Here at West Minster we have decided to improve our understanding of the world by drawing on the links we already have:
We held a Cultural Diversity Day, the children tried food from each country they visited along with either art, dance or a special event. Displays of the activities can be seen in classes.
As a primary school, travelling around the world with the children is hard to achieve, so we have taken the virtual route and will be skyping friends & family in other countries. We aim to speak to someone at least once a month. The countries we have lined up so far include:
May 16th Sri Lanka Video + Visitor
TBA New Zealand Video + Visitor
May 24th China Skype Link
June 7th Japan Skype Link
June 21st America Skype Link
Each month the children will select the best 12 questions to ask our friend at the other end of the line!
You can map our journey round the world below, or come in and see it on the display in school.
