We were delighted to welcome seven teachers from Gothenburg, Sweden on Thursday 26th January 2017. In Gothenburg, many primary schools have had new arrivals with Swedish as an additional language.
They came to Osmani Primary School to see what strategies we apply to support our new to English pupils. They were fascinated by the phonics programme we use and were impressed by the progress made by new to English pupils that recently joined the school.
They were especially impressed by the way we cater for the needs of all the children by putting interventions in place in order for the pupils to make accelerated progress.
They thoroughly enjoyed the Chinese New Year Assembly performed by KS1 pupils. They commented on how the children were confident speakers!
We wish them a safe journey home!
