Visit from Tanzania
Clevedon Learning Trust pupils enjoyed the visit of a teacher from their link school in Tanzania - a partnership which is now 10 years old.
Mary Elton Primary School pupils enjoyed the visit of Peter, from their link school in Tanzania, who visited as part of reciprocal international curriculum project.
During the visit, Mary Elton headteacher Dean Hudd named their main building Mikumi - in honour of the link, with the Tanzanian school being situated in the Mikumi National Park.
During the visit, the children learnt about global issues through the link and explored Tanzania's rich culture, its geography, religions and language.
They also have engaged in science projects that looked at disability, buildings and space.
Dean said: “This was an amazing visit by Peter and we were delighted to call our new building Mikumi.
“Through this link we can enrich the curriculum our children experience and make it come alive, while enabling them to participate in real world solutions. We said before he left ‘hakuna matata, we'll see you in 2019’.”
