|Sumár projektu:||An intergenerational, intercultural project which challenges school communities to explore their own and The European Cultural Heritage of others and engage in the wider curriculum through Pastimes, Sport and Craft. This project embraces Pastimes relating to cultural heritage, carefully linked to curriculum requirements and is in line with the respective School Development Plans, ensuring school attainment will be increased, educational targets will be met more readily and disparities in equity for each partner considered and solved.
We address equity issues present in schools, communities and countries, embrace each cultural heritage as one and create/develop environments, relationships in which any individual/group can be/feel welcomed, respected, supported, and valued to fully participate in school and community life. Every participant will gain important transferable skills/confidence which have positive impact on their own interpersonal skills towards peers and counterparts in school, local community, Europe and beyond.
Through sport, craft, practical activities/social interactions, Soft, Visual, Auditory and kinaesthetic skills, we will encourage the holistic, contextual learning of history, geography, humanities, science, foreign languages, mathematics, literacy, culture and The Arts.
Motivation of staff and children will be increased, well balanced citizens will emerge, who will inevitably impact and help to shape the future of cohesion of communities - effectively bridging gaps between age, gender, disability, ability, race and religion
Through mobility/participation of educational communities, the opportunity for personal professional development will occur naturally in context.
Through observation, a deeper understanding of theoretical/methodological practice learnt from their peers, is invaluable CPD, raising standards in teaching and chances for progression of their career. It will enable children and teachers from different social backgrounds to experience mobility, in most cases for the first time, facilitating accurate interpretation with which to rationalise/modify their own understanding of other communities, helping them to draw unprejudiced comparisons and conclusions, based on their own thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviours through interactions with peers rather than Media Presentation and help to build a more cohesive future with the inclusion of Social and Educational Values of European Cultural Heritage at the early stages of children' lives through to adulthood.
The project is aimed at exploration and learning about the cultural inheritance of Pastimes (some already forgotten) which have passed down from previous generations representing history, identity, values and traditions.
Through mobilities of students, sport activities, craft and games (Pastimes) activities, we will visit historical monuments and buildings/ archaeological sites, towns and the natural environment and landscape, explore traditions, social practices, craftsmanship and the knowledge and skills/ subject knowledge transmitted from generation to generation within a community to rejuvenate interest to preserve for future generations, fostering intercultural understanding and collaboration with peers across Europe, reduce time spent on electronic games, TV and social media sites, inspire everyone to explore traditional/new ways to offer inclusive activities relating to their own cultures, customs, traditions and beliefs, socialise, interact and communicate for themselves to encourage their own active health and personal well being and motivation to learn. Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to participate at an age and stage appropriate level which is personal to themselves, in order to discover new skills and practise sociability, tolerance and celebrate the cultural diversity of other peers across Europe. It will provide an extension of intercultural/intergenerational participation and family learning opportunities and result in
Physical and shared digital collection of pastimes, activities, games and teaching resources,
Increased sociability and motivation, confidence, social participation, creativity and educational achievement.
Introduction of a wider range of hobbies and pastimes which encourage children and adults to take managed risks and develop their own safeguarding skills, Enhance outdoor learning opportunities and problem solving skills
Shared bond with peers across Europe of belonging to, engaging with and preserving/protecting extended European community and collective cultural heritage
It will balance Inclusion and equity of all stakeholders and bridge the current gap in diversity, inclusivity, quality of teaching and learning and social networking opportunities, while providing an exciting vehicle which everyone can drive forward at their own pace and in the direction which suits their needs and the needs of others |
