European Reading Tool Box
The MFL department and the librarians joined forces this week to promote reading - in a foreign language!
We were fortunate to have on loan the EuroToolBox, a collection of books in seven European languages: French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian, Polish and English. There are between 10-15 books in each language.
Mrs Susan Lattimer, French Teacher at Claires Court said:
“The collection was created by Eurolis; a collection of librarians from various European cultural institutions with the aim of promoting European languages in the UK.
The themes of this year's collection is 'Journeys'. Years 5, 6, 7 and 9 were involved and thoroughly enjoyed being read to, reading on their own, creating the bunting for display and completing a European reading "passport", in which they filled in words they could recognise from the literature as well as some new words.”
