Year 5 Summer 1
Languages Discovery Day at Hatfield's Girls School
Journey across the world
On Tuesday 6th June, our Modern Foreign Language Faculty held the sixth Languages Discovery Day, which was delivered by 67 Year 10 Young MFL Leaders who shared their cultures, languages and linguistic interests with 120 Year 5 Boys and Girls from Oak View and St Philip Howard RC Primary Schools. The Key Stage 2 pupils had the opportunity to experience twenty-three different languages from all around the world including special workshops in British Sign Language, Semaphore, Greek dancing, Yoruba, Persian and Maori and many more from all round the world, reflecting and sharing our diverse heritages at the school. The day was divided in 162 workshops with 31 different language and cultural foci. By all accounts the day was a great success. Special praise is due to the Young Leaders for their infectious enthusiasm which gave the event such a buzz and celebrated the rich cultural and linguistic diversity of our school!
