Languages Day: Inspiring our local primary school children
Bonjour! Hola! Salve!
Earlier this month, Kingham Hill School hosted a fun and interactive languages day for a group of 52 primary school children.
The day started out with a warm welcome in our beautiful Chapel by Mr Gareth Williams, Head of Languages. Pupils from Bloxham Church of England Primary School, Stow on the Wold Primary School and Wychwood Church of England Primary School were then able to experience taster classes in French, Spanish and Latin.
Engaging and inspiring, the children learned to talk about different modes of transport in French, learned to sing “Old MacDonald had a farm” in Spanish and discovered that Harry Potter spells have Latin roots!
The day was kicked off by a lovely themed lunch where there was a choice of Toulouse sausages or paella, both of which were very tasty!
The day was brought to a close when Mr Williams gathered everyone back in the Chapel to say thank you before the children excitedly departed, biscuit in hand!
Au revoir! Adiós! Vale!Published: November 20 2017
