International Day

It’s been some time since I blogged but today is a good day to catch up! We are having another of our International days again today and so much great learning is taking place. I have had the pleasure of walking around school to see the children in action working on rangoli patterns in Thistle class to ‘what makes our country’ quilts in Clover class to Vlogs in Lotus class!

As a means to develop our understanding of the wider world and our internationalism, this year each class has forged a link with a class from another country around the world. Thistle class have linked up with a school in India, Clover class have friends in the USA, Lotus class regularly say bonjour to their friends in France and Orchid class keep in touch with their friends in New Zealand.

It has been so successful and so much fun so far. We have also now introduced time zone clocks onto our display boards in the entrance hall, so pop in and have a look when you have time! Needless to say that I am sure the blogs will be full of today’s learning over the next couple of days. With a combined visit tally to date of over 13,500 on all of our class blogs I am proud to say that at Westwood school we are becoming truly international.
