Rosa Street School works hard to introduce our children to the wider world around them, including places in other countries. Being involved in projects such as Connecting Classrooms has enabled links with other schools and from these links children have gained a better understanding of the context of each school including cultural norms, school setting, children’s interests and how people in other countries live. Children at Rosa Street are encouraged to become global citizens and take part in regular activities to champion children’s rights around the world.
Here is a link to our action plan:
Midigama Maha Vidyalaya
We have been working with our partnership school in Sri Lanka since 2014. It is located on the South coast of Sri Lanka, near Galle. Our teachers have visited the school yearly and the Sri Lankan teachers have visited Rosa Street Primary. We work on joint projects and our children are able to learn about Sri Lankan traditions and customs.
Ecole Elementaire Jean Racine
We have also a partnership with a school in France – Ecole Elementaire Jean Racine. We have had this link since 2015. Our children have visited the school and enjoy working together.
International week – Christmas around the World!
As part of our Christmas celebration we have shared Christmas cards over the last few years with Sri Lanka. This activity was initially instigated by the pupils. This year each class planned work for the week before we broke up for Christmas. All classes selected a different country for activities to be based around. These included: Germany, France, Finland, Sweden, Brazil, India, Mexico and Australia. Work was shared in assemblies at the end of the week and used to make a lovely display. It was a fantastic opportunity for all pupils to find out more about when and how Christmas is celebrated around Europe and the rest of the world.
First World War Armistice Centenary 2018
The whole school have been learning all about the events of the world wars this week. A World War re-enactment company joined us in school and children brought items of interest into school.
Sikhism in Year 4/5 – Autumn 2018
This term we have been learning about different religions including Sikhism. We have explored the beliefs of Sikhs and how these beliefs can be expressed. We had lots of interesting questions for our special visitor Cloud Singh which helped us learn lots about the religion.
London Visit 2018
Children had an exciting itinerary that included a West End show, visit to the Tower of London, a river cruise, Natural History Museum visit and the London Eye experience.
France Visit 2017
In France we were based on the outskirts of Paris with an inspirational itinerary to immerse pupils within the French culture. Children enjoyed visiting some unmissable attractions and the French-themed activities ensured it was a memorable trip for all.
Welcome to our two special guests
We are very pleased, once again, to welcome two very special visitors to our school this week. Our visitors arrived all the way from our twin school in Sri Lanka to spend the whole week experiencing our school way of life. They will be working with all the classes, swapping knowledge and ideas. Please keep a look out for photographs and displays that will appear around the school over the coming week.
Rosa Street Visit Sri Lanka
Mr Hornsby and Mrs Wilson received a warm welcome when they visited our twin school in Sri Lanka in February 2017. Please have a look at some of the wonderful photos taken during their exciting visit.
