During the two years of the project the local newspaper ' Új Néplap' reported about our work five times: 22.11.2013., 28.02.2014., 20.06.2014., 27.02.2015. and 29.02.2015.  Moreover we made 5 different exhibitions on the Comenius wall.

At the end of the second year we collected the best works of all and used them to decorate the main corridor of the school in order that all the visitors, colleagues and children could see  them.

Matejko: The Sigismund Bell - bell-dance on chimes

Wed, 06/24/2015 - 19:21 -- Hungary

The performance was shown by pupils from class 5A of Szandaszőlős Primary School and directed by a music teacher. The coreography of movement was made by the creative ideas of the children.

The music used as a base is from the musical comedy 'Hary Janos' by Zoltan Kodaly. There are two pieces containing chimes: 'Chimes in Vienna' and Chimes in Kecskemet'.

Kodaly was also a world famous music teacher who invented a very new and unique method in teaching music named after him. The main idea in 'Kodaly-method' is reading notes using and showing solmization sounds and signs instead of 'musical alphabet'. Solmization accompanied with hand gestures  is also a special method of Hungarian music teaching. Using the solmizational names makes reading the notes easier.

Zoltan Kodaly was born in Kecskemet, Hungary. Every year an international summer school is organised there to make his method popular and teach it.

Report about the meeting in Poland

We travelled to Poland as the last step of the project. After the visit we made a report for the teachers, pupils and parents of our school where we presented the performances which were created by the inspiration of the Hungarian paintings and were performed in Bielsko- Biala during the Art Festival.
We also hold a quiz about the knowledge we gained about the famous artists and paintings of our partner countries during the two years.
We made an exhibition from the Polish pictures on the Comenius wall.
Later everybody filled in a questionnaire about the project.

In the sand animation club we got to know Wyspianski's paintings. We imagined what were Jozio and Helenka dreaming of.
Jozio had a little pony with wings and a modell car in his dreams. Helenka looked back on her childhood from her old age.
The background music we used was composed by Chopin.

Hungarian delegation in Bielsko- Biala

Sat, 06/06/2015 - 20:55 -- Hungary

 In May, 13 pupils and 4 teachers from our school travelled to the last project meeting to Bielsko-Biala, Poland.

During the meeting we could take part in several very interesting programmes. We could watch the exhibition made from the art works of all the partners. We also performed a short show on the Annual Art Festival inspired by the Hungarian paintings and watched a very rich show performed by the classes of our host school.
In Cracow we saw Jan Matejko's house and paintings, the Museum of Julian Falat and the glass pictures of Wyspianski. At Florian Kohut's house and studio the pupils made a picture of a scarecrow following the artist's instructions. At the school, they painted on glass and using a computer program they copied Stazewsky's work. They also cooperated with the other delegations to make an enormous anti-Guernica.
They made friends with a lot of students and had a wonderful time with the host families. Thank you!

Wyspianski on the sand table

Tue, 05/12/2015 - 15:32 -- Hungary

In Art club lessons the pupils studied The artist' children portraits. We learned about Wyspianski's paintings. Then we imagined how we could complete the pictures with the dreams and tried to make them. We made more versions and then chose one for each picture and practised to draw them. Meanwhile we were listening to Chopin's music.
