English, Italian, Spanish and Turkish… 4 European countries with different cultures, different languages and different lives. Teachers and students who put their hearts together for a common purpose among millions of people who said hello to 2020 at the same time with the whole world, carried out a different work under the Erasmus + project. Aside from all the differences, they said the language of the children is unique and they celebrated the new years of their friends abroad with the New Year Cards they prepared with different tools. Scratch, CoSpaces, CoBlocks, MIT App Inventor, said that our way passes from the cards they have designed and coded with Merge Cube, to the cards and videos they draw and voice themselves. You can find all of the Christmas Cards from this wakelet collection

Gamifying Our Heritage
Third and fifth year primary school students and their teachers took part in creating a route through Arteixo's heritage.
The route was about the legends of Arteixo. These are set in characteristic places of our heritage.
It was a very nice and special job in which the protagonists were the students and Xabier Maceiras, our guide. Javier is a Galician writer, scriptwriter and documentary maker who collaborates with us in many projects. It was a pleasure to collaborate with him and to learn so much from his knowledge about the city council and our history.

Due to terrorism, war, famine, etc.
the education periods of the students

but there has never been such a time
in the history of humanity that
everyone was deprived of education.

It's time to be strong
It's resist time

CEIP Ponte dos Brozos
This Christmas, with our 5th graders students of Infant Education, we have been working on the languages of our Erasmus school friends.
We noticed that Feliz Aninovo is written very similarly and has many of the same letters as Italy and Portugal, but very differently when we write it in English or Turkish.
Then we chose the pronunciation and we laughed because we didn't understand anything.
All these languages were reflected in a postcard.
As lessons designed with Breakout games offered students a fun and exciting way to develop problem-solving, critical thinking, logical thinking, communication and collaboration skills; ICT teachers at Anabilim made their games with using too many tools about cultural heritage of partner schools.
Interactive Turkish Cuisine
Our sixth grade students from Anabilim Private Middle School prepared an interactive Tr Cuisine map for their Erasmus friends. Turkish Cuisine, which consists of dishes prepared with cereals, various vegetables and an some meat in juicy form, soups, olive oil dishes and pastries, and dishes prepared with self-grown herbs. They used Metaverse app for creating the meals with augmented reality on the map and genial.ly for presentation. The most excited part of this project was working with their families for learning traditional Turkish meals.

Legend of The Rooster
All along the coastline of the municipality of Arteixo there are many caves which, over the centuries, have been sculpted by the sea elements. Among all of them, the most notable is the one in Valcovo, on the beach of Area Grande, known as Furna do Galo or San Xián. According to the legend, a Gaul entered the cave and, up the mountain, did not stop climbing until he came to light in a spring that was in a place that has been called O Galo since then. The spring, which still exists, but which has stopped gushing water some years ago, is located very close to the castle of Castelo de Lañas, the same place where the galiña dos pitos de ouro lives.
The legend recalls the general belief that all the forts (ancient constructions of the olden times) had a hidden exit. The path that leads from the cave to the mountain, near the castle of Castelo de Lañas, could well be that exit.
And this is the legend of the rooster seen through the eyes of the 5 year old boys and girls of Infant Education.
