I am delighted to inform you that our school is taking part in Erasmus+ School Partnerships project called ‘Sounds around Us’.
About Erasmus+ –
Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020. Erasmus+ aims to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education. It offers exciting opportunities for UK participants to then study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad in Europe.

In November 2016 our school hosted participants from our partner schools – Poland, Latvia and Lithuania.
In February 2017 two teachers went to Poland where children explored the links between electricity and sound as well as sound inventions through practical exploration.
In May 2017 four children and four teachers went to Lithuania where children investigated music powered by electricity; explored and created sound using new technologies.
In October 2017 four children and four teachers went to Poland where children learnt about rhythm.

In February (18th – 24th) 2018 four children and four teachers will go to Latvia.
This is a great opportunity for our children to visit a different country, to make new friends, to be able to communicate with children from different European countries.
