The European Day of Languages helps to celebrate and promote language learning and linguistic diversity within our school. Throughout the day, each class took part in a variety of activities, ranging from learning new greetings, identifying flags and even singing songs. For more photos of this special day please visit class pages.
Every year, the 26th of September marks the European Day of Languages. Mastering a language opens doors to lucrative jobs, new cultural horizons, and a whole new way of looking at language itself.
This year, Lancelot pupils have started learning French, and this week we carried out a language mission, tasted some food and even learnt all about The EDL in our comprehension lesson!
Learning a language can be difficult, and it takes a lot of confidence to succeed. In our language classes, our children are taught to believe in their ability to learn, allowing them to keep progressing without getting demotivated by difficult concepts and words.
By marking the day at Countess Gytha , we hope to broaden the horizons of our pupils. Learning a language really helps children to develop as Global Citizens which is a hugely important part of our curriculum.
