Y Pant Celebrates Languages Day 2012

Yet another successful Languages Day bonanza. Year 7 were invited to a sumptuous continental feast with entertainment provided by the mega talented Sarah Pugh, Jordan Bryan & Rebecca Davies. The year 8 French group performed a crazy action song which was a real crowd pleaser! The Languages staff and 6th Form were merrily dressed in their European costumes and FiFi the pink poodle made another appearance.
Year 7 poster winners were Regan Lewis, Jack Murlis and Caitlin Wilson. Thanks to all who came and supported this annual linguistic extravaganza.

Y Pant on BBC Wales News for European Languages Day!

Did you see the news last night?  Y Pant School featured on the BBC Wales news at 6:30pm and again at 10:30!  The BBC came in to speak to Head of Modern Foreign Languages Mrs Hoare (or Mordern Foreign Languages according to the BBC – no spell check then?) and also to film her year 13 Spanish class.

The feature – on the decline of languages as an option at GCSE and A-level – was chosen to tie in with European Languages Day.  We had our own European Breakfast in school yesterday for that and pictures will follow soon.  The BBC chose not to point out that Mrs Hoare doesn’t usually wear traditional Spanish dress to teach!

As Mrs Hoare points out, languages (Spanish and French here) are a popular option at both GCSE and A-level at Y Pant.

Click on the picture to see the BBC iPlayer film of the news.  Lawrence Watts and James Watt also have a starring role discussing their experiences learning languages.
