At Chartham, we aim to promote the enjoyment of learning a language and we enjoy celebrating cultural differences and similarities. We also aim to prepare children for further language learning when they go to secondary school and beyond! Our chosen language is French which we learn from year 1 onwards.
We enjoy celebrating Language days as a whole school especially on 26th September every year - The European Day of Languages. We often dress up on the day or design something to represent our chosen country as well as celebrating with various activities in class. We encourage our EAL students to share their knowledge of their country and to teach us some words from that Language! We also hold other events throughout the year.
