It is the opinion of the Portuguese team that Croatia has provided diverse work on sensory development, with very simple and easy-to-replicate activities in school.

Perhaps the least achieved fact was that we could have visited just one Museum of Senses, as there were some repeated experiences, although we found it very interesting globally.
The Croatian team organized excellently the week, there were plenty of motivating and interesting moments where all the visiting elements – pupils and teachers - got positively involved.
We must highlight the friendship, care, sympathy and involvement of school students and staff both in the games that we played and in the activities we were invited to participate in.
In general, it was a very interesting week, particularly, for all the experiences, knowledge, best practices, techniques and devices that the schools and institutions dealing with special needs pupils shared with us.
All week long, hosts were always present, always caring, always very professional.
Coordination revealed excellent organizational capacity, well adjusted to objectives and aims of the week and the project.

We could really feel, meaning sense, inclusion!!

"Inside out" workshop with students from Primary school dr. Ljudevita Pivka Ptuj, Slovenia

We watched a cartoon "Inside out" 

With the students classes 6 and 8 we watched a cartoon Inside out. Students were very exicited and full of expectations. One and a half hour passed quickly. Then we talked about cartoon movie. We split into four groups. We represented four different emotions: anger, happiness, sadness and fear. Students talked about the chosen emotion. They were drawing and writing on a poster. When they finished, they presented the emotion to the other students. Interesting products were created. We spent time full of emotions and laughter.

Erasmus day in Szkola Podstawowa Specjalna nr 40 - Bytom, Poland

On  October, 11 we celebrated  Erasmus  Day in our school. We called that day „Erasmus’ Kitchen”. Our aim was to create the multicultural kitchen. Students were given different tasks and they had two hours to do them. They were asked to design table pads, plates, mugs. They were also sewing and decorating kitchen aprons, painting a multicultural tablecloth and cutlery. All these things included the colours and motifs of us and our partners. Moreover, children planted herbs used in the kitchen like basil, mint and parsley. Another task was to make six cookbooks with photos and recipes of the traditional dishes of Croatia, Slovenia, Portugal, Italy, Turkey and Poland. But that’s still not all! We also did some cooking. Students, under teachers’ supervision, learned how to make Italian pizza or Polish „pierogi”. This was a real fun! When the students were ready with the tasks, we fulfilled our kitchen with all the products. At the end of that day everybody had an occasion to taste what they cooked while watching some culinary programmes. This was an awesome day for all of us!
