I had so much fun dancing and discovering other Country's dances . I hope to
repeat and many many times this beautiful project!!!!
In the last 2 years we communicated in English with children of
other Nations, thanks to Comenius Project. We learned a game
called Kwadrant. We were divided into two teams, the white team
and the red team; the game consists on shoot the ball into the
opponent's court and try to make a point for each own team.
Another interesting thing was to draw the most beautiful places in
Turin, to make it known to our partners. We have been much
committed and we got a great result.
The activity, which we called "the tastiest," was when we prepared
with our teacher Nadia some recipes. Together we decided to
make apple pie; healthy and above all tasty. We have prepared
the recipes received from partners as well. We prepared
"sandwiches in the shape of boats." Very tasty! Another activity
(the most tiring) was a Polish dance: Krakowsk
After having learnt it, we had fun and we liked it so much that we
have revived it and the other dances during the show at the end
of the school year.
Finally, we have participated in the mini games with two very
entertaining games: tennis ball into a hoop and 600 m running.
When the teacher’s phone rang , our mate Patrizia always
exclaimed: "Is she Rosa or your daughter?". Because Rosa phoned
many time to ask about the activities
These two years of Comenius have been full of emotions and
discoveries. Thank you teacher Nadia for giving us this opportunity
and accompanied us in this project and we send greetings and
kisses to the children who are reading this text.
Happy holidays from Francesca O, Francesca R. Ingrid P, Shelley S,

In recent years we have participated in Comenius project and
found it very interesting and funny. We learnt many things and
discovered customs of other Countries.
We had fun dancing Kracowiak, which is a Polish dance, Tip Tap
( Tacco Punta) that is an Italian dance and an English dance. The
dances were filmed by the teacher and we been committed to
the maximum. We danced them again in presence of our
parents at the party at the end of the school year. In addition to
dancing, the last period of school, we took part in European
mini-Olympics among all the project partners. The games we
played are: the ball throw in a circle at a distance of 15 meters
and the race of 600 m.
At the beginning of this year we played a Polish game
"Kwadrant"; with other Countries . We exchanged various
recipes like "Mazurian sail boats", "Apple Pie" made by us.
We had a lot of fun.
During the project we were able to exchange cards about
Festivals in different languages, especially in English.
Our teacher has been in contact with the teacher Beata
(Poland) and we got to know her students directly. We
communicated through letters and connections via Skype, all in
Another important moment was when we met the foreign
teachers in our school in Salsasio. We sang some songs as
welcoming: "Hello friend", "We Are Friends together", "Happy
Days" and "Inno alla gioia" the European anthem. In the gym
we played Hit Ball involving our guests in the game.
Then the teachers went to visit various classes.
To those who came into our class we asked so many questions.
We loved this project and we would like to participate again

In recent years we have been participated in a project called
"Comenius". In this project we have collaborated with many
Country: Spain, England, Turkey, Poland, Bulgaria and us,
Italians. During the project we have learned so many things,
games, dances, songs and English.
Last year many teachers and professors came to visit our
school; all of us together welcomed them with songs. Some
teachers then came to our class and asked us our names in
English, they asked questions and we answered. Also we have
asked questions to them. In these years we have had the
opportunity to know our European friends and their culture
through exchanging video dances, Festival songs, traditional
games and interviews to local sport heroes ...
Through the contact between a teacher from Poland, Beata,
and our dear teacher Nadia, who met each other during the
meetings of all teachers involved in the project, we also had
the opportunity to write and receive letters from children and
we met also them via Skype.
Comenius has been a great enrichment for us
