Yealmpstone Farm Primary School

'The doorway to learning for the whole community.'

International Work

Yealmpstone Farm Primary School has been committed to the teaching of a global curriculum for more than 15 years; embedding international values alongside British values in our school syllabus to promote cultural cohesion and mutual understanding. Past International activities have included: three Comenius partnerships, two Erasmus Plus projects with European countries, pupil exchanges with Spain, Poland, Sweden, Turkey, Belgium, Germany, The Netherland Portugal and France, teacher and headteacher visits to Japan and China, regular faith speakers and the teaching and learning of Modern Foreign Languages. Last year, our pupils were offered the opportunity to learn about Japanese culture and language as an afterschool club. In addition to this, our school has been granted the International School Award, the Fairtrade status and the Eco School.

Yealmpstone Farm value cultural links with other schools across the world. Currently we have three projects we are working on:

  • Erasmus + Brest project: This is a three year project with a group of schools in Brest and two aquariums which is focusing on the impact of living in a city close to the sea.
  • Erasmus + Belgium project: This is a two year project which is focusing on sharing culture and language through song.
  • Mayflower 400: This project involves the schools designing banners and sharing them with partner schools in Boston, USA. It will culminate in many activities which will take place in 2020.

Erasmus 17-19 Project

This is a singing project which we are working on with a school in Belgium, a school in Turkey and a school in Spain. Each school are learning thirteen songs in French and holding a concert in their own country, then in April 2019 we will have a concert together with all the children singing the songs. In this project we seek to encourage children to share values, culture and friendship, thus building trust and understanding with our European neighbours.
