Local history
At Shoscombe we created Christmas art displays using recycled materiials based on Christmas 100 Years Ago. This image shows passesngers returning home to Shoscombe station for Christmas.
The railway stopped running in the 1960's and the railway line is now a cyclepath.
Comenius partners explore the old railway tunnel in Bath together . The railway was formerly used to transport coal and passengers. In WW1 this railway was used to transport troops and ammunition.
Look at changes brought by WW 1 and the subsequent developements in atitudes, employment, industry, transport( local railways), science and tecnology, the effects of migration on communities
Some of the childrens grandparents told us about their childhood and one of the locals has visited us, telling us about Arden. The railways came to Arden in 1864. The city raced around the station.
Develop vegetable gardens aiming to cultivate 100 different vegetables and herbs between the partners. We will particularly cultivate old varities, and test 100 old recipies. Product will be marketed to the local community.

The French children taught the children at Shoscombe how to play a French playground clapping game.

Catalonia - Ireland - England - France - Denmark

Our school is a small, rural Church Primary School. The school building is listed and dates back to 1866. The school is very well supported by the local community and Church

We enjoy learning about Arts and the Environment.

We have participated in several Comenius projects and have recently received a full International School Award for the 3rd time. We also currently have a Comenius Assistant from Spain.
At Shoscombe we made Lavender biscuits using lavender grown in our raised beds. Our parents tasted the biscuits at our harvest celebration.
We will particularly cultivate old varities, and test 100 old recipies. Product will be marketed to the local community.

Shoscombe Primary School, England
We have interviewed our grandparents and people in the local community to learn about old games. The children have played card games with their grand parents.
We have made little paintings of BATH SHOPS and the pupils have made stories about their imaginative shopkeepers.
We have had a project week where we learned about the developement of the village. In Arden there have been school different places.
February 2014 - All the children at Shoscombe worked on a project incorporating willow weaving and creating a living willow hedge.
They also learnt about the history of wilow farming in the Somerset Levels, and the uses of willow over the past 100 years. It was suprosing to learn about how willow played an important part in both World Wars, as wiloow baskets were used to transport the pigeons that carried vital messages at the war front.
The living willow hedge will form the boundary to Shoscombe school's new Forest School area. Children will use this area for a variety of exciting outdoor learning experiences linked to the curriculum.
2013-14 "The Hundred Project"
In December 2013 we planted trees to create a Forest School area in our school grounds. We want to plant 100 trees.
In February 2014 children at Shoscombe will be creating a living willow sculpture working in collaboration with a local artist.
Grandparents teaching our children old danish recipes. Here a cabbage stowage and elderberry soup.
Maristes Valldemia school, founded in 1855, is located in Mataró, Province of Barcelona – Catalonia (Spain). It is a catholic school run by Marist Brothers.
Currently, the college offers studies in Kindergarten, Primary, Secondary School and PQPQ which is a program for students who have finished secondary education but have not graduated. It enables them to go back to the education system. There are 1300 students aged 3 to 18 years, with 78 teachers.
The aim of our school is to help our pupils to become good students and good citizens. We concentrate our efforts not only in academic achievement, but also in citizenship, values, learning to live together in harmony, despite the difference we find in the school and in the world around us.
The school has several associations such as Parents association, former students association, a scouts association (linked to CMS) and another one called “Open hand-open heart”. Our school has a Giant called MIA which is like a mascot.
Related to the school we have several Sports Clubs such as basketball, football, judo and korfball.
We have learnt about the local history of the railways. In WW1 and WW2 the railway was used to transport troops, ammunition and coal. The railway closed in the 1960's because of cuts in funding.
All the children in KS1 walked along the former railway line which is now a cycle path. We walked through the long railway tunnel.
We have learnt about the history of willow farming on the Somerset levels. This is some research by Lydia and Emily in Year 6
"The war came on ....I didn't have to go in in the forces because our willows were more important than going in the army or growing corn....Every aeroplane and every ship used to carry pigeons, so they all wanted pigeon baskets and then your big baskets to drop supplies to the troops. they'd go out of shape but they wouldn't break''
Maurice Derham retired willow grower, North Curry, Somerset Levels
We visited the strict Victorian school in Radstock Museum and learnt that children left school at 12 years old to start work in the nearby coal mines
We have been collecting clapping rhymes that we sing and play in the playground. Some of the games were played by our parents when they were young.
An old lady (97 years old) came to the school and answered our questions about school during WW1.
We sowed beans...
... 3 weeks later!

Schoolpicture and reading book from the 50 íes. The silver mill is a birth gift to one of our grandparents.
We have had workshops with a visiting musician called Vivien Ellis. She has taught us lots of new playground games. These 2 clips show our favourite new game 'Little Sally/Little Johnny Walker' which we showed you in Bordeaux.
We have a new 100 Square in our playground
and we are trying to make up 100 games!
We like chalking on our
playground and making
up games
After the teachers from Shoscombe had visited Sagrada Familia in Barcelona we told the children about it and showed them photographs and a virtual tour. Then the youngest children made stained glass windows, and a model of the cathedral inspired by Gaudi.
They also made clay salamnders inspired by the mosaics in Parc Guell.

The Students from ARDEN has now made an excibition our local Library to let the locals learn about our project.
Video clip of our workshop
with Vivien Ellis. She taught us lots of playground games and songs.
There is a play button on the top right of the picture.
Let me know if it works! This is a Navaho song called Heyo heyo ipsi neya(Native American). It welcomes new friends in to a circle


St Julian's

The Combe Down Tunnel is a key section of the Two Tunnels Greenway, a four-mile stretch of disused railway between Bath and the village of Midford in Somerset.

The children researched how the railway would have been used in WW1. We walked along it from our school in Wellow into Bath with our friends from Ireland.

St Julian's
We planted 30 silver birch, rowan and wild cherry saplings in our school grounds. These, once established, will planted to create a small copse to encourage wildlife.
We have had a 100 square
painted in our playground. We have been creating our own games plus learning some old games our grandparents played as children.
A visiting musician, Vivien Ellis, taught us lots of new playground games amd chants. We will hopefully share some of these with our new friends in France, in March.
Our living
We made 100 bird feeders to hang around the school and local area.
St Julian's, Wellow
We have been learning some
new songs, chants and clapping games.
Some children have been
researching significant
composers of the last 100
Our seed potatoes are ready to plant
Denmark did not participate in WW 1 - only by sending a few soldiers to help the Germans.
ARDEN developed to be a village with a station, from a field to a place with an INN for the travelers, a new school, church and shops, a sawmill and a dairy.
Arden got their own church in 1934 even if there was a church in the next village. Arden was now expanded from 675 people in 1905 in 1100 in 1935 and now 2500 in 2014.
BATH inspiration
GAUDI the famous arcitect from Barcelona
We have been working with Gaudi learning about his life and works in Barcelona. The children made MOSAIK pictures and got very enthusiastic about it. La Sagra Familia is a fascinating building.
Our garden is slowly developing, where the children have planted willow and different plants and fruit trees. They have been grafting trees and got their own apple tree to take home
After cooking the children, grandparents and teaches enjoyed dining together talking about the old dishes and tastes.
In Denmark we have made a school garden planting a lot of different trees. We are trying to make the garden something for all our students to participate in.
National Spring Clean Week
As part of the National Spring Clean Campaign, the whole school pulled up their sleeves and picked up litter from the roads near our school to help keep our local environment clean.
Traditional music and dance
All classes have learned Irish jigs and reels. We enjoyed a céilí (group dancing) together in school.
The Crocus Project is a tangible way to introduce young people to the subject of the Holocaust and to raise awareness about the dangers of discrimination, prejudice and bigotry. The children's involvement in planting the bulbs and watching the flowers grow encourages ongoing learning about the importance of tolerance and respect. Holocaust Education Trust Ireland provides schools with yellow crocus bulbs to plant in autumn in memory of the one and a half million Jewish children and thousands of other children who died in the Holocaust. The yellow flowers recall the yellow Stars of David that Jews were forced to wear under Nazi rule. The Crocus blooms a the end of January or beginning of February, around the time of international Holocaust Memorial Day (27th January). When people admire the flowers , the children can explain what they represent.
The pupils recently participated in a 'Percussion Workshop' facilitated through West Cork Music
Family Trees
We researched the history of our families back 100 years and more!
We learned a great deal about WW2, the countries involved and of how people were affected. In pairs we researched aspects relating to WW2.
We are a co-educational primary school situated in County Cork, in the parish of Kilbrittain. Our pupils range in age from 4 years to 13 years. We have 66 pupils on roll at present, three classroom teachers, a full-time resource teacher, and two special needs assistants.
The pupils planted seedlings in January and germinated them in our school greenhouse. When they looked strong enough the pupils planted them outside into our garden beds. We are growing a wide range of vegetables and herbs. We hope to have an even larger harvest than last year which we will both eat and sell at our school market in June.
At Easter time we play a traditional game from Somerset in our school playground. All the children decorate hard boiled eggs then take it in turns to roll the eggs down the hill. The youngest childen have the first go. We see whose egg can roll the furthest! We are all wearing red and yellow clothes because we also had a Spanish Day to say goodbye to Silvia our Comenius Assistant.
Our students have made a male and a female scarecrow for the vegetable garden!
In Valldemia, we have been working in groups. Using the vegetables and herbs from our vegetable garden we are able to cook the following recipes:
All the children at Shoscombe have worked with local artist Edwina Bridgeman to create 100 squares celebrating how different animals helped during WW1. Edwina discussed with the children the brave and heroic tasks undertaken by these animals. The variety of animals involved in WW1 was surprising. There were messaging pigeons, horses, dogs that brought medical supplies, cats that caught rats, canaries and slugs that detected poisonous gases, camels that helped in the desert and even circus elephants in England who helped with harvesting when all the horses had been sent to the Front.
Each child decorated a felt square using a variety of materials and processes (sewing, using fabric pens and paints, felt and other fabrics and natural materials) to depict their chosen animal. The felt squares will be joined together to create a wall hanging commemorating the endurance and heroism of these animals.
June 1st - Look how our willow has grown!!!
On 1st May we held a Grandparent's Day at school. The children performed traditional songs and games including those celebrating Mayday and the start of summer. Singer VIvien Ellis taught the children the 'oldest song' in the English language, 'Sumer is Icumen in'. She led a procession of children wearing May crowns and riding hobby horses. Once outside in the playground children performed maypole dances for grandparents to watch.
On Grandparent's Day we planted flowers
at school with our grandparents
Visit at the beekeeper's
Bees are essential to environment.
3 months later.... Yummy!
What about school in the old days?
Our playground a long time ago... girls and boys were separated by a fence!
The French school joined with Ireland to the Crocus project.

The willow dome has begun to grow and the children are enjoying the shade it brings. The older children have been reading each other and our younger pupils’ stories from around the world from its cosy interior.
Children performed traditional dances from the last 100 years around the maypole. We even have pictures of Mrs Rodford dancing around the same maypole as a child; along with other historical photographs of dancers from the school .We had some more contemporary dancing too which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
The school and PTA held a duck race and dance event. 100 ducks were numbered and then sent down the river. Children and adults had great fun watching which ones floated in first- not to mention having a lot of fun splashing about in the ford in Wellow.
These are some of the games the children designed and have enjoyed playing.
Some of our pupils have been learning about fruits and vegetables around the world. We are trying to see if we can discover 100 varieties of fruits and vegetables. We went on a visit to Wagamamas, an Asian restaurant where we tried a lot of unusual vegetables such as mooli and seaweed!
At Wellow, we built a clay oven
in our conservation area. We made
pizzas and used herbs that we had grown in our school vegetable plot.

We hope to use more fruits and vegetables, grown by us, in old recipes and share them with the local community.
We have prepared a traditional Catalan dance for our mobility to Ireland
Together with our 3 year-old mates, we have created a tiny vegetable garden.
To be worked during year 2.
Harvesting our lavender in July.
the bees love it!
Next to one of the flower beds we planted with our grandparents, we made an arch with 100 pots of flowers in. This is to commerate the 100 years since World War 1. We have entered this creation into 'Bath in Bloom Competition. '
We have grown these fruit trees from pips! There is a
lemon tree, an apple tree and lychee trees. Only the apple tree can be planted outside in England. the other trees will not survive an English winter!
We have harvested onions, beans, strawberries, potatoes and chives. We sold some of our vegetables to parents. We made yummy salad using the potatoes and chives.
We have now grown and harvested more lavender
The children have cooked a "crumble" with the carrots and the parsnips from our garden.
The children learned French traditional dancing...and dansed during the mobility in Ireland in June.
You can watch the video!
The children realised photos with real onions and garlic, shallots and pumkins from the garden... and paintings called "Natures mortes", like the famous painter Paul Cézanne did .
At school we realised paintings as Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Rene Magritte about Birds of Peace...
