Horsforth Newlaithes

Primary School

Christmas in England

We set a whole school homework where we asked the children to research Christmas traditions which we could share with the Spanish children. The work was fantastic! We had videos, PowerPoints and pictures. Thank you for your support with this, it was lovely to see the children working with their siblings to complete the homework.

At Newlaithes, we are passionate about promoting equality, diversity and tolerance. As part of our work on this, we are lucky enough to have a link with a school in Lleida, Spain. Our children in years 4, 5 and 6 have a penpal in Spain and they love to write and receive letters. In addition to this, we complete colaborative projects which enable the children to learn about different cultures. It is a very successful partnership and we look forward to our future work with Sant Jaume Les Heures.
