This week three members of our partner school CEIP Peñalta in Spain came to visit us. They observed various classes from Year 1 to Year 6 and were impressed by our methodology and notebooks. They also really enjoyed the way we teach maths and phonics.
What surprised them was the difference in the school system as children here in England do not have exams every year and do not retake the year. It has been a very productive exchange which will help us to develop further projects together. You can read about what they thought of Central Primary School on their blog http://ceippenalta.blogspot.com/
On the 4th of February, two of our teachers Mr Jaffer and Mrs Ribeiro will go to Spain to visit their school and will share with the school their thoughts on this cultural exchange.
