P5: Language II trips

 In the fifth year of primary, the school organises  ‘second language trips’. Each pupil takes part in the trip corresponding to his/her LII language. The trips form part of the pedagogical projects in our school. The second language trips’ objectives are:

  • to develop the child’s autonomy and social relationships within the group and outside of standard learning situations and through the 2nd language;
  • to be open to the unknown and ready to accept different ways of life;
  • to be ready to discover an environment, area, country, culture through a 2nd language in all the circumstances of everyday life;
  • to reinforce the European spirit of the group and learning directly linked with the programs of Second language, Discovery of the World, European Hours and Ethics.

The end of primary school L2 trip gives the students their first real opportunityto use the language learnt during five days of English immersion.  Students extend classwork: listening; speaking; reading and writing in English. The aim is to develop more understanding, confidence/fluency and motivation. The trip is closely linked to the work covered in Discovery of the world, European Hours and ethics/religion.
Please find below a short introduction to each of the trips.
