This is the school that we have been fortunate to have been linked with. The initial project under the Connecting Classrooms banner has been awarded to focus on Shakespeare, as 2016 is widely regarded as Shakespeare Year to commemorate 400 years since his death.

One aim is to link and discuss the education systems in our respective schools with Lincolnshire hosting a delegation of head teachers from Tangshan province in July and a reciprocal visit of class teachers in October. Teachers travelling to China will be expected to teach in classes and take part in Shakespeare activities.

The children will exchange getting to know you activities and study extracts of the same Shakespeare play. Scenes will be dramatised and the films exchanged and discussed.

Tangshang Fengnan school has 1000 pupils and 67 staff, somewhat larger than North Cockerington

We have exchanged letters and pictures of our school,instructions of how to try out playground games, letters to the children and illustrated letters of the alphabet have been sent.

Have a look at the PowerPoint showing our partner school in China.
