European Day of Languages WCS Wells Cathedral Independent School Somerset England

European Day of Languages

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the European Day of Languages, the School’s MFL department invited all year groups in the Senior School to enter three celebratory competitions.

Carson Grevatt-Simpkin (Year 8) came first, Oliver Naylor (Year 8) came second and Archie Blee (Year 9) came third in the challenge to bake a cake that represents the day, a country or a landmark. Michael Dey (Year 7) and William Durrant (Year 10) were the winners of the building category; they were tasked with the construction of a famous landmark using items they had at home. Michael reproduced the Louvre using glass and small ropes, whilst William recreated the Burj Khalifa using marshmallow sticks. Belinda Gifford-Guy (Year 7) won the singing competition with stunning renditions of Ridente La Calma by Mozart, sung in Italian, and An Die Nachtigall by Brahms, sung in German. Mrs Dine’s Year 8 tutor group receive special mention for decorating biscuits with European flags and Milo Brown (Year 9) won the tutor quiz with a top score of 20/20 on the first attempt!

Well done to all.
