We played games of Festive Bingo with our friends in Vandeins Primary, France on Friday. The bingo cards were pre-arranged and we called out the items in English, and Vandeins called them out in French. Pupils would then check that any winners were correctly called.
You can see the confidence and understanding of language in longer exchanges, which is great to watch.
Primary 4-7 had a joint language activity with our friends in Vandeins, France, as part of our weekly connection.
Pupils in both schools drew a picture of a monster, which had a variety of colours and body parts. These monsters were shared with both schools, each pupil having their own monster and one from the other school.
The focus was listening, as a pupil in one school would describe in their own language their monster, and pupils in the other school would listen and see if they had the monster picture being described.
The activity went very well, as pupils had to ‘tune in’ to the language being spoken by the native speakers, and it was great fun for both schools.
