Language Ambassadors

European Day of Languages 2023

To celebrate European Day of Languages, the Language Ambassadors held whole school assemblies, talking about why it was important to learn foreign languages and celebrate diversity of languages and cultures. 

Our ambassadors spoke in their languages and we were lucky enough to hear a wide variety including Polish, Romanian. Urdu, Portuguese and Bulgarian. We also learnt a song in French and British Sign Language. 

International Mother Tongue Day

To celebrate International Mother Tongue Day, the language ambassadors organised Preston Primary's first language fair.

Each ambassador designed their own stall of activities around their chosen language. The stalls featured work from: Ukraine, Portugal, China, Poland, Italy, France and British Sign Language activities. 

Every class across the school attended the fair and spent time exploring the different activities.

Yeovil Twinning Association Visit

The Yeovil Twinning Association visited our school with delegates from Yeovil's twin town, Herblay-sur-Seine in France. 


The visitors were treated to French conversations, pieces of writing and songs from Year 5 before sitting down to tea and cakes with representatives from Year 6.  The children had the opportunity to ask the visitors about life in Herblay-sur-Seine and how their schools and cultures differed from their own.


We look forward to the continued links with Herblay-sur-Seine and renewing relationships over the months and years to come.

European Day of Languages 2022! 


We have had a wonderful day celebrating European Day of Languages. Across the school, each class has enjoyed lots of exciting activities including letter writing to pen pals and creating posters. 


Our Language Ambassadors visited Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4 to share bilingual books as well as teaching the class how to say hello in a variety of languages.

To celebrate International Mother Language Day, the language ambassadors created a short clip to show some of the languages spoken at school. Every child brings a unique attribute that makes up the community within Preston Primary.

At Preston Primary School we have Language Ambassadors who promote the school’s positive ethos in language learning.

Congratulations to our new language ambassadors for this year. These children have been chosen to represent our school as great role models, promoting the importance of language and the diverse world we live in.


Happy New Year 2022

West Abbey Care Home Visit

On Tuesday February 25th, The Language Ambassadors visited West Abbey Care Centre. During their visit, they shared their knowledge about the festival of Mardi Gras. The children wore their masks that they had made that day, and talked openly with the residents about their roles within the school. Helen Calaco (General Manager of West Abbey) stated,” The residents loved seeing the children and it is great to see intergenerational activities taking place within the community.”

Language Ambassadors Deliver Key Stage 2 Assembly


Our Language Ambassador showed great courage and commitment today when they held their first Key Stage 2 Assembly (Years 3 - 6). For many, this was the first time they spoke in front of so many of their peers. They spoke eloquently and with confidence when sharing what Mardi Gras meant to them and how it was celebrated in their native countries.

All KS2 children wore their own Mardi Gras masks to the assembly. They enjoyed singing and dancing to samba music during the assembly and after the assembly the ambassadors led the Mardi Gras Parade.

Ambassadors become storytellers on World Book Day.


During World Book Day this year, Stella and Alvina (Language Ambassadors) from Year 6, read a French book with the children of Oak and Chestnut. The book, 'Je suis trop gros' – I’m too big, depicts a humorous story of an elephant and a giraffe. The children thoroughly enjoyed the story and were even able to repeat some of the French words too. Très Bien!
