Budding linguists at St Mary’s Primary School in Alexandria celebrated their language skills with a French learning day.

Pupils were put into mixed groups of P1-3 and P4-7 and spent the day taking part in various activities including games, STEM tasks and letting their creative sides lose with some art.

The children also welcomed their parents into school for an afternoon to involve them in the fun and to show off their newly-acquired language skills.

And they even topped the day off with a performance or two of their favourite French songs.

Joanne McKenna, deputy head teacher at the school, said: “We are learning French as a second language and we wanted to collaborate what they had been learning.

“We invited parents in to share the learning. The children were really enthusiastic and involved with the language and learning about the culture.

“They really got actively involved in all of the activities.

“We had a great response from the parents.”
