My school is my treasure
Our moto: Those who get lost on the way to school will never find their way through life. (German proverb)
Annotation: “My school is my treasure” is a project based on the history of Oshmyany Secondary school #1. This project is created by English teachers in order to involve all school children in study of the history of the school where they study.
This extracurricular activity is based on the problem that children have a lack of knowledge about the history of their school. This topic is very important for them, because knowing theit school history is not less important than knowing the history of their own country. The project involves children of all ages that study in Oshmyany Secondary school #1 in the process of srudying their school history. Working in groups they will not only learn new facts about their school, but also can develop communicative skills, logical thinking, learn to use Web 2.0 technologies, build cross-subject links, practice to speak English etc.
Problem: Nowadays children do not know about their own school. When someone asks pupils about the most famouse people that were studying in the school, only few can named.
