Pocklington Infants learned about life in another country last week when five Norwegian student teachers paid them a visit to find out about life in an English school.

The future teachers spent time in a classroom in each year group, observing the teaching and looking at the school’s learning environment.

However, the highlight of their visit for infant school staff and children was when they showed photos of Norway and talked about life there.

A spokesperson for the school said: “All were fascinated to see the height of snow, taller than a person, at the sides of their roads and to hear about how children can use skis to get to school and play on them at playtime!

“The children asked many questions about Norway.

“They had fun trying to pronounce some Norwegian words and the sounds of the three extra letters in their alphabet. The visitors were very complimentary about the behaviour of the children and their ability to listen to and follow instructions.”
