  • Modern Foreign Languages Coffee Morning

    Published 28/01/20

    Hello!

     

    Welcome to the MFL (Modern Foreign Languages) Coffee Morning!

    The purpose of our Mandarin Curriculum at Monega is to ensure children are prepared citizens of the world and to learn about different cultures, encouraging them to explore and respect other people.  We are committed to developing strong, life-long linguistic skill by opening pupils’ minds to different opportunities.

    In order to do this, here at Monega we prepare our children since nursery.  Students learn about colours, greetings and the Mandarin culture.

    This year, students from Year 3 to Year 6 have also started to write Chinese characters in their brand new      books!  Also, we have just celebrated the Chinese New Year, by inviting Chinese artists to our school who performed showcasing their best skills.

    Besides learning Mandarin, here at Monega we promote inclusion and we want to make sure every child feels proud of their cultural background. For this reason, we promote Language of the Month. Each month, our children learn greetings and basic words in a different language.

    This month the language we are learning is Romanian.    Multumesc!

    Thank you for coming!
