Why are we going to Shanghai?

Date: January 10, 2013 Author: Admin Categories: Shanghai 2013

Miss Haughey and Mrs Davies will not be in school tomorrow and for the whole of next week (14th – 18th Jan 2013). This is because our school has been selected to be part of a national party of just twenty four schools who are travelling to China to research teaching methods in Maths and Science. We shall be visiting a number of schools in the Shanghai area, looking at teachers teaching and children learning. We shall have the chance to talk with leaders in education within the area about policy and practice in education in China. We are looking forward to speaking with teachers and children to find out about their experiences in the Chinese educational system.

We aim to keep in touch with school in our absence by keeping a daily blog (a web based diary) that children and their families can log into to see what we have been doing. This has been explained to children today in assembly, and I know that teachers in school will be keen to share our blog with children in school next week. If you would like to keep up with our adventure at home come back and visit our website again.
