Last week, Miss Southern represented Sharples School –  and the nation – as one of the four teachers from the UK to attend an eTwinning seminar in Georgia, Eastern Europe.

The aim of the seminar was to make connections with other teachers and schools across Europe and to leave with a project between one or more schools. Sharples left the seminar with four projects in total between countries such as France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Georgia.

We have already started working with our partner school in Normandy (France) which involves learning about D-Day on the Normandy beaches, and hope to begin the other projects in the coming weeks.

This will be the start of many exciting opportunities for our school and it will allow our pupils to make connections with others, their age, abroad.  In addition, they will learn about other cultures.
