Language AmbassadorsPosted on: 16/07/2018
This summer the MFL Language Ambassadors have been busy planning and preparing language sessions to deliver to local primary school students. Last year our students went to St Peter’s Methodist Primary School and it was a huge success. The primary pupils all joined in and it was really fun! Due to popular demand, St Peter’s has asked that we go back again this year. We have also been asked to visit St Thomas’ Catholic Primary School.
With support from Miss Croft, we have been planning and delivering our own sessions in French, Spanish and German. We were all nervous initially last year, but the lessons went well and we cannot wait to teach at more primary events this year. Our sessions are engaging with lots of games and fun activities. We teach the basics such as greetings, colours, animals, and the alphabet.
What’s next? Next autumn, Miss Croft will be offering a Language Leadership Award to students who particularly enjoy languages, or would like to gain experience teaching other students. The programme will help students to develop leadership skills, grow in confidence and enhance future careers.
