richness of their own cultures • be able to prepare questionnaire • use Internet tools to create and publish their works e.g crosswords, quizzes, picture trials, puzzle makers, blabberize, ebook, storymaker, etc. • encourage their grandparents to use ICT • cooperate with pupils from other country • cooperate with their grandparents Tasks: Invite Grandparets to the class to: - celebrate Grandparents’ Day - make things together e.g decorations - to listen to their stories - to interview - to share their skills, experiences - to introduce them a new technology Childern will: - draw portraits of their grandparents - design houses for their grandparents - interview their grandparents (using camcorder, microphone) - make things with their grandparents e.g. cook, bake cakes, make decorations in order to learn from them - create albums (photos, memories, pictures) - write poems, stories and illustrate them - create interactive crosswords, puzzles, quizzes, e-books, etc. - make and share pictures, photos, videos - play with their grandparents Expected results: Family ties will be strengthen.

We all love making colletions. Our grandparents aslo collected things - what strange things they collected!
In March we intervied our grandparents. It was so nice to listen to their memories from the past. Our grandparents tought us a lot of intetesting things e.g. Easter decorations.
The old photos are amazing - they are mostly black and white!
We listened to the nice story retold by Dylan's Grandmother and made some nice illustrations. 
We had busy time but we have learnt a lot!
