SPANISH STUDY DAY AT THE BFI
Spanish A Level students attended a study day on Pedro Almodóvar's films at BFI Southbank. Our students had a superb introduction to the themes and style of the Spanish auteur and took part in discussions microphone in hand. They also enjoyed watching the film Volver on the big screen.
Many of them continued their immersion in the language with a bonding visit to the restaurant Las Iguanas. ¡Todo un éxito !
FRENCH STORYTELLING WORKSHOP
French students Hasna B, Uma B, Amelie B-A, DeeDee B-R, Caitlin C, Isabel D, Olivia D, Jemima R, Bea S and Rani T in Year 9 have spent the last two months learning about childrens’ stories in French. In small groups, they chose a story to act out and practised delivering them in French. The group performed their stories to Year 2 students at St James’ Primary School with the aid of props and musical instruments. Their enthusiasm was infectious and the younger students were thrilled to see the live performance of one of their favourite stories. We asked the students to describe their experience and this is what they said: “The French Storytelling trip was a great experience. We got to practise our reading and speaking skills and widened our French vocabulary. Our favourite part of the experience was interacting with the Year 2 children and seeing how they reacted to our stories, positive or otherwise! We were lucky enough to be given this opportunity and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wanted to take part in the future. Our group performed the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar ( La chenille qui fait des trous ) . We loved using the puppet and props and the children seemed to enjoy them just as much as us! We hope to take part in something similar in the future!”
