Global Week 2017

Our Annual 'Global Week' began the week after the Easter holidays with all children in school and the Nursery visiting different places around the world! 
Our week began with children arriving at Banks International Airport for check in for their flights to the capital cities of the countries we were about to visit.  Children had to go through airport security to ensure they were safe to travel on the plane, followed by a flight to their destination.
Once in their countries the children learnt about the different languages, traditions and culture of their country as well as the Geography, landmarks and wildlife. 
Our week culminated with an assembly to share what we had learnt from our travels, and a trip around the world day on Friday.  Children came dressed in traditional outfits or proudly wearing the colours of their country's flag.  They went to visit 2 different countries on this day and could compare their country to where other classes had been.
