During the last week of the spring term, four teachers from the school visited Finland. They spent their time visiting two schools in the city of Oulu. There were over 300 children at the Mylloyojan Koulu. This was a city school that had recently been refurbished.
The second school was set in woodland on the outskirts of Oulu. This school only had 39 children. The staff saw a range of children from 7 - 12. Children 3 - 7 years of age would attend kindergarten. During their time there, the teachers had opportunities to observe lessons, participate in workshops and discuss teaching and learning strategies with teachers from Finland , Austria, France and Ireland. Images from the visit are shown in the gallery below.
In 2013, Llandybie School were fortunate to receive a Comenius grant from the British Council to participate in the European project. The Project will develop relationships and provide opportunities for working with schools from other European countries.
The countries in this project are Austria, Ireland, France, Finland and Wales.
There are opportunities for staff to visit schools in these countries to discuss and observe the different learning outcomes.
These visits provide an opportunity for staff to plan different activities and projects for pupils to participate in. By doing this, they have learned about the seasonal traditions of Easter and Christmas as well as learning stories, songs and traditional games of different countries.
