Welcome to our Modern Languages blog. Here we will be celebrating the use of language to communicate.
This afternoon Year 6 attended a Cine Lumiere screening of 4 episodes of the famous Swiss comic series Titeuf followed by a bi-lingual workshop learning how to create comics in the style of Titeuf.
We found the episodes really funny and loved having a go at creating our own characters in this style!
Do you want to get better at French at home? Do you like someone silly who does funny voices? Do you like learning about French cultural events? Have you ever wanted to play Bingo or spot the missing item?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES then you should join Mr Innes for his French lessons on Youtube.
2021 is the Year of the Ox and to celebrate at Allerton C of E, children took part in a range of activities, both in school and at home.
In Nursery and Reception, they had a great time tasting Chinese food, listening to stories read in Chinese by Mrs Fan, playing with Chinese toys, dressing up and making lanterns!
In Key Stage 1, they had fun eating rice with chopsticks and making lanterns and dragons!
In Key Stage 2, they had fun making lanterns, dragon masks, 3D Ox’s and much more!
Thank you to everyone who took part in the celebration!
5W are currently at home, working hard at their remote learning.
Look at their fantastic French work that they have been producing while out of school! At ACE we love learning other languages and about other cultures – it opens our minds to ‘the places to go and the people to meet’ to quote Dr Seuss!
Here’s a few examples of their super work! Well done Aleena, Leesha, Jemima, Roxy and Bobby!
As part of our European Language Day we asked parents and children to send in videos of them reading a story in another language. Here’s a few of the lovely stories we received:
On Friday we celebrated European Day of Languages in KS2. Children participated in language, cultural and art activities in their classes.
In Year 4 children took on some of the Secret Agents’ Handbook challenges as well as some Language Angels activities in Spanish class.
In Year 6 we spent the afternoon studying the style of some French artists and movements: the impressionists, Claude Monet and Henri Matisse.
We will be celebrating European Day of Languages tomorrow in KS2.
We would love you to get involved this weekend at home too!

We are hoping to welcome some Language students from the University of Leeds into our KS2 French and Spanish classes next academic year.
What this will look like is not entirely sure yet, but may involve some online support in small groups or workshops online and then hopefully working towards students being in school to support in lessons.
