Children enjoy a day of languages

All children from Year 2 to Year 6 took part in language lessons.

On Thursday 16th and Friday 17th June the school hosted 60 trainee teachers from the Institute of Education.  The trainees are all language specialists in secondary schools. As part of their training they need to teach a language lesson to children in a primary school.

There was a wide range of languages taught including Spanish, French, German, Italian and Mandarin.  All children from Year 2 to Year 6 took part in the language lessons.  Some children learned about animals in French and others learned some colours in Mandarin.  The children really enjoyed the sessions so make sure you ask them about what they learned.
