Having worked with more than a dozen schools across Europe has led King’s Ely to be officially recognised as an ‘eTwinning school’.
At the eTwinning National Conference, held earlier this month, the school received their plaque. Lorraine Oldham, modern foreign languages (MFL) co-ordinator at King’s Ely Junior, collected the plaque, as well as the quality label awards that all four of King’s Ely’s eTwinning projects received.
Ted’s Travels, one of Mrs Oldham’s eTwinning projects that she has run with King’s Ely Junior pupils, also won a highly commended award at the conference.
She said: “We are all over the moon.
“Congratulations to all the children who have taken part in eTwinning projects. “The conference was an excellent event, providing opportunities and workshops to further develop international projects within school.”
eTwinning is the largest community for schools in Europe.
It offers a platform for staff (teachers, headteachers and librarians) working in a school in one of the European countries involved, to communicate, collaborate, develop projects, share and be part of the learning community.
