Welcome to our languages area!

 

Forest Fields Primary School is proud to serve one of the most multicultural communities in Nottingham, and strives to offer a range of opportunities for learning languages and celebrating the cultures of our school population.

  • We are now running FREE ESOL (English) COURSES for adults on Monday afternoons (1-3PM), with a free creche available. For more details, see Meena at the office.

 

 

When Key Stage 2 pupils were asked which foreign language they would like to learn, they voted for Spanish. We therefore employ a specialist teacher to deliver a programme of language and cultural development from Year 3 to Year 6, on a weekly basis.

 

In addition, we are working in partnership with a primary school in Spain, CEIP Eduardo Pondal. It is located in Ponteceso, Galicia (North Spain). You can visit their website here:

A number of Year 5/6 children have been paired up with penpals from the school, and they regularly exchange letters and cards. They can also speak with them directly via Skype most weeks.

Here are some of the carnival cards we have just received together with monster pictures that our pen pals had drawn according to our descriptions.

Our Language Coordinator is also a former French Teacher, and is now offering a lunchtime French Club to Year 5 and 6 pupils.

We are taking part in a Modern Foreign Language project run by the Nottingham Trent University, which offers a group of Key Stage 2 pupils the chance to learn German over a 6-week course.

There is also news that Latin will soon be introduced with the help of Nottingham Trent University…. Watch this space!
