“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

European Week of Languages

At The Downley School, we celebrated The European Day of Languages with an entire week of language activities!


The European Day of Languages was first set up by the European Council in 2001. Now, it takes place every year on 26th September. It celebrates and promotes language learning and linguistic diversity.

At The Downley School, we decided to celebrate this with an entire week of language activities. This included a Spanish Wake and Shake, doing the register in different languages, taster sessions of European languages that weren’t Spanish and Key Stage 2 visited Key Stage 1 to teach them some Spanish! Everyone really enjoyed the week; have a look in the photo gallery at some of the things we got up to by clicking here
