Elm Wood Primary School

Schools Linking Project.

We have joined the Schools Linking Project this year. Class 11 (Year 5) will be linking with St. Gabriels, in Middleton, as part of a new pilot project organised by Coventry University. 

Tne Linking project aims to:

  • Develop and deepen children's knowledge and understanding of identity, diversity, equality and community.
  • Develop skills of enquiry, critical thinking, reflection and communication.
  • develop trust, empathy, awareness and respect.
  • Provide opportunities for children to meet, build relationships, work together and contribute to the wider community.

The Linking Network supports schools to design programmes of work for their curriculum which allow everyone to develop a deep sense of connection and therefore become actively engaged in the world.

We will be attending the M6 Theatre Company production of a Tiger's Tale together and visiting each others schools. We will also be connecting through Skype and writing letters.
