Newspaper week

18. - 22. 3.2019   Tarnobrzeg

The fundamental idea of the Newspaper Week is to provide all schoolchildren with the opportunity to become familiar with newspapers. The aim is to highlight and underscore newspaper media's role as the leading provider of news in print, online or on mobile devices.Pupils will work in a joint team and issue a newspaper. They will write:

- an editorial

- reports of impressions from the visited country

- blogs - about your school

- take pictures, they will learn to work with the photo

- learn to edit photos

- make interviews

We celebrate Newspaper Week with an adventure that will help our students become aware of the world around them, make decisions, plan with their classmates and become producers as well as consumers of the written word.

At first we presented our country, village and school. Then they showed us their school, which was very modern and areal was full of playgrounds for children. First day was as good as our dinner, wich was pizza. Next day our friends from Poland prepare for us a trip in Tarnobrzeg, we saw many spectatular places. Some of them were gigantic castle Tarnowskich and wonderful church. Another days we made newspaper called Europage, we visited other cities bigger than Tarnobrzeg and one of them was Rzeszów where we were under the ground. Every day when our program from school ended than our program with families only started. And this was our journey to Poland. Now, we have very useful and good experience and we are very greatful that we could be there".

Lithuania is the country in northen Europe. The capital and the largest city is

Vilnius. The official language is Lithuanian.

In 1991, on the break up of the USSR, Lithuania became an independent

republic, and on the 1st of May 2004 joined the European Union.

The historic core of Lithuania´s capital, Vilnius, is an eye-pleasing assemblage of

bright baroque houses and colourful churches.

Lithuania´s charms are quirly unforgettable and very beautiful. People are very

kind and hospitable.

Our pupils have gained some valuable experiences from this international

project Erasmus +, and I hope that they will use them in their rest of lives.
