Hi everyone! This year we are taking part in the Blue Star SESE programme. According to their website this is "an education initiative for primary school pupils across Ireland. The idea of the Programme is simple: to foster better understanding and knowledge of the European Union and how it affects the lives of Irish citizens among primary pupils through classroom projects and activities."
Here is a link to the website for anyone who would like to take a further look: http://www.bluestarprogramme.ie/about/
After learning some new information about Europe and the European Union, we split into groups and researched and prepared projects based on various EU countries. We tried to choose countries that we had connection to in the class, such as girls in the class who were born in these countries, or girls who had family members living in certain countries.
Have a look at some of our projects:
