Primary School

Please let Mrs Holmes know if you have any ideas for projects you would like to do with our partner schools. 
Penpals

We have links with schools in Spain and India here at Newlaithes. Mrs Holmes runs an International club where children in key stage 2 have had the opportunity to write to children in both India and Spain. You can see from these pictures how much the children love to receive their post! The Christmas cards were from India and children in year 4 liaised several times with Spanish children including sending postcards at the end of the year wishing each other a happy summer holiday. These activities provide the children with an excellent opportunity to learn about other cultures and to share their own.

Heritage day

We had a special day in school where children explored and shared their Heritage. We set a whole school homework where children were asked to find out about the roots of their families. Many of the children found out that they had links around the world which they didn't know about. It was wonderful for the children to share their rich and diverse Heritage with each other. We then celebrated this diversity within Newlaithes by each year group displaying some artwork which had been inspired by their Homework.
