At Merton Infant School we welcome families from a wide range of ethnic minority backgrounds who speak various languages.
Each half term we choose a language to celebrate by learning all about it and it's country of origin in assembly and hold at least one "theme" day during the academic year. During 2019-20 we learnt about Italy and had an Italian themed day. The children really enjoyed making pizza and building their own Leaning Tower of Pisa from art straws!
Previously we learnt about many languages from around the world including Mandarin, Welsh, Finish, Polish, Portuguese, South African, French, Fula, Slovakian to name but a few!
We look forward to learning lots of languages in the forth-coming academic year!
