Gong hei fatt choy! Happy Chinese New Year!

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!  

University of Leeds Academic Outreach

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.

Welcome to our Modern Languages blog. Here we will be celebrating the use of language to communicate. If you would like to see work from previous years then go to Home on the menu.
