Bolton School Junior Girls
All girls at Hesketh House learn Spanish and in Years 5 and 6 they also learn French.
With an emphasis on an interactive and fun approach, we explore the four key areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing though actions, songs, stories, games, poems, drama, grammar focus, dictionary work, video clips, podcasts and many more creative ways to extend, embed and combine language skills.
Cultural awareness also weaves through our lessons and annually we hold a whole school Languages Day. This immerses the girls in a particular language and culture though workshops and activities beyond the normal curriculum. In recent years, the girls have enjoyed Japanese Day, Italian Day, India Day, Russian Day and French Day.
