We welcome 11 Czech teachers to our school for the week. After attending our Monday assembly and having a tour of the school they said they felt totally inspired! They are here to learn not just about our style of teaching and curriculum, but specifically to find out how we develop and promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural learning. Most of them come from small Czech primary schools with a fairly homogenous Czech population, so coming to a large, multicultural London primary is a real contrast. They will be visiting our classes during this week, joining in with the lessons and may be teaching our children a few Czech words or stories.
