KING’S Ely Junior pupils went all out to celebrate European Day of Languages.

The campaign takes place on September 26th each year and is organised by the Council of Europe and the European Union. Its aim is to encourage language learning across Europe.

Key Stage 2 MFL Co-ordinator at King’s Ely Junior, Lorraine Oldham, said: “The day began with the register being taken in a different language. As I walked down the corridor, I could hear a plethora of different languages, including Mandarin, Japanese, Maltese, Swedish and Swahili.

“Year 4 talked about how learning languages can open doors for you in life and then created their own “Open Door” posters, discovering how to say “hello” in at least two other languages.

“Meanwhile Year 7 pupils participated in an eTwinning project called “eDay of Languages,” where they worked with 12 other schools to celebrate languages and cultural heritage. On Tuesday they created some wonderful posters to promote the European Day of Languages and they also took part in a Kahoot Quiz to test their knowledge on Europe.”
