Postcards, Posters and Friendship
Monmouth Town Twinning is delighted to have been granted funding from Monmouth Town Council for an exciting project linking primary schools in Monmouth and Carbonne.
The project allows primary age pupils to experience the joy in cross-cultural friendships by setting up ‘penfriend’ links.
To do this we have engaged with the Learning Schools Network, headed by Monmouth Comprehensive School, comprising Osbaston, Usk, Overmonnow, Kymin View, Raglan, Llandogo and Trellech Primary Schools.
Led by Osbaston School, children from Years 3-6 in network schools will undertake a ‘Primary Twinning Project’: communicating with their peers in Carbonne schools; learning about their lives; and practising their emerging French language skills.
The Celebration Event:
Monmouth Comprehensive School will host the ‘Postcards, Posters and Friendship Event’ to celebrate these links and showcase the pupils’ work. Displays, prepared by the pupils from each Monmouth School, will show their letters and postcards and what they have learnt about the lives of friends – all in French! The event will invite guests from the town, including parents, carers, town councillors, and representatives of youth organisations (sports teams, scouts, guides etc) whom we could interest in linking with their Carbonne counterparts.
