For many years, Northampton High School have enjoyed celebrating the European Day of Languages. With a whole week of activities planned, the event has proven to be an important and much loved week in the school calendar. This year, the Languages faculty and their students were determined that they would still mark this European-wide celebration of language learning, in line with the current restrictions.
Whilst the girls missed the ‘social’ aspect of the many events, tutor groups enjoyed quizzes on the theme of language learning, including Latin and Greek derivations. Year 8 girls considered sexism in language and Year 5 designed posters to mark the occasion. The now famous annual European Day of Languages Bake Off became a ‘virtual’ Bake Off this year, with students baking at home and submitting photos of their tasty creations!
The week of activities concluded on Friday morning with a virtual whole school assembly, where some of the school’s talented linguists, from Junior School to A Level, displayed their skills and passion for languages.
