In the beginning of December we visited collegues and pupils of London! We run lessons and workshops in the Chelsea Children Hospital and the Collingham Centre. We also participated in outdoor activities such as horse-riding lesson and a trip in the Surrey countryside :)
Thank you for this great time!
Our Comenius trip to London was a very interesting and unforgettable experience . We
visited Chelsea Community Hospital School which is the only hospital school in London that
works across four London hospitals . Due to time constrains we visited only two sites :
Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Collingham Child and Family Centre where we
received a warm welcome from the Staff. We had an opportunity to tour the unit and meet
children and teachers .
We took part in Horse Riding session ( Equine therapy )
classes with younger students .We spent afternoon doing eco-animation with students using
recycled material .
We also made a presentation for all Staff about our school and the work we have been doing
towards Comenius .
We were happy to go for The Queen’s walk which took us over Westminster Bridge . along
the South Bank of the River Thames towards Tate Modern then back over the river on the
Millenium footbridge to St.Paul’s Cathedral . We had a chance to enjoy some of London’s
most popular tourist attractions .
On the second day we met with older students to observe a lesson and give a presentation
about our city and country . After that we organised a short quiz with prizes .
At Chelsea and Westminster Hospital we had a chance to tour the hospital and made a
Christmas gingerbread cookies workshop with younger students .
We had an opportunity to
attend a training course led by Luke Abott entitled “ Mantle of the Expert “ .
We went for an amazing day trip to Surrey Wildlife Trust for a workshop on interdependence
with students and teachers from Collingham Child and Family Centre .
Our closing session with all the Staff was an opportunity to share work and discuss next steps
in our cooperation .
We are grateful for the warm welcome and we hope to meet our Comenius Partners again !
