Churston Ferrers Grammar School is proud of its strong links with primary schools in the bay: French and Spanish workshops are offered at Churston on a fortnightly basis for children aged eight to ten; sixth formers play a big part in this connection too!
The pictures were taken at Shiphay Academy where year 12 students taught French, Spanish, German and Italian to years four, five and six during their French week!
All of the students were a credit to Churston, they delivered well -paced, fun and interactive lessons , there is no doubt that the future of our country is in excellentes mains! The sixth formers deployed an array of games and engaging activities to enthuse young children and help them develop further their interest in language learning.
The lessons were “wunderbar” and needless to say that it was heartbreaking for the children to say “adios amigos!”
Sarah year 5 said “I loved the lessons, I want to learn all the languages that exist in the world, I had so much fun!”
y 12 student reflecting on the day: “The children were really enthusiastic and excited to be learning a foreign language and were very willing to contribute. Also the students showed good knowledge retention and were able to answer questions throughout the session. Also everyone in our group contributed to the presentation and when they weren’t presenting, did a good job of mixing with the children”.
