Denbigh High School

"High achievement for all is our shared responsibility"

University of Bedfordshire EAL Lecture

Twelve students were invited to the University of Bedfordshire to assist in a lecture to Physical Education trainee teachers in students with English as an Additional language. Miss Walczynska and Miss Smith lead the lecture to and gave information on how to cater for students who do not have English as their first language. The students answered the university student’s questions about how they best learn in school and their experiences at Denbigh. They also got a chance to teach the students in their native languages which was rather fun to listen to! Once the lecture had finished, the students were given a tour by the senior lecturer for Physical Education. The tour involved visiting the sports hall, dance studios, sport science labs, fitness suite and the library. It gave a real insight into our students possible futures! Our students behaved extremely well and represented the school excellently.
