Stamford School - Beginners German Course (St George's Church of England Aided Primary School)

 

Over the four week course students learn to say basic things in German.  Each week a different aspect of German culture is dealt with especially in the run up to Christmas, Halloween etc

 

Aims

 

Promoting German and showing language opportunities at SES.  Students in Y5 and 6 in local primary schools as German is not offered in most primary school.  Primary schools should offer foreign languages but in most cases this is restricted to French and/or Spanish

 

Background

 

We took part in the outreach programme at SHS in 2012 and found that one session was too little to do anything meaningful.  We therefore decided to offer a short course.  It started in November 2013

 

Resources

 

Use of the language lab as the children enjoy it.  IT have been very supportive in ensuring everything works properly.

 

Pupil Involvement

 

9 and 10 years old
