MFL Afternoon 2022
On Monday 21st November, the whole school set off on a journey around the world for an MFL afternoon, which took the children to four different countries with their buddy. In promoting awareness of different modern foreign languages and cultures, children could appreciate the enjoyment and importance of learning another language whilst making sunflowers in Ukraine, lanterns in China, pizzas in Italy and finding out about a francophone country, Benin.
Northgate High School Language Link
Pupils from Northgate High School kindly offered to share some Christmas stories with Emerald and Sapphire Classes. These stories were read by children for whom English was not their first language. They shared with the children how many languages they could speak and then read in either English or Romanian.
Christmas Around The World
This week we have been looking at how Christmas is celebrated around the world. The children spend the afternoon travelling from classroom to classroom with their buddies experiencing customs, language and songs from Sweden, Japan, Mexico and The Philippines.
Autumn Term 2021
This term in our French lessons, we are learning about different places to visit. We are learning the vocabulary for place nouns, how to express our opinions about different places and to describe them using a range of adjectives. We are also learning to ask others about their preferences and how to report their opinions, as well as our own.
