Project evaluation

Our “Talking pictures” project has come to an end.
It`s high time to discover opinions of all groups of participants – students, teachers and parents!

We wanted to know what they think about project activities, its` tools and web site, benefits and difficulties they noticed.


Searching for these we organised the video interview with students in each school.
These are “must see” videos! Don`t miss them!



We planned surveys for parents to let them express an opinion about project and its` results.



Of course we couldn`t make an evaluation without teachers working in our school teams.
Teachers took part in survey where they answered questions about their role in a project, proffessional improvement, utility of tools and topics, students` benefits and their enjoyment.



We believe our evaluation shows details about project work from different point of view.
For sure it will let us be better and better with eTwinning next year!

Colour findings in the Cidacos Valley!

Hello folks again! We loved how you played detectives and your pictures are so amazing, thank you so much one more time… And, of course, we also did some research on the colours you proposed us. So we went out and looked for many interesting things. We have enjoyed a lot, specially now in the Spring season!

As for Poland, we had YELLOW, BROWN and RED.

In Herce we found yellow in dandelion, roses, abrotano (a medicinal plant) and naturally, the sun:


In Préjano we found brown inb these little leaves of a bush planted in the garden we have in our school,  the branch of this tree, the soil, in these dried  rose hips and the dried flowers of the mayblosoom.

and look what we did in Arnedillo for you!


As forIceland, we had GREY, CLAY/ORANGE and WHITE.

This is what we found in Enciso when looking for grey – rocks and clouds:

And in Herce we also looked for clay/brown and we found all these things: marigold, clay, a lake full of clay and some caves

And in Arnedillo we also prepared a nice presentation for you!

Spain is full of colours!

… and we want to share our spring happiness with you all, Poland and Iceland! Here are the four colours we chose (one from each village in our Valley) for you to complete a detective task searching for colours in your place. We decided to take pictures of a river for blue,  olive trees for green, honey for golden brown and cherries for purple.



The Cidacos is a our river.  It flows for 77 km (48 miles) until its reaches the Ebro river at Calahorra, in La Rioja, one of the biggest rivers in Spain.

The river is used for irrigation purposes and is often dried up near Calahorra.



If you ever visit Préjano, you will see that our landscape here is mainly green. That is due to the fact that we are surrounded by olive trees. It is a peculiar un unique green. Have a look. We took some pictures for you.

These are the fruits, the olives.


Honey and wax produced by bees

In Enciso, we were looking for a yellow natural element and we discover that honey, which is a typical product of Enciso and which is produced by bees, is yellow. As we couldn’t find any pot of honey around our school, we ask to our friend Ricardo, who is a famous beekeeper here, to to help us with this task and this is what he brought us.

Ricardo was telling us a lot of information about the bees, their hives, the way they produce the honey… it was a really interesting speech.

Can you find any yellow element in your countries?


Purple is in all the Valley in our cherry trees. We love cherries, they are so tasty and nice. Sometimes we put them on our ears pretending they are earings… that´s so funny!!

We coloured some pictures and of course, we ate them!

Bugüetrero… a bit of everything!

In Spain we have the Bugüetrero, a new especies of animal we created using the Oystercatcher´s head, the White Stork´s body, tail and legs and the vulture´s wings!
All made with plasticine!

We wrote the names of the three animals on the blackboard and we coloured the letters we wanted to.

After that we have joined them and then the Bugüetrero was born…

And now we are so happy!!
