About our Blog

Middlethorpe Academy has a fantastic range of links to schools in other countries and our children love to find out about life in these different places.

Each class has an established link to a group of children in another country in addition to the activities we take part in as a school. At the present time we have links with schools in Poland, Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Greece and Denmark through our Comenius Project and with schools in South Africa and Zimbabwe as part of our Connecting Classrooms work with Africa.

When living in an area that lacks real social diversity it is essential that we enable our children to learn more about different cultures and nurture a respect for others. Our aim is to ‘make the world smaller’ allowing our children to learn about and meet people from different countries and continents and to develop a real understanding of their lives in comparison to their own.
