Hallo and willkommen to Leighton's new German page!

We hope you enjoy seeing the exciting activities we undertake as a Goethe Institute PASCH primary school.

All our children learn German from the age of two. 


Please see below some pictures of our recent Y5 visit to Cologne!


We also recently featured on a documentary celebrating our 10 years of being a PASCH school. Please watch! We are about 30 minutes in.  

In June we celebrated our yearly German Sommerfest in which we all sang songs, performed short plays and did conversational activities to show our skills at German! Guests included Gina Hall from ALL, Simone Pfliegel from the Goethe Institute London, The Mayor of Cheshire East and a senior representative from Bentley. Please see our photos below!

Also in June of this year we had the results of our entries for the  Oxford German Olympiad 2019!

As well as many children being commended Lydia in Year 6 was highly commended! For this national competetion the children had to draw and in German describe their monster! Photos of our proud winners below. 


Examples of our work can be seen at: 

Also below a picture of Jack Humphries, a former pupil whose hard work and love of languages has led to him being appointed Languages Ambassador at Ruskin High! Gut gemacht Jack!

We also recently started using the Languages Magician webgame to track our progress! Das war super!

Take a look at how it works!
