International Links

In the month of October, the school will be learning about Poland and Polish phrases!  Watch our video below to learn some of the language!

We celebrated our International Afternoon on Wednesday. It was really wonderful to see so many children come to school in their traditional costumes or wearing the colours of the national flag. Throughout the day, the children learnt about other countries and the celebration continued in the school hall at the end of the day. The number of countries represented in the hall and the variety of food being sampled was very impressive! The event truly celebrated our school community and a huge thank you must be given to all the parents/carers who made the afternoon possible.

 

Through the British Council Connecting Classrooms Project, Our Lady of Lourdes is linked to Akrofuom Catholic Primary School in Ghana.

The project allows teachers from both schools to visit each other and share teaching and educational experiences. In October 2014, we had our third visit and Francis Awusi (Headteacher) joined us for a week. During his time in London, he visited all the classes and the children had the opportunity to learn about life in Ghana and how a school day for a child in Francis' school compares to ours. In 2015 we reciprocated the visit by sending two of our teachers to Ghana.

This year in 2016, our Year 3 class took part in a campaign to raise awareness of the needs of producers in developing countries. Using information from our partner school, the children wrote letters to convince people of the good reasons to buy and sell Fairtrade products.

 

 

Over the course of the year 2016 we’ve formed a new language based project with our partner school from Spain (CEIP Sant Rafael). This project has provided our children with an opportunity to practise and improve their skills in foreign languages.
