Languages Week at NHP
In celebration of the European Day of Languages, the MFL department were busy providing a jam- packed week full of language learning! Each day, the children began their mornings by saying “hello” to their teachers in a different language, followed by a discussion of that country’s culture and the similarities they have to ours.
Our wonderful kitchen team have been providing an array of European foods for the children to try throughout the week. Our Lower School children enjoyed a ‘secret reader’, where a ‘secret’ parent would come in to read to them all. The Middle and Upper School children enjoyed code breaking and translation activities and school assemblies.
We love to celebrate this diverse linguistic heritage each year by creating a day surrounded by assemblies for the entire school, which helps to ignite our students’ passions for languages at an early age. The children have had a week where they have embraced the culture, food and heritage of their classmates and teachers in a fun-filled, educational environment. We can’t wait to do it next year!
