ROCKCLIFFE CE PRIMARY SCHOOL

Hello from Holland

Last week we were fortunate to be visited by a group of teachers from a school in Holland, the st Antoniusschool in Kortenhoef.  

On Tuesday the teachers and their Head Teacher, Mr Frans came into school and watched lessons, talked to the children and had lunch with us.  They returned on Thursday and Mr Frans delivered an assembly about their school to our children before each of the teachers taught a lesson in the classrooms.

Mr Jan told Class 6 all about Holland.  We learned some of the languag and created our own Delft plates..  He had brought letters from the students in Kortenhoef and we replied to them.  We are hoping that this will be the beginning of a regular exchange of ideas between us.

The teachers and their children all speak English really well and this will help them to develop that skill as well as helping us to learn more about life in a different part of the world.

Everyone really enjoyed the visit.
