Each year, Salusbury School celebrates International Week to promote the benefits of international collaboration, speaking and learning other languages and cultural exchange.
"The activity helped children learn that Africa is not a country and in fact, a continent and there are many different cultures within Africa. It also helped children to understand a different side of the continent and not just one where people are less fortunate than Europe"Y2 Teacher
This Year we also celebrated the European Day of Languages (26th September) within International Week. The European Day of Languages (EDL) aims to promote the rich linguistic diversity of Europe and raise awareness of the importance of lifelong language learning for everyone.
To celebrate the diversity of languages spoken at Salusbury, pupils played language games and carried out class activities such as a class language audit, playing language quizzes and games, and creating language posters.
In addition to all these activities, students learnt from each other by teaching their peers something in another language, e.g greetings, numbers to 10. It was a day of linguistic diversity celebration that everyone enjoyed.
‘To learn languages is important because makes you happy and proud of yourself’
‘Knowing more languages can help you at school and to make new friends’
