ewlMuch fun was had this week at The Friary School as pupils and staff celebrated European week of languages from 26-30 September.
Pupils were offered cross-curricular opportunities to immerse themselves in the culture and foreign language of many different European countries.
We were delighted to see so many pupils taking up the challenge and getting involved in numerous activities: flag face painting, completing quizzes, as well as painting numerous flags proved very popular. A further challenge this week was to ‘teach the teacher’ a foreign phrase in any European language; it was exciting to see and hear the buzz of a variety of different languages being spoken around school; Also, literally hundreds of pupils were encouraged to order their lunch in the canteen in French or Spanish and were excited to have a go!
We celebrated the many languages that already exist at the Friary as Polish, Latvian, French, Danish, Spanish, German, Italian and Hungarian pupils took centre stage during assemblies.
Amidst all the fun, pupils celebrated the rich and diverse culture of our European neighbours and learnt that these countries are indeed that, our European neighbours.
Well done Friary pupils; we are very proud of your efforts and enthusiasm this week!
