Erasmus+ Back to School Life corner
The Erasmus+ Back to School Life corner was set up at the language lobby in the second floor of the school. There are all the Erasmus+ partner countries and towns marked on the map. The project products and photos of visits were displayed around the map.
As a first Erasmus+ Back to School Life project the pupils prepared bookmarks in each partner country. And according to our project’s theme, the visual appearance of bookmarks had to be related to school and/or learning somehow. Then on the other side of the bookmark pupils wrote texts in English. Since the bookmarks were completed, they were laminated and the tassels were attached to the bookmarks.
The bookmarks were exchanged between representatives of different countries at a project meeting. The bookmarks received were displayed on the Erasmus+ notice board located in the school corridor on the second floor.
