European Day of Languages

At Swansfield Park Primary School we celebrate European Day of Languages. This is celebrated across Europe on the 26th September each year.  It aims to promote the rich linguistic diversity of Europe and raise awareness of the importance of lifelong language learning for everyone. It was set up by the Council of Europe and was first celebrated in 2001. 
Pear Class celebrated European Day of Languages by learning about Northumberland and Yorkshire dialect.  They had a fantastic time practising greeting each other in both dialect, with some budding Yorkshire accents. The children then moved on to look at a map of Great Britain and the distance between these two area. To finish of their celebration the children produced their own Yorkshire puddings.
In LKS2 Willow class took this opportunity to involve outdoor learning and recreated the Eiffel tower whist practising their French greetings.
