Before starting a new term of teaching I wanted my Y5 class to reflect on the importance of learning another language. I asked them to write some speech bubbles to inspire the younger classes I work with to learn a new language. I asked them why they thought people should learn another language.
To inspire them I read them some of the children’s comments which can be found at the start of each year group section in the old KS2 Languages framework.
The attached PowerPoint features some their unedited ideas. If your pupils do a similar exercise please share their thoughts and inspirations.
