Language of the month
We are proud of being a school that has children from many different ethnic backgrounds. We see each child as an individual and aim to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment in which they can flourish and realise their potential. We value and respect all the languages and faiths within our community. To celebrate this we have a ‘Language of the Month’ in school where children can learn simple phrases.
Our ‘language of the month’ board in the hall. The children tried to write some numbers and words in Yoruba, which is the currant language we are learning. Yoruba is mainly spoken in south west Nigeria (West Africa), but it is also spoken by Nigerian communities in Britain, Europe and America. At Nell Gwynn we have several children who speak or understand some Yoruba, which is spoken at home by family or friends.
