Children from year 5 have been taking part in a pedagogical and collaborative etwinning project called ‘Aprender a cooperar. Somos tus profesores/ Learn to cooperate’
This initiative has enabled children to become Spanish and English teachers while exchanging activities and challenges with children from ‘Colegio la Enseñanza’ (Valladolid, Spain) and Burscough Village Primary School (Lancashire, UK)
As a result of our children’s hard work, our project has been awarded with the eTwinning national award in the category ‘Pupil peer learning’.
Here are the judge’s comments about your project:
,This simple but highly effective eTwinning project used peer to peer learning as an integral part of the planning structure. This well planned project developed digital literacy,cultural awareness combined with staff pedagogical development through sharing with a clear curriculum focus on second language skills. Active learning and motivational challenges and activities, often child directed, had a clear motivational impact on the students involved. The visible thinking comparison between Shakespeare and Cervantes addressed the topical 400 year anniversary issue in a way that pulled the partner school's culture fully, equally and inclusively into the heart of the activity. Students taking responsibility for their own learning and for the learning of others in this direct way has developed communication and collaboration skills, leadership skills and citizenship while at the same time effectively achieving the core curriculum outcomes.”
The future of teaching languages is in our children's hands now!
!BIEN HECHO CHICOS! :-)

It’s fun, it’s free and it’s for everyone
The Greggs Breakfast Club scheme provides a simple, nutritious breakfast to children in selected primary schools. Thanks to the generous assistance of volunteer helpers, Greggs are able to provide this breakfast free of charge.
Eating breakfast has been shown to make a difference to children’s concentration in lessons and may have longer-term learning benefits. What’s more, coming to the Breakfast Club is a lot of fun!
