Modern Foreign Languages
On Wednesday 5th December we welcomed a group of Language Leaders from Nunnery Wood High School to Whittington to teach a french lesson to each of our Key Stage 2 classes. They taught them some food vocabulary so that they could buy items from the supermarket.
Our children enjoyed playing 'LOTO' and 'Splat' and enjoyed sharing their own language skills with our visitors.
On Monday 2nd July 2018 our French Club enjoyed sampling some french delicacies at our Cafe de Whittington. We welcomed their parents with a song and role play demonstration, then had fun serving their families when they ordered (in French) off the menus!
On Wednesday 4th July, Year 5 went up to Nunnery Wood High School to watch a performance of 'Le Chateau' (The Castle) with Year 7 and 8 pupils. We spotted some familiar faces (former Whittington pupils) in the audience who made us feel very welcome!
It was an entertaining, enjoyable and interactive performance that the children thoroughly enjoyed - they especially liked it's historical context and the slapstick comedy that brought the story to life!
Caitlin even got to go onto the stage to represent our school and be a part of the action! Bravo!
RGS Language and Culture Morning
A group of our Year 5 pupils were invited to the Royal Grammar School Worcester to take part in a Language and Culture morning on Wednesday 27th June 2018.
During their French lesson, they were learning how to talk about the rooms in 'Ma Maison' (My house). They then went on to design their dream houses,using bilingual dictionaries to add in all their designer extras e.g un jacuzzi, un salle au cinema!
The children really enjoyed their time at RGS, especially at break-time when they got to sample some European delights! A huge thank you to Mrs Kilburn for making them feel so welcome and confident to have a go at using the new vocabulary!
