Welcome to our two special guests
We were very pleased, once again, to welcome two very special visitors to our school. They arrived all the way from our twin school in Sri Lanka to spend the whole week experiencing our school way of life. They worked with all the classes, swapping knowledge and ideas.
Thank you to everyone who attended or contributed to this year’s Harvest Festival.
Connecting Classrooms – Sri Lanka visit
Mr Hornsby and Miss Copland made another visit to our twin school, Midigama Maha Vidyalaya in Midigama, Sri Lanka, the week before half term. The British Council grant that funded the visit included days in school and a full day conference where we met other Sri Lankan and English teachers to look at ways of developing global education and experiences for our children. New projects and learning that we planned will mean that our children can share experiences with their Sri Lankan friends and further develop their understanding of the world beyond our country. The highlight of the visit though was the time spent in the classroom with the children. They have a very different home and school experience to that of our children – I am sure you will see how different from the photos below. However, children are children the world over and they delighted us with their enthusiasm and thirst for learning no matter how different their experiences were. It was an unbelievable experience and one which I very much hope we can do again. We are also hopeful that the Sri Lankan teachers can visit us here in Spennymoor this July.
Our International School Link
Our pupils really enjoyed learning about a different culture and comparing their education to that of Sri Lanka. The visitors really enjoyed spending time in our school and learned so much too. We hope to be sending 2 members of staff from our school next year.
