We are the oldest children at St.Oswald's Primary School in Burneside, Cumbria, England. We've been developing our global links for the last seven years. We've been recognised twice through the International School Award as meeting the standard set down by the British Council in terms of our overseas projects. This is our class wikispace, which we use to share our work in Mr Humble's class with our friends in other countries. Check out our residential trip to Hawse End in the Lake District on this link ... Adventure Learning at Hawse End ... where we explored wild areas and worked towards our John Muir awards, increasing our knowledge of trees and woods through our Woodland Project ...

We worked in four teams of four on different sections using the plan below (by Cara). The sections were made out of card girders and we had to make sure that the quality of each part was maintained throughout the project. We hope you like it.
