Comenius

comeniusComenius has two main objectives:

  • to develop knowledge and understanding among young people and education staff of the diversity of European cultures and languages, and the value of this diversity
  • to help young people to acquire basic life skills and competences for their personal development, for future employment and for active European citizenship

Emersons Green Primary School has made links with schools and colleges in other European countries so we can work together on cross-curricular projects.

On Comenius Day, the children worked very hard together within their family groups to learn more about each of our Comenius Partners countries. The countries are: Italy, Spain, Poland, Sweden and Ireland. We are looking forward to meeting some of our Partner representatives from each country as they will be visiting us at the beginning of December.

A Comenius website has been set up to display the work and learning carried out by the children from each country – if you would like to take a look please visit: www.comeniusday.com.
