On the second day of our visit, each school had prepared a lesson to teach to the four grades about their country.
We introduced the children to Broadclyst Community Primary School and showed them a video as well as lots of photos. The children were fascinated by the range of sports that the children in year 5 and 6 take part in, as well as the amount of technology we have. As Volksschule only has 58 pupils, with around 14 in each class, the children were also astounded by the amount of children in each class. We then talked about the UK and the children took part in a quiz to test their knowledge. Miss Farrant and I were very impressed with the amount of English the children knew; with the help of the Austrian teacher’s translation we were able to teach the children one of our Harvest songs. Class 4LL had recorded ‘Do the Dough’ from this year’s Harvest Performance and the Austrian children joined in with actions. We are very much looking forward to Wednesday when we will have the opportunity to job shadow the Austrian teachers, and watch the art lessons which we will be bringing back to Broadclyst.
Bye for now!
