European Day of Languages

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements, Personal, Wider Curriculum

This year, we celebrated European Day of Languages by having a lunchtime photo booth.  Pupils brought along European themed props which resulted in lots of fun and some entertaining photos.

The winning pupil team was made up of S1 pupils Drew Pimm (1L1), Liza Smith (1T1), Daniella Allori (1K), Christy MacPherson (1T1), Meg Leaver (1T1) and Ellie Wilkinson (1T1).  We particularly liked how their photo showed a variety of different languages.  Congratulations, girls!

The RMPS Department won the staff competition – well done to Mrs MacKenzie and Mr Stewart!

European Day of Languages

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Curriculum

This week, pupils in French and Gaelic classes have been celebrating European Day of Languages, to promote language learning and have some multilingual fun!

Classes watched some entertaining film clips then teams of pupils took part in a Quiz, which had rounds on European landmarks, famous Europeans, European food, languages and general knowledge.

In their feedback some of the comments made by pupils included:

“The quiz opened my eyes to different cultures and places around Europe.  It was very interesting and fun!”

“I now have a better understanding of why having a second language is valuable.”

“I learned more things about different languages.”

“I enjoyed working as a team.”

“I enjoyed learning about the different languages and cultures of Europe.”
