International Links

The children have French lessons every week throughout the school with a specialist Teacher, and also Spanish in Year 6. We are fortunate to have so many different nationalites in the school and we hold international events each year to celebrate these different cultures and languages: this March we held an International Food Tasting Day with foods from Thailand, Japan, Argentina, Italy, Greece, France, the USA, Germany, Scotland and Wales. We also held an International Story Telling Day in June, with parents and children from our school and another primary school leading the story telling in Mandarin, German, Greek, Romanian, Spanish and Russian. 

We have a link school in Brittany, France and children in Year 5 and 6 have penpals who they write to regularly in French. In 2014 we were very lucky to meet our penpals when they came to visit our school!

We also have strong links with the MFL Dept at Tanbridge House School, our local secondary school, and students come to visit us each term. They acted as waiters at our Cafe Role Play in February and visited to give our KS2 children taster lessons in German and Spanish. 

In February children from our school took part in a Gifted and Talented French Workshop with other primary school children where they rehearsed and performed a play in French.
