Across the week the children visited a number of workshops from 8 different countries and were taught about the culture, language and people from that country by adults who have moved from there into East Renfrewshire. They enjoyed workshops on Pakistan, France, Spain, Japan, Myanmar, Egypt, Poland and South Korea. The children each had a ‘Passport’ to fill out throughout the week, detailing aspects of their learning and once they had visited each country their ‘Passport’ was stamped. On Friday morning in the Gym Hall all classes had a chance to visit all the countries during a ‘Country Carousel’. The ESOL learners presented very comprehensive workshops with a range of activities suited to the age and stages of the pupils. Each class also enjoyed a session in St John’s ‘Cook School’ where they cooked a dish from another country. We finished the week with a short whole school assembly on Friday to thank the ESOL group for the fantastic learning experiences they had provided for us.
