British Council Supported Partnership with Tanzania
As part of our Global Curriculum, and in partnership with the British Council, the children in Year 2 have formed a new link with Bongoyo Primary School, Tanzania. This is part of a British Council Supported Partnership Cluster of schools from the UK and Tanzania.
The first stage of the project was for the two schools to get to know each other. The children in Year 2 have worked together to produce their very own video introducing our school to the students and teachers at Bongoyo Primary School and the students in Tanzania have sent photos and videos to us too.
As both schools are located on the coast, the children at Milford and at Bongoyo are working together on a project linked to Climate Change and Plastic Pollution.
Both schools have visited their beach to do a beach clean and carry out project work!
Year 2 spent the morning investigating plastic pollution and the causes and effects of this.
They decided it would be a good idea to make some posters to encourage people to pick up their litter from the beach.
They also thought about God's creation and wrote prayers to take down to the beach for their worship.
In the afternoon, they headed down to the beach to carry out their beach clean, create some beach art, make a film for our Tanzanian friends and have their worship.
The children even managed to persuade the lady in The Needles Eye Cafe to put some of their posters up in the windows of the cafe!
