Tianjian Primary School, Futian District, Shenzhen, China is 5, 893 miles away from St Joseph’s Primary School, Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, England.
There are so many differences between where we live and go to school but the one similarity is that we are developing an international link so we can learn from each other. Miss Hopps was invited by University of Durham to teach in the school. She taught English, Mathematics and Science lessons, just how she would teach in St Joseph’s. The theme of all the lessons was Harry Potter. The last lesson was for the children to write a postcard to the children at St Joseph’s Primary School. Miss Hopps brought these back to school and then all the children at St Joseph’s read and then wrote a postcard back to the children at Tianjian Primary School. We are all waiting to hear if the postcards have arrived in China. After the half term holiday break all the St Joseph’s children will be taking part in experiences of Tianjian Primary School.
