European day of Languages

December 2015

Every September we take part in the European day of Languages and celebrate all languages. This year, we had a special focus on Arabic. The children and staff were able to join in songs, learn some basic vocabulary, have a go at writing Arabic, listen to some Arabic music and colour in some beautiful mosaic patterns.

Miss Tamara even went to some classes and read the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ in Arabic. We also had a quiz about languages and finished off the afternoon by tasting some samples of Arabic food: some olives, bread, humus and dates. Well done to all for taking part and thank you for the beautiful posters promoting language learning!

Languages

All pupils from nursery to Year 6 learn a modern foreign language. At Hawkshead Road, all pupils learn French. At Gwenneth Rickus, all pupils learn Spanish. Both sites have a  gifted and talented group who learn both French and Spanish.
