NANTES/NOTTINGHAM CITY SCHOOL PARTERSHIP LINK
Marie-Line went to Windmill Primary to help with the videoconferencing session with Gustave Roch primary school in Nantes (France) as part of the Nantes/Nottingham City School Partnership agreement which was established two years ago, with 16 primaries and 4 secondaries participating in the partnership.
The aim of the partnership is to foster links between our two countries to promote the global dimension in learning, to improve pupils’ knowledge and understanding of another culture and language, to contextualise their learning of a foreign language and...to have fun with pupils their own age from another country!
The Nantes Académie (the equivalent of Nottingham’s Children Services) has purchased the Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro Meeting licence and put it at the Nottingham schools’ disposal for secure web conferencing, sharing of resources, documents and photos live. Below, Jane, Year 4 teacher, is seen chatting with French pupils, in English and French.
