“Year 5 studied Italian and designed their own pizzas using the correct Italian vocabulary.

“Year 6 looked at Mandarin Chinese and completed a maths lesson in Mandarin, learned how to use chopsticks and practised calligraphy skills writing Chinese characters.

“Our complex needs resource base used their Welsh-speaking teaching assistant to support them in learning the colours in Welsh and making some special Welsh cakes.
