Erasmus+ has enabled pupils at Appleby Primary School to experience unparalleled opportunities to connect with their peers across Europe. During the remainder of the school year, pupils and staff will visit Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Bulgaria and Portugal to celebrate connections across the continent and the unique cultural heritage and identities within each location.
In March, we will welcome visitors to Appleby from Romania, Turkey, Italy, Portugal and Bulgaria. In order to learn about each of those countries and to prepare an extra special welcome, pupils across the entire school enjoyed an extra special European Week last week. Children researched a country assigned to each class; finding out about the geography and history of each location. They also prepared and sampled traditional foods, created amazing art work and even learned traditional dances.
Each class has made a display and prepared a presentation to share with our visitors when they come to school and had great fun taking part in European Week.
