At St. Cuthbert’s, we have a range of international partnerships to help children to widen their experiences and understand their identity as a ‘global citizen’. Children thoroughly enjoy and learn a lot from these partnerships, learning about ways of life in different parts of the world, reading stories from each other’s cultures and finding out more about the similarities which unite us,as well as celebrate our differences.
St. Cuthbert’s, along with some other local schools, has become part of a new partnership with a group of schools in Tanzania. We are all looking forward to seeing the exciting learning, activities and projects that this new partnership will bring.
Last week, a group of children from Year 1 completed the first planned activity as part of this partnership. They took a walk through school, taking photographs of their school, thinking carefully about which parts of school they thought the children from Tanzania might like to see. They then wrote some sentences to explain their photographs and give some more information about what they do in each of these areas.
The children worked very hard on this project and they have certainly taken some pictures which capture the spirit and landscape of St. Cuthbert’s. They have enjoyed creating this booklet to share with their Tanzanian friends. They are also looking forward to seeing the photographs the Tanzanian children have taken of their school and finding out where they learn and play together.
