We were delighted to welcome St Edmund’s Primary School, Sunningwell Primary School, Rush Common Primary School and Charlton Primary School for our annual Love Languages competition, an opportunity for Year 5 students to showcase their language-speaking skills. With a theme of ‘colours’ and performances in French, Spanish and Mandarin, it was a linguistic and musical treat, with every performer showing amazing confidence in their chosen language.
Languages have the power to break down barriers, and our three judges – Old Girl Charlotte Ryland, Becky Burns and Kathy Laszlo – were extremely impressed with the level of commitment shown. They encouraged everyone to keep going with their language learning.
St Helen’s Year 5 students were also part of the competition and loved every moment:
‘It was really fun and everyone was really good.’
‘I had lots of fun and I learnt loads.’
‘There was a big variety of languages.’
‘I really liked the other schools’ performances and they were really interesting.’
