Would you like to know more about a multilingual approach to language learning and how art can act as a vehicle to explore this? Well, we have exciting news to share with you on this subject.

During the last few months, SCILT, in collaboration with Bilingualism Matters and the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow, have been working with teachers in mainstream primary schools and Polish complementary schools to investigate a multilingual approach to language learning through the medium of art. This has included exploring a variety of activities to support this such as language portraits, zines and Chagallian idioms. Teachers from the participating schools have been implementing this innovative approach with their learners using various art activities that exemplify the effectiveness of multilingual pedagogies within a primary setting.

We are delighted to announce that the pupils’ work will feature and be celebrated in an online exhibition which will launch during our Multilingual approaches through Art event on 8 June. During the event, you will have the opportunity to hear from pupils, teachers and partners who have participated in this project, in addition to viewing the pupils’ creativity and their artwork.

We very much hope you can join us to celebrate this exciting and innovative approach to language learning. Attendance at the event is free of charge and will be hosted on the MS Teams platform.
