FRIENDS OF ENVIRONMENT
On 12 December 2015 in Paris, France, almost 200 governments agreed on the first ever universal, legally-binding deal on climate change. The historic Paris Agreement sets out an action plan to limit global warming to less than 2 °C above the temperature of pre-industrial times as scientists around the world agreed that this would significantly reduce risks and impacts of climate change. Besides, The 2030 climate and energy framework includes EU-wide targets and policy objectives for the period from 2021 to 2030. Considering all this scientific research, we have realised that our students, teachers and staff participating project have lack of information on climate change so we thought that the time had come to tackle climate change and determined six main themes ( chemical products, green house emmision, deforestration, air pollution ,drought and flood ) on Effects on Climate Change. Our students will achieve personal and general goals to achieve a sustainable and eco friendly project.
STAMP IT OUT

We hope we can learn to abolish stereotyping through the use of e twinning and support our students to stand up to bullies and build emotional resilience.

All the activities will be mainly in groups and using a learning by doing approach. Our aim is to give students the tools they need to improve their competences. Parents will be actively involved in the project and dissemination will play an important role in the project.
Vocabulary exercises Worldwide
This is a project about sharing ideas and examples of vocabulary exercises.
Sometimes teaching vocabulary seems hard because we don’t know where to start. this gives studends boredoom. thats why we try to build a vocabulary exercises treasury to help students and teachers.
This project aims to exchange practical vocabulary teaching and learning activities used in the classroom. so to strengthen teaching vocabulary in the class and helping other partners with the same topic.
WhatsApp to Email Pals
To create WhatsApp groups with students from different classes of both countries – international teams. The first part of the project will aim to get students to know one another introducing themselves (being pals), communicating in order to enhance their linguistic abilities and empowering communication skills. They will also write about themselves on a Twinboard. When they already know each other, four international groups/teams are formed to work on issues integrated in the curriculum: Lifestyles (balanced diet and sport); Future Careers; Environment; Volunteering; Statistics.
The works on these issues are to be done by groups of pupils of the different schools (mixed nationality teams) since different cultures may have different points of view and pupils will learn how to listen, accept, discuss and come to an agreement in a collaborative work.
As a start they’ll communicate by WhatsApp and mail. Then they can use many different tools.
Why should people visit your town?
Students will do a travel project in which they will present to a potential visitor the main touristic attractions of their city. The touristic presentation must be organized so that, in a single weekend, you could visit all objectives.

J.O.C.A. (JUST ONE CLICK AWAY)
The purpose of the project is to create and develop an awareness of the students who live in rural areas about places such as famous libraries, museums, historical places in their own countries and across the world by the help of using web-2 tools and 3D virtual tours. The basic logic behind the project is that it is really hard to go and visit the aforementioned places for the students who live in rural areas in terms of both their financial budget and the time. So the project is planned for them to reach these places by just a few clicks. They will learn and present some facts about these places by using web-2 tools and have the chance to visit the places by virtual tours.
LET’S SAVE THE EARTH
The effects occurring due to weather events in any part of the earth based on the average of many years is called climate. Earth’s climate is affected from many factors, ranging from the amount of energy coming from the sun, to the amount of greenhouse gases and aerosols in the atmosphere, and also the features of the earth that determine how much solar energy will be retained or reflected. Climate change as of today affects every phase of our lives, including physical and natural environment, urban life, development and economy, technology, human rights, agriculture and food, clean water and health, and obliges governments to increase their efforts to solve these issues. With our project it is expected to raise awareness among our students about climate change and inspire them to be more sensitive and to be able to produce solutions.
Our students are expected to take responsibility in the project, to be in a questioning, researching, analysing, decision-making spirit in individual, small group or team works, and to present the activities and products included in the project calendar.
