We are very proud of the international work which the pupils do at Steeton School. We often take part in eTwinning projects which link with our Creative Curriculum work and our French learning. Many of these projects use ‘eTwinning’ – a Europe wide network of teachers and schools, funded by the European Union. We believe that, for pupils at Steeton Primary, working with their peers in other countries has become a regular part of their curriculum.
We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the eTwinning School label. Only 29 schools in the UK have received this accolade! The label is awarded to schools who have run high quality European eTwinning projects across the school, with a good approach to eSafety and who have promoted eTwinning to other schools.
Our recent international eTwinning projects are listed separately – we hope you enjoy reading about our work in our eTwinning projects pages!
Link with Brittany
We have a long-term link with a school in Brittany – the École St Vincent in Brest. All children from Years 1 to 6 exchange Christmas cards with the children in France every year. This year, our Key Stage 1 pupils all have a penfriend in the French school and are writing to them every term.
Link with Finland
In June 2016, Mrs Salminen and Mrs Kokko visited our school. In October 2017, Mrs Linford visited their school in Oulu, Finland. We have been finding out about the Finnish school from her!
