WPT Secondary Schools Celebrate European Languages Week

WPT Secondary Schools Celebrate European Languages Week

In the last week in the MFL Departments across Wickersley Partnership Trust, we have been celebrating European Languages Week.

There has been a number of activities going on around our schools, which have celebrated cultural diversity and enrichment.

Each day, teachers around our schools have organised activities where students can develop their language skills and broaden their cultural horizons. Our WPT students have enjoyed French, Spanish, German and Italian food tasting, beginner German and Italian lessons, MFL karaoke, Mexican Day of the Dead crafts and an MFL inspired bake off… just to name a few events.

In form tutor time, students even completed an escape room in which they learnt about the importance of languages as well as learn some key language skills. This gave students an opportunity to gain a pledge by learning a greeting in five different languages throughout the week.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all students who took part!

Here are just a few photos from the events that have taken place.

Wickersley Student, Leah Fearon's Debut Play 'My BFF is a Vampire'!

Wickersley Student, Leah Fearon's Debut Play 'My BFF is a Vampire'!

Wickersley School’s Year 7 Performing Arts student, Leah Fearon, has completed the first draft of her debut play ‘My BFF is a Vampire’. 

Whilst the Drama Department found itself in the unusual, restrictive habitat of the classroom, the students got the chance to explore areas of the subject not done so in-depth, including scriptwriting.

Leah showed exceptional skill and imagination in one of the first lessons, and shared how she had written lots of scripts at home.

Impressed by this, Mr Wilding encouraged Leah to continue writing ‘My BFF is a Vampire’.

The script has now been professionally formatted and tells the story of best friends, Stacey and Kayla, who find moving to ‘big school’ is the least of their worries!

Well done on this wonderful achievement, Leah!
