Event - Inter-School Collaboration

19 September 2011

On September 19th, International Talk Like a Pirate Day, children and staff from Abbey, St Barnabas and Osborne Primary schools all dressed as pirates and worked on pirate themed tasks.

To promote community partnerships and to begin strengthening relationships between the three local schools, children and staff worked together in each others schools.

All Year 6 children and staff from the three schools spent the morning working at St Barnabas School. All Year 5 staff and children collaborated at Osborne School whilst all Year 4 staff and children enjoyed pirating at the Abbey.
