WE HAVE CELEBRATED OUR LTT IN OERIAS. (PORTUGAL) from 21st to 25th February

The aim of this LTT was to know the good training practices used by the seniors of the SENIORS UNIVERSITY OF OEIRAS in their work with adults.

We have carried out activities aimed at learning the good training practices of the University.

On the evening of the 21st we started with a welcome reception, where all the countries brought something typical of their country to taste and we attended a small recital of Portuguese music and ended with a photo game, where the aim was to recognize the different members of the meeting.

On the 22nd we had a great meeting at the Senior University of Oeiras. The activity of this day was based on exposing different stories and memories, of their lives as children, of the different participants from the participating countries, bringing objects of those memories: most of them were about children's games such as: marbles, string game, hopscotch, the string game, the nail, the ball, doll; there were also handicrafts; another was about a religious pendant; others more current, the Lego and the bicycle. The contributions were very satisfying, and in away we identified with many of the exhibits. After a break, we were treated to a short recital of Alentejo songs. The morning ended with a biographical film of Paula Rego, as an introduction to the next day's visit to her museum.

On Wednesday 23rd, visit to Paula Rego's museum, including an audiovisual, and two activities: the first one, some members had to paint others for a short period of time, it was very successful and the second one was to experience a certain technique that Paula had used in her paintings. Lunch was in the museum itself. Afterwards, we went to the Poets' Park, where in front of the corresponding poet statue their verses were read, as an exercise in poetic literature.

The next day, Thursday 24th, we visited the fort Sâo Juliâo, during this visit, we had to take external and internal pictures of the fort, selecting what had caught our attention, giving them a title and expressing that feeling in the activity, which would be carried out, afterwards.

Thanks to our Portuguese partners for teaching us so much!!!
