Europa bewegt sich - Europe in Motion

The primary school follows a comprehensive European-oriented educational concept that includes early language learning. This COMENIUS project brought together nine primary schools from eight different countries. Target of the project was to enhance cultural, linguistic and social communication in combination with various expressions of movement. The various aspects that were explored by the project community focused on: movement in terms of locomotion, artistic and playful expression of movement (dance, games), but also movement in terms of migration on a mental level. Each class of the school has a partner class in one of the partner countries. The children learn specifically national modes of movement/locomotion, gain foreign language skills “in motion” as well as intercultural competence. They discover the diversity of languages in Europe and make a European identity their own. In the project the partner schools first documented games that include movement and are typical for their country with descriptions, photos and films which then the partner schools tried out.
