We welcomed ninety primary school pupils to our Festival of Languages this week. They participated in workshops on sign language, secret languages, French, German, Spanish and Mandarin; and Abingdon sixth form and third year students led several sessions in which they were able to develop their own communication and leadership skills. We were all impressed by the primary children’s enthusiasm and confidence as they tried out the new words and phrases that they had learned; and the leadership skills displayed by our own students during the course of the day. The teaching and learning team are really enjoying getting to meet local primary MFL leads and to exchange ideas about language teaching strategies – our Festival proved to be another good opportunity for a catch up.
