Our trip to Turkey After the flight we were collected at the airport by the Turkish teachers and taken to the hotel, where we relaxed a little bit. Later we went downtown to the bazaar to do some shopping and some spent almost all their money on clothes. We spent one night at the hotel. On Monday morning we were taken to the school in Ulubey, where we were welcomed with flowers. Later we got to know our host brothers and sisters. Then we drove to the

What we liked best: everybody was so friendly volleyball and the schoolyard pillow fight in the hotel our first flight the food was delicious to be in a different country without our parents Interview with the teachers party with dancing teachers bazaar to get to know our Turkish partner students we got presents from the school and our host families

Ulubey Canyon. The view was fantastic. After one hour we returned to school and were collected by our host families. We saw a lot of new faces and had a great welcome. They showed us around the house, where we lived for some days. Every morning we went to school until 1.00 p.m., and then we went home for lunch. At 2.00 we were back at school. There we also played a lot of volleyball with the other students and we spend some time at the playground nearby. The students were very nice to us, they asked us all the time, if we wanted to take photos together or if we wanted to drink or eat something. We really have to say our trip to Turkey was a fantastic adventure.

This is our partner school at the children’s festival. If you look carefully you might find some of us (the Germans and Czech students among them! 3

Imaginary Journeys are stories which are read to you by somebody. They can help children to reduce anxiety and fight school-related stress. You lie on your back or you sit on a chair. You close your eyes. Imaginary journeys are very relaxing. I liked our imaginary journey very much. During the journey I felt really relaxed. I saw nice pictures in front of my inner eyes, for example I saw a boat on a river and green grass.. With imaginary journeys you can become more relaxed and calmer. I would like to do these journeys more often at school. (by Florian)

Couldn’t school always be like this?

Once upon a time there was an ordinary garden whose life was going to change forever… Then the unthinkable happened and the children of Carpenters began their mission to transform the garden forever. Soon they added a touch of magic and made a pond full of frogs and fish. It wasn’t long before the local community helped transform the neglected area… First we were helped by the Building Craft College, then we were helped by Bovis Lendlease.

Finally we were assisted by the local community police officers… …even though it rained solidly for two days!!!

The garden was beautiful thanks to everyone...

After the change the children enjoyed the newly made garden… each class planted different plants in their own little area…

So this is how it ended up as an enchanted garden where the children can learn about the wonders of the world!!!

We are looking for suitable gloves, not to get burn wounds during ourclimbing tour.

A man from the climbing centre explains the climbing rules to us. He tells us how to use the karabiner or snap link.

Here we are climbing in the kids parcour in order to practice. That’s the easiest level at the centre.

This is level 3, the sporty course. Here we see floating elements. What you need is coordination and balance.

Rescue operation! Don’t look downwards. In case of an emergency the people from the climbing adventure centre will of course come and help.

That’s a kind of typical climbing splits. 17

PEEK-A-BOO (hide-and-seek) is a popular kid’s game, best to be played in a wood or at large areas full of various things in which (or behind which) kids can hide their bodies. Thus also a bigger house can be a suitable locality. Purpose of this game is to hide oneself so that the seeking person does not find the hidden person and, reversely, so that the hidden one gets to the place (“Home Base”) where at the beginning the seeking one counted out, with his eyes closed, a number agreed in advance; the rest of participants must, during such counting out, hide themselves and the seeking one as soon as he completes counting (...ending with: “Ready or not, here I come”) goes to look for the hidden ones. The hidden ones are trying to get unwatched to “Home Base” so that the seeking one does not see them. If the seeking one sees a hidden one, he runs to “Home Base” and must get there sooner than the hidden one (he usually calls: “Ten, twenty and name of the hidden

Hunting game (tag). Group of players usually move in a delimited area. One hunts all the others and tries to “tag” someone. If hunter flaps a competitor by his palm, he gives him his role by touching. “No tag -backs” - new hunter cannot “tag” the person who has just “tagged” him. Squirrel tag. We mark circles for squirrel tag. Players then run from circle to circle, from stone to stone as squirrels run from tree to tree. The hunting one represents a marten, an archenemy of squirrels. If marten catches a squirrel at esplanade, both players change their roles.

child”). Dodgeball is a kid' ball game where players try to hit competitor by ball and to get him out of the game this way. Team game Usually two teams are playing against each other; each of the teams occupies one half of the playing court. Each team has its captain who stands out the field behind the competitor's half. At the beginning of the game it is decided by a lot who has ball. Ball must be loaded, it means that a player must first catch ball thrown by another player, than he can try to hit any of competitors by ball. The player who is hit is out of the game and goes out the playing field behind the competitor's half. There he can participate in game (set balls, hit). Hit from the ground or from the wall does not apply. A player can also save himself if he catches ball. Steps with ball are not allowed. When all players are out of the playing field, the captain goes into game as the last one. The winning team is the team that hits all competitors, eventually hits more competitors in time limit. There is also variation all against everyone where each player plays for himself. Players can freely move on whole playing area, they try to get the ball and hit the others by the ball. Who is hit, is out of the game. When only several players stay in game, the playing field is usually made smaller so that the remaining players can more easily hit themselves. It is played until the last 18

player – the winner stays in game. It is also possible to play with two or three balls. The game is much faster then. Obstacles (tools) behind which players can hide themselves can be put into the playing field. There is also a special variation where players out of the game can return. A player who is hit remembers who has hit him and when his conqueror is hit, he can return to game. So the game is practically never ending.

Blind man's bluff. Players first choose the blind man by a rhyme; they cover his eyes by a kerchief and let him stand in the middle of a circle. The blind man starts counting from one to fourteen. Other players are drawing apart him; everyone can make fourteen steps at most. When the blind man gets to fourteen, he calls: “Everyone stop!” This is command for the players to stay motionless on the place where they are at the moment. Then the blind man starts searching for them carefully. Players stay quiet and catch their breaths so that the blind man does not hear them. When the blind man finally runs upon someone, he must identify the player by touching. If the blind man identifies him, they change their roles and the game starts again. If he says wrong name, he must search another player and try again to found out by touching who it is.

Pešek walks around (Duck, Duck, Goose). Players are standing or sitting (not on a chair but on the floor with their legs crossed) in a circle facing inwards, bend forward, with arms folded at the back. One player is walking round the circle with an instrument like a truncheon but made of textile. Nobody may look at the walking player otherwise they are banged. The walking player says: “Pešek is walking around, do not look at him; who will have a look at him, the one will be banged by Pešek .” Then he gives the instrument to any player's hand and this player follows his neighbour on his right side by hits until his neighbour does not get back to his place again. Then the “follower” walks around.

Playschool. Anyone can play this game with a skipping rope himself. Follow these steps respectively: jump the rope 10-times with feet close with a midst jump, 9-times feet close without midst jump, 8-times right foot forward (like running over), 7-times left foot forward, 6times backwards, 5-times catch the rope by one hand and turn it under yourself and jump over, 4 -times by one foot – right, 3-times by one foot – left, twice do not jump but only raise tiptoes and then heels so that the rope gets backward, once - cross your hands jump through the “window” formed. Repeat back till 10 jumps feet close with a midst jump. When you make the whole set without any fault, you may consider yourself skilful. You can change jumps as you wish. Playschool can be played with a ball thrown against wall when you clap your hands / squat down / turn round ... after you throw the ball and you proceed from 10 bounces against wall to 1 and back to 10.

Marbles. A hole of the diameter of about 10 cm and of minimum depth of 5 cm is made into the ground by heel. Players agree in advance how many marbles they are going to play for (2 or more). Players should differentiate their marbles by colour or other way so that arguments during the game are avoided. All players prepare agreed number of marbles and they throw their marbles, from a defined distance (usually about 7 metres) marked by a longitudinal line, in sequence drawn by lot, one after the other towards the hole as near as possible or even into the hole. Bouncing of thrown marble by competitor's marble is also counted. If a player's marble drops down across the line of throwing, it is not considered as regular throw and player can take the marble and throw again. After throws are completed, the distances of marbles from edges of the hole that determine the players ranking are measured. The player, whose marble was nearest the hole or even in the hole, plays first. In case of equality holing is repeated. Other part of the game is most often called flipping or pat-balling marbles. Flipping is done by leaning forefinger behind thumb or the other way round by leaning thumb behind the forefinger. Any other pushing is forbidden. Player starts flipping marbles as he wishes thus, also those that had not been his till holing and those that he has got to the hole during game and have become his ownership. As soon as he does not hit the hole by a marble, another player continues. Game continues until all marbles are in the hole. Flat ground with minimum unevenness, e.g. ground trampled down, is ideal for the game.

One player, “caller”, stands in the middle of the other players forming a circle around him, and calls: “Stork lost its little cap and its colour was...” and says a colour. Then all players, as soon as possible, must find an object containing given colour and touch it quickly. The player who made that last, had to play “caller” and the game started again.
