Last week of June 2023 a group of 16 students from 3º de ESO and two teachers from the English department were for one week in Sharples school in Britain . It was an amazing week in which our British friends opened the doors of their school and showed us what it is like to live and work in Bolton . Our students were not hosted by British families as there were issues with the British families but they were matched with a British student with whom they attended lessons and participated together in activities. Here are some of the activities we did while in England:
- travelled in double-decked school buses to get to the school
2. tour around the school premises
3.-attended different lessons with our British friends
4.-school trips to Lake district and Liverpool
5.-Pizza dinner and lunch with our British friends
6.-Visited a local business: a farm
It was a very busy week for everyone but our students , after one week realised they could undestand British accent and of course put into practice everyhing learnt .
We had already received the British students in April 2022 but because of the high number of students visiting, 60, it was impossible to do activities in the school .Besides we still had the looming shadow of COVID very near . ,Our headmaster had also serious concern to mix our students with the foreign visitors . I hope we can do better next time. I'm sure of it!
Anyway we thank Catherine Liddy for all the effort made and for giving all of us the opportunity to go to England. Our relationionship with Sharples School dates back to 2017 , when we started an email project . It is also great to discover that Spanish is learnt in England and that Sharples school has such an interest in us . Thanks for everything. Next year we will go back . Here are some pictures of our week .
