Sharing a love of culture.
Byline: stephen temlett
A small group of P7 pupils from Lockerbie Primary recently visited Germany as part of the school's Erasmus + project, Energize You Up!
This project is funded by the British Council and involves schools from Moscow in Russia, Potsdam in Germany and Ankara in Turkey.
They spent time in school, working together in different aspects of the project. In addition they had a day in Berlin and a day visiting the sites of Potsdam.
The group shared their favourite playground games, participated in three yoga sessions and enjoyed time experiencing free time activities enjoyed by German children, including table tennis, skateboarding, football, badminton and cycling.
The boys made good friends and enjoyed learning some German during the week.
