BON JOURNEE FOR BRITANNIA VILLAGE PUPILS

05/08/2010

More than 30 lucky pupils from Britannia Village Primary School recently got the chance to visit Lille, France as part of an innovative approach to their modern foreign languages curriculum, using £3,000 sponsorship by London City Airport.

 

The project was based around ‘Voices in the Park’, a text by author Anthony Browne and involved the children learning vocabulary associated with parks in their local surroundings, character behaviours, clothes and the weather in addition to developing French conversation. London City Airport provided funding to encourage local young people to consider their environment, study European geography and engage in learning a European language, skills which are useful for employment at the Airport.  The Airport was also on hand to support teachers’ language skills, with a group of staff visiting London City for a bi-lingual tour prior to the actual trip.

 

London City Airport has worked alongside Britannia Village Primary School ever since it opened and supports programmes such as the Education Excellence programme, aimed at raising aspirations and attainment levels of local students.

 

Kiel Richardson, Assistant Head Teacher and co-organiser of the trip said ‘This is a strong demonstration of creative curriculum in action which culminates in a memorable visit for the children to experience that places them in foreign surroundings where they can test out their language and investigative skills’.
