Students in the Modern Foreign Languages Department have been busy producing leaflets and posters in French and Spanish, advertising various towns and cities in Yorkshire, ready for the influx of tourists that Le Grand Départ and the Tour de France will bring to the region in the summer. Our work is now on display at Dewsbury Library’s new Tourist Information section. Why not go down and have a look this weekend?
Just a reminder that I Am Learning revision challenges are running between now and the end of next half term. All you need to enter is go to I am learning and look at your homework.

Students in years 7, 8 and 9 have the opportunity to take part in this exciting competition, in which they will complete six, football-based language tasks in Portuguese, competing in teams of between 4 and 10 players, with the opportunity of winning a place at the Double Club World Cup Challenge to be held at the Emirates Stadium in London, home of Arsenal Football Club.
This competition is being run as an after-school club by Ms Faulkes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from today until 4.30pm (4pm on 18.3.14 and 20.3.14). Students who would like to compete will need to get into a team with their friends and make arrangements to get home from school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Alternatively, come along and we’ll make sure you are part of a team.
Come and get involved!
Four year 7 students went to the Regional Final of the National Foreign Languages Spelling Bee at the University of Hull yesterday, where they competed in the French section of the competition against students from over 50 other Yorkshire schools. Our finalists all performed extremely well, beating their scores from both the class and whole-school competitions. Although our students did not progress through to the National Final, we are all very proud of their achievements.
There will be more languages competitions coming soon.
