Here at SS Peter & Paul we have continued to foster links between children and teachers from around the world.
We have undertaken a number of activities throughout his academic year as a school to enhance the learning of different languages , countries and cultures. We have enjoyed learning about different countries and the languages they speak.
At first the world might seem rather large but it is actually quite small when we can chat and talk to anyone anywhere.
