  • Focus: This year saw a pilot transition project for pupils moving from Year 6 into Year 7. The idea being that this would increase contact between secondary schools and their feeder schools as well as to continue to develop an understanding of good languages pedagogy in both Primary and Secondary schools. The key areas of work for the project included the development of storytelling skills, linking languages with inter-cultural understanding and providing opportunities to move from topic-based to skills-based learning.
