What do languages mean to me?

speakinhgAs Language Leaders we thought about what languages mean to us. Here are our ideas:

'Languages mean I can communicate with people and I can understand what they are saying in different languages.'

'Languages mean being an individual and when someone speaks in a different language, I find it interesting.'

'Spanish means to me learning something different to English. It is really fun and good if you travel. I love the way we learn through games. It is very enjoyable!'

'I think languages are important to me because when you go to a different country you can understand what they say.'

'I like Spanish lessons because I love playing the games and I like learning new things, and it is good for later life if you go to Spain.'

'Languages mean to me that I can learn different langauegs instead of learning just one. I also would be able to talk to people in different countries.'

'What do languages mean to us? They mean whatever language you speak, you can still communicate with everyone in the world. You can express your feelings by having someone to talk to and that means you won't be alone.'

Language Awards - Summer 2018

4365 Sp Reward Pencils Bump opt

The Whitehouse Common Language Leaders have been keeping their eyes peeled for examples of good language learning all term. As a group they decided that they were looking for perseverance, a growth mindset, enthusiasm, resilience, participation and teamwork. Last week they awarded certificates, stickers and prizes to the children that they had spotted displaying these attributes.

Congratulations to Tevish, Poppy, Jessica, Thomas, Ananya, Callum, Thomas, Hollie, Olivia, Lucas, Sam and Aliya who were chosen. We hope that the Y6s will carry these skills forward into their new schools as they learn new languages, and that they will continue to be cheerful, enthusiastic, risk taking language learners.

Dazzling DT Day at Bishop Vesey

Yesterday, a group of pupils from our Year 5 and 6 cohort were given the opportunity to attend a pioneer DT day at Bishop Vesey Grammar School. The day was set up to forge links between a DT secondary provision and our primary approach to the design-make-evaluate process. The children were guided through the design procedure by Mr. Brown, the head of Design Technology at BVGS. From here the pupils used new technologies and techniques including; CAD design, laser cutting, using acrylic plastic, lining-up of layers and tapping of the holes. The building process was fantastic, with the end project being professional and well-constructed. The children experienced a secondary setting and were fantastically behaved and a credit to the school. Mr. Brown allowed the school to experience hands-on DT using specialist equipment. A wonderful opportunity!
