A SKIPTON nursery school celebrated the recent European Day of Languages with the launch of its new e-twinning partnership.

Brougham Street Nursery School has joined an online community for schools in Europe, and in some other neighbouring countries, aimed at providing a platform to work on shared interest projects.

It is co-funded by the Erasmus Programme of the European Union and is managed in the UK by the British Council.

Class teacher, Dr. Alison Stewart said the children would be collaborating on a story called ‘Story boxes and tales in pre-elementary school’ in which they will initially focus on sharing traditional rhymes, before moving on to sharing traditional tales.

The first story they will share will be ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ in the project led by a school in Rillieux La Pape, near Lyon, which also has partners in Poland and Lithuania.

“The children and staff are excited about getting started with the project and are looking forward to making new friends and learning new songs and stories to add to their repertoire,” she said.
