Our plans for this semester.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ETWINNERS!!!

This semester will be fulfilled with hard work. I hope you will have lot of fun while completing the stages of our projects 🙂

So, let’s start with a short summary: last semester we finished the Christmassy project “Sing and Write Christmas” and got the QL. At the moment we’re taking part in two projects: “Dear Diary” and “Let’s get to know each other”. Let’s have a closer look at these projects.

1. “Dear diary” – at the moment we are finishing “the tourist guide”. Next month we’ll be discussing spring and Easter issues. We also hope to take part in a chat with our foreign friends. In April we’ll talk about our free time activities and hobbies and after that we’ll finish our project with gathering conclusions about similarities and differences between our countries. During the first two weeks of June we have to create our Digital Book (this will be our “diary”). Can’t wait to see the final result!

2. “Let’s get to know each other” – we are finishing the February part about unique traditions. We have two months to describe traditional Polish dishes and things or people our country is famous for. I hope we will be able to create many interesting films and scrapbooks 🙂

We will use many interesting tools: Smilebox, PhotoPeach, GoogleDrive and of course eTwinning tools from TwinSpace 🙂 Prepare yourself to have a great time during our classes!

The recipe for gingerbread cookies.

During our videoconference with students from Greece we promised them to send a recipe for our traditional Christmas gingerbread cookies. In real, we don’t eat them only in Christmas time – we can bake them and eat with pleasure all the year round – but they are a must-have-at-home in winter. They are healthier than usual cookies, because they contain honey. In Poland honey is often used instead of sugar, because it’s not only better to our health (not as fattening as sugar) and tastier, but it also strengthens our immunity.

So, here is the recipe prepared by Hania (today is Saturday – Hania promised she will bring us the cookies on Monday to take some photos of them):

GINGERBREADS from Poland

Ingredients:

1 ½ kilograms of flour

2 glassful of honey

120 grams of butter or margarine

1 spoon of lard

½ kilogram of sugar

2 spoons of cocoa

3 packaging of gingerbread spice

4 eggs

4 teaspoons of soda or 2 spoons of ammonia dissolved in 1 or 2 teaspoons of water

1 packet of baking powder

 

Preparation:

1. Melt honey, butter(or margarine), lard, sugar, cocoa, and gingerbread spice in pot.

2. Add flour, eggs and baking powder to melted mass – you will get some dough.

3. Knead the dough well.

4. Roll the dough out and cut cookies. You can make different shapes.

5. Bake for 5 minutes in 180°C or 200°C.
