Welcome to our Modern Languages blog. Here we will be celebrating the use of language to communicate.
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!
Here is the official page with lots of information and ideas for things to do at home:

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.
