On Friday the 2nd of October we had a special Visitor arrive in our school all the way from China. Zhang Shuai is an English Teacher and is director of Foreign Affairs in his school in Chengdu. We are very fortunate to have a partnership with his school, where we can share best practice and learn about the cultures and traditions in both schools. Zhang Shuai was able to see how the children learn and is very keen to share our ICT skills and resources with his school in China. In assembly the children were able to learn about some of the lessons that are taught in Tanghu Elementary school and in March this year Miss Snowden and Mrs Greenwood will be visiting china during the Easter Holiday’s and visiting Tanghu Elementary school where we will be able to video conference with school and share their experiences through a blog. Here is a video of the school and some photographs of his visit to Herringthorpe Junior school, we would personally like to thank Zhang Shuai for his special gifts that he brought for us.
