Junior School Erasmus Club


The Junior School Erasmus Club had an exciting delivery from Mrs Coontz last week. Our well travelled Postcard Project returned home after its 7,000km journey around the Erasmus Partner Schools. Back in August, eight 6-sectioned postcards were started on different themes: patterns, inventions, flags, animals, landmarks, flowers, poems and weather. The children filmed an instruction video to accompany the cards, inviting children from each country to complete a section before sending it on to the next one: France, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia and Germany. Our senior Erasmus pupils delivered the postcards to St. Dominique in September. Since then they have been ‘lost’ in transit twice and could no doubt tell some tales if they were able! Don’t they look fabulous? They are even better in real life and well worth a look. The project has been a wonderful start to developing links between the partner schools’ primary departments and will hopefully be the first of many collaborations.
