European Day of Languages – updated

Students across the school experienced a wealth of learning of and about languages on Friday 24th September in celebration of the annual European day of languages.

Many thanks to all the staff who participated in the event bringing Latin, Greek, Italian, French, Japanese, German and Welsh into lessons across the curriculum for the day!!

Students in year 7 have been competing in an inter-tutor group competition to recognize music from around the world and have been offered the chance to enter an individual competition about language to pit their wits against the rest of the year group.

For the first time this year, The Corsham School has entered the European languages Olympics and many students are enthusiastically learning vocabulary in a bid to beat other local and European schools (not to mention classmates).  Results are pending at the time of writing.

Here are some of the comments from students:
