Language Leaders at Balgowan

With over 30 languages spoken in our school, we are giving our Year 6 bilingual pupils an opportunity to teach their other language to children in Year 2.

Every half term, we choose three Language Leaders who are responsible for planning lessons, making resources and teaching short 20-minute sessions to a group of four pupils in Year 2. Our Year 6s are natural born teachers, very enthusiastic and they prepared some great activities for their groups.

These are the languages that were taught this term:


–          Italian – Antonella (6AS)

–          Chinese – Holly E. (6NG)

–          German – Maia (6CR)

‘Bravo’ to our first Language Leaders of the year!
