On Monday we were very excited. We could meet the Estonian and the German children. We sat in front of the camera and we saw a lot of friendly faces. We started the game. We had to say two true and one false statement about ourselves. We had fun and had a good laugh.
Our task for Tuesday was to write stereotypes about German and Estonian people. Almost everyone read out at least two clichés, we managed to collect the most. We heard some stereotypes about Germans that we knew, but there were also some that were new for us. Then we played the Estonian-made Kahoot game, also about stereotypes. This day was my favourite because we were still at the beginning of getting to know each other.
On the third day, we first asked each other riddles. It was fun, there were easy ones and also difficult ones. Later we talked about food and how it affects our environment. We learned a lot of interesting facts on this day.
On Thursday, we listened to different German and Estonian animal sounds. It was surprising how different they were from ours. After that we listened to a presentation by the eighth graders, and then we played a music related Kahoot game. We said goodbye to each other, as this was our last activity together for the week.
Green city (Presentations)
City tour (Hungary)
On Saturday, we had the chance to show the city to the tourists in the bright sunshine at its most beautiful, when we toured the city centre and the Great Forest. After this tour, we showed them the landmarks of the Hortobágy, where we could observe the migration of cranes.
Class visits (Hungary)
On Tuesday, during the second lesson, our guests visited an English lesson in the class 7.a, after which they checked in on the math class in the class 2.c
After the classroom visits, we discussed the steps of the program’s execution. The consultation was then followed by the tour of the school’s workshop where the students have the chance to make enamel jewelleries. Our guests also had the opportunity to try this unique technique. They made medals with Éva Molnár and her students.
Presentation of the school (Hungary)
The German and Estonian guests had been here for three days. On Thursday, they got to know more about our school, while they were also allowed to take a closer look at the various activities and workshops of the art school.
On the 18th of October, we collected paper. This activity was led by the SGA (Student Government Association). Although we could collect less wastepaper than usual, still a half-truckload worth of recyclable paper has been collected. Many thanks for the assistance of the parents.
First Skype connection with kids
On the 15th of October in 2021 we got in touch with the German kids through Skype. During the virtual meeting, there was a great atmosphere. We got to know a lot about each other, and we could not wait to meet them in person.
We keep in touch through Skype with the other schools that are also participating in the 2020-2022 Erasmus+ European Union tender. Soon, besides the teachers, the students will also have the chance to get to know those pupils who are attending to the Estonian and German partner schools. The get-together of the adults in Debrecen will take place in the beginning of November.
European Waste Reduction Week
Everybody in our school prepared with huge enthusiasm for the European Waste Reduction Week. On the 24th of November we opened the exhibition of shopping bags. On the 25th of October, we tidied up the yard of the school, then on the 26th of October, we made a tableau from nice plastic caps out of which we created a beautiful carpet on the stage of our school.
Sustainability Theme Week
Our school performed outstandingly during the School Sport Program, so, as the most active school in the county, we received a gift package containing 35,000 HUF worth of sports equipment.
Eco-flower planting: Tuesday afternoon, the students of class 2nd B planted winter flowers in plant pots to decorate the windows of their classrooms.
