This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

eTwinning projects

2016-2017 East or West, Home is Best

This year's eTwinning project is about places: where we are from, places we have visited and places we would like to visit.

  1. Our first activity will be to log in (as your teacher for your username and password) and introduce yourselves in this Padlet. You can use videos, photographs, text, etc.
  2. Second session 09/11/2016



Our 2015-2016 has finally been awarded the European Quality Label.CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE involved!!

Our eTwinning project this year, Call Me Maybe about phones and internet, has been awarded the Quality Label in all our four countries, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine and Spain. 
This is our student Quality label certificate
This is the summary of the project:

Our students using different methods will enquire about the usage/importance of their mobile phones (frequency, applications, texting, phone calls, etc.) and constant feedback will be received from the partner schools.

  • Subjects: Cross Curricular, European Studies, Foreign Languages, Informatics / ICT, Media Education
  • Languages: EN
  • Pupil's age: 12 - 16
  • Tools to be used: Chat, e-mail, Forum, Other software (Powerpoint, video, pictures and drawings), Project Diary, Twinspace, Web publishing
  • Aims:
    The final aim is to create a newspaper and/or online blog where students can publish all their articles about mobile phones trying to get a critical perspective of their importance and usefulness for European teenagers.
  • Work process:
    The students from our schools will decide on the aspects to be dealt with and then they will try to enrich the monthly topics created with their descriptions, charts, photos, sms language, etc. They will make at least one survey about phones that can help to answer various questions from what are the favorable means of communication with friends and parents to what appliccations they prefer in their mobile phones. Students will collect data using different methods: questionnaires, interviews, group work. Communication will take place either using the Twinspace (forums, chatroom) or using social networks. If this last option is chosen, a common hashtag will have to be used.
  • Expected results:
    An increase of cooperative skills and competence. Better ICT competence. An improvement of our students communicative competence in English. A critical view of our use of technologies.

We have been awarded the European Quality Label for our project from last year, Let's Cook Together

Our project this year will be Let's Cook Together with our partners in the following schools:

  • Tryškių Lazdynų Pelėdos Secondary school (Lithuania) - 12 students
  • Gimnazjum nr 23, Poznam, (Poland) - 10 students

As the project last year, International Calendar, was a real success we mean to continue with the same type of activity with the new students this year. Our new project will be called International Calendar 2011-2012. The same partners will work in this project:
  • Barbra N'Sir from Poland, and her students
  • Neringa Lemeziene from Lithuania and her students
  • Ana Arias Castro from Spain and her students
Be ready to take pictures and record in any celebration you attend and use that material to enrich our eTwinning project.
 So, click here if you want to start working.

In 2010-2011 we started a new eTwinning project with a school in Lithuania that we have been collaborating with for a couple of years. Our project is International Calendar and we want to learn about festivities and the way we celebrate in both our countries, Spain and Lithuania. Samuel Donnelly, our language assistant is also eager to help us enrich the project and tell us about the most important festivities in his home country.
You can enter the project clicking on the links on the right bar of the blog or from here.

Project Diary

As anything else, eTwinning projects have to be renewed and improved. That's why we now have a new partner from Poland that will enrich the project with more information and comments about the European festivities we celebrate.

etwinning label for International Calendar
To put an end to International Calendar we are going to make a large poster that summarises all we have learned this year about the different festivities in Europe and the ways we feast and enjoy ourselves.

We also want to mention that our project last year, Knowing Europe 2009-2010 with a Lithuanian school, was awarded a national eTwinning prize in Lithuania. Congratulations to all the students who participated in it. They all have to share this award.

These are the materials made by the partners in the project. The materials made this year in International Calendar 2011-2012 are in RED:



For the final activity we made a large poster along the school corridor that summarises all the work that has been done to learn about our partners' festivities and celebrations.

Final activity:
In June 2011 this project was awarded the Quality Label in Spain and Lithuania. In September it was awarded the Polish Quality Label. Therefore it got the European Quality Label in October.  Our Polish partner was invited to an eTwinning conference in Poland. But this doesn't mean the project is over; we mean to continue enriching it during the next year, so that we can get a much better idea of the celebrations we have in Europe.
