On Tuesday and Wednesday, we hosted a visit from our international friends all the way from China! Eighteen students (aged 9-11 years old) and five teachers from Wuluju No. 1 School (formerly Anzhen Li No.2 School) came to Peterbrook to further develop the international links we have between our schools and to also experience the excitement of a new and totally different curriculum.
The visit was a huge success as it saw Peterbrook and AnZhen pupils working together in a variety of curriculum subjects and joint activities involving ages ranging from Year 2 to Year 6. In addition to this we shared together a wonderful assembly of international performing arts as we saw our guests perform.
We have a long history of links with China. AnZhen Li No.2 Primary School, Beijing hosted Peterbrook Primary School staff and pupils in May 2008, prior to the Beijing Olympic Games.
Peterbrook Primary School to host AnZhen Li No.2 Primary School staff and pupils in May 2012, prior to the London Olympic Games with a focus on our ‘Friendship Mini-Olympic Games’ event.
The two day visit saw our guests having tasty school lunches with our pupils; they played together happily outdoors and they engaged in a variety of Chinese workshops and National Curriculum lessons.
Looking forward, we have been invited to take pupils to Beijing in June 2018 to engage in a variety of activities. It is our hope that our international friendship will continue to grow from strength to strength for the benefit of our pupils as they grow up in an ever shrinking world and within a global economy.
