eTwinning offers a platform for staff (teachers, head teachers, librarians, etc.), working in a school in one of the European countries involved, to communicate, collaborate, develop projects, share and, in short, feel and be part of the most exciting learning community in Europe.
For UK Schools it is overseen by the British Council.
Once schools and their staff are registered with eTwinning they are able to set up and take part in shared projects. These areas of the eTwinning site are only available to members with an authorised login.
Schools can create 'Projects' and 'Events' and invite other schools to take part.
Wanborough Primary School has used eTwinning for our 'Guess Who' exchanges each year with Ecole du lac in St. Cyr.
We have also taken part in a Maths Challenge (see below)
and a project exploring idioms in different languages. This involved a number of schools in the Poitiers area of France.
For the Idioms project, Year 6 created pictures of English idioms. We shared these in the eTwinning website with schools across Europe. We then compared idioms and their meanings in various languages. The idioms were compiled to create the eTwinning Idioms Book.
We are proud to announce Wanborough School gained an eTwinning quality label for this project. Well done Year 6 for all your hard work.
In 2018-19 are are once again part of 'Guess Who' and our Erasmus Plus funded project 'Let's all GROW Together
' is also using the eTwinning platform.
We designed e-Safety posters for a 'Safer Internet Day' event in February. This event was led by a Greek school.
