International School Award Projects

Generation Project

Our children have been working on the 'Generations Project'. Firstly, pupils will investigate the relationships between younger and older generations in their own communities. Beginning with questions such as: 'how do we care for the elderly?' and 'how do our families contribute to our development?' The children carried out investigations in the local and school community. They also designed their own questionnaires and will chose the most effective one before taking them home. They then collated the questionnaires and spoke with friends and family outside school before bringing their findings back to school. Finally the sent their findings to children in our partner schools in China and Spain and asked them how they view different generations in their community.

Culture in a Box

As part of our International School award, for the past few months, a selection of children from all years have been involved in the ‘Culture Boxes’ project. In this project, the children were tasked with filling their own box with things that remind them of Liverpool. We did this so that we are able to share them with our international schools we are linked with.


Playground Games Exchange 


The children  worked hard to narrow down a (very) long list of their favourite playground games. Once they had decided a favourite, they independently created a video tutorial to send onto the international airways and arrive at our international link schools.
