Well done to everyone who took part in the Routes into Languages Challenge. It was great to give you all your certificates and prizes. I see at least one Mentor included her Languages Challenge Mentor certificate in her Head Girl application – well done and good luck.
Thanks to Sarah Schechter and Tony Morgan from Routes East for making it through the traffic to celebrate all your languages activity, and thanks to Red Herring/Red Snapper (Learning Curve) for the prizes.
Julia sang us a beautiful song in French and English, Sam eventually made it back from the chip shop to do the sound, and all in all it was a lovely occasion to end the school year! I know Sarah took some photos, so watch this space.
I now have portfolios for everyone on the list. I will be arranging a (rather large) meeting next week. We need to match you up with your mentors. We need to make sure you are all getting started. And we need to make sure you are keeping enough evidence to show the panel at the end.
Ideas that I’ve heard going on so far: grammar guides, treasure hunts in the library, bluetoothing French sound files to mobile phones, recipes, ds games in French, websites, songs, films…
