Mrs Jimenez, Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages, and Mrs Rigg, School Librarian, took a group of pupils from year 9 to Queen's Drive Primary School and to St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School to deliver taster lessons in languages using the Eurotoolbox books which are currently available in the library.
They delivered two sessions, one to year 3 at Queen’s Drive and one to year 6 at St Andrew’s. The primary school pupils had a chance to look at books in multiple languages: French, Portuguese, Polish, Italian, Spanish and German. The pupils had to look at the titles and decide what language was the book written in, complete a translation of some titles, discuss French and Spanish speaking countries and then listen to a short story in French or Spanish.
Mrs Jimenez and Mrs Rigg were very impressed with the primary school pupils’ work. Thank you to the group of year 9 pupils for assisting and thank you to both schools for hosting us.
