Aberdeenshire update

Author: Sylvia Georgin, Aberdeenshire

Sixty teachers from Aberdeenshire were successful in their Erasmus+ applications and shall be attending LFEE Immersion Courses in Lyon, Salinac and Malaga next session. We are very proud of the hard work and commitment that they have shown in their applications, as well as their efforts to improve their language skills and develop language teaching and learning in our schools. The impact of their experiences and their enthusiasm will help build momentum to our 1+2 journey.

Meldrum Academy held a fantastic P6 transition day which saw over 200 pupils from the surrounding primary schools attend. The day emphasised the importance of language learning and pupils were given the chance to participate in fun and engaging activities including masterclasses in over six different languages, language learning using digital technology, Chinese calligraphy lessons and learning about France and French culture from two of our French assistants, Mathilde and Marion.

Lumphanan School took the traditional tale of Jacques et le Haricot Magique, adapted it and presented it in French. The children also baked French goods and served them along with hot chocolate from their very own patisserie.
