Madame Tate's Flags of the World Activity

Greetings to you all! I don't know about you but I love flags! I love the colours, I love trying to find out which one belongs to which country and I also really enjoy colouring in. 

If you would like to find out more about all the different flags in the world, follow this link for a fun way to learn.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGcRe4lt4z4 

Here's  a worksheet to print off and guide you ..... FLAGS OF THE WORLD 

Finally, here's another link to help with all that colouring! https://flagpedia.net/

Have fun and learn lots!

Lockdown fun with flags

office on: INTERNATIONAL BLOG

Macy and several other children completed the Flag challenge by finding a flag for every country of the alphabet. They then coloured in the flag templates and, as you can see, completed an amazing piece of work. Macy's smile shows you how proud she is..... and rightly so too!

News from India

office on: INTERNATIONAL BLOG

After a long silence, we were delighted to receive an email from our link school in New Delhi. Sadly, schools have been closed since March 2020. We very much hope that they will soon reopen, and we will be able to share projects again. We love the work we share with our friends in India.

Here is the e-mail.....

Dear Mrs Tate,

A very Happy and hopefully a healthy 2021 for us all. The past year was a huge disappointment for us all, here in India the schools completely shut down from MARCH 2020 and till date are in a lockdown for both students and teachers. The basic infrastructural staff ( maids, cleaners, sweepers,etc) come in small numbers every alternate day. 

We hope and pray that you and your children's health is good. This past year was a troubled year and we are still unaware how long this shut down will last in India.

 

Hope we can keep our hopes floating in 2021.

 

Best regards

Dr Shivani ñ

They have arrived!!

office on: INTERNATIONAL BLOG

                

The postcards from our link school in Chaumont, France have arrived! They are beautifully written in French handwriting ( quite challenging for us to read when we are not used to the way some letters are formed ) and decorated with pictures on the front.

Class 4 will read them in detail next term and get to know our newFrench  friends. We hope this is the start of many more projects..

World Book Day 2019 - Stories from Around the World

office on: International Links

                                   

      

How could we learn a little more about the wider world? Why not through a story from another country? Madame Tate arranged for every class in school to be visited by a parent who was able to share a story from a country with which they have links. It was a brilliant experience for the children and each class enjoyed hearing their story. Thank you so much to all the parents who helped.

Our photos tell our story (and there might be more pictures to follow once they've been uploaded). It has been an amazing International Week finale today. We would like to say a huge thank you to Madame Tate for all her organisation and facilitation; to the teachers for their hard work, determination and creativity; to the children for their active engagement and tireless enthusiasm and to everyone who contributed in any way. We couldn't have enjoyed such wide ranging travel experiences without you all.

Have a lovely half term and enjoy a well earned rest after all your hard work and all the many travelling miles you have covered this week!

What better way to learn about our friends in India than by growing a Friendship Tree? That's exactly what Year 1 have been doing recently. They received some beautifully decorated handmade leaves all the way from Delhi. We were able to read about the children who had sent them because they had written a little bit about themselves on the back. Most seem to love mango which is considered to be "The King of Fruits" in India and they decorated lotus leaves which are offered to Saraswati, the Goddess of Education.

We've sent some beautiful leaves of our own back where they will be read and displayed  on the Friendship Tree in Delhi.

Thank you to Miss Reynolds for organising this lovely project.

Madame Tate has received an email about our Year 1 leaves for our Friendship Tree. We wanted to share that with you here:

Greetings for the day!

 

We have received the wonderful leaves made by your students, they are immensely immaculate and well coloured. We are happy to gain so much knowledge about your flora. The school is on a summer break and shall open on the 1st July, all the leaves received from all of our partner schools shall be displayed in the school. I will mail you some pictures then.

Hope you had as much fun on this project as we did!

 

Regards

Year 2 had their own little Fiesta last week and were introduced to some traditional Spanish food. In the videos below, they will tell you (in Spanish) what they enjoyed and what they didn't enjoy! We are going to share this with some children in The British Council School in Madrid and find out which British food our Spanish friends like best.
