Kirk Sandall Infant School

Connecting Classrooms Project


We were given a fantastic opportunity to travel to Dalian in China with a team of teachers from six schools in Doncaster.  The purpose of the visit was to reconnect with our partner schools Nan Ping Primary and Xigang Kindergarten who Mrs Foster visited. On this occasion we focused upon observing their sport provision, PE curriculum and how they promote physical development and well-being in children.

During the visit we spent two days working in each school, observing in the classrooms, teaching lessons, joining in with PE activities and experiencing Chinese culture. We were really enjoyed watching the morning and afternoon exercises that all children took part in every day. It was so impressive to see their skills in skipping, dancing, diablo and basketball. We are hopeful that this experience will help us to introduce new ideas and activities that support children’s physical and holistic development and develop the teaching and learning of PE in our school.

We are planning to facilitate the opportunity for families in our school to make email contact with families attending Xigang Kindergarten in Dalian. If you would like to know more please come and talk to us in school and we would be happy to share with you!
