Primary school pupils have been learning new languages at special weekend workshops.

Stamford High School is hosting pupils from St Gilbert’s and Malcolm Sargent in Stamford, along with Barnack and Baston primary schools on a six-week language outreach programme.

The children have been learning basic French and Spanish, including how to greet each other, say how they are feeling and talk about family, pets and birthdays.

Modern languages teacher Jacqueline Lewis-Gorman has been running the classes for the last five years and is delighted at the healthy number of pupils keen to learn a language.

She said: “The pupils have been most enthusiastic and have enjoyed putting their knowledge into practice in a fun classroom environment. It is really important to get children enthused about languages at an early age.”
