Similarity in Variety First project meeting Belgium 12th – 16th October
Most of the teachers landed at the Brussels Charleroi airport. Mrs Marie Labrassine – the school coordinator from Belgium took us from the airport to the hotel in Nivelles. Nivelles is a town very near Arquennes where the Ecole Communale dArquennes is situated.
Masterpiece of classical architecture, the grey- stone castle of Seneffe is a must see in the industrial region of Louviere. The château of Seneffe with its magnificent park and annexes offers a very fine example of a mid 18th century noble residence. In general it follows the example of French noble and royal residences.
After the presentation of the rooms in the castle we were also shown how to prepare hot chocolate as Belgium is famous of chocolate. Everyone had also the chance to try the hot chocolate.
We saw the French reading lesson. The teacher used lots of active methods and techniques. The children were really active learners. What we liked the most was the arrangement of the pupils desks – all the children sat in a circle. During this lesson the children did not use any books or notebooks. After the lesson we were once again taken to the Town Hall to discuss the dates of the next project meetings.
