Language of the Month


The children at Diamond Wood Community Academy come from a range of cultures and backgrounds. As a multi-cultural school it is vital that we prepare children to grow up to make a positive contribution to society.
 At Diamond Wood Community Academy, there are children and adults who speak many different languages. The languages spoken include Czech, English, Hungarian, Punjabi, Polish, Romanian and Russian. We also have children who use a sign language called Makaton. There are many reasons we should know about each other’s languages, including the following:-
  • To give bilingual children the opportunity to demonstrate their language skills
  • To enhance the status of bilingual children
  • To show respect for each other’s languages and cultures
  • To give parents the chance to be actively involved in their children's learning
  • To broaden the language skills of all the children and staff.
Each half term a new language will be introduced. Teachers will put up a display in their classrooms and they will do short, fun activities to teach several words from the language.
We have introduced the children to the new languages and displays have been put up in classrooms and in the corridor by main reception.
