Welcome to the Languages Challenge
It has now been validated as part of the National Children's University for those people registered on the programme!
The Languages Challenge is for any pupil wanting to work on their languages according to their own interests, needs and personal circumstances. We are looking for commitment, creativity and enthusiasm. You may have an older pupil to act as mentor, who will help you along the way. You can use it for any language - either one you're learning at school, but want to explore further or perhaps one you speak at home.
There are 7 categories:
- Learning the Basics,
- Using your Talents,
Each category has a choice of tasks. You must complete at least one task from each category.
Tasks are worth 5,10 or 15 points. To successfully complete the Languages Challenge, you are aiming for a total of 100 points.
You must keep evidence of each task in your portfolio. This could be in the form of photographs, videos, or writing. You will also need to write up an overall self-evaluation explaining what you have achieved and what you have learnt. The whole portfolio will be submitted to the designated Routes into Languages East teacher in your school. You may be asked to choose one of your outcomes to be performed, shown or presented to parents and visitors at the Children's University Graduation Ceremony or a celebration in your school.
