Starting the links with El Roque Primary School in La Palma
On Thursday 11 April Ms Humanes went to visit our link school, El Roque Primary School in La Palma, Canary Islands. She spent a whole morning there looking around the school and participating in lessons. Ms Humanes' son Rubén also stayed in class too. It was very interesting to see the differences and similarities between our schools.
Ms Humanes presented 'Paddy Bear', the bear that Year 3 made at the Bear Factory, to a Year 4 class. They were absolutely thrilled and came up with lots of ideas about where they going to take him and the sort of things they were going to show him. They promised to look after him. Hopefully, we will hear news of what Paddy has been up to soon. We will keep you posted!
It will be great to keep up our link with El Roque and during this term we hope to arrange a video-conference with them and to send them some of our work for them to see. They are hoping to send us a mascot too and we might even have a visitor from the school later in the term.
