European Day of Languages 2012
Three of our partner primary schools, Crowle, Eastoft & St Norberts Catholic Primary Schools came to The Axholme Academy for the afternoon.
First, the primary pupils performed songs in French -Crowle -Frere Jacques sung in the round, St Norbert's recited Le hareng saur, Eastoft sang baa baa black sheep in French.
Then the pupils were involved in four activities -boules, making a foreign language bookmark, matching flags etc to countries, French bingo. Billed as The Biggest language lesson ever held in Crowle, all pupils will receive a certificate for taking part. The activities were run by Year 10 and 11 language students , who did a very good job and were extremely well organised.
The primary students enjoyed the afternoon.
Principal, Joe Sellars, said 'It was great to see our partner primary school pupils engaging with foreign languages in such a fun and practical way. Activities like these are part of our busy programme of events and activities that make transition for these young people to the academy really smooth so that they really hit the ground running in their learning'.
