Pupils get a taste for languages – at breakfast


PUPILS at Warrington’s Sir Thomas Boteler CE High School started European Languages Day early – with breakfast.
Year 7 youngsters started the day – which celebrates languages all over Europe – with a French breakfast.
They enjoyed a pain au chocolat and jus d’orange – and at least one pupil remarked that it was better than English breakfast.
Another asked if they could have a French breakfast every day!
Other forms watched a presentation about the importance of learning other languages, with quotes from some famous people such as Nelson Mandela, who said: “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.
“If you talk to him in his language,that goes to his heart.”
At lunchtime students could win prizes for having short French or Spanish conversations with language teachers.
There were also lots of ways of saying “hello” in different languages on posters around the school. The challenge was to learn six different ways of saying “hello” in return for a prize at the end of the day and this proved extremely popular with lots of student involvement.
A spokesperson for the school said: “The day was a big success. We are always impressed by the readiness of students to learn and take part in lessons, but it was great to see pupils taking time out of their lunchtime to speak French and Spanish too.”
