Y3 had the pleasure of playing some language games with two visiting students from UCL who introduced the children to Mandarin Chinese. PhD students worked with Y3 to enhance their researched on how children learn foreign languages. Children enjoyed learning Mandarin and were very excited that they will learn more in Y5 and Y6. UCL have made a promise to return next year and have pledged a book voucher for the classes.
