Modern foreign languages
SPELLING BEE The aim of the Spelling Bee is for Year 7 students to practise and improve their vocabulary, spellings, pronunciation and memory skills in the target language (French or Spanish). When participating, students will be given one minute to correctly spell as many words as possible. This event is sponsored by the European Commission and Vocab express. As Gold & Silver winners in both the French and Spanish categories, three of our students (Millie-Mollie,Onni & Areti) earned their place at the Regional Finals of the 2016 Foreign Languages Spelling Bee Competition. The regionals took place in April 2016
They all worked extremely hard throughout the year to reach this level. As a school, we are delighted for them and proud of their achievement.
Each year in July, Year 7 students take part for a day in a variety of workshops including craft, games, cooking/food tasting, and art workshops all geared at improving their cultural understanding of both France & Spain. The canteen usually serves traditional tasty treats at break time and Oakfield students also take part in a Fancy Dress Competition. So much fun to be had by all!!!
