Lovely languages and cool cultures

I now have the pleasure of running an after school club dedicated to language and culture! This will run over the summer term for Year 2 and Year 1 pupils. The idea is to introduce the children to different languages from around the world by looking at cultural elements such as art, music and festivals.

The club will run for 5 weeks for each year group and we will look at a different language each week. This week will be Japanese, so we can further build on the language learning we have been doing in class. Our activities will include: writing our names in katakana (one component of the Japanese writing system), making koinobori (carp streamers) for Children’s Day and playing language games.
