20 Jun Day 3 – Erasmus Project International Partner Schools Visit
This was the day that they had all been waiting for… Cooking the Spanish and English recipes at the Hackney School of Food.
The children formed international groups of three to work together in helping each other to understand the recipes in either English or Spanish. As well as understanding the recipes, the Chef showed them how to improve their knife skills safely. The results were Spanish Tortilla, Potato Salad and Coleslaw.
In the afternoon the children attended a conference run by Hackney Education for language teachers to share their experiences of understanding a different culture, improving their language skills and international friendship/partnerships.
Once they addressed the conference they were able to take part in some flamenco and PE workshops while the conference continued.
They all agreed that they had spent a wonderful time with their partners from Tenerife and Portugal and wished it could continue. The partnership will go from strength to strength as our pupils will have more contact with our partners over the next academic year as they move into Year 5.
