Kenyan visitors impressed with Amble young learners

Kenyan-teacher-visitAmble First School recently welcomed head teachers from Nairobi, Kenya to our town, as part of their ongoing Connecting Classrooms project.

Funded by the British Council, the aim of the project is to promote global education and international understanding through shared topic work and friendship.

Pupils really enjoyed showing their work to the guests, who took part in lessons and answered many, many, many questions about their own schools, lives and country.

The African visitors took part in Beach School activities on The Little Shore, when lessons in all subjects transferred to the seashore for the day and were impressed by the high levels of imagination and creativity that the children demonstrated in their work. They also joined in classroom work at Edwin Street – the picture shows them participating in a year 4 maths lesson.

This visit will be followed up with a return trip to Nairobi by UK staff next year, offering similar learning experiences to children in the partner schools in Kenya and providing a host of exciting new ideas for staff and pupils at Amble First to explore.
