There are over 6,000 languages in the world. Every year on the 26th of September the European Day of Languages aims to celebrate this. Pupils will be taking part in a variety of activities within their French classes. There will also be 5 daily challenges to get involved in. All you have to do is complete the daily challenge and bring your evidence to Miss McBride or Mrs Cochrane to claim a merit and a prize.
