We are delighted to have our Young Interpreters on board for this year.


We re-launched the scheme in March and have been discussing what the children think the YIs could do to support new children in school (make friends with them, help them make friends, link them up with children who speak the same language – wear tabards on the playground will highlight who the YIs are).


The children were also set a challenge to create 2-3 sentences in their own language to bring to our meeting before Easter so that we could all experience what it is like to be immersed in a new language.


We have all agreed that we would like to have a language of the half term on display in the hall and held a vote to choose a country. Our suggestions were: France, Poland and Spain. We had a majority vote for Spain so that will be the country that we will celebrate for Summer 1!


We also discussed what the YIs thought should be in a YI kit, our ideas were: badges saying what language we speak, paper and a pencil.


We have our Young Interpreters conference to look forward to in July where we get to learn about how other school's support children with English as an additional language and share the good practice from our school.
