Let it go!

Friday 26th September was the European Day of Languages and it was a great opportunity to kickstart modern foreign language learning with Year 2 at a local infant school. We had delivered a couple of sessions with different Year 1 classes before the summer but we are now looking forward to a term of German followed by one of Spanish.

So on Friday afternoon, I took a special assembly for Year 2 where we talked about the number of different languages spoken by children at the school (around 25) and the number of different ones spoken around the world (over 6,500!) The children were very keen to tell me about the languages they spoke or knew of and we learnt to say hello in a few different ones (after they took a guess at what some of the more exotic scripts might be!)

Hello

The highlight for the children though was watching the version of ‘Let it go’ from the film ‘Frozen’ sung in 25 different languages and we finished by learning how to sing the first part of the chorus in German: Ich lass los!
