Language

Language of the term

 

In our school, we celebrate being unique and diversity. Each Half Term, we celebrate and learn about a different language because…

  • It gives us an opportunity to demonstrate language skills
  • We develop respect for each other’s languages and cultures
  • We broaden our language and communication skills
  • We learn about languages and cultures
  • We broaden our understanding of the world around us
  • We learn and have fun!

Here are some ideas of how you can learn and celebrate languages:

  • Use Newbury Park site to learn key phrases in the language - https://www.newburyparkschool.net/lotm/index.html
  • Use SafeTube for counting stories and traditional stories
  • Cook or bake food from the country associated with the language
  • Find the countries where the language is spoken on the map
  • Create flags and posters celebrating the language
  • Learn songs in a new language
  • Look at what celebrations take place in the country of language of the month

This half term, our language is FRENCH! This was voted for by children across the school.

Here are some activities to have a go at – look out for them on ClassDojo too!
