Language of the Term

As you know, we are all very proud that there are 21 languages including English spoken by children and their families at Gardners Lane Primary School.

The celebration of the diversity of language and culture in the school’s community is very important to us and as part of our whole school practice we celebrate a different language each term. We celebrate this as ‘Language of the Term’.

Using resources from the website below (many thanks to Newbury Park Primary School in London) we encourage our children to learn and speak a few words of each Language of the Term and to learn a little about the country or countries in which that language is spoken. https://www.newburyparkschool.net/lotm/index.html

The timetable of languages we will be celebrating this academic year is shown below:

Term 1: Romanian

Term 2: Bengali

Term 3: Braille

Term 4: Bulgarian

Term 5: Arabic

Term 6: Japanese

In Term 6 we will be linking ‘Language of the Term’ with the Olympics and Paralympics which are scheduled to take place this summer in Japan so from 7th June all of our children will be learning some Japanese words and phrases.

Why not join us in practicing some Japanese with your children at home? You may be surprised how many Japanese words you know already…..including sushi, judo, ninja, origami, karate, karaoke!
