As part of our Geography studies, Year 4 are working closely this year with our link school in sunny Barcelona!
Saliesians Ripoll is a mixed primary school and have been working with our school for over 3 years.

Introducing Salesians Ripoll to the Year 4 children. They will be shown a video message from the Salesian children, introducing themselves and giving a tour of their school. The video will represent a typical day in their school. They will also send a video, in return, introducing St Francis de Sales.
Check out the video from Salesians Ripoll below:
To link with the Design and Technology food curriculum, Year 4 will work together with Salesians Ripoll to discuss their lunch choices. The children will find out what each have in their typical lunch box and then work on a collaborative plan to make a healthy version of their typical lunch. The two schools complete taste tests, based on each other’s food suggestions, share their recipes and create video and photograph evidence of the process.
During the Year 6 residential, children will meet up and visit the Salesians Ripoll school. Year 6 children will bring letters from our Year 4 children and return letters from the Salesian children. The letters will thank the children and highlight what they have enjoyed about their partnership.
