Two weeks ago, 17 pupils from the 6ème 8 (half-group nº 2 in English) started to participate in the project called « Set Sail – Not all Treasure is Silver and Gold »: it is offered by a Latvian teacher and Mrs Pindado’s pupils will have partners from Slovakia, Romania, Poland, Turkey and Italy.



The two main goals of this project is to share our culture with the other participants and to discover theirs, so  the pupils will create at least 3 final products: a Padlet wall with the videos where they introduce themselves, an interactive and customised map showing the « treasures » they have chosen in Barcelona, and a Kahoot quiz about Spain.



Our pupils have already watched other participants’ videos and have chosen their pirate name to embark on this new adventure! Their testimonies show how enthusiastic they are!


– « My name is Gabrielle Simphal but my pirate name is Sally Bradforth. I’m motivated to do this project, I like it because the pirates are cool !  And I liked seeing the videos. »


– « I felt weird when I recorded the video. I am going to meet pupils from Latvia!!!!!!! So exciting!!! When I saw the video of the other pupils, I thought I was going to make a better one. But I didn’t ! I didn’t wear the pirate hat because I thought I was going to be ridiculous. » Yannick Le Yaouanc


– « I am very excited about doing this project because there are pupils from all around Europe. I felt a little stressed doing my video because I don’t know the pupils that are going to watch it (I didn’t wear the pirate hat because I was going to look ridiculous). We are going to discover other cities from Europe and we’re going to make them know ours. » Aurèle Adam
