50 specific outdoor plays (10 for each Learning/Training/Teaching Activity (LTTA)) created by primary school teachers who would come together in 5 LTTAs and organize workshops with their techniques, strategies, resources and formulation to create such plays appropriate for schools. Due to covid-19 pandemic situation in the 1st project development year partners did not have possibility to visit partners’ schools and see the activities in practice, therefore as the project period was extended partnership expects to have such experience and to visit every partner school.

There will be introduced and applied these plays in partners schools upon returning home from the mobility and will be integrated into school’s curriculum.
