This term we are going to complete a joint project with our Indian friends called 'Myths and Legends'. We will learn about and write Welsh myths and legends to send to India and they will do the same with the Indian myths and legends.
When we recieve them, we will post some on this page for you to read.
Staff From Our Partner School Visit St James
This week the Head Teacher (Mr Emmanuel) and a teacher (Mr Sarkar) from our partner school in India visited our school.
This was their visit to the UK (and Europe) and they've had a fantastic time. It's been an 'eye-opening' experience for them and they've learnt lots about schools and education in Wales.
Although our visitors didn't get a chance to meet all of the children and spend time in all of the classes, the children have loved meeting them, spending time with them, telling them al about life in Wales & Welsh Schools and also finding out about life in India and Indian schools.
On Tuesday they joined some children on a trip to the 'Big Pitt' which they found particularly interesting as their school (Assembly of God Church School) sits on the biggest coalfields in India.
On Wednesday they visited Caerphilly Castle and then spent some time in school watching some lessons and answer lots of questions about what life is like in India.
On Thursday they spent the morning in school watching more lessons and doing some work with the children. Mr Sarkar even taught a maths lesson to a group of children which the children loved! In the afternoon they visited St Fagans to see what life in Wales was like through the various ages.
This morning (Friday) we waved farewell to them as they move on to visiting other parts of Wales and the UK.
We look forward to them visiting our school again sometime and to the exciting work that we're going to be doing with them over the coming months.
Keep checking back to this page of our website for updates on the work that we're doing with them.
Since 2014, St James has been linked with the Assembly of God Church School in Sodepur, West Bengal, India. It is on the eastern side of India, close to Bangladesh.
Last April, Mr Samuel visited the school and met the staff and pupils. In November, two teachers from India will be coming to St James and spending a week with us to find out more about life in Wales.
