Every year on 26th September, the European day of Languages is celebrated and is a day where people in Europe can celebrate all the diverse languages and cultures across the world. It is a day to celebrate all the languages that we can learn and to enjoy listening to and speaking them. This year, we celebrated by greeting our students in a new language and students were able to greet their teacher back in a different language. There were lots of ‘Moy Moy’ (Finnish), ‘Buenos días’ (Spanish) and ‘Ahój’ (Czech) across the school and pupils also practised these in their MFL lessons. We also had a languages form quiz where forms competed against each other in 30 questions based on different languages and countries. The standard was so high but 11G came out triumphant, followed closely by 9H, 9G, 7H and 10J. Well done!
KS3 had the opportunity to enjoy taking part in the poster competition which again proved to be highly popular and successful. We were inundated with entries to our poster competition and I have genuinely never seen such a high quality of entries in all my years of teaching – deciding on winners was almost impossible. We divided the winners into year groups and our winners and runners up enjoyed receiving their goody boxes of prizes. A huge thank you to everyone that entered, the standard was very high. I have displayed all the work in our hall for all our staff to see. Huge congratulations and special mentions go to:
