Year 10 Modern Foreign Language Leaders enhance local primary schools’ pupils experience and their leadership skills with foreign language activity workshops
On Tuesday 14th March sixty-three of our Year 10 MFL Leaders in six teams visited Oak View School, Hatfield Community Free School and St Philip Howard Schools, giving French, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese activity workshops to KS2 pupils.
The Young Leaders collaborated as teams, planned, delivered and evaluated their language and culture based workshops for the Key Stage 2 pupils, with an eye to developing and demonstrating leadership skills through foreign language related tasks. An evaluation will be completed as preparation for the Languages Discovery Day which concludes the 2022-23 programme. There will be certificates and awards for Team Leadership and Initiative, which will be presented in July 2023.
One of the primary schools gave the following feedback: “I’m so pleased the afternoon was enjoyable and a success for all involved. Once again, it sounds as though your students did you, and themselves, proud. Thank you for continuing to provide these afternoons and enriching our pupils’ learning.”
Our students were, as ever, enthusiastic and brilliantly delivered their lessons to the younger pupils – they were also able to find out what life is like on the ‘other side’ of the whiteboard! They now look forward to the Languages Discovery Day hosted at BHGS on Tuesday 6th June in which the Year 10 pupils will play a leading role delivering a wide range of foreign languages and cultural experiences..
A big thank you to all involved, here at Bishop’s and at the Primary Schools for making this opportunity possible.
