Le Flamand rose n'a pas été chosi par hasard pour représenter notre partenaire portugais, implanté au fond de l'estuaire du Tage, dans une zone humide et péri-urbaine confrontée au bouleversement de ses équilibres écologiques traditionnels en même temps que les activités humaines changent et que de grands aménagements (aéoportuaires notamment) sont prévus.
Flamingos are very common on Tage river. Reason why Alcochete students choosed this animal as their High School's emblema in the E+A (Noah) project.
Filming the SCi-FI movie we have planned to do at the end of the partnership was supposed to be C5 main goal. Due to COVID 19 it was not possible to implement the last study travel neither in march, april or may, 2020. As we were not sure the exemption we asked ealrly in June for a 4 months extension of the E+A (Noah) project would be accepted by the Erasmus National Agency, some French Volunteers decided to make a filming from the 15th to the 22nd of June.
Students of our targeted group were involved last Tuesday (the 20th of March) in an exploration day as it was planned in our candidacy form. They went in the morning to a Science Research centre to hear a lecture and to see concretely how scientists use to study local salmons. They visited in the afternoon Bayonne old city, in order to see how the animals' representations are very pregnant in christian arts and myths.
After the visit of the INRA labs and a lecture about Salmons, pupils went to Bayonne in order to study the animals in the medieval art (gothic cathedral church as a sample).

ANIMALS AND LANDSCAPE FROM THE SEA SHORE IN SAINT-JEAN-DE-LUZ - November, 2017
Reminder: a report of this local training activity was uploaded to our french website
on its own local school website to disseminate and valorize the E+A (Noah) project.
French students (Seconde 4) walked the 21st of November from the Bay (and the city centre, next to the High School)
to Erromardie beach, 4 kilometers far away (northern part of the town).
They had to take videos in order to study
the morphology of sea shore (Geography) and they also collected some evidences of animal presence (Biology).
A guided visit was done with the Help of two experts from the
"Centre Permanent d'Initiatives pour l'Environnement"
Mr Allistair Brockbank and Mr Jon Frahier.Little movies were made as a first reporting activity test
by students and given to the Geography teacher...
L'un des films réalisés par les lycéen(ne)s de Seconde à l'issue de cette promenade pédagogique destinée à leur présenter le sujet, à les initier au reportage et à stimuler leur intérêt pour le projet. Les activités conduites éte ent en lien direct avec le programme de SVT et supervisées par M Geoffroy, professeur de la discipline et, par ailleursj enseignant responable de la section européenne Anglais
Attention ! Project holders will have to use the FORUM NATURE+CULTURE Twinspace to keep all the rushes and movies made at home in order students to cooperate during study travels (or from peer to peer by the Net).
Please do not forget our main goal: pupils will have to product together some transnational movies.
Thanks to all of implicated teachers to use our blog to keep in touch colleagues and give details about what you are doing with your students.
A movie about REAL AND GOTHIC ANIMALS - March, 2018
More details about our second field trip below (in a dedicated post).
A report with the agenda of the 2nd field outing implemented in France (sortie scolaire E+A n°2) :
Only transnational production or best of national ones will be uploaded
in this common public portal
[the E+A (Noah) spot]...
You'll find in this section (REPORTS tab) some posts on local activities in Bulgaria, France, Romania and Portugal...
Our priority during the first year was to prepare our students to use their smartphones to do footage and montage and to show them how to cooperate (and implement reporting teamwork). We'll check how they do manage to target these goals in a transnational context during C1 (first short term exchange in May, 2018). Local activities were implemented during the second and third years in the same time the mobilities (short-term exchange) were done or to prepare its.
