20/09/2021We all remember taking part in French lessons at school; “le chat est sur la table, le singe est dans l’arbre” and whilst the content of language learning may have changed, the importance of it has not diminished. Being able to converse in another language holds so many benefits, not least to be able to order that ice cream when on holiday! At Woolmer Hill School, we greatly value the importance of students studying an additional language and they do so from their first days in Year 7. GCSE options are offered and encouraged in additional languages but also home languages and to date we have seen students taking Urdu, Polish, Bulgarian and Hungarian at GCSE level.
Confirming our love of languages and cultural diversity, we will be celebrating the European Day of Languages on 26th September by hosting a whole week of linguistic challenges and quizzes. See the slides below for the great enrichment challenges that are open to our Key Stage 3 students. As well as these we are also running a range of fun activities including a quiz to guess which staff member is speaking which language and a “Name that Language” game where students will hear a familiar song sung in another language. On Friday 24th all lessons will begin with a language challenge – students will be shown a picture of a flag and a short phrase in that country's language and they will need to guess the country, it’s capital city, the language and the meaning of the phrase.
Lots of house points and prizes are up for grabs, so buena suerte et bonne chance!

9/09/2021**NOTICE ABOUT ROADWORKS & TRAFFIC SIGNALS ON A287**
We have been informed that from Monday 20th September for approximately four months there will be roadworks along the A287. This is to replace old metal gas mains.
The engineers will be working on the A287 Hindhead Road, starting at the junction with Heather Way and will progress southbound to Critchmere Hill. For everyone’s safety, there will be temporary multi-way signals around the site, which will move along the road as the project progresses. These will be manually controlled 7am to 7pm daily, to assist with traffic flow but there are likely to be delays in this area at peak times.
SGN have a dedicated webpage, https://bit.ly/3gwUao0 to ensure the local community are aware of the situation and updates.
SGN apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and would like to thank you for your understanding and patience enabling them to carry out these essential works.
