It’s a new year and with it comes plenty of new opportunities for language learning. Year 2 children will get to discover a different language this term – Japanese! We will explore elements of this fascinating language during our in-class sessions and fun craft activities in MOOT (Manage Our Own Time).

The Lovely Languages and Cool Cultures after-school club will also start this Friday (8th January). This year the club will be running throughout the Spring and Summer terms for both Year 1 and Year 2 pupils. The idea behind the club is to introduce the children to a number of different languages and cultures from around the world. We will do this through lots of fun activities including games, crafts, art and music.

When we do craft activities the children will be able to take their creations home with them; and by the end of term they should all have a passport and phrasebook brimming with images and words from the places that we have ‘visited’ on our classroom travels.

Looking forward to meeting you all and introducing you to some of the 6,500 languages that are spoken around the globe!
