Northbourne Park School Celebrates European Day of Languages.

Northbourne Park School Celebrates European Day of Languages.

Tuesday 26th September was European Day of Languages, and the children and staff at Northbourne Park School celebrated in style.

The Day was marked by a special assembly and followed by a range of exciting activities in which all the children from Year 3 to Year 8 took part.

The children enjoyed a cheese tasting competition, they learnt to play African games, discovered the origin of English words and even had a go at singing a song in Danish.  At lunchtime, they enjoyed meat and vegetarian dishes from across Europe.

After the cheese tasting, which included a worldwide selection, a Year 7 pupil said: “I loved the cheese, especially the Camembert!”

Northbourne Park’s Head of Modern Languages, Marie Hutchinson said, “At Northbourne Park, we show our pupils how important languages are and what fun it can be learning them.  An appreciation of other languages is a vital part of any child’s education.  Everyone had a great time today and displayed wonderful enthusiasm for other languages and cultures.”
