The project partners

Santísima Trinidad School (Salamanca-Spain) -the coordinator of the project- is now fully engaged with the elaboration of an integrated plan to promote plurilingualism (Spanish, English, French and German) in our community within the framework of European objectives in this field. In parallel with this we are developing a Bilingual Programme (Spanish-English) that involves the teaching and learning of certain disciplines through the medium of these two languages. The school is also trying to garner a reputation of innovation for its creative education methods. For example our primary students have recently started using PLAYMOBIL toys, LEGO blocks and SCHLEICH animal figures in the classroom, where they are turning out a serious educational tool. In this way the students become very active in the learning process and they get to use their hands instead of just sitting behind their desks. But it’s not all about bricks and toys. Our secondary students have just started the path of inquiry-based learning through the organization of a Science Fair. Moreover children’s literature in English is a customary didactic tool in our EFL classes for primary students since authentic materials are highly appraised by our teachers. 

The other four project partners are:

Ynystawe Primary School (Swansea - United Kingdom)

Erich Kästner Grundschule (Gera - Germany)

Społeczna Szkoła Podstawowa (Byalistok - Poland)

Institution Sainte-Thérèse Les Cordeliers (Clermont-Ferrand - France)

I.C.S. Ignoto Militi (Saronno - Italy)
