International Schools Award

Fantastic News! - We have successfully gained re-accreditation of our International School Award 2019-2022!
This involved us providing evidence to show that our international ethos is integrated in all areas of learning, alongside completing a range of International projects. We received some really positive feedback from our external assessor.
The collaborative activities all work well the first two really helping to answer some of these bigger questions for pupils, which your curriculum thrives upon.
Your third activity linked with the Polish schools gives a real opportunity for those pupils in Year 5 to have a purpose for writing but also to be able to verbally explain to visitors - a very enriching activity for all involved. Well done for being able to access KA1 funding to develop French language teaching this will hopefully have a long term benefit and although you explain that next year there will be more cultural aspects it can only be assumed that the topics covered will have explored some of the cultural similarities and differences. 
Your celebration of your joint heritage and your use of World Book Day are empowering for the different groups within the school and that confidence building and inclusive element will last longer than the activities. It is great that you have also been able to involve your school and wider community. 
Your final activity really builds on the understanding you would have developed whilst being a GLP Network school and is one that pupils really embrace, again good use of literature to create a more cross curricula feel to the activity and that the pupils were able to promote Eco School. 
You have worked hard to continue with your ambassadorial role following on from GLP and this will have been a great help to the other schools in your Erasmus project. 
The perspective obviously permeates your school , through the appointment of multilingual teachers to the recognition and respect you give your whole school population and your encouragement to develop critical thinking through the P4C. Good luck with the second year of your Erasmus project and keep giving your pupils a real sense of the extended world. Congratulations to all involved!"

National French Day 2022

As a celebration of the French language work we complete in school, and to provide the children with the opportunity to find out about French culture and traditions we celebrated ‘National French Day on Monday 21st March (the actual day was Sunday 20th).

During this day children tasted French food, which they ordered in French, listened to music by French composers, completed art images in the style of Monet, took part in a French orienteering activities and creating fact files using a range of information sources. The children also had the chance to celebrate their achievements in French through being recorded speaking French. 


The Big BK Dig
On Thursday 24th April we had five willing workers to help out with the 'Big Dig.'
We dug out some beds at the front of the school, for the children to plant wild flower seed. This will support the Eco Club in their aim to encourage more wildlife to the school. 
A special thank you to the Rotary Club volunteers for your help and support. It was hard work but it will be well worth it!


International Project - Small steps to solving a big problem - KS1 Eco Club
The focus for KS1 Eco club this year is looking after our local wildlife through the seasons. During the Autumn term, pupils began by planting insect friendly bulbs around the school, in preparation for the Spring, and to encourage a variety of insects into our school environment. A number of different wildlife habitats have also been placed around the school, including bug hotels, log piles, bird boxes and a hedgehog house. Pupils are aware that these are necessary to protect different species during the colder Winter months. Bird feeders and bird baths have been located, which the children replenish with food and water regularly. In addition, the children made their own pinecone fat balls that they hung from the trees in the woodland area, within the school, and have monitored how popular they have been. 
During the Spring term, wild flower seed will be sown by the pupils, in our new school wildflower area, where pupils will be able to monitor the variety of insects that visit. Throughout the year, Eco club have also been engaged with litter picking and the pupils understand how important it is for the wildlife to keep our environment safe and clear from litter pollution.


International Schools Award Project - Learning a language together
Learning a language together
Along with introducing a new French scheme, 'Language Angels', we have made contact with a local secondary school who are willing to support us to prepare our KS2 children for KS3 French lessons. This is an exciting opportunity and will provide scope for the shaping and sharing of grammar, phonics and vocabulary between both settings. 
Happiness Partner Project

This week we received a fantastic video sent from our wonderful partner School in Italy. It is full of fantastic pictures which the children drew to describe being 'happy'. Please take the time to watch the video. Our children really enjoyed talking about the children's pictures and comparing them to their own drawings.


Happiness project - 01.03.2022

The children in Reception commented on the amazing details in the drawings completed by the children in the Italian school. 

After watching both presentations the children in Reception, who had previously made and drawn happiness jars, wanted to produce their own pictures like the ones from the Italian children. Here are some examples.
