Greenleaf Primary School & Nursery


Erasmus Project Updates

Turkey - February 2020

In February, Mrs Soulard and Mr Scott made the trip to the Metod Koleji school in Ankara, the capital of Turkey.

We were amazed to find out that the children were taught lessons in both Turkish and English!

At the school, the arts were an important part of the learning day and we had the opportunity to see both an art lesson and a dance/music performance by the children of the school, celebrating the founding father of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

Again, we came back full of enthusiasm and ideas to share with the pupils at Greenleaf.  We are looking forward to welcoming our Erasmus partners later in 2020.


Portugal - December 2019

In December, Mr Scott and Ms Franklin went to visit the Escola Basica D. Pedro I school in Porto, Portugal. 


Whilst there, we discovered how important the role of school library is in Portuguese education, with many storytelling lessons being taught there.

The arts also play a significant role in the Portuguese system and we witnessed a hip hop/ dance concert at playtime by the students.

In recent years, there has been a big focus on using public libraries which were not always accessible in Portugal. Here was a trip we took to the Almeida Garrett library.
We came back with an even greater love of books than ever before and buzzing with new ideas to teach reading at Greenleaf.
