We are very proud to have been recently awarded the International School Award for our efforts in revealing the wider world to our children and in making links to countries in all four corners of the globe.
Led by Mrs Dowling, we have fostered links in China, Malawi and Spain through various projects and penpals.
We also held a Brazilian carnival day as a whole school to celebrate the arrival of the Olympics last summer. We held a European day which was linked to our Geography curriculum. During this, we were able to sample many different cuisines from across Europe.
Our parents were more than happy to join us for that! When we received the award, we were treated to speeches from a local MP and the youngest lady from the UK to climb Mount Everest in history. Ryan Rossiter and Lacey King in Y4 were chosen to attend the ceremony because of their excellent attitudes in class and because of the progress they have made.
After receiving the award, we also received a congratulatory letter from Nick Brown MP.
