Miss Farrant and Miss Northcott will be flying out to New Delhi on February 13th and returning on February 22nd. The week will be spent visiting 3 different schools and then spending 2 days at ‘The Good Samaritan School’, which is the school directly linked with Broadclyst. Whilst there Miss Farrant and Miss Northcott will be sharing their knowledge and teaching a variety of activities.
The main aim is to develop and maintain a link with the school in India so that we can share ideas, continue collaborative working and develop communication between the staff and children.
During the visit Miss Northcott and Miss Farrant will be updating this blog on the school website so you can track their visit. If you follow Broadclyst via Facebook or Twitter you will also be able to keep up-to-date with the visit.
There are 2 other local schools involved in the project and our school has already spent time collaborating with them on a range of different projects including creating scrapbooks, retelling traditional English folk law and letter writing.
In April 2 teachers from India will be visiting the UK and spending time in each of the 3 schools over here. Hopefully this will be the first visit of many and will help to secure the developing links.
