International Day of Languages

The whole school enjoyed a day of cultural and language activities, celebrating some of the countries represented at Malmesbury. We all went into our Children’s Council groups for the day and learned some common phrases in the language we were studying. These were taught by two experts, children who speak the language at home and could make sure we got our pronunciation correct. We listened to a traditional story, created a piece of artwork from that culture and learned a traditional dance, which we then performed in front of the rest of the school. It was lovely to see the different types of dance and art from all over the world; we had countries from Europe, Asia, Africa and South America represented. Thank you so much to the parents who helped with authentic activities and to our language experts.

Fairthorne Manor

Year 6 are very fortunate that they have the opportunity to attend a 5 day residential in June. The children always have a fantastic time sleeping in tents and spending quality time with their friends before they leave to go to high school. A letter has already gone out about this trip and the deposit is due in very soon. If you would love anymore information or need another letter then please ask at the office. Here is the link to the Fairthorne Manor website so that you can have a look for yourselves.
