Languages in the Community - Primary Conference
Grey Coat has proudly hosted its first Primary Conference for Modern Foreign Languages (MFL).
The purpose of the conference was to introduce the borough's primary teachers to the MFL department at GCH, to provide language training for primary teachers and to promote collaborative working practices in the implementation of the Key Stage Two Scheme of Work.
The conference included information about Primary Language initiatives, a sample lesson delivered to teachers in the target language by a native (Spanish) speaker and a group session for planning and sharing ideas.
One of the key action points from the conference was to ensure that teachers had easy access to materials, support and advice, and we hope that our new Primary web page will provide a forum for teachers (both primary and secondary) to continue to share ideas in the future.
Grey Coat was privileged to be working with our Westminster colleagues and the feedback from attendees has been extremely positive.
MFL teachers Louise Miller (AST in MFL), Claire Stacey (Community Links) and Carla San Julian (Spanish and French teacher) worked closely with Flavia Lambert (Deputy Head, GCH), Sally Wicks (Senior School Development Office, Westminster City Council) and Susi Sahmland (AST, Pimlico School) in preparing the conference.
We are all very much looking forward to the next conference and hope to run future conferences on a half-termly basis.
