Language Celebrations for Local Primary Schools

On Friday the 18th May 2012, a language celebration took place at Harrogate Grammar School for some of the local primary school children in the area.

Six groups of year five pupils from Rossett Acre, Forest, Pannal, Western, St Peter’s and Oatlands came to the Grammar school to take part in a fun filled morning of activites. On offer was Spanish, Italian and German for beginners, Handball, Tongue Twisters and Rowing. The carousel of activites was preceded by singing in various languages which was led by Miss Segal.

Despite the inclement weather, the children were able to enjoy the outdoor activities which were on offer. They showed a lot of enthusiasm while playing handball and during the other activities.

The first three sessions came to an end with a short break of biscuits, drinks and an activity of making flags and banners for different countries. This was to fit in with the Olympic theme of the day.

The activities came to an exciting end with the headteacher Mr Sherriff, presenting medals to all students. The enjoyment that they felt was clear on their faces as they happily watched the award ceremony.

The junior sports leaders were also on hand to help out throughout the morning.

There were also many pictures taken during the morning which show some of the exciting things the primary school students were able to take part in.
