International Work

At Botanic Primary School, we are very proud of our international work. We received the British Council International School Award in 2011 and again in 2014. In September 2013, we began work on our new two year Comenius Project and were so excited to be working with schools in Spain, Greece, England, Turkey, Poland and Italy. Our project finished in June 2015. The theme for our project was transport and Botanic PS led the section of our project that focused on ships. We planned a full and exciting itinerary for the pupils in all the participating schools during the project. Visit our Comenius Corner in the school library to find out more about the project.

Have a look below for some of the work and activities we completed as part of our project.

 

 

Our P6 French Pen-pals

This year, P6 are learning about celebrations in France and have been corresponding with the classes of l'ecole Jean-Michel Langevin in Western France. Together they learnt about Christmas in France with traditional food and we made crackers for our pen-pals. They loved them as you can see...

Our school was in charge of editing the lipdub. Each school sent us a video for us to use. Here is the final product!

Year 3's Lifeboat Presentation

Yesterday, Y5 had a super exciting day, especially as we had our first video conference with one of our Comenius partner schools! We spent a great session with Belen, Jose-Antonio and their pupils, talking about ourselves and our project work. Well done to all the Spanish pupils who showed us their fantastic work on trains - particularly the model trains they have made - they are excellent! Perhaps next time Y7 will be able to showcase their Titanic models they have made.

P4 visit SS Nomadic

Below you can watch P5's two video clips. We collected information about the Titanic for our Comenius partners. We hope you like our Titanic facts!
