Visit from South Africa - 02 July 2012
Following a successful bid to the Schools Council Hermitage Primary and Kgolagona Primary have formed a partnership. We have been sending e mails to eachother and last week the Deputy Headteacher Mr Khoza and Ms Mofokeng visited our school for 5 days.
We took them to the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester - where our 2 windbands were playing with the Halle orchestra. We visited Macclesfield Academy and were shown around by a group of Year 10 pupils. They spent question and answer sessions in each class and talked with the children. At the weekend they visited the Warrington Wolves ground, Liverpool and Chester. Their evenings were busy too a visit to the Trafford Centre, a canal boatride in Lymm and supper at my home.
This is just the beginning of this journey of learning and one we are so happy to be involved in.

Year 4 had a very exciting day at Weaver Hall Museum. They found out all about the salt industry, discovered how salt was made and handled original artefacts. They learned about 'Changing Materials' and tried out experiments in dissolving, filtering and evaporation to refine rock salt into white salt.
In the afternoon they worked on their persuasive skills. They became advertising executives to persuade people to visit the museum. They have already started applying these skills in school during Literacy lessons.
