Global Classroom project – Update on the 5th grader’s Interschool Bilingual Project

This academic year, pupils from Year 5 are participating in a bilingual project with 'The Village School’ in Houston, a Nord Anglia school and sister school of Collège Champittet.  Now that we are half way through the year, here is an update from Mr Whinder on how the project is progressing:  

  • Deux enfants projet Bilingue

“I am pleased to say that the project is going strength to strength, and we have now been joined by another Nord Anglia school; 'The Compass International School' in Doha who had been looking for a similar project for their students. Our students were delighted that another school could join the project. To have three schools, from three different continents, connected through language learning is a wonderful opportunity and really inspiring for our pupils. To see my class open their letters from the US was a special moment and there has been a real interest from the children, wanting to learn about similarities and differences in their school and daily lives.  

 Since exchanging letters the children have been sharing messages through the Global Classroom. The children have been writing their messages in both French and English, to begin with they were a little timid, however once they started to receive replies there has been no stopping them! We all look forward to their weekly lesson to see if there have been any new messages.

 For now, the children will continue to communicate online, leading up to a Skype call after Easter.  Having a chance to speak 'face to face' will be a great way to finish this year's project'.”
