North East Festival of Languages

Y5VL thoroughly enjoyed the North East Festival of Languages, especially having a Spanish taster. We learnt a range of words, for example Soy fuerte (I am strong), along with appropriate actions. The session was very informative and enjoyable and we were able to complete a range of games/ activity to embed this new knowledge. We even ended up designing and labelling superheroes with their qualities.

Christopher told the class how to say hello in Russian and Kyle now regularly uses Spanish greetings in the classroom.

In Y3/4LJ, the children learnt lots during the North East Festival of Languages.  They were lucky to get a taster of many different languages when some of the children in the class demonstrated what they know.  Layla taught the class how to say hello and goodbye in Spanish.  Steven-Eric taught the children some Turkish.  Mayukh told us in Nepal, people would greet each other by saying, ‘Namaste’ while putting their hands together to show respect.  Abdul impressed us with his Arabic skills.  The children learnt how to say hello, goodbye, mum and dad.  Seweryn helped the children to learn hello and goodbye in Polish.  Darcie taught us how to say hello in Japanese.

The children all enjoyed performing their favourite Go Noodle dance in Spanish.

They also enjoyed looking at some stories written in French.  They practised reading them and thought about what they might mean using the pictures to help them. We looked at some numbers in Spanish and Darcie said, “I’ve just noticed they are very similar to French!”
