Language Celebration Days
Our Language Celebration Days for schools are a fantastic way of bringing languages to life not only for the children but also for the staff. We offer French Language and Spanish Language Days, or a combination of many different languages.
At a recent Language Celebration Day at St Peter's School in South Buckinghamshire the day coincided with Euro 2016, and the children were grouped into football teams that reflected the languages spoken at the school. The children came to school on the day dressed in the colours of their team, and some really went to town with coordinating face paint too! The staff also got on board with a fantastic array of outfits, much to the children's amusement.
The children followed a carousel-type timetable which gave them an insight into not only a variety of languages, but also a taste of some new cultures. these experiences ranged from an introduction to British Sign Language to French cookery, and even included singing in Slovak!
These fabulous Language Celebration Days really do give the children and staff something to remember forever, and can inspire youngsters to look outside the world that they know and become true explorers!
Let us take the organisation, staffing and planning off your shoulders and book your free consultation NOW!
“This was a widely praised, highly engaging event which included four languages (Spanish, French, German and Russian!). The pupils loved the carousel activities on the languages day and enjoyed finding out about the culture and traditions of our European partners. The children used their conversational language in songs, cooking activities, art, ag making, drama and numeracy to show how language can open gateways to learning. We have just booked again for next year!”

"We had such a lovely Spanish day at Rathmell Primary School on 16th March. Everyone learnt a lot and really enjoyed themselves! We made Sangria, ate tapas, had a traditional Spanish breakfast, learnt lots of new Spanish words, sang and danced to some of our Bilinguasing songs, did some Gaudí art work, danced to some traditional flamenco music and ended the day with a Bilingual story!"
