Travelling Teddy Bear
19th March 2014
Mrs North has been accepted to join a group of nine other European schools to work on a new, exciting project entitled ‘Travelling Teddy Bear to Discover Other European Schools’. The project involves adopting a teddy bear mascot, which travels from one country to another, keeping a diary and blog about each school and the activities that take place.
Mrs North will be in regular contact with teachers from the various schools, which include: Netherlands, Turkey, Romania, Croatia, Estonia, Poland and Slovakia.
Throughout the project, children at St Mary’s will discover lots of interesting facts about the different countries and the daily lives of the children who live there.
Malaga-February Half term 2014
10th Feb 2014
This was a fabulous week and I have returned to school with new ideas and greater confidence in my Spanish speaking skills. I have now developed a link with the school I visited, and children in Year 2 have already written to their new Spanish friends. We look forward to receiving letters from them.
