Welcome to our Modern Foreign Languages page!

The Y3 and Y4 children are currently doing a session of Italian Language every week, in the afternoon. In the Autumn Term, we have been learning the Italian greetings, how to say our name and ask others what their name is and we are currently learning and consolidating the names of the main colours in Italian. 

We are very happy to say "Buon giorno" or "Buon pomeriggio" when the register is taken, we wish each other "Buon appetito" at lunch and we say "Arrivederci! A presto!" when we say good bye. We hope the children are taking these phrases home with them and teaching their families a variety of Italian words and phrases. 

In our "Singing in Languages" after school club, we sing songs in a multitude of languages: Italian, German, French, Spanish and Romanian. We make sure we understand what we are singing about and very often we learn words and phrases from those songs and use them in different contexts. 

Have a look at these clips, showcasing the extraordinary language skills of the children of St James School.
