Dunkirk Visits Rome
Mrs Alford, Mrs Qureshi, Ms Lisa Hayes and Ms Parmjit visited our link school in Rome in November 2013.
Mrs Alford and Mrs Qureshi spent the time in meetings with the other link school coordinators and Head Teachers, discussing the forthcoming Pupil Camp in Finland and also the next steps for the group after the funding ends in July 2014.
Ms Hayes and Ms Parmjit worked with the same class for three days. They looked at the same book the pupils at Abbey Campus have been studying, 'The Man who Planted Trees'. As none of the children could speak English, the work was done through movement, Drama and Yoga. On return to Dunkirk, Ms Hayes and Ms Parmjit have been putting together a performance of 'The Man Who Planted Trees' with the classes at Abbey Campus. This will be shared at Christmas with parents and friends. The work done with Rome will be incorporated into the performance.
The school in Rome had been working hard on investigating the Big Question, 'Why are Trees Precious?'. They displayed their findings around the school.
