Rastaala School Teachers and Pupils visit Dunkirk
Ms Taija, Ms Minna, Heini and Katarina visited London and Dunkirk Primary School this week. During their stay many activities and lessons were covered. There were a number of visits to the school allotment where careful observations of life in the pond were made, fires were lit and activities connected with the big question 'Why is Water Precious?' took place. A narrow boat adventure took place where different year groups were able to travel and steer a canal boat along the local canal network. The weather was glorious and everyone who steered the boats managed to get their classes back to school safe and sound! The visitors answered many questions pupils and teachers had for them about life in cold and snowy Finland. Cedar Class and Willow Class continued working jointly on the big question and this work will continue once the visitors return to their school
Everyone at Dunkirk really enjoyed their visit and learnt a lot. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Taija, Minna, Heini and Katarina for the lovely gifts they brought from Finland for the school and for all their hard work and time.
