Languages Day 2019

For this year’s Languages Day we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. We began with an assembly exploring the history of the wall and thought about how people would have been affected by it. Then we spent the day on various activities around this theme, including geography, art and German language activities and a wide game where children had to find German words around the playground. We baked gingerbread men and heard German music from the time.

Languages Day 2018

We had a fantastic day learning about some of the countries and languages represented at our school, culminating in a showcase at the end of the day. Thank you to our wonderful language experts who taught us lots of new phrases in different languages from Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.

A la maison

Once again, we entered the Kingston and Merton Primary Languages group language competition. Year 6 wrote adaptations based on the surrealist poem Dans Paris... by Paul Eluard. Here is a selection of their poems. Congratulations To Aiza and Mekavi, who won Best Story category with their poem, Dans New York.

Parlez-vous français?

In July, Year 5 were very excited to be speaking to their French pen-pals via Skype. Our children prepared a few sentences in French and our pen-pals spoke in English. It was sometimes a bit difficult to understand, but it was nice to see each other. Find out more about our pen-pals on our 'International Links' page.



Voyage dans l'espace

Kingston & Merton run a language competition and last year it was on the theme of Outer Space. 

Here are some of our entries, including our winning entry in the 'Model' category, from Sutapi. Congratulations, Sutapi, and well done to all of you who took part.
