 Mrs Hartley attends the E Twinning Conference in Budapest 2018

As a Global Hub school, we are committed to fostering educational links with International partners. Mrs Hartley has recently attended a British Council three day conference in Budapest, where she has made links with many teachers from across Europe. She will be involved in co-ordinating linked learning for pupils across our school, as part of the year long project entitled: ’Being Sustainable.’ Our partner schools are in Poland, Portugal, Hungary and other areas of England. At the conference there was also a big focus on pupil’s digital literacy and using technology as a medium for all of the project schools to communicate and learn more about each other’s countries, cultures and environmental ideas.

Only one world

The school choir recorded a video to one of our favourite songs “Only one world” as we have decided to adapt it as our official school song. We performed it on many different occasions to important visitors including our MP Angela Smith and John Rolfe from the British Council and they both loved it. The song has an important message about sharing, caring, looking after our world and working together. It features images from our school as well as from our partner schools in Finland and the Mfensi Methodist Primary school in Ghana.

Tankersley’s celebration of the world

On Thursday 13th July we held our whole school global showcase – Tankersley’s celebration of the world. It was a wonderful evening and one that our community will remember forever.

What fantastically talented pupils we have! Every class performed an act linked to the topic they learnt about in class and they were all brilliant. We had a Bollywood dance, a Lion King Dance, music, dancing and drama about The Great Fire of London and World War II, a piece about Mammoth Hunters, the Vikings and even a Mexican brass band. Parents and carers joined in too and the ukulele band with “electrifying Elvis” was another hit as was the duo of local folk musicians. Well done to all the individual performers too for being so brave and well prepared. The evening finished with the school choir singing the Streets of London and What do I know by Ed Sheeran, both songs with a really important message. We are incredibly proud of our community for coming together, celebrating our talents and achievements but also remembering our values. Well done everyone!
