Year 6 would like to say a huge thank you to Jasmin, our visiting teacher from Germany. Jasmin spent a fortnight at Michael Faraday, observing how we teach, as well as spending valuable time teaching in each class from Nursery through to Year 6. An after school club was put in place for a selection of our Year 6 pupils. The focus for these sessions was mainly language based, as well as a look at German culture and history.
Jasmin also kindly agreed to take part in a Q & A session with all of our pupils at the end of her time at Michael Faraday School. We took this opportunity to compare the school day for children at Michael Faraday, and the pupils in Germany. Some of us were shocked to discover that the teaching day in Germany starts at 7:30 in the morning! Our small taste of German life came to an end with a German food tasting session. Many thanks to Jasmin and the amazing effort that she contributed to our school community. You can catch up with the thoughts of some of our Year 6 pupils in the podcast below.
