The Project Supporting Czech Republic Entrance of the European Union

Let us introduce ourselves: Our class

The aim of the project: To gather materials for Internet presentation of individual classes.

Particular aims: Extension of general knowledge of pupils, support of language education, support of computer literacy, opening possibilities for further contacts among schools and classes.

Project participants: The project is intended mainly for lower-primary school pupils (primary education) in the 3rd to 5th classes (age of 9 to 11 years). Project can be entered by any class that processes and sends required materials. Schools both from the Czech Republic and abroad are welcome to take part in the project. The information will be passed through the mediation of Internet in the form of pictures and short texts in the mother tongue, English and German languages.

The fact that mainly children take part in material preparation is considered very important. Texts should be brief and simple. If there are any difficulties in translation into German and/or English, we can take care of that.

Here is the reference for requirements of information necessary for project entrance (pictures, texts) and contact address:
