KING’S Ely Junior (KEJ) has won a national award for its integration of eTwinning, an online community that enables schools across Europe to work together over the internet.
Up against over 70 other school applications, the teachers won the eTwinning National Award for cross-curricular integration of eTwinning for their project, Learning Together.
As part of the innovative project, children from KEJ worked with schools in France, Spain and Portugal throughout the academic year, finding out about each other’s countries and customs as well as working together on an Olympic project.
Lorraine Oldham, a languages teacher at KEJ said: “We are honoured and delighted to have won the eTwinning National Award.
“Everyone at the school has enjoyed working on the eTwinning programme and this award is a wonderful celebration of the incredible work produced by our teachers and pupils.
“The school has also become an eTwinning ambassador, which means that we will be helping local schools to achieve this award as from September.”
Funded by the European Commission and managed by the British Council in the UK, the eTwinning online community enables over 93,000 schools in 32 European countries to link with each other.
